Lunkerhunt awarded “Best of Show” for “Best Soft Lure” at ICAST 2012

July 20, 2012- Lunkerhunt recently announced winning “Best of Show” award for “Best Soft Lure” at the ICAST 2012 fishing convention in Orlando, Florida, for Bento BaitsTM.  Lunkerhunt Bento BaitsTM are a minnow styled soft lure with a split tail design and solid body construction.  What sets these baits apart is their anatomical realism combined with a soft yet durable body that comes to life with the slightest twitch of the rod tip.  Bentos feature a holographic fabric core that fuses into its plastic like rebar in concrete.  The multi-layer construction that encases the eyes and other features within layers of protective coating is truly unique.  Bento Baits are available in both 3” and 4.5” size with a range of realistic patterns that generate both feeding as well as reaction strikes. Lunkerhunt Bentos produce great results in both fresh and saltwater environments due to their resemblance to natural forage such as gizzard shad and glass minnows.

“The team at Lunkerhunt is thrilled to have won the Best of Show award at the American Sportfishing Industry Association ICAST 2012 Fishing Convention. It is the highest award that can be won in the fishing industry.  We are honored to have Lunkerhunt’s Bento Baits win this category” explains Jesse Bleeman, Executive Director at Lunkerhunt.

    These Bentos are great on a drop shot rig for smallmouth bass. They can’t resist them. The holographic core looks amazing (pics dont do it justice). These Lunkerhunt Bentos will take soft plastics to a whole new level.
