NEW GEAR: Bass Pro Shop
I recently purchased some new gear from Bass Pro Shop. The Spring Classic always offers some great deals.
I bought some Strike King Buzz Baits, Power Pro, Scum Frog, Soft Plastics, an a KVD Spinner Bait.
The Strike King KVD Spinner Bait, 3/8 ounce. This has Bass written all over it.
That's the new creature bait from Bass Pro. They are called the River Bug. I love creature baits, they produce a ton of Bass. I prefer four inch creature baits, but I could only get the three and a half inch at this time. I'll give these guys a go on a split shot rig.
Possibly one of the best deals at the spring classic was the Bass Pro Tourney Special IM7 fishing rods. These rods are regularly $49.99, which is a low end rod. This rod was on sale for $29.99, so I picked up a couple. I did do some research to see if this rod was even worth while. Most fishing rods under $80.00 are alright, but not that great. The comments on the Bass Pro page for this item are crazy, there is over one hundred comments and most highly recommend this rod. The rating on the rod was 4.7 out of 5. That's why I bought them, and really, for thirty bucks I guess you can't go wrong.
I put my Rick Clunn RCX Bait Caster on one of the rods. That set up would have cost almost $200.00 but I bought the reel at the unbelievable price of $54.00, less than half price and the rod for $29.99. It does pay to sign up for Bass Pro emails and to visit the site a couple times a week. The reel was a one day sale before Christmas, as soon as I received the email, I ordered it and it went under the tree. You have to be quick to get these deals, because they do sell out quick some times.
These light weight graphite rods have good sensitivity and the power hump handle adds extra comfort. For the complete details visit the website. The link for this rod is below.//www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shops-Tourney-Special-IM7-Graphite-Rods-Trigger/product/44528/-948289#BVQAWidgetID
