Choosing the Right Blade Bait with Jacob Bros

Thu, November 3, 2022

When it comes to cold water smallmouth, a blade bait can be one of the most effective ways to get bites, and today, Omnia Fishing's Jacob Bros is on the water chasing cold, late-fall smallmouth in water temps below 50 degrees. Jacob reviews some key fish-catching differences among four popular brands of blade baits. First, the Megabass Dyna Response is a great option when smallmouth want the most subtle blade bait vibration possible. This bait also features a tinseled tail for added attraction and comes with some of the best stock hooks for a blade bait on the market. Another great option for a subtle vibration with great, vibrant painted colors is the Molix Trago Vib. On the more aggressive side of the spectrum, the Deps Circuit Vib has a hard vibrating action that kicks with minimal movement - a great choice for more aggressive fish under the right conditions. Lastly, Jacob's favorite is the Damiki Vault Blade. The Damiki Vault comes in three sizes in a wide variety of colors, and this specific blade bait is a perfect middle-of-the-road option on its vibration intensity. With the Damiki Vault being a solid day-in and day-out option, there is always a preferred time for more subtle options, such as the Megabass Dyna Response or the Molix Trago Vib, or the more aggressive vibration seen in the Deps Circuit Vib.
