What Would You Name Your Sig Bait?

In the spirit of whoever was inspired to name the “pinky-dink” color, I started to wonder what I’d name a color…and then what I’d name a bait. Hmmm.

First thing that came to mind was Andre Moore and his…uh, “colorful,” sometimes hilarious bait names at Reaction Innovations.

(Reminds me of the time Z and I interviewed Andre for the old Loudmouth Bass show. We bleeped out about every other word, but the interview was pretty clean – we thought that was funny!)

But then I was listening to the Boneyard on satellite radio this morn, and what comes on but “Ze Wango Ze Tango:”

Too bad couldn’t find a vid with Ted in his loincloth for that one….

Anyhow, I start thinking – kind of a cool name, but what kind of bait.

Had to be Ted’s bad influence because I started to think…jerkbait?


Lol. Seriously, though, if I wanted to design a signature Fluke-type bait, I think the Wango Tango would be a cool name. Maybe even for a, uh, big worm too.

Think my sig bait would be either a worm (ol’ reliable), a Jewel Eakins Jig-sized jig or a grub. A grub is also ol’ reliable for me, but has anyone ever designed a signature grub?!

My signature color? Don’t know. I’m a big fan of chartreuse added to brown or black. “Booger” is a name that comes to mind, but I’m sure someone has named a bait color that already. Just not too many things chartreuse. Maybe “inchworm?” Nah. “Alien craw?”

I’ll keep thinking on it. What’s your signature bait type, name and color?

    My signature bait is a black tube, so the bait I’d call The Tube-inator, and the colour would be Black Magic since a tube is a “killer bait” and it works like “magic”.

    Sig Color: “Arff” sort of a dog turd brown Tube Bait.

    Regardless of what it looked like, I’d probably call it the MurderSlayerHitmanAssassinKiller SuperDeathMax XXX-treme, if only to go along with the current trend of mindless hyperbole.
