Braggin' Rights!

Angler: Dennis Weaver

Tournament: Permian Bass Club Classic Championship

Standing: 1st - Tournament Winner!

Location: Choke Canyon Reservoir, Texas

Fish Weight (lb): 14.478 !!

Bait Used: Cyclone Baits - Thunder Rattle Jig (1/2 oz. / Alligator)

Story: Dennis Weaver, Sequin, Texas, fished a local club tournament, March 10-11, 2007. Dennis was pleased to win the tournament, but the real prize was hooking up a 14.478 lb lunker on a Cyclone Baits - Thunder Rattle Jig!

The story starts out with Bayou Outdoors sponsoring a fishing tournament on Lake Sam Rayburn, Texas, where Dennis received a diddy bag with a Cyclone Baits, alligator colored 1/2 oz., Thunder Rattle Jig. The jig made its way to the Permian Bass Club Classic Championship in Dennis' tackle box. Now, Dennis was not familiar with Cyclone Baits, but the morning of the tournament, he was looking to throw a jig of a certain color, and that's when he found the Thunder Rattle Jig, and it joined the hunt for a big fish. Dennis threw the jig and... WHAM!! - hooked up a 7.5 pound hog on his first cast. Soon after, a big sow of a bass was on the line - the dream of any angler is to hook up a huge lunker during a tournament. Hooking up a fish that weighs 14+ pounds during a tournament is now Dennis' reality. That Thunder Rattle Jig hooked up two fish and more than half of Dennis' total weight for the two-day tournament.

Needless to say, Dennis is now more familiar with Cyclone Baits and Bayou Outdoors. After the tournament, he contacted us to share his story, and the story keeps getting better. The Big Bass was turned over to the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center to become fish #431 of the Budweiser ShareLunker Program - View Full Stats.

Dennis Weaver's trophy bass didn't challenge the Texas state record, but it will be released into an aquarium at Cabelas in Buda, TX to join other trophy fish.

Cyclone Baits has now become Dennis' go-to bait for jigs and spinnerbaits, so the story continues with more fishing, catching and dreams of tournament trophy bass. Congratulations Dennis!

 

Product Description:

The Thunder Rattle Jig is designed to allow you to present your jig to bass hidden in thick cover with a minimum of hanging. So whether you are after big bass in hydrilla, in buck brush, under docks, beside cypress trees or in brush piles, give the Thunder Rattle Jig a try. We know you will like it. Our Thunder Rattle System gives your jig the most noise with the least fuss. The rattle pods swing away from the hook shank where they don't interfere with hook sets. This free swinging system also creates more noise because the pods strike obstructions as the jig is falling creating a loud "tick" with each hit. The Thunder Rattle System sounds more natural which makes it appeal to fish. Try the Thunder Rattle Jig for yourself today and you will put more fish in the boat.

Reviewer: Richard "Jigger" Grimes - July 27, 2007

I fish a jig a lot, and there are three reasons I like Thunder Rattle jigs. 1. They catch bass, not only do I get bit, I get the bass hooked up good. 2. I use a pork frog and the rate of fall with a 3/8 oz jig is slow. I can watch my line as the jig falls even if I am fishing shallow water. 3. The way this jig comes through weeds and scum is amazing. If any gets on the jig a sharp tug usually sheds it all off. I never get hung up fishing pads and grass.


Reviewer: Joe Murphy, President of Get Reel Bass Anglers - December 3, 2006

At my age, I dont stand a lot, so fliping sitting down sometimes you don't get a good hook set, but with your jig I haven't missed a fish yet. Weighed in a 13 lb bass on your jig on Sam Rayburn Lake, Jasper, Texas. Cold front conditions and 15 mph winds Sixty-five guys and gals fished this Saturday and only 7 limits of fish were weighed due to cold front conditions and 15 mph winds. Thirteen pounds was the winning stringer, caught on your jig. Thanks!
