I take back my statement :lol: :lol: :lol: :doh:

Love me some 3:16 baits. Since I've acquired quit a few of them since winter, I've sold all my other swimbaits. Will mostly be chucking SB's this year fishing alone and my other junk with fishing buddies. One of the most realistic non-foiled swimbaits. :big grin:
I will NEVER sell another 3:16 swimbait again!

Hud/deps for the win. 316 are over rAted, they look amazing but don't cAtch the quality fish some of these other baits do.. The wake jr and baby wake imo are his best baits and catch big fish... Most the other baits just don't have "the right action" to fool the big smart girls

Huddleston all day. There are several fine manufacturers on the list but the Hudd is king. I believe the 8" is the most consistent at fooling the biggest fish. For me big fish are the target, always.
