2019 Bass Gear Guide Pt 1

26 of our favourite baits and terminal gear we saw at the 2019 South African Tackle Trade Expo.

LiveTarget Hollow Body Crawfish

The LIVETARGET Crawfish Jig combines a hollow body bait with all the features of a great jig to create one of the most realistic crawfish imitations we have ever seen. This one is going to be great on the Vaal River and those big bass factories up north.

Lunkerhunt Phantom Spider

The Lunkerhunt Phantom Spider is definitely not for the self diagnosed Arachnophobes, but we hear big bass are a fan. Developed for dock dwellers on many US lakes, this ultra realistic spider imitation features a hollow body construction with durable legs that move independently when twitched on the surface.
