Flipping Out Over Missile's New Stick Bait and Jig


Date: 7/26/17
Location: Orlando, FL
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Missile Baits & Jigs
Reviewer: Cal

After their initial explosion onto the bass fishing scene several years ago, Missile Baits has taken their time updating and extending their arsenal of bass catching weaponry. Rob Pearson was on hand at the Missile Baits booth to show us what the brand has in store for us in 2018.


Introducing Missile Bait's new stick bait, the 48.


The 48 : Missile Baits introduces their take on a stick worm. The 48 is made of a denser plastic than traditional Missile Baits to help with durability when wacky rigged. But thanks to its shape (thin in the middle, thicker on the ends) it has a nice shimmy in the water. Rob Pearson tells us that if you rig it through the smaller end, and put a small weight on the thick end, you can make the bait glide backwards and shimmy at the same time. The 48 measures 4.8" in length and will come in 10 different colors.


The 48 is of course, 4.8 inches long.


This bait is designed to be fished wacky, neko, ned, or however you choose to fish your stick worms.

Ike's Flip Out Jig : If you follow Missile Baits on social media, you'll already know their big push this year was for Ike's Flip Out jig. This is a full sized flipping jig built around a heavy duty, VMC 5/0 hook. It will come in 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 oz sizes and be available in 8 different colors. Expect to see this bait by mid-August.

New colors for the DBomb.

New Colors : Missile Baits continues to extend the reach of their popular DBomb bait with the introduction of two new colors - Straight Black, and Pink Belly. Straight Black is of course, just that, while the Pink Belly color is a triple laminate process combining green pumpkin purple flake, clear pink, and a blue pearl vein in the middle. The Craw Father also receives a brand new color called Wicked Craw.

Wicked Craw.

Thank you Rob Pearson for showing us what's new and exciting with Missile Baits and Missile Jigs.

Conclusion: We just missed John Crews this year in his booth, but thank you to Rob Pearson for showing us what's new and exciting with Missile Baits and Missile Jigs. We look forward to the opportunity to test the new baits and flipping out over Ike's new jig.
