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.
We back troll them in the river out of our drift boats for Steelhead. One hit so
hard Saturday it tore the back hook right off my #4 salmo metallic gold and orange.
My buddies are mad I bought all the #4 vikings and gold and orange you had. I also
would like #4 metallic clown dace I think it is. I ordered 2 #5s but we need some
more hornets please. They run so true in the current thats its not fair to the
people that dont know what we are using. We tell them we are using Hotshots or
wiggle warts Ha ha...
I guy a meet at a local store recommend these salmo hornet lures so i bought some and
they have been cathcing fish. thought I would get some backups of some of
the ones I have and try some new ones.
I use salmos when I troll for walleye on lake Winnebago in east central
Wisconsin. They seem to catch the most fish. It must be the action they have
going through the water that the walleye like. The #4 seem to work the best.
Colors change from week to week, and sometimes day to day.
We troll them between 1.5 and 3 mph. We fish them in 6 to 14 feet of water.
If we fish them any deeper, we use lead core line. We fish Devils Lake,
North Dakota, mainly for walleyes, but also catch white bass and northern
pike on them.
