What are some of your favorite and most difficult hard baits to find?

What are some that have been discontinued….and/or the maker has gone out of business?

You can still find them on E-Bay, but one of my favorite winter time baits is a Chatterstick!

Chrome black back baby ashley


Life journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved state.
But rather skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "holy carp what a ride!"

The original Mister Twister Hawg Frawgs. You can find the new Hawg Frawg all day long on Ebay but the original mold Frawg with the original plastic formulation is super hard to find! When you do find them they are usually in the cardboard pack of 2 Frawgs and they are waaaaaaay over priced. Last time I found any of them in any numbers was at a little bait shop near Texoma about 6 years ago. He had a whole bag of green pumpkin and black sitting outside like they were going to be thrown in the trash. I asked him how much he wanted for them and he said $2. There ended up being almost 50 in the bag.

The Rebel Mid Wee R will set you back a $20 bill if you find them as well.

Original Zara Gossa. Many didn't like it but I used it so much I could make it do tricks as a kid. Bass had no chance. But then my mom left my giant tackle box outside and some prick stole it. Hope he fell into it face first.


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

No. The Mid Wee R looks just like a Deep Wee R but just a smaller lip. They look like a ordinary shad style crankbait. There are a couple of used ones right now on Ebay for under $20 with shipping which is a dang good price considering they are like new. New in the pack they will cost you $20 though.

The old Booyah boogie chatterbaits. The hook was made on a cable. Fish can’t throw it. If anyone has some hit me up!

I don't think the guys who grew up throwing the 6xd's and 10xd's could handle throwing a hot lips most the day.
