Solo slab beatdown. 50+ crappies almost all over 10” and up - all caught on the Bonita minnow. Those things slay!

Guys. Awesome job. I've been killin panfish with the Hellcat bait. I love it. Just had to order more. Trying a couple different ones this time also. As a vet I wanted to say thank you to all who served and keep up the great work. I'll keep telling people about your baits!

Just a slight snap with your rod and the Barracuda will do all the dancing you need to bring the walleyes out on the dance floor.

For panfish it has been jigs and Freedom Baitz plastics and that’s it! Haven’t had to use live bait at all!

Your baits are the best on the market. I’ve caught almost every freshwater fish in Alaska with them.
