Newly introduced in May of 2015, this tri-laminate tube has already made waves. Last weekend the Xtreme Bass Tackle™ staff took this limited edition bait out to play and got good results.
The bite was slow on the Mile Roads so we moved down toward the Detroit River and found smallmouth bass cruising around everywhere that there was sand, rock and shallow water. Normally they chase down baits that are moving in the middle of the water column but not on the day we were there. As it turns out, they wanted the bait on the bottom and they wanted Sweet Green LE™. We ended up catching over half of our smallmouth on the 4″ Sweet Green LE™ tube.
The bait has a Formula G3™ back and Canadian Mist Lite™ belly that includes a chartreuse glow showing though the front half of the tube. The green pumpkin top and green glow on the bottom make up the dominant color of the bait. The highlight color and most likely the color trigger for this particular bait is the small purple flake that runs across the top and bottom along the full length of the tube.
Not to be outdone, Canadian Pro Bob “Jigger” Mann and Capt. Mike McGrane took Sweet Green LE out a day later and generated action too. This first photo and text came in from Bob:
The next photo came in with a hefty smallmouth held up by Capt. Mike.
