Well folks, our March 2014 Tackle Grab box has arrived and we want to share what’s been sent to us. It looks like this box is gearing anglers up for spring. That means pre-spawn and bass on beds. For those of you who fish different species, this may mean spring northerns, musky or spring walleye.
Whatever your target species, looks like Tackle Grab is very aware of the season because our box is dialed in perfectly! Lets have a looksie!
The Yo-Zuri Rattl’n Vibe is a competent little lipless crankbait. Yo-Zuri is a high quality bait and some of their sashimi hardbaits can run nearly $20. This little hardbait is just right for some cold water cranking in the spring. A smaller profile with the 2-1/2″ size will work just right with spring bass, pike and walleye. The color received is F305-MAT which is a bright hot firetiger type deal in a 5/8-oz sinking version.
This would be excellent for lakes that can muddy up from time to time like many reservoirs in north america. This lure can be brought in on a steady retrieve, a lift and drop or you can vertically jig it as well.
The Backstabber Jerkbait was really interesting because of the hook placement. The hooks are placed on the back of the bait keeping them out of the way and in theory they make this lure more snagless. It’s a great idea that has its merits, especially when fishing in areas where hangups are probable.
For anglers, this is an intriguing bait that may allow you to fish a jerkbait in areas where you would avoid. It’s a suspending bait so its perfect for fishing cold water and allowing for long pauses. Tacke Grab got it right again! A great addition to March’s box!
Tackle Grab did a great job at setting up anglers this month! The Secret Lures meat hook will work perfectly with the Castaic swimbait that is also included in this month’s box. A great hook that can be fished with a swimbait, burner worm, frog or fluke.
The addition of a paddle tail swimbait is always welcome in any box, no matter the season. These Castaic swimbaits are a perfect spring bait. These can be paired with the Secret Lures swimbait hooks that also came in this months box and fished very successfully on bass beds. The natural color pattern on these swimbaits can mimic many types of baitfish as well.
Also a great addition for anglers who throw umbrella rigs as well. Although there are only three in a pack, you can mix in different sized swimbaits for a more natural schooling baitfish look.
This was a pleasant surprise from Tackle Grab! Included in this month’s box was an informative card. This card outlined this month’s box and gave detailed tips on how to use the lures as well as rod, reel and line selection. For novice anglers this is a fantastic idea as now you will also get informative tips on trying out new presentations and a how to lesson each month. Tackle Grab is onto something!
