It isn’t very often that I come across a lure that looks so good I don’t even want to use it. The Rodent, by Bettencourt Baits is one such lure. Fishing lures simply do not get much more realistic then this. As soon as I took the 5 inch, 7/8 ounce Rodent out of the package, the high level of quality was apparent. The Rodent was clearly built by very skilled artisan.
I’ll be putting this beautiful lure to the test fishing for hungry spring pike in May. Stay tuned to find out how The Rodent stands up to the fierce jaws and sharp teeth of one of the most fearsome predators in freshwater!

If you ask me, these way cooler then the bottlecap lure! Great way to re-use old metal!
“Handmade individually. They are formed in a hydraulic press, cut away from excess material, drilled, sanded, patina’d, sealed with a spray sealant, and then riveted together.”
The new Storm Kickin’ Stick is yet another fine example of a hardbody swimbait. The Kickin’ Stick comes in 9 colours and three sizes (5″, 6″ and 8″) all fitted with rattles, slow-sinking buoyancy, and quality VMC hooks. Guaranteed to perform for all applications and will only set you a back about 10-13 bucks each.
Check out this video of Dave Mercer catching a musky on his very first cast! Unfortunately the video is not available to embed, though I could probably copy the html code and embed it here anyway. Instead I’ll send Dave an email and hope that in the future we can post his videos here directly.
