$50 For A rubber/Plastic swimbait

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I'd say I keep the soft plastics to a disposable price of under $2 each. However, I think I am concerned with what is on the end of my line no matter what it is. I use the highest quality hooks and line I can find but somehow, I am a bit more conservative with lures. But for good reason.. 


2 weeks ago surf fishing, I let someone use my rod to take a few casts and upon the 2nd or 3rd cast I heard, "whoops". Looking up my 9" Musky Mania doc is gone. I immediately said no problem and put on the cheapest tsunami-soft plastic bait I could find in my bucket. 



Confidence catches fish! The rest of it is just there to keep us busy.

I pay close to that for some of the Z-man baits, but only because they're damn-near indestructible and won't get ripped up after a few schoolies like some baits. 

Yup…indestructible plastic baits would qualify as ‘game changer’ - $2.00 each it is :th: 

Show someone how to catch striped bass and they'll be ready to fish anywhere.
Show someone where to go striped bass fishing and you'll have a desperate report chaser with loose lips.

You don’t want to know how many big bass have been caught on FinSFish and Sluggos…they even ate them back when they were much less than $1 each. Bass aren’t complicated, but new social media anglers are apparently very, very gullible :laugh: Umm…it’s not your lure, dumb ass…bass will eat a 6” bomber or a bucktail covered hook or a flashy piece of metal with a hook on the back - if you buy a $50 rubber lure, someone should take you surf rod away and beat you with it.
