Maiden, N.C. – B.A.S.S. Elite Series angler Hank Cherry has added Creme Lure Company to his tackle box for the 2015 season. Creme Lure Company, the company that made what most anglers consider the largest impact on bass fishing when Nick and Cosma Creme release the first soft plastic worm back in 1949. Their molded worm, known as the Creme Wiggle Worm, was made up of vinyl oils and pigment, they both looked and felt soft and alive and didn’t dry out when exposed to air.
Fitzgerald Rods and Allstate Pro Rich Howes knows a thing or two about punching mats – he used the technique exclusively to win the 2013 Bassmaster Southern Open on Lake Toho, earning a spot in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic at Lake Guntersville. The first Southern Open of 2015 is just around the corner, returning to Howes’ home water of Toho, and his mastery of punching heavy mats will again come into play. While many of us have put the rods away and begin the long wait for warmer weather, Howes is already on the water working to reclaim his title. In his first of many articles to come this winter, Rich Howes shares his punching setup for the thick mats of Florida.
