With zone 17 bass season opening in 13 days I thought it appropriate to discuss some new great we've bought this year.

Here are a few I'm excited to try this season,

Booyah Toad Runner, I'm excited to give this a try, I love frogs and nothing is more exciting than a good topwater bite.

Perfect Jig flipping, in the past I've relied too heavily on soft plastics, this year I'm stepping up my big game. These beauties are locally made, I love flipping and pitching so I can't wait to get these wet.

Last but not least, I love jerkbaits, and I don't think I ever go out without one tied on. I found this Spro McStick, looks wicked to me, so when the conditions are right this will be the first one I throw this season.

What New lures do you have lined up for this year?

The Toad Runner was released this year, that is how it comes out of the package. There is a boot leg on a swivel that is attached to it.

Let me know if the toad runner works out better than the original teckel frog ie plopping and durability, Booyah is known as one of the better frog companies for the price so I'm interested on their take of the sprinker frog.

I'm most excited to try out my huddlestons, Dipping my feet into the swimbait rabbit hole has become a dangerous and expensive place. Probably has the best reputation for big fish for price (turns out $30 usd is cheap for swimbaits) Never seen so many expensive lures on backorder

My highest expectations are for my jackhammer chatterbait, I can't really tell you why it's $20-$30 cad other than craftsmanship, but as its won more money than any other lure this year in Flw or Elite series. I expect it to take the shape of a majestic unicorn as I retrieve it through the water. Though experience tells me it gets broken off on opening day

I'm hooked on the perfect jigs as well. Caught my PB bass last year with one.
Just loaded up with a bunch of new gear including punch skirts and some nice swim jigs. Good quality made lures for sure.

These were the products I picked up from the sale. The owner was there and we matched up some nice goby options and well as a few nice crayfish combos. Also picked up one with some purple in the skirt, never tried that colour before so who knows.

Those Jerkbaits look awesome Iíll have to check them out.

I picked up a couple of the Scott Martin Live Target popping frogs. I love the live target frog so hopefully the addition of a popper should be awesome.

Grabbed some punisher flipping jigs also locally made. Some other random drop shot baits and of course some chigger craws.

I agreed too top water fishing have more fun, I did noticed this toad runner too, just worry the boot will be a problem for hook set.

I was thinking the same thing about that boot on the frog. I am going to try the Whopper Plopper this year. Similar idea with the boot off the back. Some guys on the BASS tour are having great success with this lure.

The Boo Yah Pad Crasher is my favorite frog. i was thinking about the new runner, but haven't found a need to switch it up and go away from what works.

Scro i bought that exact same whopper plopper color last October, but haven't been able to use it yet. I think Chris Lane came in second using nothing but that lure on the elite series.

The first fish I got on a whopper plopper last year was my new pb smallmouth, size 130, I now own 3, second fish I caught was a 10 inch largemouth

I am believer in them for sure, a single blade of grass will completely ruin the action of the lure though.

Ploppers are awesome 👍
