Blakemore Rock N' Runner Review

blakemore-logo"The Blakemore Rock’N Runner takes chatterbait fishing to a whole new level."

Overall Rating: 9.3

Manufacturer: Blackmore Lures


About Blackmore

Blakemore took the original Road Runner and spiced it up with a harder rockin' action that drives fish wild. This Rock'n Runner spinnerbait delivers a slow presentation, flash and vibration for the ultimate attraction to appeal to even the most finicky of fish. Cast it near structures, retrieve it slowly and hang on. The design begins with a wobble blade/spinner blade combination. Holographic eyes give it a realistic appearance. A Sampo swivel delivers smooth performance. It's all set on a Bleeding Bait Hook™ that triggers feeding fish for more than just a look. Tie line on at the snap.

glenlauProducts: Bigmouth, Bigmouth Forever

I had seen Bigmouth, the first of Glenn Lau's movies about the Largemouth Bass many years ago when it first made its way through the Bassin' world. I remember watching in awe and wondering where in the world was a place with so many bass, and where was the water so clear it seemed as though you could see 40 feet.

sproWith summer here, its time to take out those topwaters for some exciting bass fishing action, but don't forget to put Spro's new Chug Minnow 35 in your box. This 3.5" plug is like no other popping plug on the market. The head does not have the normal concave face of ordinary popping lures. Instead, the Chug Minnow feature a flared gill design that pushes away water at the top and the sides, but still allowing water to flow through the bottom.

Coast Lures Product Review - 1

coast-luresI recently field tested a Pro Stealth Series Spinnerbait from Coast Lures, and I have to say that they build a high quality bait.

The spinnerbait has high quality components, such as titanium wire, a black Mustad teflon hook, and a good quality silicone skirt. I also really like the head design of the bait, it has a shad look alike head, and it comes through cover really well.
