Texas-based Xcite Baits offers a wide range of fishing catching colors that earn their stripes catching Lone Star lunkers. Lloyd Walker is a down-to-earth owner who appreciates hard work. My personal favorites are the XB-360 Underspin, the Shadnasty swimbait, and the Slim X straight tail worm. However, Lloyd produces a full range of plastics along with square bill crankbaits, shaky heads and swing-head jigs. No bait gets added to the Xcite lineup until it is a proven winner. Xcite soft plastics contain no salt, therefore they float and are deadly when paired with a Carolina Rig.

Black Label Balsa
I have always been a fan of balsa crankbaits, but had gotten away from them in recent years due to a lack of durability. Then, I found Black Label, designed by Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace. The colors are fantastic. The components are first-class. The durability is second-to-none. My favorite is the topwater propbait, The Tease. If you are in the market for premium balsa baits that will catch bass, you have to give Black Label Balsa a look.

I had sworn off braided line....until I had the opportunity to give Fins Situational Braids a try. Wow, I was impressed! They truly have braids to fit every situation. They have braid that excel in windy conditions. They have braids built with 10% stretch. They have froggin' braid to conquer the slop. Fins has braids for saltwater and freshwater alike. I have Fins Fishing to thank for putting braid back into my fish catch arsenal. Fins up!
Stan Sloan's Zorro Bait Company
Zorro Baits, headquartered in Sparta, TN, can trace its roots back to the beginning of tournament bass fishing. The first Bassmaster Classic was won by Bobby Murray on an Aggravator Spinnerbait. I am a spinnerbait, buzzbait, and jig fisherman at heart. I have been quietly throwing the Booza Bug jig for a year or two. The Booza Bug is Zorro's signature bait! Words cannot express how excited I am to represent Zorro Baits. Getcha some Zorro Baits and catch more bass.
