Santone Lures are made in Mount Pleasant Texas, and we all love anything made locally. They make classic swim, football, and finesse jigs in tried and true patterns. But they also have given their swim jigs a new twist by offering collegiate, NFL, and military color patterns. Does a TCU, Dallas Cowboys, or U.S. Navy patterned jig really catch more fish then a traditional color? Maybe not, but how is any tackle box complete without these unique patterns. You can find them online at www.santonelures.com
The Live Target Series of lures has been around since 2005. They started out with classically designed crankbaits, topwaters, and jerkbaits with specific color patterns that mimic a baitfish. Recently they have created the BaitBall Series. These lures incorporate multiple baitfish into a single lure. Its easy to see that these lures are eye catching and with multiple lure types and designs they surely make the perfect bait for your local waters. They can be found at many retailers or online at www.LivetargetLures.com
The topwater frog has became increasingly popular among anglers over the past few years. With increased popularity of these lures many anglers have also turned to topwater mice, lizards, and snakes. But only one company is producing the topwater bird. Flip in the Bird Topwater lures come in a number of patterns to imitate the bird species that are commonly seen near water. These lures rely on the fact that a bass is one of the most aggressive creatures alive and that they will eat literally anything that fits into their mouths. To purchase go to Flip in the Bird website www.flipinthebird.com/buy/
