What's the most you've ever paid for a bait?
The consensus around the North American Fisherman office is $30 — maybe $40.
Still, even the most expensive big-fish baits in our tackle boxes pale in comparison to the Mother —the latest example of handmade, boutique tackle decadence.
For a swimbait.
But the Mother isn't your average swimbait. It's a 100 percent handcrafted piece of fishing art that excels at catching 30-inch-plus bass.
Yeah, you read that right -- 30-plus-inch bass.
Just ask Manabu Kurita, the guy who recently caught the bass that tied the world record. He fishes the snot out this swimbait. And this video shows the type of fish he lands with it.
Manabu also tells of another fish he hooked on a Mother — but lost during the fight — a giant he estimates at 28 pounds!
So, the bait catches really big fish ...
Does Mother offer a payment plan?
