Whether you are fishing in the ocean, rivers and lakes or a trout stream, fishing is fun. Knowing where the fish are and what they are hungry for is something quite different. Mystery Tackle Box to the rescue. I received a Mystery Tackle Box (picture below)
I received a Zero Gravity Jig fromCustom Lures Unlimited, A Bubble Popper fromRiver2Sea, XRM Spy Bait from Reaction Strike and a Scorpion Tail from Mizmo Bait Company and I also received a Christmas themed Necko.
What Came in the Box
Zero Gravity Jig
Custom Lures Unlimited Zero Gravity Jig is the only jig with serious hang time and superior shallow water fish catching ability. The Zero Gravity Jig does what its marketed to do and sink and extremely slow rate giving the bass more time to strike. Even in a 1/4oz head size this bait still sinks like a weightless plastic and making it an ideal shallow water bait. The mop style skirt on every Zero Gravity Jigs adds to the slow methodical action of the bait and sets it apart from any other jig you’ve seen before. Uniqueness along with strength is also a priority for Custom Lures Unlimited especially with the Zero Gravity jigs that is designed around a 4/0 VMC black nickel hook.
Featuring a feather-dressed treble hook, the Bubble Popper is a great way to target shadelines and docks. Unique gaps in its concave face create a bubble trail, increasing surface disturbance and making it harder for bass to get a good look at the bait.
XRM Spy Bait
XRM Spy Bait The Reaction Strike XRM Spy Bait is one of the most unique and successful baits on the market. It has the appearance of a topwater, but it actually sinks below the surface and searches out hungry fish. The dual propellers churn and cause a commotion that imitates a wounded baitfish. The body sinks slowly, making this an ideal presentation for suspended fish. Swim it right through them with a slow retrieve, mixing in pauses to allow the fish to catch up. Windy days and nitpicky fish are ideal conditions for this bait.
Mizmo bait Company Scorpion Tail
These paddle worms are truly a one of a kind bait. You can fish these in any finesse presentation, as the wide tail will kick on a swim or float on a drop-shot. Texas rig it to fish around cover, or Carolina rig it to cover tons of water. There is not much this bait has in the downside department. The ribbed edges will give you long strikes and better hookup percentages, and the body is tough enough to last quite a few donkeys biting down on it.
The Ugly Fishmas Thermal Necko is a face shield designed to keep you warm in the fall and winter, right around Fishmas Time! Tuck one under the tree for your favorite angler or wear it on your own! The inner portion is lined with fleece to keep your face, neck, and noggin warm for those long, tough days on the water when fish are finicky and you need to work for a bite.
Since it is Winter and the fish are down low in the rivers and lakes, I can’t wait to use these in the Spring. Since I love fly-fishing a bit more then bass fishing I think I’m going to get a month subscription of the fly-fishing Mystery Tackle Box so I can stock up on fly-fishing baits.
