Video Transcript:

Jeff Burlingame:
What's going on, you guys? Welcome back to the MONSTERBASS channel. I'm Jeff with Burly Fishing, AND I want to talk to you about one of our featured baits in this month's Takeover box. We're talking about the MONSTERBASS January box, the Strike King/[BioBait 00:00:12] Takeover, and I want to talk to you about these BioBait plastics a little bit today, what they are, why you should care about them, and how you should maybe fish them, plus, I'm going to show you some action in the fish tank here in just a second.

Jeff Burlingame:
So if you're looking for more videos like this, fishing techniques, tips and tricks from great anglers all over the country, then you should probably stay tuned. We do a ton of that here on the MONSTERBASS channel. So consider subscribing. Smash "like" on this video, ring that notification bell so you can see when we drop more content. And if you want to see more unboxings, including the BioBait/Strike King Takeover box, head over to Burly Fishing. I just did one, so you can pop on over there and see it. We did the MB Regional and the MONSTERBASS Ice box, our second one ever. So if you want to see maybe a different perspective on that, as well as us dunking them in the tank or even going and fishing them, I'd appreciate it if you go check out my channel as well. So let's get to these baits, shall we?

Jeff Burlingame:
So I've actually got four bags of plastics from BioBait for you guys today, three of which came in the Strike King/BioBait Takeover box for January. If you get the National or the Regional box from us here at MONSTERBASS, you're going to be getting those. And then I've got one that I'm pretty excited about, I actually really like the look of this one, from the Ice box that I'm going to show you after these.

Jeff Burlingame:
So let's get right into them. We've got three. So we've actually got a stick worm. We've got a leech, most likely for drop shotting, but a lot of different things you can do with it. And we got a good old fluke. From the Ice box, check this out, we've got a smaller size leech in bright pink. It's a 2.5 incher, which I think is going to be juice this ice season.

Jeff Burlingame:
So let's take a look at these things individually here. First up, I want to show you this worm. Look at that. So we've got a nice classic stick worm, but it's one with a ton of action. This one here is in green pumpkin, so you got the green plastic with a black flake in there. And I've just got it wacky rigged.,I'll show you what it looks like, weightless wacky, which is probably what most of you guys are throwing or should be throwing when you're trying to catch some big old dang hogs out there. This will be something that could easily catch you your PB. Look at that. That's just awesome. They also are pretty buoyant, so they sink really, really slow. So if you're just trying to entice those reaction strikes, this could be the one for you.

Jeff Burlingame:
We've got a fluke. Got it rigged up on an EWG here. That fluke has a ton of action in the tail. You guys aren't throwing these in fall and spring, you're kind of missing out. Throwing one of these weightless could be the difference maker for you. If you're just trying to have a good day on the water and catch some big old bass, this can definitely help out. This one comes in a watermelon flake as well, so it's that green pumpkin base color with some red flake in it.

Jeff Burlingame:
We got the leech here. Look at this thing. Tapered body, mostly flat, comes down to this little tail at the end, and that tail is going to be moving a ton, ton in the water, so that's going to look really good. And again, we got it rigged up on drop shot here, so little teardrop or a tube-style weight at the bottom. Coming up to here, we have the Daiichi StandOut hooks, one of my favorite drop shot hooks to be throwing. That's going to look juicy. Ooh.

Jeff Burlingame:
And here's that ice rig. Look at this thing. Ice rig on a little jig here. It's a 1/16 ounce jig, and this color. Love the color. I love throwing brighter plastics or jigs with the glow resin, something that's going to pop or stand out a bit more in those low light conditions through the ice. Tends to be a difference maker for trying to just get some bites. So again, much shorter on this one, 2.5 inches, but it's that same exact body style as the leech.

Jeff Burlingame:
So, some good variety here. You guys are getting a worm, you got a fluke, you got a drop shot plastic with the leech, and then you've got an ice fishing plastic. So you got some good variation with what they're offering, but why the heck would you get a BioBait? So here's the back. Read it, and video's done. You're welcome. Bye.

