I have been looking for good water snake imitators to catch bass with, and I ran across these two sights. The first was a snake created by a dentist, from materials he uses in his business. The second was Bogbaits, which seems to be big on scent attractants, including anise seed. Some of the colors are interesting, but I am not sure about buying the whole Hannon big bass system. Forty dollars seems like a steep introductory for a lure, and maybe I missed where you could just order individual colors. One thing I would really like to see is more pattern, especially bands, ie the banded water snakes that seem to be very wide spread. The Mann's hard nose in Moccasin is getting close, but how about some red tones mixed in there.
Of course there are many other snakes that enter the water and this may be worth a look as far as colors and patterns.
Well, fall is almost here in Florida so I will be switching up a bit anyway, but I still like worms because the Bass move into the shallows where these snakes seem very practical.
