One Order of Bento is All You Need to Catch Lunkers
The team at Lunkerhunt
have been hard at work designing everything from premium fishing lures to
complete systems to provide anglers of all levels with the right tackle and the
knowledge to employ effective fish catching techniques. Their work paid off in a
big way this ICAST with a “Best of Show” Award in the soft bait category for
their minnow Bento Baits.
Lunkerhunt's Bento Baits are extremely realistic
The Bento Baits are a
minnow styled minnow with a split tail design. What sets these baits apart are
their anatomical realism combined with a soft yet durable body that comes to
life with the slightest twitch of the rod tip. The lures also put out extra
flash with a holographic core.

These baits are
available in two sizes 3 inch and 4.5 inch in 5 color patterns. This looks like
an absolutely killer drop shot bait and is designed to work in both freshwater
and saltwater applications. A pack of these baits will retail for $7.99.
Each Bento minnow features a holographic core
Bento Baits are available in both 3" and 4.5" sizes and a range of realistic
The Magic Bean is a fun
looking bait that is tiny, with a body profile the length of a penny, and a
weight of 1/4oz. This bait has a line tie on top and a blade on the back to add
flash when vertical jigging, casting, and ice fishing. The Magic Bean is
available in 7 patterns.
Magic Bean is a great bait for vertical jigging, ice fishing anyone?

The last time we were in
Orlando for ICAST we headed to Lake Toho to fish for bass after the show ended.
Coincidently the team at Lunkerhunt also had bass on their mind and when we
crossed path at the launch ramp they gave us a few of their Swim ‘N’ Jerk
swimbaits and Spicy Bites scent capsules.

Lunkerhunt Bento Baits
We caught fish
on their baits and since that first experience have followed the development of
their offerings but have never completed an extended field test of any of their
products. The company has really expanded their catalog over the last few years
and you can be sure that we will be including their baits into our upcoming test
schedule. Zander simply can’t wait to do some finesse fishing, Bento style.
