Boing Lures – Incredible is an Understatement!

Topwater baits..  a class of lures that that people absolutely love due to the fact they can actually see the fish strike the lure.  I absolutely love this style of lure and use this technique as often as I can.  While I’m fishing you will frequently find me throwing a Omega Alpha Shad buzzbait, a buzzfrog, or even  Pop-R.  However, you would never find me throwing a walk the dog style bait until now.

Part of this website’s mission is to provide information about new and exciting lures.  If you are into top water fishing then this is one of the lures that you should know and always keep stocked in your tackle box.  This, made in America, walk the dog style lure has a lot of features!  This lure is extremely easy to cast long distances, the company provides great customer service (will explain this later), it walks extremely easily and creates a unique sound while walking, and it really does catch fish.

I was introduced to this bait while reading some posts on face book.  I kept reading posts about this lure and other anglers kept stating that this lure has a unique sound and was catching fish.  I watched a few videos about this lure and I decided since I had an upcoming tournament that I needed to purchase a few.  I ordered a few of these lures in the ice shad version.  Unfortunately , they were out of stock, however the owner of Boing gave me a call and he ended up overnighting 2 different color lures (literally all they had) so I would have them for the upcoming tournament.

So thanks to Jason from Boing Lures I received these lures on Saturday afternoon and 20 minutes later I was on the water with these lures.  I was fishing along a ledge and within a few casts I saw the effectiveness of these lures.  Over the next few hours I managed to catch about 25 fish mostly largemouth but I also caught smallmouth and hybrids.  I was amazed at the vicious strikes that I got on this bait!!

I asked Boing Lures Pro-Staffer Hunter Gregory about the lures and he stated “The Boing Lure is the easiest casting, easiest walking topwater lure that I have ever thrown. The resonant “Boing” sound that the bait creates drives fish crazy, and will trigger even the lock-jawed bass in your favorite lake!”

My Finals Thoughts

One of my weaknesses as a fisherman was the walk-the-dog style of baits.  It was always difficult to cast them a long ways and it was complicated to get the lure to walk.  However, as soon as I got this lure it really made fishing with this style of bait a lot easier.  Overall, I believe this is perhaps the best Walk-the-Dog bait I have ever used.  Fishing this lure has helped me catch more fish thus making me a better angler.

Review of the RAZR Rods

Razr Rods- Best Rod on the Market Hands Down!

Walking into Cabellas, Bass Pro, or shopping online at tacklewarehouse.com you will see 100′s of different rods by dozens of different companies. So how do you know which  companies’ rods to choose?

I’ve fished G Loomis, St Croix, Dobyns Rods, and Duckett Rods and I want you to know that I’ve found a companies’ rods that is far more superior than other companies’ rods.

My love for the RAZR rod brand began in January at the Kansas City Sports Show.  My friend bought me a spinning rod that I started using to fish for crappie.  Then during family vacation I hired Rick LaPoint’s guide service to fish Table Rock Lake.  The guide I was fishing with was using the RAZR rods so I got to use them for bass fishing.  Shortly after this  I decided to purchase a half dozen of the RAZR Rods and I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve been fishing with these rods since July 1st and I have been absolutely amazed!  I could fish with any rod on the market, however I believe in the RAZR rod.  My hook up ratio has significantly increased since switching over to solely using the RAZR rod brand.

Have you heard of Razr Rods prior to reading the article? If not now you have!! If you have you should purchase a rod and tell them the Extreme Bass Angler sent you there.

20120916-214513.jpg

That is why in my humble opinion these rods are the best on the market. Hands Down!  Best Part about these rods is that they are made in America!

You wont find these Companies at your local Tackleshop, but Should!

**Disclaimer – At the time of writing this I am not on the Pro-Staff of any of the companies that I am writing about. **

When you walk into your local tackle shop what spinner bait, jig, or soft plastics do you see? Strike King, Berkley, Yum, Zoom, Gary Yamamoto or even Booyah Baits. Sure these are what you find at your local bait shop, but there are so many other companies out there making high quality lures.

The next time you are in need of some tackle I challenge you to look beyond the typical tackle and look at these companies.

You can purchase some of the tackle below at tacklewarehouse.com . If the baits are not available there to purchase check out the companies’ website

================================================================

Omega Custom Tacklewww.omegacustomtackle.com

Omega Custom Tackle is a smaller company that makes outstanding Jigs and Buzzbaits. The Alpha Shad Buzzbait has a unique sound and has caught me my 7 out of 10 biggest bass of the year.

They make some outstanding jigs! The Football jigs are unbelievable and I probably own at least 50 of them in various weights (1/2 and 1 oz).

This company did produce probably one of the best instructional videos I have ever watched. I highly encourage anyone who wants to improve their jig technique to watch this video. (pic of video shown below)

Omega makes several different types of jigs: Finesse, Flippn’, Pitchn’, and made in several different types of jig heads. My favorite jig that they make its the Remitz jig.

================================================================

Power Team Lures

Power Team Lureswww.powerteamlures.com

Power Team Lures is a phenomenal soft plastic company that has the customer service to match their superior products. Their creature baits and worms are top notch. Combining a creature bait with an Omega jig is dangerous.

