I actually caught these 2, 15 inch largemouth bass with one cast!!! They were caught in a private pond on the opening day of bass season. The "Tater Bug" has struck again!!! The second pic was another day and that was all that I caught! I think the two for one would be a good testimonial for the site....
Here are a few photos from some great folks up in Wisconsin. Some of the photos were taken right after Thanksgiving 2008, and the rest are from a recent 2009 trip shortly after ice out. Dave and Buck said that on the most recent trip, they caught 132 Bass in 5 hours and over 100 of them were caught on Intruder Baits.
Where am I when these guys are out kickin' back and haulin' em in?
Thanks to Buck Hendrickson and Dave Conners for sending a pot load of photos. I wish I had room for all of them. Way to go guys. I didn't know that they had that many bass up north, maybe its all the cheese or the funny accents?? Yes I talked to them… I t seems that with their success using the lures, they decided to call up and discuss the possibility of representing us in their area.
Yesterday, I found really good topwater action but the bait was small and the stripers seemed keyed on it. So after losing 2 nice fish. I switched to jerk baits and then figured I'd try and match the hatch and the only smallish minnow plug I had was one of your Intruder Pro Shad Jerkbaits. On my second cast, I nailed a pig, well over 20# maybe 30# and it came unbuttoned. I was expecting to see bent hooks and what I instead got were 2 face scales on one prong of the front treble hook. In the next hour, I hooked 4 more fish in the 4-12# range. I found that gliding the bait along the current seam of the river and just barely twitching my rod tip every couple of seconds was deadly. I never even let the lip dig more than 3 inches under the surface. It was a completely different way of working a jerkbait for me personally.
I'm going back today to hopefully repeat yesterday's success.

Nelson Burnell of Canal Fulton, Ohio lands a 20 lb peacock bass on one of the prototypes of the Intruder Pro Shads. Nelson is a veteran peacock bass angler and had been field testing these new jerkbaits on the hard fighting peacock bass. This trophy peacock came from a lagoon off a tributary of the mighty Rio Negro, the largest blackwater tributary of the Amazon River. Nelson was fishing out of the Rio Negro Lodge. Despite water conditions that were not optimal for prime peacock bass success, Nelson did very well on the Pro Shad.
So I am on leave back in Texas at my in-laws pond. It was a cool 86 degrees outside and 0635. I tied on the Frog colored Frog Pop-Top II. The first cast was unsuccessful because I hit a tree, and the rest... Well let me tell you! I landed 47 Large Mouth Bass that morning and into the afternoon. The largest weighing in a little over 8 1/2 pounds. Over the next three days I used the same Pop-Top II, the Jungle Chrome Ridge Runner II, the Golden Perch Pro Shad, and the Jungle Chrome Enticer. The 4 days Bass total was: 236! My buddy came out to join in the fun and was very successful with the Pro Shad series. For these baits application, they are one of the best I have ever used! I know, I used them in a pond but I have had amazing success back up at my duty station of Wisconsin too! & I have caught Muskie, Northern Pike, Large/Small mouth, Walleye and Crappie (and 1 catfish) on the same lures in area lakes and rivers. So, keep on making them Dusty, they do work! Thanks for getting these lures to me! Chief Bill Garcia fishing while on YNC(SW/SCW), US Navy Madison, WI ;
