The point here is that when Tommy Biffle says he has designed the perfect soft plastic bait, it’s time to take notice, and that’s exactly what he’s saying about the brand new Gene Larew® Biffle Bug.
The Biffle Bug incorporates the best features of several top baits into one compact 4.25” design that make it a prime choice for just about any fishing situation. The body is slim yet wide, and covered with concentric “ridges” spaced evenly from its nose to where the tail starts. The ridges give the bait lifelike action and “sound” as a result of friction contact each time one rubs against limbs, grass, rocks or whatever.
Although the first ¾ inch of the 3-inch body is solid for hook support, the rest of it is hollow like a tube, borrowing a feature from the Biffle-O family. The cavity is oval, not round, better fitting the shape of the body and also serving to hold a round rattle in place simply through natural compression. The hollow design works with most rattle styles and makes for an extra-loud sound chamber. Compressed foam and/or scent can also be added to the bug’s cavity.
Outside of the body and on each side are three tentacles about ¾-inch long. They, too, serve as contact points for cover, making the bait react instinctively like a real-life creature each time one hits something. Together the six projections also work as stabilizers to keep the bait running true regardless of how it’s rigged.
Then there’s the legs; hyper-active swimming legs, with one located on each side where the body ends and the tail begins. These legs come from the Biffle-O Lizard and feature a special foot-pad to make them come alive with the slightest movement. They add unbelievable action and versatility whether fishing the bait Texas-rigged, Carolina-rigged or on a jig. When the fish are in a more subtle mood, the legs can be easily removed at the indicated pinch marks.
