What is it? As the name implies, Old School Baits bring back the action, look and fish-catching ability that the balsa precursors to the modern hard bait had — and still have. What does it do? Remember the Bagley Honey B? How about the Cordell Big O or the original Smithwick’s Devil Horse? Old School Baits offer everything that these balsa beauties did, and they do it at a reasonable price point. To get those classic lures, you’d have to hit up eBay and pay through the nose, and the thing might not even be in that great of condition.

What is it? Owner’s Pivot Head. What does it do? It brings a new dimension to the swing head craze by offering a head shape and weights that are more conducive to swimming. How do I use it?

What is it? Missile Baits’ newest shape, the D-Stroyer. They will be in Dick's Sporting Goods stores and online retailers next month. What does it do?

These assets lend the D-Stroyer a high degree of versatility.

Throw it around any shallow fishy looking cover like you would any other square bill to show the fish something a little different.
