The smart swimbait fishermen have learned that soft plastics swimbait can tear on their first use. Many of us now only use silicone swimbaits, they are virtually indestructible.f you use swimbaits here are two of the very best. www.realprey.com This gentleman will fill any order or special order. Contact him on his website. The second bait is avilble on Swimbait KING MIKE BUCCA'S website. Boys until Mike started selling these they were almost impossible to get which caused price gouging by swimbaiters that had them. The website is Bullshad.com is selling soft minnow baits of SILCONE. interest youad.com. Look for drops when they appear on the website. Buccas BULLSHAD are some of the most reasonable priced ones on the market. If I was still fishing tournaments, I'd throw conventional till I had a good limit, then I'd pick up a 5" Bullgill or Bullshad. My favorite is a 6" Bullshad 4x4 that is nothing but a big square bill that comes thru cover. Using a large swimbait can result in big kickers in your bag.

The reason I decided to post this is that now some companies are also making conventional lures made of Silicone. Here is a site selling them look thru them. They look good to me. Good Luck, Lord I wish I was back in Texas. Trump 2024

Yes the Realprey swimbaits are great. He makes a solid product. I fish the chaddletail that he makes. His correct website is www.Realpreyswimbaits.com. You are absolutely spot on about the Bucca 4x4. It catches fish and so does the 4x4 deep as well. I actually prefer the deep version. I got in on the last drop and scored some of the Bacca soft baits that Bucca recently started making. Of all the Burrito products I like the Baccas and the Gills.

Thanks fellas. My case is terminal. I was told my expiration date was Dec 2018. Guess I failed to follow directions. My care at the New Orleans VA has been wonderful. It is a struggle and I haven't given up. I atribute my being here to the prayers of my friends and God must have a task for me. I won't give up. So far I've had 6 rounds of Chemo(7 months ea) and 2 rounds of radiation. (5 days a week for several months) Forgive me but I can't remember how many weeks. The chemo I'm on nowq isa totally difderewnt. Itake 6 pills twice a day. Its name is Capecitabine. It's rough as hell. You take 12 a day everyday for two weeks and one week off. This is a CYCLE.I'm on my second cycle and am still losing weight. Friends never doubt chemo is the devil. We all walk thru live oblivious to whats around us until you or a family member get cancer I pray none of you go thru this. God Bless you all. Nothing like a bunch of Texans, In Texas,I felt everyone was my friend until they proved they weren't. In the rest of the South you have to keep an eye on new people. Most are worthless.Take care.

Asa often as I can. I've stopped using conventional entirely. During this heat I suggest you try soft plastics or silicone. I love bluegill lures. Soft ones with an Owner beast hook that is weighted. I suggest Little Creeper Swimbaits sunfish. I kill them on that, because it can be slow rolled on bottom. I love thge weighted Owner swimbait hook with the spinner for flash. May I also suggest MegaBass
MAGDRAFT in thwe 6" Size. You might also watch the Chris Zaldain videos on fishing these lures on Youtube. If you really want to get some great info on swimbait fishing go to www.tacticalbassin.com. These guys will introduce you to beginner lujres. Reasonably priced ones. If I can offfer any held drop me a line. lehall_2003@yahoo.com In the 70's I won a tx on Conroe by throwing a DB3 under boat docks. I wish I had a Magdraft them. Zaldain is a master living near Fort Worth.
