Nice article. It’s been ages since I’ve used any kind of fishing bait and with that said, it’s amazing to see just how advanced the bait is these days. If I were to go out to the Ohio River with friends this spring or summer, these are definitely worth the investment when it comes to catching fish from the river, though I wouldn’t recommend eating them (who knows what’s in that water these days!).
I haven’t tried fishing before, by lately the kids have been bugging me to bring them fishing so I started reading up about it.
I always thought you will need night crawlers as baits. And the thought of it make my hair stand on end. This is actually my first time coming across a plastic bait. Sounds like it is really durable and effective as a lure.
Thank you for your recommendation! I will keep this as one of my option when I go fishing next time.
You are welcome Grace.
