Anyone using Bass Mafia Products????
« on: December 27, 2017, 04:41:37 PM »

Over the past few months, including a sweet Christmas gift from my wife, I have been collecting Bass Mafia Coffins.  While I think that they are ridiculously priced, they are SWEET:

No, I will not be using them. They look to be very well made, but I can't justify the pricing. $40 for a 3700? $60 for a terminal box...I mean come on . That's gettin' pretty close to more money than sense if you ask me, but of course no one is asking. It may be just what people are looking for, and it's great to have options, and I hopethey sell a bunch of them. Coll name / logo though...

Someone gave me a box of theirs that is very thick, hard and tough that I decided would be good for various jigheads and related heavy items with sharp hooks. Waterproof, or at least resistant also, so it has worked well so far. The box weighs a ton with all the lead in it and holds up pretty good despite this.

I had a bad time for years fishing all those tournaments on the Great Lakes and big waters, especially with boxes holding up and not getting wet rusting all my hooks! I guess if you find a specific need that the product meets it might be worth it then.

I went last week and picked one up from Dicks. I have never ordered custom bait before, but I just got a bunch of them made up(jerk baits and crank baits) they weren't cheap so I figured I would protect them the best I could. I know they probably won't catch any more fish for me but they sure are pretty LOL. Time will tell I guess. I will also get one terminal box as they look awful sturdy and well set up(for organizing weights and keeping them separate), not mention the water proof part.

If you believe a lure will catch fish better for you... it probably will. Says Confucius (I think he said that??)

After using them now for the better part of the 2018 season, I am super impressed with how well they hold up to a Great Lakes beating!  I am also bothered by the price, but I fish out of a smaller 16 and a half foot aluminum rig, and space is at a premium in my storage boxes.  Anything that helps me organize and saves space is worth a bit more to me.

I am super impressed with them so far Dan!  Only time will tell if they are worth the big investment...

I'm glad that they are working for you. It's rare (these days), that product lives up to as advertised....I won't be buying but wouldn't mind as a gift.

I bought the terminal box and the crankbait coffin.
They are expensive but good products. My only complaint is with the coffin, after a rough ride on st. clair, I opened the box and was surprised to find a bit of a mess. So you can't really turn the box over or go bouncing around or they may come out of there slots.

I'm not sure many companies have figured out yet how to tame the Great Lakes. Helps ourselves too though if we try to not outrun what the lakes are giving us. Trying to do that can get expensive fast.
