BigMac Crankbaits TackleTour Review

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Thanks for the great product review on BasStar’s new Randy Mcabee crankbait.

Randy Mcabee's BigMac CrankBait on

When it comes to crankbait fishing at the tournament level nobody does it better than FLW Pro Randy McAbee. Randy has credited a number of his wins to crankbaits and has now teamed up with Basstar to create his own signature crank which is appropriately called the “Big Mac.”

Impressions: The Basstar Big Mac makes use of a number of the company’s previous innovations including a dimple surface design and Spintech treble hooks. In profile the Big Mac probably most resembles a Norman DD22 only bigger. Though both lures are 3″ in length the Big Mac features a larger more prominent lip design and weighs 3/8oz. more than the Norman DD22 making it a full 1oz. in weight.

In the Outdoors: New Hooks Can boost catch rate

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Thanks Douglas Nielsen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal for the article on Spintech Hooks. Here’s a quote from the article: “Have you had one of those days when the fish are hitting your bait but you just can’t seem to land one? Chances are the near misses have a lot to do with your terminal tackle, especially the hook at the end of your line…The second new hook design that showed promise is the Spintech hook by Basstar. Spintech hooks look like any other treble hooks you have dangling from your favorite lures, but these, as their name implies, spin 360 degrees and do so without binding. The three barbs are fastened to a tube through which the straight hook shank passes. That tube, in turn, spins around the shank or “line tie pin.”

Basst Times QuickTip

The Dredger from BasStar Bait Co. has
a lead-rimmed diving lip that adds casting
weight and produces a diving angle necessary
to reach the 30-foot “magic zone”
few crankbaits see.

Make sure to look out for the new Big Mac crankbait available for ordering soon.

"Dredging the depths"

Another Tournament winner using Spintech Hooks

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

On behalf of the Connecticut Bass Federation Nation and myself. Thank you for sending us a Superior product. I used these hooks on my Lucky Craft Crank bait this weekend Aug. 15,2010 in the Final Federation Tournament on the CT. River. I won the event with 12.22 lbs and never lost a fish. These hooks are a great asset to any fisherman. With the amount of Topwaters and crankbaits I have I will need to do a lot of replacing. As one of the Top anglers in CT I will definitely spread the word.

Thank you again

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

I just wanted to thank you for the spintech hooks you supplied the 2010 Ct Bass Federation State Team, I used the hooks today & I did not lose one fish. Normally I would lose about 3 or 4 per fishing trip. This hook could really increase your chances for winning more Tournaments!!!!

thank You

New Dredger Crankbait Chartreuse Blue Back Available Now

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

DREDGER Chartreuse Blue Back Available Now!!!

Basstar introduces the worlds first infinite diving crankbait, Dredger comes equipped with a built in rotating hook system for both the belly and tail hook along with the golf ball dimples on the body for a different reflection underwater. What makes the DREDGER different from other deep diving crankbaits in the market is that we have figured out a way to internally and externally balance the weight so that the bait will dive straight down to any preferred depth. The Dredger will dive straight down with no spiraling or line twists. Once the Dredger reaches its depth the bait will stand straight up keeping the hooks away from the bottom reducing chances of hang up. Unlike traditional crankbaits where the bait will only reach its target depth zone for a short time, The Dredger will dive to its target depth from where the bait lands and stay in the zone all the way back for the full retrieve. The Dredger has a fall rate that is equivalent to a jig, which means you can now throw this bait next to boat docks and pilings and watch the bait fall perfectly parallel to its target. The Dredger Crankbait has been producing a lot of bites anywhere from 40-60 feet but will dive to 100+ feet in depth if needed. With a bait so innovative and new the Dredger crankbait has been the bait to talk about for both Saltwater and Freshwater anglers.

Hooks: VMC

Weight: 1 1/4 oz

“Ever remember a treble hook getting credit for a major tournament win?”

What does Wired2Fish have to say about Spintech hooks.

