Plastic Lures and Baits for Bass Fishing

You'll love these new plastic lures and baits from Mister Twister, SinSation and SwimSation. They are versatile, available in a variety of colors and great for catching bass.

Considering I was too busy this past fall for fishing, I decided to hand out some new bags of Mister Twister plastics to a guy I know that would catch bass with them. Given his reaction, he seemed a tad skeptical to try them. After a bit of fishing though, he changed his mind and sent me a text stating how much he loved these plastics.

He started off using some Mister Twister 4-inch BUZZ Bugs. His first thought about this new bait was that it looked like a cross between a craw trailer and a soft plastic top water frog. He gathered up his rod and reels and then headed to a local lake, where the bass are notorious for ignoring soft plastics. The Mister Twister plastics are versatile and can be rigged several ways. Once the front wears out, you should tear or cut it off and use the tail for trailers. He started out Texas rigging one in the green pumpkin/blue color with a 1/4 ounce tungsten weight. He caught three bass in the first three casts, and another eight within an hour. After that, he went out and purchased several bags for himself. He was very successful with them for the remainder of the season. Mister Twister plastics are outstanding jig trailers. They work well Texas rigged, weightless and pulled across the surface as a buzz frog. He also caught several nice bass flipping it into the pad.

Also new for the 2016–2017 season is another versatile bait, the SwimSation plastic lure. Bass Elite Series Pro, Clent Davis helped design this lure, along with the paddle tail design. This swim bait has holes that create air bubbles and tentacles for more action. In addition, it’s another lure perfect for Texas or Carolina rigging! After testing it out, we found that nothing bigger than a #3 hook will hold up. The metallic sparkles give it a flashy look in darker water.


Next up is the SinSation plastic. It is 5 inches long with tentacles for added action and ribs for more noise and vibration. Again, this lure is another handy plastic that you can Carolina rig, Texas rig or pitch. The action on this bait is crazy. When the water is warm and the bass are biting, it will aggravate enough that fish have to take it. A weightless bait works well with a tungsten weight, jig head or football jig.

Overall, I have found these baits to hold up well. When the front gets worn out, make sure to tear it off and use the back for a trailer. All three of these baits are extremely versatile as there are several ways to fish each one and many colors to choose from for your particular presentation. I look forward to stocking back up on these this coming spring for more bass fishing.
