What is it? V&M Wild Thang, a jumbo worm with Classic-winning credentials. What does it do? No, it wasn’t used in his Classic win, but Classic champ Cliff Pace wanted a big worm that was truly a big worm with lots of appeal, so he designed the Wild Thang.

Hot Product Press: Bondy Perch

Apr 14, 2015

What is it? The Bondy Perch. What does it do? It’s a drop shot bait that’s more versatile than its name implies. How do I use it? Yes, we know it looks upside-down in the picture, but it’s not.

Mar 24, 2015

What is it? O.S.P.’s bent Minnow, a funky crescent-shaped topwater that the bass in your pond have likely never seen. It’ll also work under the surface, but just. Don’t think you’ll get it to dive very deep. But that’s not the point of it.

Hot Product Press: Old School Baits

Mar 17, 2015

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?

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.
