Watch Large Mouth and Smallmouth Bass inhale our real rabbit hair bass fishing lures from Fishing Hunting Supply.com or Furry Fish Baits.com

 

Does it seem that the bass hold onto this longer?

Looks good on TV, but---

the rabbit hair jigs and spinnerbaits, have not done well.

They were a hit when they were first introduced---some anglers reported negative results.

(I have a video of the OEMS lures---as I said, it looks good on TV. They show you what they want you to see).

 

Rubber legs jigs or spider jigs, are much more productive.

I believe the living rubber, on the rubber legged jigs and Yamamotos Hulagrubs, have a more natural feel, in the fishes mouth. The rubber tentacles, move in the fishes mouth, when the fish moves his mouth muscles.

 

(Stop by GAT, see Ken, for an in store demo).

 

The smaller size objects, flys and streamers, with the rabbit hair/fur, are productive.

Thin strips are better.

Leech imitators, 2-3" sizes, as well as the Olive Zonker---

fished on a fly rod or drifted under a float, on long rod light action spinning gear.

 

Can you say, "float-N-fur-fly"?

Yeah, I knew it was used in fly tying, but couldn't recall seeing it on jigs before, at least not in the stores. Then of course, I started wondering what exactly Jonn is using on his "float 'n fly".

It does all come down to that first instinct.

Well, we can probably assume the "first" instinct is movement? Smell comes into play somewhere in the process as well.

I've got some rabbit hair jigs. They work just fine, too. Are they the best thing since sliced bread?... No.

But, I've caught fish on them.
