Excellent Cold Weather Bass Lure
Used this lure for the first time today 3/3/07. I have used silver buddies before, but this is a much better lure. I used the all silver version of the lure, have not tried or tested any of the others. I was very impressed by its tight wobble, which produced two keeper largemouth in 37-38 degree surface water temperatures. We found a flat in about 30 feet of water and i bottom bounced the lure to produce the fish. It is also a good lure type to use when vertical jigging over structure as this type seems to hang up less than a silver buddy. I don't know why that was. The flash of this lure is much better than a silver buddy due to the quality finish of the lure. The red hooks are another great feature of this lure, which is better than a silver buddy. My brother used his regular silver buddy with not even a bite. I was able to land 2 keeper largemouth in high winds and choppy water. This lure performs when nothing else is getting any hits.

Best lure in my fishing box
I bought all three sizes and caught fish on all of them.
The weight of the lures are great for fishing the bottom
and casting for walleyes.

This is by far the most versatile and consistent lure whenever fish are on or near the bottom. Wonderful in winter months in Virginia on Lake Anna. In one day this winter, Strippers, Crappie, Large Mouth Bass, and even numerous Channel Cat were boated in 25-35 feet of water. When the Strippers went back down to 20-30 feet in June, feeding on Herring and Shad fry, it excelled again. With all the other rigs available; it is truly, the "Standby".

Any fish that feeds on "fry". In our lakes, shad or herring. This past winter, one trip, I caught Strippers, Large mouth Bass, Crappies, and channel cat without moving the boat. This was vertical jigging.
I've caught a lot of bass on this lure a few years back but haven't used them since. Not that I wouldn't use them. They have great action and you can feel the vibration in the water and every bite as well.
THE LENGTH IS IN PROPORTION TO THE WEIGHT. IT IS LISTED ON THE BASS PRO WEB PAGE . AS I RECALL 5/8 OZ WAS 2 1/2 INCHES, THE 1/4 OZ IS ABOUT 1 1/2 INCHES. I USE THE 5/8 MOST OF THE TIME AND IT WORKS GREAT IT IS ABOUT 3 INCHES LONG
IT HAS VERY LITTLE AFFECT FOR VERTICLE JIGING LIKE I DO. IT MAY AFFECT THE DIVING ANGLE IF YOU USE IT FOR CASTING. I REPLACE THE SNAP IT COMES WITH WITH A SPLIT RING FOR ADDED STRENGTH. I USE THE FRONT TWO HOLES FOR VERTICLE JIGING AND IT IS A GREAT LURE FOR ALL FISH
It affects the action of the lure. In the most forward hole the action will be tighter than the rear hole. It will also affect the action of the lure when being pumped upward while jigging up and down. To affect the depth while casting and retrieving you should count the lure down to the desired depth before beginning your retrieve. The lure will fall at a rate of about one foot per second.
i live here in new jersey,,i recently just started fishing fresh water again,,how do i know which color lure to use,,or is it a trial and error process,,i mean there are alot of colors to chose from...
I USE IT FROM 10 TO 50 FEET VERTICLE JIGING. I USE ALL COLORS BUT FEEL IT IS THE VIBRATING AND ACTION THAT WORKS OVER COLOR. I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY CAN SEE AT 50 FEET, BUT ALL COLORS ARE GREAT AND THEY CATCH EVERYTHING THAT SWIMS
What are your baitfish present? That is the question. You really can't go wrong with either silver or gold in the combinations. I personally think the Gold/Chartreuse combination is a great one, but I have been alongside another guy throwing Silver/Black and we had equal hookups. I think the Chartreuse is great for poor water conditions.
I have only used the nickel/black, gold, and nickel, however i can tell you this bait catches fish. I have had the most luck on the nickel and the nickel/black. I have had some fish on the gold but not as many. You never know what you will catch. I would use the nickel or nickel/black and see what they does for you. I fish this bait about 1' off the bottom so it will get caught in the bottom so watch out! Good luck!
