Merely consider the brand-new surfaces contrasted to the old appeals, the new blades on spinnerbaits and also buzzbaits. And also look at the shade of the new worms we have now, why would certainly we ever require anything else? Why worldwide would we ever before utilize those old appeals? I can inform you why ... they catch fish!!
Bear in mind just how pleased with the old appeals we relied on to be? Just how confident we utilized to be in aged dependable? Well, simply due to the fact that these brand-new attractions have actually come out doesn't imply our aged appeals won't capture bass. It could suggest they also function far better than the brand-new appeals. Just what a shame we placed them away!
I utilize to utilize a little appeal called a Kelly's Striper. It is an attraction that a pal as well as I both relied on and also have actually caught hundreds of bass on throughout the years. Several of these bass allowed, 7, 8, as well as 9 extra pounds. Jim, my friend apprehended the 9 pounder on one, this remains in Ohio by the way. They were a great little appeal and all of an unexpected I quit using it. I spoke to various other anglers about it and also one claimed he lost a huge bass on one and also it bent the hook so I give up utilizing the Kelly's Striper. Besides, it was already rigged with hooks in it as well as no pro would certainly make use of anything like that attraction.
Well, hesitate a min, Jim as well as I have actually apprehended countless bass on this attraction. We have actually captured 7, 8, and also 9 pound fish and also never ever bent the hook. Possibly, merely possibly, something else angled the hook besides a huge bass on this various other anglers appeal. So, why did I quit using the Kelly's Stripe? I do not know! I simply do not know! I actually don't care that the pro's typically aren't using them, they captured bass for me. I do not care if they are already rigged with hooks, they captured bass for me. Here's the bottom line ... they captured bass for me!
Here is my point with all this, if the lure captured bass for you, why typically aren't you using it? Merely because it is old doesn't suggest that attraction that made use of to be your favorite still does not capture bass. It captured bass for you all those years you utilized it. As well as truly? Really? Are the brand-new attractions any sort of much better or are they simply more recent? Do they truly capture even more bass? I doubt it! If they do it is probably due to the fact that you are fishing them greater than your aged attraction. That aged appeal was wonderful in it's time, had not been it? Well, presume what? It is still a wonderful attraction and still captures bass.
