Meet the new Ratic! Shad Buggs

After almost a year in development, we are proud to release the brand new Ratic! Shad Buggs. These new Buggs imitate the baitfish that everything we fish for eats. I know you'll enjoy reading the story, and then I know you'll like the results. But only if you fish for redfish, flounder, snook, speckled trout, smallmouth, largemouth, striped bass, hybrids, and white bass. Only those species. Otherwise it's no big deal...

As the Summer Surf heats up along the Texas Gulf Coast, fishermen answer the call of the "Dawn Patrol". They're in the water to see the sun come up and looking for big, strong, surf-run speckled trout. The new 3/8 oz. versions of the Flats Bugg with Curl Tails are perfect for long casts and getting down to the fish. They're available in the online store.

Houston - Big News as Buggs Fishing Lures make their debut at the 35th Annual Houston Fishing Show!

The reception was tremendous as Buggs Fishing Lures were offered to the public for the first time March 3rd - 7th. After a year and a half of testing, research, and development, Buggs were put on display. These unique and effective lures, utilizing the most effective materials and techniques from successful fly patterns, were purchased by Guides, Tournament Pros, Saltwater and Freshwater Fishermen alike.

Mike B. of Houston won the contest, and will be receiving a dozen Buggs Fishing Lures, custom Bugg Box, and premium fishing pliers from Eagle Claw. He plans to take them to Arkansas and find out if big brown trout like Buggs. I'm thinking they will, and we can't wait to hear back from him and get the report!

Speaking of reports, we had a return visitor to the booth on Sunday who had taken a sample to Port O'Connor and caught some nice redfish on a Flats Bugg CT. This is in addition to some bass fishermen who have wasted no time and learned that as the lunkers move into shallow water this Spring a Flats Bugg is deadly worked through the lily pads and along the bank!

All in all the Fishing Show was a great time. I enjoyed meeting everyone. Thanks for taking a sample or buying a few lures. We hope you'll take them fishing soon and send us pictures and stories of your Buggs Fishing success!

We're continuing to work on the website and plan on getting the online store up and running soon. Stay tuned for more from Buggs Fishing Lures!
