Video Transcript

Brad Garrison:
Oh, oh yeah. What is up everybody? Welcome back to the MONSTERBASS Channel. I'm Brad with Shield Outdoors and we're going to talk a little bit today about how to keep your mind open and thinking outside the box when you're rigging up before you go fishing. Now, before we talk about that, make sure you follow and subscribe right here on the MONSTERBASS Channel. Make sure you click the little bell, so you get notifications and make sure you check out MONSTERBASS on Facebook and Instagram. And if you're feeling oh so kind, you can check me out on Shield Outdoors on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and especially YouTube. Now, let's look at some of these lures.

Brad Garrison:
This video kicked off in my mind after I got a lot of questions. When I showed this Z-Man CrossEyed jig and a Christie craw that I paired together, both these items came in MONSTERBASS boxes and I had a lot of questions. People were like, "What are some of your favorite combos?" Today we're going to talk about over 20 ways that you can rig one Curly Tail Chasebait. As you can see on an item like this, I perfectly matched these colors. Everything just came together so well on that, but it doesn't always have to be like that.

Brad Garrison:
Today we're going to look at the Chasebait's four inch Curly Bait. It is a big old ribbed body curly tail worm, just as it sounds. Here's a couple still in the package. This color specifically is called apple juice. Like I said, the body is ribbed. They have glued on eyes. And what I mean by that is it's actually a little holographic shiny eyeball that's glued onto the head of the bait right here at the nose and then a big fat classic curly tail. Now, my buddy has MONSTERBASS, he also got Chasebait's Curly Baits but these are 2.25. The color on these is milk flash. Luckily he got this color and this size, I got what I got and now I can make a video show and you guys both. His, just like mine except much tinier. Now this color is white on the bottom, clear on top with a lot of gold glitter whereas the apple juice is kind of a clearish apple juice color is the best way to put it, I guess. It's a clear bait with purple glitter though. Same eyes, same shape, same big fat curly tail.

Brad Garrison:
The number one thing I want you to take away from this video is that you need to think outside the box. And what I mean by that is don't ever close yourself off to only one way when you rig an item. Look at all these different items. Almost all of these, I got out of MONSTERBASS boxes. Right off the bat, when I opened my October MONSTERBASS box and I saw these Chasebaits, well these, I also saw a Thunder Cricket, and I thought, well, ain't that just perfect? A bladed jig with a big fat curly tail and here's the thing, you don't have to use this big one, you could easily put this little guy on there and have a more compact setup depending on what time of the year it is and what your forage is in your local water, you may not want a big, giant fat bait, you might want this little guy. Either way, you could give this a shot on the Thunder Cricket.

Brad Garrison:
Now bladed jigs, I got a ton of them. I got Falcon Lake Craw, Thunder Cricket, I got the black blue Thunder Cricket. This color is a green with a black flake. And look how good that apple juice fits in. Now, I'm not going to close my mind off to just that. Everybody's throwing paddle tail swim baits, especially this time of year. Why would you not try a curly tail? Just a simple under spin. We looked at these in our last month's box for MONSTERBASS. An under spin with a curly tail, just switching it up. Everybody's throwing a paddle tail. Switch it up.

Brad Garrison:
Let's see. Now of course there's the classics, Texas rig, you could even, you could drop shot this bad boy. You could especially drop shot this little guy. Carolina rig, keep it down there on the bottom. My walleye guys, they see stuff like this, they just start thinking about walleyes, but everybody thinks about that kind of stuff. How about a buzz bait? A little buzz bait for my little guy here. Ain't nothing stopping you from putting this sucker right here on this little buzz bait. Oh what? You like big buzz baits? The Strike King Buzz Toad? Look how big that sucker is. That would easily take this giant four inch curly tail and now you've put movement on the back. A lot of people are weary of buzz baits because the movement is in the front and they feel like they miss the hook, the fish misses the hook. Why not put a big old curly tail back there?

Brad Garrison:
Also from a MONSTERBASS box, the Z-Man SlingBladeZ. I haven't even opened this bad boy up. Ain't nothing stopping me from putting that curly tail on this sucker or oh, I don't want the big one, the little one. Just a little extra kick. There nothing wrong with that. Sometimes people need minimalist stuff. That's too much flash. That's too much movement. Too much vibration. How about a lifted jig? This is the lifted ball head jig. Got it out of a MONSTERBASS box. Ain't nothing stopping me from putting these suckers on here. Oh, you don't like the way that a jig head moves? Well, how about a belly weighted swim bait hook with a screw lock? You all, you just got to keep your mind open.

Brad Garrison:
How about just regular colored swim jigs? This is the V&M. How about another Z-Man product? The freedom. This is a jointed jig head chatter bait. How about, ooh, another MONSTERBASS item. Some Sandbar Tackle. Couple months ago, we got these Sandbar Tackle hooks. You could rig this any way you want. You could even do a giant drop shot with us with a hook like this. Let's see, jointed structured heads. Also a Strike King product. Let's see, ooh, oh, what going into winter? What do we have here? An Alabama rig. Everybody uses a paddle tail on their Alabama rig. If you want to be different, if you're fishing pressured water, you could set up an entire Alabama rig with this or maybe you have two or three paddle tails on this sucker and then you set up your chase, whoa take it easy. Maybe you set up your chase item.

Brad Garrison:
And what I mean by that is a lot of people will have three items, closer to the head of their Alabama rig and then they'll have a big trailer way back here. Maybe switch it up because the fish are going to key in on the uniqueness. A lot of times they key in on what's different on an Alabama rig. A lot of people will throw three white swim baits and then a clear one or vice versa or just something to throw off that back bait from the rest. Why not throw a big fat curly tail on the back? Oh, what? Also right here in my October box, spear point hooks. Now this little pack, two on, three on, four on, you get one of each with an extra wide gap. The options are endless.

Brad Garrison:
Now, why did I make this video? Why did I make this? I want you guys to keep your mind wide open. There's a million ways to rig fish and lures There's a million ways to catch a fish. One of the biggest things I like about MONSTERBASS is the variety of stuff they give you. Almost everything here I got in MONSTERBASS boxes or you could see in a MONSTERBASS box. Every item on this table is companies that MONSTERBASS has an established relationship with and you could see in their box at some point. You just got to keep your mind open. This little curly tail right here, I could easily rig up on to two other baits in this one box alone. You just got to keep your mind open.

Brad Garrison:
On the last MONSTERBASS video that I was featured in, we had over a 100 comments. I want that again. I want everybody to drop below and drop a comment right here. Make sure you click that subscribe button and follow. Make sure you let us know what else you'd like to see. I'm telling you all, don't sleep on MONSTERBASS. Keep your mind open. Keep your ideas open. This all started just because I put a Christie Craw on a CrossEyed jig. And now here, I'm looking at 20 different ways to rig just a simple curly tail. This is what most people start fishing on. Most people start fishing with a curly tail bait and Chasebaits is over here providing us one lure that we can use over 20 different ways. Just telling you all, keep your mind open, keep fishing. Thank you so much. Make sure you check out MONSTERBASS. Peace.
