It’s insane how quickly fishing products become popular: one win there, one win there … A few reports of catching larger-than-life bass and, well, all of sudden a new bait grabs the attention of anglers all over the world. The new “The Bug” soft plastic craw-creature bait by Pro Point Fishing Lures has gobbled up a ton of the attention during the 2016 summer.
Robert May of PPFL and Kistler Rods is a strong believer in “The Bug,” having caught a number of big bass on Lake Fork, which is especially impressive since Lake Fork is known for being a tough fishery during the hotter summer months – and this couldn’t be more true in 2016 when Lake Fork witnessed more-than-usual pressure (largely due to a second season of heavy rains).
Robert sent the original photograph to Jeremy Williams of TBC and Jeremy went to work immediately, editing and designing the image – morphing it into a quality advertisement that captures that insane moment when a 23.75″ largemouth bass is caught on Lake Fork. All of the TBC members are familiar with that feeling of releasing a football-sized 23.75″ bass that weighs between 7.5 lbs and 9 lbs. It’s exciting, yes, to catch a beast, but it will knock the wind out of an angler when they need that extra .25″ inches. Nevertheless, despite catching a hawg that had to be released, Robert, with the help of PPFL’s “The Bug” finished in 4th place at the recent JC Outdoors tournament.
