Hot n Tots back
"Hang Onto Your Hats. Storm Lures Are Back."
Ladies and Gentelmen. Heres my Christmas present to all of you. I've kept this under my hat for a while, and have had a hard time doing so. I am honored to have recieved, scrutenized and tub tested some and the very few of the first new lures Produced by David Storm, son of Bill Storm and nephew to all those beloved Storm guys who made the now defunct (true) Hot-N-Tot and lure related friends. Both the company and the lures name of course is different. The company name is Daves Ka-Boom Baits and the lures name is The Winning Streak. Dave has retained many of the old crew and the design technologies used in the old Tot maufacturing process. I guess its no secret that I'm both partial to the Storms personally and to the great lures they made in the past. But the proof has always been in the pudding. And not much escapes the scrutinizing eyes of a good fisherman when it comes to things built well and that works on the fish. Here are some of my honest opinions on this lure, without actually having tried it on the true lure tester, the walleye.
It comes in the 1/4 ounce size. The right size in my own estimation for a lot more applications than the bigger size. It appears to me to be a cross between a Rattle Tot and a Hot-N-Tot. Has a rattle in the body, and a hardened aluminum lip and connector link, like the old model Tot. It seem real stable and has an erratic swimming action. Honestly, not quit the searching action his cousin had, but close. Comes in 36 colors and has a lot of my own favorite Saginaw Bay colors included. Comes with #4 Aberdeen Short Shank, Eagle Claw, Wide Bend hooks. I scanned both catalog pictures and color charts sent to me and will share same with anybody wanting to see them. There supposed to be in the stores by late January. Cabelas, Gander Mountain and all the big local outlets around the Saginaw Bay are supposed to have them as well. This will indeed be a Merry Christmas and happier New Year for me and thousands of other walleye junkies.
