Just take a look at the new surfaces inned comparison to the aged lures, the brand-new cutters on spinnerbaits as well as buzzbaits. As well as consider the shade of the brand-new worms we have now, why would certainly we ever need anything else? Why on the planet would we ever before make use of those aged attractions? I can tell you why ... they apprehend fish!!
Keep in mind exactly how pleased with the old appeals we used to be? How positive we made use of to be in aged dependable? Well, simply due to the fact that these new attractions have come out does not indicate our old appeals will not apprehend bass. It could mean they also work much better compared to the new appeals.

I make use of to utilize a little attraction called a Kelly's Striper. It is an attraction that a buddy as well as I both used as well as have actually caught numerous bass on throughout the years. Some of these bass were huge, 7, 8, as well as 9 extra pounds. Jim, my pal apprehended the 9 pounder on one, this remains in Ohio by the way. They were an excellent little lure as well as all of a sudden I stopped utilizing it. I spoke to various other anglers regarding it and also one claimed he lost a large bass on one and it curved the hook so I quit making use of the Kelly's Striper. Besides, it was already rigged with incorporate it as well as no pro would certainly make use of anything like that appeal.
Well, wait a min, Jim as well as I have actually caught thousands of bass on this lure. We have captured 7, 8, and 9 pound fish as well as never ever bent the hook. Possibly, merely maybe, something else curved the hook besides a large bass on this other anglers attraction. So, why did I gave up utilizing the Kelly's Stripe? I have no idea! I merely don't know! I truly uncommitted that the pro's typically aren't using them, they caught bass for me. I do not care if they are currently rigged with hooks, they apprehended bass for me. Below's the bottom line ... they captured bass for me!
Here is my issue with every one of this, if the appeal apprehended bass for you, why typically aren't you using it? Merely due to the fact that it is aged does not suggest that appeal that made use of to be your favorite still does not apprehend bass. It caught bass for you all those years you utilized it. As well as really? Really? Are the brand-new attractions any kind of far better or are they simply newer? Do they actually catch more bass? I doubt it! If they do it is probably due to the fact that you are fishing them greater than your aged lure. That old attraction was fantastic in it's time, wasn't it? Well, presume what? It is still an excellent appeal and also still catches bass.
