Berkley’s PowerBait Infused Spinnerbaits – The Power Blade Series
The Berkley Power Blade spinnerbaits are designed with numerous custom elements including signature blades, sleek heads molded around sharp Fusion 19 hooks, and perhaps most importantly, hand tied PowerBait infused skirting material designed to attract fish.

Even More Versatile Than Its Name Suggests, Big Bite Bait's Swimming Mama
How do you improve upon an already popular soft plastic bait profile? How about if you take that popular bait and add to it, a dimension not easily achieved by the original? In the case of Big Bite Bait's popular flipping bait, the Yomama, you streamline the bait and add twintail grub like appendages to transform it into a bait intended to be fished in constant motion.

DUO Launches A New Wakebait and Dock Skipping T-Hog Bug
DUO International was not at ICAST this year but some other many manufacturers they launched a few new products that will be making their way to retailers in the coming weeks. These include a new wakebait, plastic creature, and even a new bladed treble designed to add some extra flash to DUO's small cranks and shad style lures.

Big Bite Baits Scentsation Lures... "It Really Stinks!"
Big Bite Baits recently hired the services of a 30 year PhD Chemist to develop a new, soft plastic formula infused with proprietary fish attractant. Over the last season the manufacturer distributed prototypes through their pro angling team for testing in the rigorous pro circuits and continued through the off season. Once everyone was confident they had the right recipe, work began on new, bait profiles.
What in the HellraiZer? Z-Man’s Unconventional Topwater Chatterbait
Ron Davis of Chatterbait® fame is at it once again with the introduction of a new take on the chatterbait design, this time bringing the vibration bait to the surface. The HellaiZer is designed to harness the sound and action of the ChatterBait bladed jig and adapt it for topwater applications.
Z-Man Takes Finesse a Step Further with Micro Baits
The crown jewel in the Z-Man plastic arsenal is the brand’s ElaZtech thermoplastic material which is ultra-tough, buoyant, and able to be molded in very detailed bait profiles. This season the company is taking finesse to the next phase with the introduction of five micro-sized lures, each of which is designed to be fished with an equally small micro finesse ShroomZ jighead.
Big Bite Bait's Stealthy Little Limit Maker
Big Bite Bait's Limit Maker is a small, three and three quarter inch (3 3/4") soft plastic bait with a tapered, stick body ending in a pointed little tail. It's one of those do-nothing, looks-like-nothing, little baits that's easily taken for granted.
Cranking up a Revitalized Classic : Bagley Bait's Balsa B
Bagley Baits has a long and storied history in the bait manufacturing world. Founder, Jim Bagley (1923-2004), was an innovator with high standards and strict quality control that translated to a series of lures that produced results. At least five Bassmaster Classic wins can be credited to Bagley's products.
Berkley's New Finesse Worm is Straight Money
Straight tail, finesse worms are a staple out here in California. Just about every serious soft bait manufacturer that wants any part of the West Coast offers one and those who don't have a difficult time gaining any traction out here...

Shimano Cranks Up the BOOST with Their New World Minnow and Diver Jerkbaits
Featuring a familiar profile what makes these baits unique is the “BOOST” technology infused into the bait that is designed to increase both casting distance and visual appeal in the water, enabling anglers to target bass with a unique presentation that actively shimmers even when suspended.

Built for 20+ Foot Depths : Spro's Little John Super DD Crankbait

Not a Way to Livestream Your Fishing, Doomsday's Roku is Something Else
Having baits you can rig in different configurations in response to changing conditions helps to keep your tackle box free from mind numbing clutter. Doomsday Tackle Company recognizes the dilemma of having too much tackle in your bag to think straight and designed the subject of today's review with versatility in mind.

An Enthusiast Tier Creature from Megabass of America : The Bottle Shrimp
A look at a product with a somewhat traditional profile but in true Megabass fashion, just a little different take. Here is our take on Megabass of America's Honjikomi Bottle Shrimp.

What Do You Get When You Cross a Shad With a Grub? The Deal
Soft bodied swimbaits come in all shapes and sizes these days. Instead of a paddle for a tail, Berkley gives the "The Deal" twin tails that resemble the ends of a twintail grub.

Swimbait or Crankbait? The Deps Tiny Bulldoze 100
The Bullshooter and Bulldoze has always played second fiddle to the Slide Swimmer, but are still popular options for anglers looking for gill profiles. This season Deps has miniaturized these lures and introduced Tiny versions designed to target bass of all sizes across a wider range of applications.   

Locking Targets on Versatility : The Missile Craw by Missile Baits
Missile Baits's Missile Craw is a really interesting take on the crawdad bait. This bait definitely leans on the side of not-realistic and prefers to blur the lines between bait types.
More Rage from Strike King, This Time in a Bug
For the soft plastic aficionado who can't get enough of flipping and pitching Texas rigged plastics into the muck, feeling that "tick," reeling down and swinging back hard enough to make a fish go cross eyed, creature and trailer baits rule. You might say baits like this are all the rage...
Cranking It Up with PH Custom Lures's Herren's 2.0 Squarebill
Crankbaits serve as comfort food for the bass angler's insatiable appetite for gear, and balsa wood cranks can be found in the organic aisle of his favorite grocery store. PH Custom Lures has a product that kind of blurs the line between wood and plastic cranks...
All You Have To Do Is Dream ... Shot
Always on the lookout for something new and exciting, finesse baits are something that usually catches our attention. I was surprised to discover the subject of today's review not so much because Strike King was making it, but more so because KVD's name is attached. When I think of KVD fishing, I always have in mind him throwing something more active than a finesse bait...
Creature Fever : O.S.P.'s DoLive Craw
JDM products are not limited to rods, reels, and hard baits. Dedicated enthusiast tackle aficionados are well aware many Japanese Tackle Manufacturers also produce soft plastic baits that may or may not be easily available outside of Japan. O.S.P. is a company whose product seems to be continually in flux regarding availability here in North America.
Is Strike King's Ocho, Senko's Rival?
At a recent writer's conference hosted by Strike King and Lew's on Clear Lake, CA, the company introduced us to a host of new products. One product is the company's take on a very popular staple amongst bass fisherman. Many "hate" throwing it, but there's no denying its effectiveness and long lasting popularity. Here's our look at Strike King's take on the ubiquitous soft plastic stick bait, the KVD Ocho.

