I saw these in the store the other night and had a little chuckle. And then I thought about those monster Trout some of you catch in the middle of the night. Wonder if a big Brown Trout would eat one of these?

Both are from Savage Gear and available at Cabelas.

I have personally witnessed a large fish take a duckling on the WI River, likely a big pike or musky. It was a crazy scene.

I saw a pig largemouth take a duckling on a golf course pond in FL once. It definitely happens...not sure if it'd be effective at night for trout, but you never know.

Ever seen a Bullfrog eat a bird?

I've seen a bullfrog eat a baby duckling. No joke. Totally messed up my childhood.

We use the SPRO Rat up at the cabin. It catches monster bass.

I have caught fish on both already. We cant keep these on our shelves at work. Big bass on the mouse and pike on the ducks. Get after it guys they're a blast.

My first thought is that the hooks might be too big, although one could think of it as a "you must be this tall to ride" type of restriction.

I've done well with browns on a Z-Man finesse TRD, which is allegedly a great bass lure (looks like a stubby-ass senko), but it's also only 3" long between the jighead and the plastic.

Here's another video of a fish taking a duck. Not the best video, so you kind of have to focus in closely on the ducks.

I was fishing in a canoe, for crappies, on a large lake known for Muskies.
We are floating a drop off with some over hanging branches out over the water.
There was a clump of acorns towards the end of this particular branch.
A squirrel would crawl out the branch and the top would just dip into the water, causing the squirrel to scurry back.
After about 4 or 5 tries, the squirrel got brave and got pretty far out on the branch.
BAMM!!!@
A huge Muskie comes out of the water and the squirrel was gone, branch just shaking!
Holy smokes, what an incredible thing to witness.




About 30 seconds later the Muskie came up out of the water and put some more acorns on the branch!!!Woot
