So, the proof is in the pudding. I told someone the other day we catch larger fish on lures than we ever did using cut bait. I’m basing the statement off 27 years of fishing for “Old Drum” 6 years ago I changed my description to “Trophy Reds”. This was for a reason, it’s along the time I transitioned to using strictly lures to target TROPHY REDS. LOL, it’s all fun! but here we go. My largest reds to date have all come on artificial lures, here a few from the other week.