Jeff Burlingame:
So on the back here, you can see all about it. Essentially, what we're looking at is it's a high scented bait. Obviously we can argue till the cows come home if scent works or doesn't work, I know a lot of you guys like it because I hear from you in my comment thread over on the Burly Fishing channel. I hear from you on the MONSTERBASS channel. We read all those comments, we take advice, all of that. But these are really well scented, and they don't stank too much, where you open it up and you're just gasping for air, trying to survive yourself, let alone the fish trying to bite the thing. So it's not too bad. They're actually infused with fish oil, so it's not a crazy scent.

Jeff Burlingame:
They're made in the good old US of A. Another thing you might notice here right on the front is they don't dry out. I don't know if that's the fish oil that they're using, like it's just better for the plastic to last a little bit longer, but they're not going to dry out. So that scent's not just going to wear off, like some of the scents that you'll get in a little tube, you mix it up yourself in the bag. These are pre-mixed, ready to go, they're not going to dry out. And the whole reason they're named BioBait is because these are bio-degradable baits. If a fish consumes this plastic, it's actually safer for the fish because it's just going to break down in their belly. They can pass it. It's gone.

Jeff Burlingame:
I don't know about you guys, but you ever find old fishing plastics when you're walking the bank or you're out fishing, and you just get that senko that's 10 feet long now, because it just absorbed all the water over time and it's disgusting? Those don't really break down. They don't go away. But this is a type of bait that will. So I think that's really cool that they're trying to do something a little bit better, safer for the fish, and better for the environment. That's something I like.

Jeff Burlingame:
So here's the deal. The last big thing I want you to know about these guys is that it's a tear-resistant plastic. So it's not just going to fall apart when you rig it, but more importantly, it should stay on for more bites. And to prove that, hopefully, I'm going to put it to the test. I have no idea if this is going to work, I haven't done this. So, tear-resistant. Let's see how tear-resistant they are.

Jeff Burlingame:
Dude. I'm actually pulling pretty dang hard. Okay. So, resistant, not tear-proof, obviously. I've got to say, that's a durable plastic. That actually took a minute. That's me pulling on it. We're talking about a fish mostly hitting your hook and then just fighting you a little bit as you reel him in. And that was the thinnest plastic that they offer, with that leech.

Jeff Burlingame:
Just to ensure it's not just because it was the thinner plastic, here we have the worm. Again, feels pretty durable just from the stretch. Let's see how much it takes to rip. Oh. Wow. Dude. Wow, okay. They're definitely tear-resistant. I'm going to go ahead and say that right there. All right you guys, so there is the BioBaits from the MONSTERBASS Regional box, the National box, or the Ice box this month. You're going to get some BioBait in there. And if you want to just get them in a MONSTERBASS box, I don't know, that's the easy way to get three packs of them at a pretty good value, plus a bunch of Strike King baits, then go consider subscribing to the MONSTERBASS box. Go to monsterbass.com, get your own Regional box and the Ice box, come in at $36.99. But if you want to save $15 off your first box, you use the code SAVE15, all caps, S-A-V-E-1-5, to save $15 off your first box. Pretty slick deal as well, I would say.

Jeff Burlingame:
All right, so let's check these baits out in the tank real quick. I want you to see what the action is like in the water. Here we go. First up, we got that BioBaits leech. Look at that. Look at the action on that. That's pretty sweet. Tail's going crazy. Tons of action on the tail. It's that more flat, tapered body, so it's going to look juicy.

Jeff Burlingame:
All right, next up, we got that fluke. Wanted to go weightless on this, just to test the buoyancy of it. It's got some... That's nice, that slow fall there. I kind of like the pace at which it falls. It's more the power finesse approach, for me. But yeah, your little fluke tail there, it's got a ton of action, it's got a thicker body, easy rigging. That open belly makes it super easy to rig on an EWG like I've got right here, or if you want to fish it a little heavier to go with that belly-weighted hook.

Jeff Burlingame:
All right. Here's our stick worm. Oof. Oof. That slow sink, though. Then let it sink. If you're going weightless wacky like I've got it set up right now, it's the old, let it sink, rip it up. You get a ton of action out of that, and give it some good play there. Little dangle.

Jeff Burlingame:
Lastly, we got our little ice plastic. Threw it on a 1/16 ounce jig. And oh my gosh. Let me get it right dead center here. Look at the tail on this thing. Little jiggle. Give it a little dangle and a little jiggle. Look at that thing. That's some dang action. Boom. Just sitting there, dead stick this thing, and that tail is going to do a lot of work for you by itself.

Jeff Burlingame:
