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

I fish kansas lakes in late spring early summer for walleye, white bass, and wipers. This is the best lure I've found that will catch all three species. A local marine introduced these to me but quit carrying them so I'm glad basspro is easy to order them from.

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.

Very underutilized classic from the past
This bait is a true producer, especially in quieter waters like farm ponds, or anywhere the fish can be skittish and rattle baits send them running instead of attracting them. With so many fishermen using rattle baits, the non-tattlers like the BB can help you catch more real lunkers. Reel straight, or erratically. CAsts well in the wind, too - a time when this bait can really excel.
