Just wondering how many of you use the Lucky Craft Pointers. I had a discussion on the other site about how they resembled a similar bait. But just wondering who fishes them and do they catch fish. For 12 to 14 bucks they better catch fish.

There is a store here in KPT that sells them for like 11.99 and then i think Vol Fisher said that Delo's or somebody sells them for that price.

Also has anyone ever used the X Caliber Twitch Bait. I am also looking at them i was watching the Bass Pro's this morning and they were talking about the Twitch Bait. Timmy Horton was fishing it looks like a good bait around the same price has anyone had any luck with them. Not going to buy a bunch just a one or two to test them out this spring.

I;ve got a Rapala "twitch" bait. I've not used it yet, but it does look good. It does not have a lip on it and it sinks slowly. I need to try it this spring.

Im pretty sure i picked one up the other day and looked at the back of it. I have never really noticed anything in price diference. And i will tell you this Watsons is selling the Shimano Cumara's for $199 and M&M's is selling them for $159 with 10% off. That is a awesome deal.

Ok, Gonna show my ignorance here. I have looked at LuckyCraft Jerk Baits several times with them 15 to 20 dollar price tags but never bought one. Last Spring about mid March a buddyand I ran up into the Cumberland River about 8 miles and fish a bend in the river and the points of several pockets on the river channel. My Buddy was up front throwing a LuckyCraft Pointer in Silver Shad and not getting bit. I was on the back of the boat throwing a Rattling Rogue and catching a bass about every few casts. He changed colors hoping it would help and I still caught fish and he didn't. He changed colors 4 times and still could not catch a fish. I was still catching fish. I changed from teh Rainbow Trout color I was throwing to a Chrome black back and continued catching Bass and I finally had to loan him a Rogue so he could catch fish. We both then began catching fish. Now some will say it was a coincidence but I did that same thing with three different anglers last spring. Luckycraft Pointers $15.95-Rattling Rogue $5.95. Was we just fishing where cheap bass live? Were we slumming in the low class part of the lake and the bass didn't think they were good enough to hit those $15.00 baits??? I don't think so
I am not sold on the fact that just because they cost so much more that they should catch more fish than baits that have already proven they will catch fish for 15 years. Sammy's $17.95- Zara Super Spook Jr.s 6.95. Same story different bait I fished with several guys pulling Sammy's and caught 3 fish to their one on Spooks. New and expensive verses Old and Proven. Give me old and proven every time.....

Softy its all about choice and confidence in the bait. I did just the opposite at Lanier last year with both jerk baits and spinnerbaits. My partners swore they could not catch a fish on the baits I was using, but I did. Now I have rogues also and Zara spooks all sizes( got a couple sammys too)...sometimes the fish want something different and sometimes it is confidence and the way you work the lure. Take the eveloution of worms. Which you know way more than I do but....origanally they were straight and almost hard as a pencil but they still caught fish, look at them today a gazillion collors and textures and designs and they still catch fish. I want to give the fish what they want because they do not always want what I am throwing. Yes I have a large tackle selection and sometimes still do not make the right choice.
