Mixed results. The quaility of the bait is excellant IMO. You can drag them all day with a skirt and they seldom wash out. I'm not 100% sure I'd rely on them in a tournament, maybe in a pinch.

Eric,

It sounds like you know of a place to get better Ballyhoo. Where would you get Ballyhoo you would rely on in a tournament?

As far as I know, Baitmaster is as good as it gets. It's certainly better than anything I can buy locally.

TeamJefe,

I don't think your problem is the Baitmaster 'hoo's, I think it's the double hook rig.

Never had a problem with any of their stuff and we use it nearly every tournament (B-hoo, big squid and ribbons). Lately they are zero-balance on ribbons and say they don't know when they will get more since the area they get them from is now off-limits due to NASA and Homeland Security.

I never bought the double-hook rigs but the singles work very well for what we are after.

I think the bait quality from baitmasters is great. Its the rigging that I don't always trust. Buy the ballyhoo from baitmasters and rig it myself is my perferred method, but sometimes either you run out or don't have time to rig a bunch.

We have lost a big dolphin as well a few years ago on that same double hook rig. The second hook broke off when the fish jumped. Great bait but better if you rig yourself. That being said, we strictly fish the single hook rigged baits now. But those are dull hooks and you better spend some time with a file on the them.
