TOP 10 FRESH WATER BAITS

Ready to hit the lake, or your favorite pond or stream, then make sure you have the right bait for the fish you hope to land. Here are the top 10 freshwater baits to look into as you prepare for your fishing trip.

1. YUM YUMBRELLA FLASH MOB JR. WILLOW BLADE BAITFISH RIG

The YUM YUMbrella Flash Mob Jr. Willow Blade Baitfish Rig is used to attract bass. While compatible with most rods and reels, this bait is made with super-tough stainless steel and heat-treated wire. Four willow blades midway down each outer arm produce tremendous flash and vibration and create the image of a bigger school baitfish.

2. ZOOM BABY BRUSH HOG 5-INCH CREATURE BAIT : Watermelon Red

The Baby Brush Hog 5” Creature Baits are great for bass and other species of freshwater fish. These bulky baits with tails, wings and arms to provide lots of motion and water movement, will help bring success when you head out for a trip focused on bass. Try them as jig trailers – whole or cut down, or on a football head to drag through deep water like a spider jig.

3. H2O XPRESS JOINTED SUNFISH 3.5-INCH SWIMBAIT : Bluegill 01

The Jointed Sunfish 3.5” Swimbait can help you land your next freshwater bass. This bait uses a realistic look – which includes a 3-D glass eye – and feel to grab the fish’s attention. Use the Bluegill 01 version, with its premium treble hooks, to make sure the big one never gets away.
