|While at the Tackle
shows, I saw some new soft plastic baits that really intrigued me.
Gene Larew has come out with several floating soft plastic baits
that will be big sellers this year.
They have come out with a
floating finesse craw that will work ideally on a jig. The
floating craw stands straight up in the defensive posture and is
highly visible to the bass. The jig trailers that I have been using, lie
on the bottom and do not stand up and wiggle like these new Gene
Larew floating craws do.
Gene Larew floating ring worm is another soft plastic bait that I
see being used a lot this year. This bait has tentacles that are
at the end of the bait that will be floating up in the water.
These tentacles should produce a waving action that will be
enticing to bass.
Gene Larew has also come out
with a floating soft plastic lizard. This bait should be ideal
when the bass are up in the shallows. I can also see where this
bait will be good when used on a Carolina rig. Notice in the
photos of the floating lizard that the lizard is suspended and is not on the bottom
of the demonstration aquarium.
are some of the photos of the new Gene Larew floating soft plastic
baits. These photos were taken in the demonstration aquarium that was at the OKC
Gene Larew booth. As you can tell from the photos, these baits
float very well and will be easily visible to the fish.
of the OklahomaBassFishing.com staff members will be using these
floating soft plastic baits, so expect to see Product Test reports
on these exciting new lures.
