Here are the baits I used from Stankx Bait Company this year.
These tubes were irresistible to the smallies in the rivers up in the North Woods of Wisconsin. Hands down the best tubes you can get. Not one of the tubes in the package had an uncut skirt. Kudos for that! I will definitely be ordering more of these bad boys!
The “Mud Bugz” – I to use this as a trailer on my skirted jigs. I caught some tank largemouth bass utilizing this trailer. The color pattern is one of their custom colors – Gobi Wan. Being a star wars fan, I just had to go with it. (Sad to not see product not on their website anymore.)

The NXT LVL Swimz – these were new to me this year, and they were a fish favorite. I would rig these up with either a weightless offset hook, or a weighted one to get deeper and farther. This became one of my go to search baits when I was out with my traditional gear. The bass loved these! I even caught a few pike on them, as well. The colors on these really pop, and grab your attention.

I didn’t get to use these, because, of all of the success I had with all of the other baits, and my fly gear. However, I did give a few to my friends, and they were thoroughly impressed with how slow this bait fell when rigged wacky. I’m looking forward to giving these a shot next year. I was never really good with the wacky rig technique, but that’s one of my goals next summer.

All in all, I must say, that Stankx Bait Company creates some high quality plastics. There is a definitive difference, and once you get your hands on one of their products, you will immediately feel it. While I do favor and prefer fishing with my fly rod, I do still use my baitcaster and spinning rod from time to time, but I don’t have as much tackle as I used to 7 or 8 years ago. I gave all of my other plastics and some lures away, because, I didn’t need them, and they were just taking up space. Once I run out of my current supply of plastics, I’ll definitely be ordering from Stankx Bait Company.
**Note – I have no ties or have received anything free for writing this review. I am just simply letting you know my opinion. I’m all for supporting the smaller companies who make a high quality product.

  1. Hey Star Wars fan. I was just out on MSN and they had a link to the trailer for VII. Only problem is that it didn't go anywhere. Maybe later. I'm not a Bass kind of guy, but those tubes are worth a look. Took a couple good sized Cutbows on tubes.

  2. Tube jigs certainly are becoming more popular for fish! Not just Bass, but, Trout fishermen are successful with them too. I have been an on again – off again jig fisherman for awhile. They do work……………………….

  3. Those tubes work great in working the fast waters of a river, because, they're sleek in design, and will help the weighted jig get to the bottom faster to bounce on the bottom and attract any ready and waiting bass. There are only a few places I use these, and they are highly effective.I saw the trailer, and I am excited!!! While you can tell it's aimed towards the kids, you can also see that it can easily appeal to anyone, even guys our age, Mark. 😛

  4. Haven't heard of guys using them for trout. That's interesting, I'll have to do a Google search on that. I'm intrigued by the thought. I like to try something new every year. I'm not a very good jig fisherman, but I can do it. There are certain places that I go where it's the only way to fish.
