I have been playing with
this design for over a year now and it has gone through about
18 different prototypes stages. l designed the
"Bull Herring" to cater to the many blue back herring and alewive lakes
we have here in Georgia. I feel like this bait fills a void
in our immediate area here in Georgia and many others.
I have personally tested it on Lake Allatoona, Lanier,
Parksville and Nickajack with great success.
There are several
forage profiles that are similar to this bait such as Clear Lake Hitch,
Spot Tails, Alewives, Blue Back and a possible small stocker trout and
also Yellow Perch and a plathorea of saltwater forage ranging
from Mullet, Mackeral, Sardines for Calicos to Cocahoes, Mullett for
Red Fish and Speckle Trout. The bait does very well at all
rates of retrieve from slow to a super fast burn for you spotted bass
guys. I hope you enjoy it. More colors and Rates of
Falls coming soon.
As for equipment. You can use any flipping type setup with this bait with a 200 series reel no problem. Ideally if you fish for spotted bass I would highly reccomend a high speed reel. I personally use a Curado 300 with a Dobyns 795 SBMT or 795ML Swimbait Rod.
