Here is an example of one of my hand poured baits vs. a commercially produced bait . These are your standard "senko" type stick baits. They are both on #17 Vanish Flourocarbon line with a #1 snap swivel and a 3/16 oz shakey head jig. My bait is the bright green one and the commercial one is the darker watermelon red flake. Which one do you think a bass will most likely eat? The hand poured one floating or the mass produced one laying on the bottom?
Fish Candy Baits VS. Mass produced Baits
I tested these on a 1/8 oz football shakey head jig and weightless. The line was #17 Vanish flourocarbon with a #1 snap swivel .
