colbypearson said: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
GungasUncle said:The "smaller" soft baits in your pix yeah - but that hugeass hard rainbow trout plug looks too big for a 2lb fish to eat.

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.

Kevinb5688 said: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!
