Whopper Plopper 75!! Sneak Preview!!

The Whopper Plopper is coming in an all-new 75mm size! This bait is shorter but bulkier and has an awesome action! Are you amongst the masses of anglers that have fallen in love with the Whopper Plopper? You're going to love this new version!

The 75 is a completely different profile than its larger siblings. While only 75mm long it boasts a much wider and taller body shape with a large, bulbous head. The result is a bait that pushes an aggressive wake, creating a large presence in the water, and its paired with a larger tail so you get that deep Whopper Plopper sound you've come to expect from the larger sized baits. 

The bait won't officially release until ICAST this week and will be available to the public shortly after but you can pre-order today!

The bait is equipped with heavy-wire size 4 hooks so fishing the bait on the right rod is critical to your hookup ratio. We recommend a true medium action 7'-7'2" rod, even going as far as a medium crankbait rod.

How To Rig A Senko: Unique Tricks From Beginner to Advanced

Why is the Senko so good?! What makes it work EVERYWHERE? Here's what you need to know about rigging for different conditions and applications. 

This bait can be used in virtually every situation a bass fisherman will face. Its phenomenal as a finesse bait with 4 lb test but its just as good on heavy braid and a flippin stick!

Hardbaits, Softbaits, and more... Spring Gear Review!

Spring is a great time to try new lures! We try as many as we possibly can and this handful made the cut after months of testing and experimentation. 

If you're looking to try something different this Spring, these are all excellent choices. From swimbaits to finesse baits to deep cranks, you're going to like these picks! Here are our thoughts on them...

Megabass Hazedong Swimbait: http://bit.ly/2CIwgzt 
Tight Kicking swimbait for an ultra finesse presentation. Works extremely well when slow fishing. 

Damiki Armor Shad: http://bit.ly/2KtPDAT
Action lands between the Keitech 2.8 and Hazedong. Ultra versatile and a great alternative if your fish are seeing a lot of anglers throwing the 2.8

Dredger 22.5 Deep Crank: http://bit.ly/2I8xOcA
This Berkley bait goes extremely deep for its size. If you're looking for a bait that dives into similar depths as the 10XD but with half the size, this is the one for you! It also has a unique high-pitch rattle sound that works extremely well. 

IMX Pro Crankbait 906 CBR Rod: http://bit.ly/2og0BmK
This rod is great for mid to full size Crankbaits. Virtually anything diving in the 7-20 foot depth range can be thrown on this setup. 

Reaction Innovations Shiver Shot: http://bit.ly/2JCpY7S
The bait is a small swimbait profile but with a forked tail. It works great as a dropshot bait as well as a tiny fluke option. This bait is a must try!

Damiki Axe Blade: http://bit.ly/2w2uB9t
The Axe Blade is an incredibly versatile tail spinner. With an extra hook in the back this bait works really well for catching those fish that are just slapping at the bait. With a willow blade instead of a small Colorado its also a different sound and vibration profile than other tail spins.
