LIVETarget BaitBall Spinner Rig Product ReviewPrint This Post
I had the opportunity to test the new LIVETarget BaitBall Spinner Rig recently. The LIVETarget BaitBall Spinner Rig is designed to mimic a small cluster of fleeing baitfish. The flash and vibration generated by the three teaser bodies and willow blade at the top of the lure roll side-to-side, creating vibration and a flicker-like flash, creating multiple frequencies to call in nearby game fish. The target body sits strategically away from the main cluster of teaser bodies. The strategic design allows the frame to be pulled through hard cover and penetrate deeper into ambush territory. The interchange system makes it easy to change and customize color patterns. It comes in sizes from 1/4 to 3/4 ounce and promises to put a new spin on the tried and true spinnerbait.
At first glance, the bait looks very intriguing with an almost Alabama-Rig look to it. But it is not an Alabama-Rig at all. It looks great with lots of promise. It comes in 8 different color combinations to help match the hatch. And they offer interchange packs so you can change out the teasers and target soft plastics. The lure looks very well constructed right out of the package.
The lure runs straight and true right out of the package and looks amazing in the water. For those who might be intimidated by the multiple arms, it really is just a bigger spinnerbait. It casts extremely well with less flutter then you would expect.
The cons are that the package comes with just the basic set up, there is no extra target body to change out if it becomes damaged. I checked in one local store that carries the lure, and there were no interchangeable bodies for sale in the store. And upon use, I found that in some instances, the grass can become wrapped around the teasers, willow blade, target body, and line time very easily. For all the vibration it advertises, I found that it was difficult to tell I actually had it tied on. Of course, if I sped up the retrieve, you could feel it. It makes it hard to mimic baitfish just swimming around if you can’t feel it working.
I see it as a plus and something that has great possibilities. I will be working with it more to find out its true potential. It is definitely something I will have to use even more to really get a true feel for its vibration.
You can find it at Tackle Warehouse, Dicks Sporting Goods, Bass Pro Shops, and other retailers, with a price tag of as little as $11.99 for the 1/4 ounce and as little as $13.99 for the 3/4 ounce size. And the 8 color combinations are: Blue Silver, Chartreuse Silver, Dark Amber Gold, Green Pumpkin Silver, Lime Chartreuse Gold, Pearl White Silver, Purple Pearl Silver, and Smoke Silver. The Interchangeable Pack is a little more difficult, as some only offer it as backorder for $6.99 and up. The LIVETARGET BaitBall Spinner Rig can be found on their website, https://www.
