Heddon Bayou Boogie Lure
When Nothing Else Works
I have had one of these in my tackle box for over 30 years maybe longer. I use constantly Feb-April. Great to cast on windy days. I can keep shallow and stay out of a great deal of aquatic plants and for some reason does not get to tangle in plant anyway. I love this lure. Caught a 9.06 lb bass Feb 28. Have been catching bass on this every day for the past few weeks. I am always afraid I am going to lose my original lure, so I am buying more now

This is one of those lures that has been and will continue to be around for years to come. It has been a steady producer for me for over 20 years on several Texas lakes, including, PK, Texoma, Whitney, Lewisville, Ray Roberts, Grapevine, and Tawakoni.
The shad model has been an excellent utility lure for black bass, yellow bass, stripers and sandies. The perch model is an excellent producer of black bass in August and September.
It is one of the lures in its price range that comes from the factory with good, reliable, sharp hooks.
You will always find several of each model in my boat in case of losses. I would never consider leaving the dock without these in my arsenal.

Heddon Bayou Boggie
One of the best shallow water crank baits ever produced.Big Bass love this bait. I have used this bait over the last 30 years to win several bass tournaments.If the fish are shallow you need on the tie the boggie.Normally will out fish another one of my all time favorites the Rattle Trap. Too bad the color offering has now been reduce to just a few colors. Several of the best colors are no longer available. Back in the late 80's I personally ordered 15 doz. each of 2 diffrent colors that had been discontinued to get them special made at the factory because they were so good..Glad I did. Good fishing.Reelfoot Sam.

A versatile tool that has been a consistent producer around the breakwater barriers near marinas and boat docks, as well as,retrieving just above a stand of "bass grass".
The shad and chrome/black models have been most productive in the spring, while the perch and bass models are at their best in the bathwater warm waters of central Texas lakes in August and September.
This lure may be worked over a wide range of depths and retrieval speeds. One of the most effective for this angler has been to use a slow retrieval with a periodic twitch of the rod tip, producing a flashy, darting maneuver.
Try it. You'll soon find that it will earn a spot in the top tray of your tackle box
