The people who produce the famous Terminator spinnerbaits are expanding even more by manufacturing an entire new line of artificial baits that could change the way anglers look at plastic worms, soft jerkbaits, lizards and tubes.
Outdoor Innovations of Tulsa, Okla., will ship its revolutionary SnapBack Super Plastics to stores everywhere in July. Wait until you have a chance to touch one of these baits. The SnapBack Super Plastics are made of a new kind of soft plastic that is tear-resistant, highly elastic (it stretches like salt water taffy) and lasts cast after cast, fish after fish.
That's when I perked up. When I first heard you could use a new SnapBack worm or lizard all day and not need to change baits because of a tear, a rip or a fish that demolished the soft lure, I paid attention.
Durability is the hallmark of SnapBack Super Plastic baits. They have forever ended the old problem of easily torn plastic worms and such. And while the new product is much tougher than any on the market before, they are also softer than others, and they float an important asset for anglers who like to rig their plastic baits Carolina-style, which means the line from the reel is held on the bottom with a small sinker, but the actual plastic lizard or worm must ride high above an underwater weed patch so bass can see it.
Another innovation with the SnapBack baits is a built-in rattle pocket. You can add one of those tiny commercially available rattles and give your lure yet another appeal. Now add a powerful scent that the company says contains bite-inducing hormones and aromas.
The selection includes a 4-inch pitching tube, several lengths of worms, a 6-inch lizard and a soft jerkbait that is sure to drive tidal water largemouths or mountain smallmouths into a frenzy. SnapBacks will be priced to compete with other plastic baits.
