Development of the 2nd Generation Trout Thumper Swim Bugg is complete and production will begin in June.  We are targeting late summer for the release of this new Bugg, and invite you to join the waiting list for your favorite colors and sizes!  The Trout Thumper is the first Bugg I designed with speckled trout in mind.  It worked very well, but over the years I discovered several ways to make this bait more effective.  I incorporated every one of them into the 2nd Generation Trout Thumper, and I absolutely can’t wait to get it into your hands!   These improvements include: Larger, more reflective Eyes.  Custom Chenilles to match the baits, including metallics and UV reflective fibers.  Larger Tail for More THUMP!  Downsized Profile to better imitate baitfish and for better hook up ratio.  The Coastal Combo will include Dawn Patrol, Mardi Gras, Chained Beast, Electric Chicken, and the new Black Gold color (yes, same as the 2nd Gen Curl-Tail you love so much!).  These colors work best in murky water.  The Clearwater Combo will include Ghost, Gray Ghost, Croaker, Greenback, and the new Blue Glimmer color.  This new color comes with a matching 3″ grub and incorporates the SlowRoll concept, with the flutter action of the grub as it falls.  These colors work best in clearer water.  Complete recipes, tying instructions, and tying video will be available soon.
