Recently I was slating the Storm Jointed Thunderstick as the worst looking bass lure on the market. I thought there is no way will you ever catch a bass on this lure. It looks cheap and nasty and resembles something more like a decoration for a christmas tree. In a session a couple of weeks ago I ditched it because I had no confidence in its catching abilities. On went the maria chase and within minutes Id lost it into the kelp. My only choice then was back on the the thunderstick. Several bass later and I thought the thing was marvelous, and at under a fiver a go you can afford to leave the odd one in the kelp.
