We got our first look at these products in April and have been trying to keep them under wraps for a bit. We've actually caught some real nice fish on one of the baits already and are interested to throw another shortly.
The first new bait we like is the Coontail worm. Designed with the help of Elite Series pro Russ Lane, he wanted a bait he could fish on a shaky head that had some more bulk to it but would still give him good hooksets with a lightwire hook. It's similar to other ringed baits on the market but markably different as well. It's short at 4 3/4 inches and it has a unique spiral design at its core. The worm coils up through the rings and that seems to give it a nice wiggle as well as some rigging options for good hooksets. It comes in 10 colors. We've caught some bass to 5 pounds on it already this spring and summer and like that it survives multiple fish. Jeff Kriet told us he was going to win at least $100,000 on this worm.
The other new bait in their lineup is the Buzzing Warmouth. Based off their popular bed-fishing plastic, they added some kicking/swimming legs to it so now it can be a bed fishing bait and a buzzing toad lure to be fished over grass and other cover. The feet also feature fins so it has a real subtle appeal to the commotion it creates. The dense nose allows for better hooking options with different hooks like screw locks.
They also added 4 new colors to the Warmouth line and 6 new colors to the Cane Thumper. They also added a swimbait head for both fresh and saltwater use with a super strong Gamakatsu hook, wide roundbend throat and angled upward eyelet.
