    Terminator shudder bait

    You nailed it. Lol. Want a Zell Rowland 3 hook zara spook? I have probably 10. They haven't been made since the mid 90's i think.

    Terminator shudder bait

    Well i hate to be the type person who gets people hooked on stuff, but, Ebay has more good deals on fishing gear than you have ever seen your damn life. And there are lures that you've never seen or heard of. A couple weeks ago i found a japanese tackle supplier selling megabass vision 110s for $14 each, plus $6.80 shipping. Thats a couple bucks cheaper than most that are in the $22-25 range with free shipping. But when you buy 2 or 3 & they only charge $.50 for the additional shipping, then its a smokin deal. I got 3, with shipping for less than $50. So i basically got 1 free. I get 20 packs of mustad ewg trebles for $5 to $7 a pack. Lots more good deals on there once you learn how to look for stuff.

    Most are tackle hoarders. That's why the business is so good. That's what gives them the dollars to develop new stuff. The trend I've noticed in the last 10 yrs or so, is the down sizing of striper/musky baits for bass. The A-rig, whopper plopper & pencil popper are a few.

    Terminator shudder bait

    That's very true Doug, but some baits work very well under certain conditions & at certain times of the year. Nothing works everytime, all the time. If you don't try new stuff, you might be missing out big time.

    Terminator shudder bait

    I just bought one of these last week. New design on the old chatterbait type lure. Haven't tried it yet, but it is definitely different from the metal bladed jig. It has a cupped plastic lip & split ring attachment, so you could change weights & colors by changing the jig with just 1 lip. I will try to get out & use it this weekend & see how it works. Anybody else tried it yet?

    Fox squirrel tail

    I had heard they bought tails, but didnt pay much. I have some beagle hair flies around somewhere that i tied years ago for fnf, lol. I bought some small tightline hair jigs last year that are made with "false chupacabra" hair.

    Mega bass vs lucky craft jerk baits

    They can make a big difference. Esp in real cold water. I've got on a crankbait bite by stalling it out after hitting rock or wood. Having the bait hover or slowly rise after deflecting off cover was the difference. I was using a squarebill crankbait & had gotten a couple bites on the pause, so i put a larger hook on the front & 3 dots. Ended up catching 5 after modifying it, & they were eating it whole, not nipping like before. I like both megabass & Lc jerks. Another i like is the Duo realis, its a nice looking bait & catches fish. On a side note, there is a seller on ebay selling megabass 110s for $14. The catch is, $6.80 shipping. He is still cheaper than everybody else tho, esp if you buy more than 1.

    Top Water, then what?...

    The falling water & temps should get them feeding up soon.

    Jack hammer bladed jig

    Its the original, made by evergreen. Zman sells the jack hammer under their brand, but it's coming from Japan no matter where you get it. I don't usually throw the chatterbait until late fall, when the water gets in the 50's. I like to throw it back in the creeks & on flats. I use bluegill colors, a small swimbait trailer, & throw it in stained water whenever possible. Ive caught 5lb + fish from norris, cherokee, douglas & loudon on it, it works everywhere.

    Jack hammer bladed jig

    Anybody use an evergreen jack hammer chatterbait? I found them on ebay for 10.99 & ordered a couple. I know they've been out awhile, but i wasn't feeling the $15+ price tag. Search evergreen jack hammer on ebay, hit the filter tab on the top left, check lowest price + shipping & it should pop up.

    Top Water, then what?...

    Go find your nearest creek arm, or go upstream towards the river that feeds the lake. The topwater bite usually starts there. Try a buzzbait or whopper plopper. They will let you know pretty quick which one they prefer. If they are really shallow, you may have to go to a frog & throw it on the bank, then ease it in the water to avoid spooking them. The frog is a very subtle topwater bait & works good in shallow water. Like B said, if they won't bite topwater or the bite fades, the fluke is a good way to catch some more. I like to use bright colors ( chart, pink,white) so that i can see my bait on a long cast. I throw the fluke on 20lb braid with no leader, so i can get it waayy out there. I throw the frog on 30lb braid, unless its around grass. 14lb mono or 30 lb braid for the rest.
