Putting together boxes in cold weather months is harder that one realizes when you consider the fact that ½ the country is frozen over and not fishing. So, when I put this month’s boxes together, I tried to hook you up with seasonal content to help you prep for next season & baits that you could look forward to throwing.
This month we were able to secure 2 new product exclusives that you won’t find anywhere else and we delivered you around $50 in total MSRP, not including all of the little extras that we included in your Platinum Series Box.
NEW for 2023: The new Trapper Lipless crank bait from Vicious Fishing. These guys have quietly been putting out solid baits under the radar of most people, but not anymore. Tackle Warehouse just picked up their entire lineup for 2023. However MONSTERBASS subscribers are the first to get their hands on it.
NEW FOR 2023: The Defender is the newest release from Bruiser Baits. This squarebill comes armed with super sticky Mustad hooks and is available in 8 ultra-realistic colors and only available in MONSTERBASS boxes until it’s February 2023 product launch. 13 Fishing’s Poppy McPop Face delivers everything you could ever ask for in terms of performance and value, making it one of the best poppers on the planet. It features a precision internal tail weighting system and a large cupped mouth that moves water with every tug.
The B8Lab Fyre Shad is back and has been upgraded from it’s original predacesor. This elongated crankbait now features Mustad trebles, strong vibrations and irresistible action that generates trophy caliber results year round. Measuring just over 3.5 inches, the Fyre Shad moves loads of water – even on a slow retrieve. Luck E Strike Trickster Spinnerbait. When Bassmaster Classic Champion Rick Clunn partnered with Luck-E-Strike to develop the Trickster Spinnerbait, he wanted to develop one with a long drop blade, which is a hybrid combining a willow leaf and Indiana blade. The result is extra vibration and water displacement.
Big Bite Baits Jointed Jerkbait. Are you looking for a bait that will bring you the big bites? Try the Big Bite Baits Jointed Jerk Minnow! Fortified with Bite Juice fish attractant and impregnated with salt, this jerk minnow will be irresistible to all species of fish. The minnow-shaped body and segmented tail imitates the swimming action of baitfish that smallmouth, largemouth, and walleye love to eat.
Who doesn’t love Z-Man? I made a last-minute pivot to get them in the box this month. They’re one of the most reliable brands in fishing and depending on the region of the country where you live and fish you’re going to receive a different bag of baits.
Spearpoint Performance Hooks. Built for using heavy tackle and catching big fish, the Spearpoint Performance Hooks EWG Heavy Gauge Hooks are a beefed-up version of Spearpoint’s highly successful EWG design for anglers that need a little extra power for their application.
