The Cane Thumper looks half worm

paddletail with the same profile and body shape as other Rojas Big Bite baits

These hook pockets give the Cane Thumper less
plastic in the core of the bait to ball up on your hook point and interfere with
hook sets. The bait is 5 inches in length and available in a ten colors
including Alewife, watermelon, pearl and tilapia.
A look at the paddletail
The bait can be rigged Texas with or without a
weighted hook and can be used a trailer on vibrating jigs or swim jigs. The Cane
Thumper is very detailed and looks like it will generate a good amount of flash
in the water as it swims and should be lethal swimming over both hard and soft
cover or even in open water.
The Flying Squirrel is a hybrid
Flying Squirrel: B.A.S.S. Pro Angler Jeff
Kriet designed the 5 inch long Flying Squirrel to be a hybrid between a finesse
and creature bait. The lure features two "bulb" tail sections that are made from
floating plastic. The legs holding these bulbs are very thin allowing the bulbs
to float upwards and away from the body of the bait so that even the slightest
of movements will get these bulbs moving.

Sporting features from varying types of baits the
Flying Squirrel can be used in both finesse and power techniques. The Flying
Squirrel is designed to be fished Shaky Head but can also be fished Texas,
Carolina or used as a jig trailer.

Sugar Cane Worm: Also new this season is
the Sugar Cane Worm, which is designed great for finesse presentations like drop
shotting and shaky head fishing. The 5" is great for finesse while 7" versions
are good for Texas or Carolina rigs, The Sugar cane worm features hook slots and

Sugar Cane worm can be fished shaky or drop shotted
