Best Lures to Catch More and Bigger Bass
Spoiler alert! Ask 100 bass fisherman the above question and hear 1 Million different answers!
But let me share one of my newest favorite lures (and how it got to be that way).
What I consider to be one of the best lures to catch more and bigger bass.
The Redeye Shad
Orange Belly Craw Redeye Shad
Why the Redeye Shad?
- I caught a 3 pound bass on my first cast with this lure!
- It was developed with the help of BassPro fisherman Kevin Van Dam (#1 angler in the world).
- You can fish it in a variety of ways (simple retrieve, stop and go, twitch, etc.)
- There are numerous colors to choose from.
How I found The Redeye Shad
I could see bass cruising near the shore, but couldn’t get their attention. I went to my local BassPro shop, found a young (I’d say early 20’s) sales associate in the bass fishing section, and asked for his advice. He told me the Redeye Shad was one of his favorites.
I bought a couple of colors, and as I said, caught a nice bass on the first cast.
On the second cast, I snagged on a rock. I maneuvered over to the snag, and the water was so clear I could see the lure. I got it unstuck, and immediately another 2.5 pound bass raced up from below and ate the lure!
Naturally, this immediately became one of my favorites, and I had a lot of luck catching very nice size bass (and one fat rainbow trout!) on this lure before my accident benched me for the rest of the season.
You can bet I’m itching to get back on the water and throwing my Redeye Shad!
While the color shown above is certainly my favorite, I also use and like the other colors and ensure I always have 2 of each color (at least!) so I can fish in various conditions. More on how to choose color in a future post.
