But I had to give them a a try to see what the fad was about. Caught 3 on a 12 hour trip:




Caught more fish on smaller lures but the only pike of the trip did come on a swimbait. Both of those trout died. The pike still swims, hopefully. Thanks for the trip and the new addiction, Cher. I did end buying a few more lures after the trip... None of the Japanese crap, Tony. All American here! Beside, I can't afford that Japanese stuff :D

Is that the bbz-1?
Junior. I'd have to get a new rod to throw the 8" model, unless I were to use one of my surf rods, but I don't like the thought of throwing lures for hours on an 11' surf rod. I'm all for hard work and punishment but I think it would be a major fashion faux pas. :D

Definitely.......and the snobby swimbaiters would be pointing and laughing at you behind your back. Nice work AO.

Catching fish is a great way to avoid the dreaded "pointlaugh1"

Solid outing, keep rolling with it.

Hmm, Bobo, mac and pike. Wonder where?
Really easy to figure out if you know anything about where those three species of fish can be found. I was more interested in hiding the specific spot, which my buddy took me to. I probably would never have fished that specific spot otherwise. I was thinking in my head: "buddy, I don't think there be any fish here" when the pike bit. :biggrin1:

It was a good time. You left your bag of baits in my truck...
Really? I thought I had all my stuff... I've been busy and have not fished since then or looked at my stuff. The only fishing related activity I have done since then was to buy lures... $305 dollars so far. ::)

Mighty fun! In case anoyne missed it, I was being facetious in the title and when I used the word "fad."

I was also being "facetious"!
You are still being "facetious," you unrepentant sinner! :mad2: And snake murderer! :D BTW, those snake threads were entertaining.

I have spent the last month fishing for Wipers and bass with swimbaits. I bought some Hudds, Trash Fish, Castiac and Matt lures baits. I am finally starting to catch some fish with them on my new casting outfits. Including a 14 lb wiper. I am hooked big time:biggrin1:
