Ultimate Bucketmouth Baits is the newest Presenting Partner to join the PAA Affinity Program. Not only can PAA members get special PAA Only Pricing, they can take advantage of what is essentially the initial offering of several new baits, sure to be hot in 2010. Anglers may recognize the name and even seen a few of the products since launched at ICAST in 2009. Ultimate Bucketmouth Baits is the creation of Brian Kanke, a PAA member and competitive fisherman out of Spring, TX. Brian’s time on the water, and frustration with several other baits on the market, spurred his thoughts of striking out in his own direction. His background in design and engineering made the transition to a bait designer easy, and with a year of development under their belt, he and his associates are geared up for 2010.
The Lunker Ugly Frog, the bait that started it all, made a splash when it hopped into the game in Orlando. Everyone that seen it loved it, and Bassmaster.com named it as one of the editor’s top picks from ICAST. What’s unique about the frog is its true lifelike appearance and action, due to longer front and rear legs. The bait is designed to be worked like an actual frog, rather than the more traditional buzzing retrieve of other soft plastic frogs or toads. The Lunker Ugly Frog actually floats in the water with the legs down and head out, just like the real thing. A slow subtle retrieve along weed lines and lily pads, and a Lunker frog, is a recipe for success. In addition to the frog, PAA members can pick up everything they need to trick it out. Ultimate Bucketmouth Baits offers the perfect oversized Owner hooks to match it, along with Lunker City Insert Weights for the perfect balance.
Although the frog is sure to be deadly, Brian and his staff are also producing some great pitching/flipping baits under the “Ugly” line, as well as a new Tournament Worm and some accessories. As far as what does the future hold for Ultimate Bucketmouth Baits? Brian said plans include continued expansion of the soft plastic line, including two February introductions to coincide with the Classic. Brian will continue to promote the company through his own fishing efforts, with a very busy schedule including the PAA Bass Pro Shops Tournament Series. His primary focus will be on all the BASS Opens, with the goal of making the Elite Series for 2011.