A better mousetrap…Spintech Treble Hooks

BassStar Spintech Treble Hooks

6/4/2010 12:58:09 PM
We have seen some outstanding creativity and innovation in treble hooks in the last few months. Mustad comes out with the new short shanked KVD Elite Triple Grips and all that happens is Kevin VanDam wins the Bassmaster Classic. He was throwing a Strike King Redeye Shad with those hooks and gave credit to them in the win. Ever remember a treble hook getting credit for a major tournament win?
Recently we came upon a California based company called BassStar Bait Company who has designed a rotating treble, the first of its kind, that doesn’t allow the fish to get leverage against the bait. Anglers for years have known that this condition has caused them to lose fish on crankbaits and topwaters. Although the idea is simple, this hook surely is not. They are made with high carbon steel, have surgically sharpened needle points and are tough as nails. They are not bulky to cause baits to lose action and are built with sound manufacturing practices.
They come in the standard No. 1, 2, 4 and 6 sizes but also come in 1/0, 2/0 and 3/0 sizes for larger baits as well. More sizes are on the way.
Anglers who have tried them swear by them, and we recently spoke to Elite pro Dave Wolak who said “These hooks have made a major difference in my hooking to landing ratio. Bass cannot get leverage, and that means they won’t throw the hook. These hooks are not a novelty but rather an essential tool for my baits.”

Basstar is happy to be part of The Freshwater Lure Selector. A new application that is designed to be a reference for whatever you may already have in your own tackle box. Choose the best lure according to the two most important factors: water depth and water clarity. Light conditions are the third most important factor, and there’s a good rule of thumb that applies to most of the criteria used for the Lure Selector: Use bright colors on bright days, and darker colors on overcast days. With the Lure Selector you can visit our website and be directed to where our lures can be purchased.

New Jersey Fishing Reports

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Thanks to New Jersey Fishing Reports on giving us a product review on their site. Take a look and see what they had to say…

SpinTech Treble Hooks

Fish on! you cry. The
rod is bouncing.

Oh no, you think. The
line went slack.

What happened?

You reel up and check.

The hook’s still there.

Spit hook.


Nothing you can do
about that.

Or is there?

SpinTech Treble Hooks, from the BassStar Bait Company, are built to reduce the chances of the fish throwing the hook.

The treble hooks are the world’s first that spin, the company says.

Typical treble hooks experience leverage and torque that can pry the hook out of the fish’s mouth, it says.

The SpinTech’s rotation is meant to eliminate the locking problem, repositioning with the changing fight, providing more fluid control over
the fish.

The pin that the line is tied to drops directly down the center of the
treble hook, remaining balanced, promoting maximum performance, BassStar says.

SpinTech Treble Hooks are available for both freshwater and saltwater fishing in a standard metallic finish or a red finish.

The hooks are available in sizes 6, 4, 2, 1, 1/0,2/0 and 3/0, and more sizes are planned.

Fish on! you cry.

Now the fish is more likely to stay on.

Innovation Award

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

We at Basstar are excited to be honored with the Innovation Award by Tackle Tour.  We have been a fan of the independent site that over the year has grown to be the place where you can find answers and recommendations for all your fishing needs.

A little taste of the review

Conclusion: Basstar has a number of innovative baits including their topwater baits as well as the Dredger weighted lip deep diving crankbait, so it is really no surprise that the company came up with the clever SpinTech hooks. These innovative hooks bring a feature made popular on big swimbaits to any hardbait that anglers choose to put the SpinTech hooks on. The design of these hooks is both clever and well implemented and the hooks not only help keep fish pinned but also are able to hold up well to abuse over the long term. Will anglers that already loyal to one brand of hook be willing to try the SpinTech hooks? They certainly are worth a look and arming your favorite lure with these hooks only increases your chance of landing fish, making that lucky lure even more lethal. It is hard to innovate in hook design but Basstar manages to do just that with the inventive SpinTech hooks, a worthy recipient of our Innovation Award.

Thank you Tackle Tour

Clark Reehm 21st Century Angler Interview w/t

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Some anglers let their fishing rods do all their talking. Venerable Arkansas Elite Series pro is a saavy stick on the Elite Series but does a lot of his talking via his laptop. He is one of the most, if not the most, active Elite angler on the net and his results are starting to pay dividends.

We also want to thank Clark Reehm for joining the Basstar & Spintech Family!!

New Bass Record a Tie!!

Friday, January 8th, 2010

The IGFA announced its decision today. The 22 pound, 4.97 ounce largemouth caught in Japan by Manabu Kurita will be shown as a tie. George Perry’s bass that held the record for over 75 years will be considered a tie although it weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces. The IGFA requires a new record be beat by two ounces to be considered as breaking the old record.

This rule may not make sense, but the reason is scales are much more accurate now than in the past, and most scales in the past were spring loaded and showed pounds and ounces, not tenths and hundredths of ounces and pounds. So it is possible George Perry’s bass weighed as much as Manabu Kurita since the weight was probably rounded off to the nearest ounce.
