Nice Jim...thanks for the contest. I started throwing swimbaits last year. Bought a box full of Tru-Tungsten swimmers at a huge discounted price ( I guess because they get horrible reviews). I only had one that didn't swim well, and they replaced it. I caught a handful of fish on them last year.

Can't wait to get on the water again!
Peace,

no biggie he wasnt very big anyways, first one ive manage to foul hook on a bbz shad though most short strikes dont get you anything with that bait. Also had my first snakehead of the year also a dink, i would post up some pics of both but when i try to email them to my self from my phone it say they the file doesnt exist, so i guess it didnt happen

Go for it - what is a red bass? I think the contest is for bass of all types so if you mean redfish (aka Red Drum) that would not be a bass
Trying to Fish as often as Jim works :LOL2:

Any fish goes as long as the lure is a "Swimbait".

So it don't matter if it's a pike or a bass as long as I use a swim bait?

Correct! As long as I can verify the lure is categorized as a "Swimbait" you should be good for an entry. And you have the required posts! :wink:

Exactly what I wanted to hear.......I hope this is the push for allot of guys who have always been meaning to throw them.

Thanks! :beer:
I have a few in my tackle box I hardly ever use. This will be an excuse for me to throw them too. I have a little one that looks like a baby bluegill that even I would eat!

Picked up the Prize today and purchased 2 more for myself. I am hoping my wife never reads this thread. :LOL2:

The winner of this contest will receive a Muskrat colored Muit's Mouse. This is a nice combo of Brown and Black. This is an awesome awesome color.

Picture is in the first post!
