Nice looking gear - still hard to wrap my head around Oregon having a lot of bass big enough to chomp a plug bigger than the average stocker trout - but very nifty either way.

true that, might be a lost cause gives you a good sense of accomplishment, a 2lb largemouth could inhale any of those soft baits without a problem. you just gotta make him do it- my new signature explains further haha

The "smaller" soft baits in your pix yeah - but that hugeass hard rainbow trout plug looks too big for a 2lb fish to eat. Then again, bass are kinda kamikazi sometimes, and they'll try to eat anything they can fit their mouth around.

I suppose if you ever got a chance to fish Odell - you could troll that plug for huge macks also. Not unheard of for guys to catch a 20lb mack with a 2lb trout still hanging out of their mouth.

Colby (and others), do you have any experience with bluegill patterned swimbaits? I am going to try the lunker punker with a free shellcracker G2 deal at BTD but am looking for a good weedless bluegill bait for Denman and Hoover.

my fav. gear going into 2011

my fav. gear going into 2011

i really like these swimbaits. picked them up in the ocean section of my local fishing store for 1.50each (made to catch hallibut) but as colby says, think outside the box. i won a small tourney with these. catching 5 bass with a 22lb total weight. and at a few ponds i fish by my house i caugt my 3 biggest bass of 2010 on them. the ragetail shads are by far the best top water soft bait i have used, throwing up massive amounts of water, and the stretch back brush hawg type baits are amazing, can stretch one 4 feet without it breaking. more time in the water = more fish in the boat!

L.A slider thats a sweet bait when theyre eating it easy to replace and still a consistent producer sweet! congrats on the win!

These are the only swimbaits Ive got around to getting for my arsenal so far. I really like the action of the Sebiel it falls nice and swims great.