The Craw D’oeuvre and Conviction Craw are Extreme! I like to use them as Jig Trailors on my Omega Jigs or I like to put a heavy weight used for punching thick mats. The Ribbon worm is one of the best worms I have ever used. This worm has more action when compared to the other plastic worms I have used.

If I didn’t believe in these lures I wouldn’t have ordered the pro packs!

================================================================

Bionic Custom Baitshttp://www.bioniccustombaits.com/

If you are in the market for a spinnerbait this is where you want to go! If you can imagine a blade combination then this company can make it. The Customer Service is top notch and you really get the feeling that they care about the product they produce.

I ordered some Custom Spinnerbaits from them and I could not be happier with the results. I had ordered custom Double Colorado blades and these look and feel amazing.

================================================================

Pro Edge Baitshttp://www.proedgebaits.com

Pro Edge Baits is another soft plastic bait company and terminal tackle company. This is another small company that makes absolutely phenomenal soft plastics. If you really want to have a good flipping bait you will have to try 4.25″ Creeper. Each appendage slowly moves independently of each other. It is amazing!! You can use it Texas Rigged, as a grass matt Puncher, or even as jig trailer.

CUSTOM SOFT PLASTICS

I choose these two custom soft plastics makers below due to my personal experience with them. Both of them can make just about any thing you could want! The detail and work into each soft plastic is amazing! Each of them from Paul or Tattoo Baits is a work of art!

================================================================

Paul Krew’s Custom Baits — email him: Elitecustombaits@gmail.com

Paul Krew’s Custom Baits are much more like a work of art rather than a soft plastic lure. The colors he mixes appear life like and the detail he puts in them is absolutely amazing. The picture that I took really doesn’t do it justice. I added a second picture so you can see the amount of detail that Paul puts into his soft plastics.

Drop Shot Minnows purchased from Paul

Custom poured Beaver! Look at that detail!

================================================================

Tattoo Baitshttp://www.facebook.com/pages/Tattoo-Baits/331539803593942

TattooBaits.com

This is a custom soft plastic lure company and if you can imagine a color combination they will try to accommodate. These soft plastics are made with great detail and you sure wont be disappointed!! What I like most about the Buzzfrog from Tattoo baits is the amount of action it has compared to the other Buzzfrogs on the market that I have used. If you need any custom swirl or a core shot Tattoo can set you up!

The Picture below is my custom order of Buzzfrogs in the exact color that I wanted. The action on this is amazing! The plastic is soft enough to give it great action, but it is still durable for a few bass!

Alpha Shad Buzz Bait: So good you shouldn’t let your friend borrow it!

For those who don’t know me let me tell you one thing.  My favorite type of fishing is topwater lures and the reason why is seeing those vicious bites and seeing and hearing your lure getting slammed.  No matter what time a year it is I will always have a buzz bait tied on to one of my poles as it is one of my favorite techniques.  After watching the Omega Tackle Jig fishing video, which included a section about the Alpha Shad,  I decided to purchase several Alpha Shad Buzz Baits from Omega Custom Tackle. Omega’s attention to detail makes these worth every penny. So, what makes these so special? When I think of buzz bait fishing it’s usually done early dawn and in the evening.  But, I’ve discovered that as long as you cover new water this bait can actually go on all day long even in bluebird sky conditions.  First off, it doesn’t take long for them to surface.  Usually after one or two cranks they start chugging along the surface leaving behind a monster sized wake & bubble trail.

The Alpha Omega Buzz Bait comes in three colors: Black, Midnight, and Chartreuse Shad. I have been experimenting with the Black and the Chartreuse buzz baits aiming to pin down when to using each of them and such. Thus far the results have been pretty darn good to say the least. I have picked up a bunch of 4′s and 5′s out at the lake, where in the past I was mainly catching smaller ones. One outing forever changed my view of this awesome bait.

20120707-162533.jpg

I was fishing one evening at a local fishing marina out at Lake Perry with my best friend Keith. He was using a plastic worm while I was throwing the Alpha Shad (chartreuse)buzz bait. I missed a larger bass that struck my buzz bait but missed.  I thought that maybe the bass felt the hook of the buzz bait. So, I followed up the buzz bait with a Remitz football head jig hoping to get the fish to strike again. While I fished with the jig my buddy borrowed my Alpha Shad buzz bait rod. He threw the bait towards the rip rap and I watched him slowly reel in the buzz bait while he evaluated the lure. All of a sudden the lure just disappeared. It was sucked under the water and needless to say the rest is history as my best friend caught an almost 7lb largemouth (see pic below of my buddy Keith). Needless to say this is why you don’t let your friends borrow your Alpha Shad.

My best friend Keith with Alpha Shad Buzz Bait Bass

Pro’s: Made in USA, Long Lasting caught over 200 fish with the same buzz bait, easily surfaces, unique sound and did I mention it catches a lot of fish!

Con: Wish that they made one with a clacker on it.

There are two great locations that you can buy this great buzz bait.  You wont regret it!!!