An Under the Radar, Quality Trailer Bait : Reins Ax Craw
Soft plastic trailer baits are generally designed to exaggerate the appearance of a crawdad in defensive posture. As a result, the vast majority feature large, out of proportion claw sections and bodies that for some reason resemble a crawdad that's been stepped on rather than something viable. It's difficult to argue with success, however, as the profile is proven.

MONSTERBASS Launches a Mean Popper, the Mad Max
While Mosnterbass has partnered up with many manufacturers for their monthly boxes they are now designing and launching more baits that are branded under their own "Monsterbass Collection," and the newest of which is a popper dubbed the Mad Max.
Cashing In on Berkley's Powerbait Ned Rig Worm
As finesse techniques grow in number, the corresponding baits seem to get smaller and smaller. I admit, I have a tough time with some of the smaller baits because they often lead to a lot of small bites. Still, when fishing pressure is high, there's often no other alternative but to downsize your bait. Skeet Reese has a bait for just such an occasion.
Megabass Launches the Sleeper Craw and lxl SHAD TX
This season Megabass America will be adding some additional weapons to their arsenal of baits including new sizes and colors of existing lines, as well as the exciting new introduction of their next “Sleeper” bait. As a follow up to their goby styled bait the company is extending the formula to one of the most popular forages for bass, the ever popular crawfish.
Molix's Creature : A Super Sized Morsel of a Bait
My first recollection of a "creature" bait was when GYCB ran with the genre and introduced us to their Kreature bait. Since that time, we've referred to any soft plastic bait that has defies description and even some we can easily describe as simply as a creature bait - hence our Creature Fever theme.
Not Afraid of Contact - The Jackall Chubble Minnow Shaped Squarebill
The Chubble stands apart from the rest of the Jackall hardbait lineup with a squarebill lip paired with a longer body that is designed to imitate minnows and exhibit a more natural swimming action than traditional squarebill cranks. 
Taking a Walk with Megabass's New Megadog
Measuring at just over eight and a half inches and weighing just over four and a half ounces, the Megadog is a big bait by any standard, but especially so for Megabass.
Brian Schmidt Baits's One Love : The Ned Dred
With the popularity of bait products like jigs, punch skirts, and skirted bullet and nail weights, it was only a matter of time before we started to see something similar for the latest finesse craze, the Ned Rig. After sharing our discovery of Brian Schmidt Bait's Hybrid Football Jig, we learned of a new product Schmidt is tying that promises to take the finesse crowd to another level.
Z-Man & Evergreen International's Jack Hammer Stealth
The collaboration of Z-Man and Evergreen International that resulted in the creation of the renowned Jack Hammer Chatterbait literally shook the bladed jig market. That lure is to its classification of baits as the Vision OneTen is to its own. That unprecedented popularity and effectiveness often leads to two eventualities - a rash of similar product by other manufacturers, and a catalog of variants from the originator.
Extending Their Line of Premium Baits : The Erie 95 SD by Nishine Lure Works
Twitch, twitch, pause... twitch, twitch, pause... blam! That anticipated, yet somehow always surprising strike on a jerkbait is addicting. Just about every bait manufacturer making hard plastic baits offers them, and whenever an editor here at TackleTour sees a new one, you can be sure that at some point that bait will make it to TT HQ.
Another Bait Joins the Squad, Missile's Ned Bomb
If you're familiar with Missile Baits's Bomb Shot drop shot bait, their Ned Bomb will feel very familiar. The company is doing a good job coming up with a signature look with their baits and the Ned Bomb looks like a huskier version of the Bomb Shot.
When the Bait You Throw Must Do Something More Somehow, Let It Be Lowen-Craw
It's been decades since I knew where my original Rebel Wee-Craws vanished to and while that bait touches upon my nostalgic soul, PH Custom Lures's Lowen's Cyber Craw brushes up against my enthusiast side...
Picking Apart Rapala's BX Big Brat Squarebill
It has been a while since we have looked at one of Rapala's hardbaits. While the brand continues to offer some of the most popular crankbaits on the market for multiple species, including bass and trout fishing. Rather than rest on their laurels Rapala continues to try and find ways to blend their proven lures with new design and manufacturing techniques.
MagDraft Part II : We Know It Was You, Freestyle
The MagDraft Freestyle is a six inch (6") paddletail style bait based off the companies popular MagDraft swimbait. The difference here is while the original MagDraft is pre-rigged with a hook and internal harness, the Freestyle is, well, free of all of that.
Cold Water Cranking Weapon - River2Sea's Tactical Bassin' DD Crankbait
As the air and water temperature drops in Fall and Winter the reaction bite also cools. Fishing slower and breaking out the finesse gear is often par for the course, but River2Sea and Tactical Bassin' have created a crankbait that is designed to unlock the feeding response in elusive deep holding fish.
Catch Outdoors's Take On the Ubiquitous Bladed Jig
Leveraging the technology they used to develop thier Zero Gravity Jig and combining it with one of the hottest bait trends going, bladed jigs, they've come up with another bait product they hope "catches" on. Here's our look at their relatively new, Zero Gravity Hybrid Airquake bladed jig.
