Do you remember the old go-to lures that you relied on to make use of on a normal basis? The old dependable? Your preferred attractions of days gone by. Do you still utilize them? If you resemble many of us those aged lures are most likely put in a deal with box someplace as well as haven't been made use of in a long period of time. Do you even recognize where they are now?
We merely don't need those old appeals anymore, do we? We have these new fangled appeals that catch fish and do about everything we need any kind of attraction to do. Merely look at the brand-new finishes inned comparison to the aged appeals, the brand-new blades on spinnerbaits as well as buzzbaits. As well as consider the color of the brand-new worms we have now, why would we ever before need anything else? Why around the world would certainly we ever before rely on those aged appeals? I can inform you why ... they apprehend fish!!
Remember exactly how proud of the aged lures we relied on to be? Just how confident we made use of to be in aged reliable? Well, just due to the fact that these new lures have actually come out doesn't imply our old appeals won't catch bass. It could suggest they even work much better compared to the new appeals. What a shame we placed them away!
I use to make use of a little attraction called a Kelly's Striper. It is an appeal that a friend and also I both made use of and also have actually captured numerous bass on for many years. A few of these bass were huge, 7, 8, as well as 9 extra pounds. Jim, my friend caught the 9 pounder on one, this is in Ohio incidentally. They were a good little lure as well as all of an unexpected I stopped using it. I talked to other anglers concerning it as well as one claimed he shed a huge 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 and also no pro would certainly use anything like that appeal.
Well, wait a minute, Jim and I have captured thousands of bass on this appeal. We have actually apprehended 7, 8, and 9 pound fish as well as never curved the hook. Possibly, just maybe, another thing bent the hook besides a large bass on this other anglers appeal. So, why did I quit relying on the Kelly's Red stripe? I do not know! I merely have no idea! I really uncommitted that the pro's typically aren't utilizing them, they captured bass for me. I don't care if they are currently rigged with hooks, they captured bass for me. Here's the bottom line ... they caught bass for me!
Here is my issue with all this, if the attraction caught bass for you, why aren't you using it? Merely since it is old doesn't mean that appeal that relied on to be your fave still doesn't catch bass. It caught bass for you all those years you used it. And truly? Truly? Are the brand-new lures any far better or are they merely more recent? Do they really apprehend even more bass? I doubt it! If they do it is probably due to the fact that you are fishing them greater than your old attraction. That aged lure was fantastic in it's time, had not been it? Well, guess exactly what? It is still an excellent lure and still apprehends bass.
