Texas Tackle Factory Hackberry Hustler
The Texas Tackle Factory (TTF) Hackberry Hustler is the most versatile soft plastic ever. When used in any condition or situation, the Hackberry will draw strikes. The action it imparts appeals to the fish in two ways; visually and through vibrations. The visual presentation of the TTF Hackberry Hustler can be described with one word- seductive. By twitching the bait around it resembles a fleeing bait fish, drawing aggressive strikes from the predators. Also, by hopping it on the bottom, it can also resemble a shrimp being kicked up. This fact that the Hackberry Hustler can resemble two different kinds of baits only adds to it's versatility. The unique design of the tail of the Hustler is by far one of the reasons why fish are attracted to this soft plastic. The action the tail section gives, produces a better vibration than traditional paddle tails. This will draw in fish, even from a distance, when the vibrations hit the fish's lateral line. The versatility of this bait is unmatched. The color schemes that TTF has produced with these baits allows fisherman to fish any water clarity and draw some great fish.

One Good Bait
This is a very durable bait. Holds up to alot of fish abuse.East Beast is my first choice of color but just depends on the weather conditions for the colors. TTF has alot of good tackle.

If I could only have a one bait....
I fished with these in Hackberry a few years back and I am so glad they are publicly available now. The three colors that do it all are Morning Glory, East Beast, and Who Dat. If forced to only one color it would be East Beast for all water colors. I prefer using short shank jigheads from 1/16 to 1/4 ounce depending on water depth and desired retrieve. You can work this bait like a sand eel with added action from the paddle tail on the bottom, or hop it off the bottom and let the tail really vibrate on the fall. Also, lighter jigheads allow you to twitch through the water column like a traditional paddle tail or rat tail lure.
Give them a try,
