I was introduced to Bass Assassin lures while fishing Red fish and Sea trout in south Texas. They worked so well that I thought why not bring some back to Minnesota and try them up here in the northland with my guide service. These lures can catch fish anywhere! I caught my personal best walleye 31 1/2 inches on a sea shad with a chartreuse tail. I use them for bass, walleye and northern pike with great success.
I’d like to thank Capt. Frank Bourgeois from Always Fishing Charters for donating a box of assorted Bass Assassin, Salt Water Assassin Lures for our May Sea Trout Tournament. Each entree got a couple in the Diddy Bags we give to them for entering our tournament. You might think we gave them gold when they saw them. The lures helped to make our tournament a big success. Thanks to Bass Assassin and Capt Frank for their generosity.
Just recently I caught my personal best Speckled trout on a walk in wade. 32″ 9.5 lbs, she was caught ‘double tapping’ a Saltwater Assasin Die Dapper on a Bass Assasin Pro Elite 1/16th ounce jig head.
Your 4″ Sea Shad Glow has been the most productive lure I have ever fished here in the backwaters and flats of Homosassa, FL. In 0 to 3 ft. depths for Trout and Redfish, I nose hook this lure with a 2 live bait hook (wife 2 circle hook) and fish as a jerk bait. In fast water or water over 3 ft. I fish this lure on your Bass Assassin 1/8 oz. jighead. All species eat this lure. That being said, on a recent trip to New England I decided to try this lure in fresh water on a jig head. The weather was terrible and the streams and rivers swollen and muddy. However, in about a total of 1 hour of fishing in 3 different streams I caught the largest Rock Bass I’ve ever seen, a Yellow Perch, and in some fairly clear water, 2 Large Mouth Bass and the biggest Small Mouth Bass I’ve ever seen.
