The Hornet #6 is the ultimate bass crankbait! Many agree, and for good reason. The signature rod shaking action of all Hornets simply drive bass crazy. The best thing you can say about the Hornet #6 is that is talks to the angler as much as it talks to the bass. Ideal for casting long distances, the Hornet #6 telegraphs every weed, rock or log you run into. Big walleyes love the Hornet too, many walleye tournaments on the Missouri river in the last two years were won on this outstanding Salmo lure Sinking Hornets? It might very well be the most revolutionary thing to hit crankbait fishing in years. Think about it, if the bass are in 25 feet of water, it is nearly impossible for a crankbait to run that deep with a cast. With a sinking Hornet, you can fish in 30 feet of water with a small profile lure with ease. Spots, smallmouth and largemouth bass anglers catching fish like crazy but you won't here them say a word about this deadly technique because they want to win tournaments! Always use a snap or loop knot when fishing with and Salmo Hornet.
I am going to use these lures to catch largemouth and smallmouth bass.
We cast and long line troll.
I tried a couple of Salmo lures in Canada last year and I liked them so well that I
thought I would get some different kinds for this year. I'm still trying different
ways to use them but they seem to catch walleye and pike any way that I try them.
I fished the AIM event at Oconto last week and I fished with Don Loch
and Dewey Stewart. They used these #4 floating hornets almost exclusively and did very well
with them. I didn't have any of them so I will start my collection with
these and see how they do in Colorado and Wyoming.
Salmo Hornets will mostly be used for trolling on Winnebago and Bay of Green bay for
