Luhr Jensen 3/4 ounce Hot Lips. None of the new deep running crankbaits will let you slam them into the brushpiles without hanging up like the Hot LIps.

It’s exactly what they do, they buy them out just to get rid of the competition. Gene Larew is another one of their acquisitions and it’s not looking good.

Flipping Bait...
Yamamoto Big Ika (it said 5" on the package, but was more like 6") This thing was a beast in the trees, weeds, etc.

Spinner Bait...
T1 Terminator Spinner Bait

Worm...
Haven't had one that I couldn't find a replacement for...just yet
But color...there was this mixture on a zoom finesse worm that was like motor oil w/ red flake. Special color blend. Found it once in WI and never seen it again since.

And dare I say it...
Flying Lure the original, I've seen them online but they aren't the same as the OG. These things were my dock magic. Laugh all you want, but those little bastards slid into spots like the video showed. Caught many a large fish with them.

No doubt! Caught a lot of big fish on those, from Texas to Florida, to the Potomac River. Uncle Josh's Porker - a similar bait - never came close to the Pork-O's results. Still have a few colors and sizes left that I have reboiled and resalted through the years, but not in the sizes/colors I really like.
