Have you guys seen or heard about the 3:16 swimbaits that cost a whoppin $250 each! :shock: No it's not a typo! $250.00 big ones is correct, not $2.50!! :shock: :!:

Ok, now, if I was in the market for a $250 lure, I would at least expect the manufacturer or retailer to SPELL correctly.... the ad says "expect Viscous strikes"! So we should expect wet, sticky, thick strikes using this? :shock:

P.S. Baefish, it should be spelled 'vicious'! :lol: (sorry, had to Bae!)

ya know what, so was the one at the other link! I doubt i'd stock em either, who knows how long it would be before someone would pick one up...
They were out of the first two colors, but they had the other two in stock when I checked.

They use those for those rainbow fed 20 lbers. If you ever get a chance, read the book Sow Belly, which talks about the pursuit of the world record bass. Imagine going to Deep every weekend and having a shot at the world record :p

On a serious note with these uber expensive swim baits... wouldn't a REAL FISH that actually swims for real, and has real meat, be as bait be just as effective?! Cheaper too! :shock:

thats what i was thinking too. imagine how many live shinners or suckers you could buy, and probably how many more fish you would get in the end.

but I suppose if i were hooked on getting the world record bass i might buy one...

yeah, doc, i only checked the first one that came up. but i am kinda surprised they aren't a custom order or backorder only item.
