Are the BPS plastics any good? Tubes, grubs, cajun critter all look good but never used them. Any good colors to use? What are the comparision to Southern Pro?

I use a lot of the BPS Squirmin Squirts in the 2 inch size . They have 18 different colors and they cost about 1.39 for 15 . I do use other brands as well but these are good little baits .

See ya Kevin ><)))*>

I use the tubes a lot. I they're pretty good. Colors are relative to conditions and water clarity. I like tri color black/green/chart, orange/chart, black/chart, blue/chart, blue/white, yellow/white, pink/white, green/white... I think I could go on and on.

I think the biggest thing is find a color you catch fish on and then you'll have confidence in it. For me my go to's are the tri color and the orange/chart.

I bought some from BPS a little while back, only got to use them one time. The Crappie Beaver seams like it will work real well, the only time I used it, the first three cast caught a fish.

I like their tubes. I have tried many other brands and have found that bps has a good quality tube. colors do not fade very much over time and the size and cut of the tube is very consistant. Many other brands have a longer tube body and I have found that crappie don't seem to like that as much. BPS tubes have a shorter body with just the right length of tail. It looks more compact and I have gained confidence in that aspect of the bait. CF

I've been using BPS Sparkle Squirts for as long as I can remember using plastic "tube" jig bodies :D
My favorite is the "Electric Blue/Chartreuse" in 1.5" size.

In comparison to "Southern Pro" tubes .... I've found SP tubes to be a little bit "softer" (which can be a + or - ) ... but, otherwise, comparable to BPS Squirts/Sparkle Squirts.
There are a lot of good tube mfg's out there. Most have the usual array of colors & combo's. Lengths are usually: 1.5" ... 1.75" ... 2" --- so you can always find pretty much whatever color & size you're looking for.

Don't forget to look over (and consider using) the Crappie Pro Solid Body Tubes ;)
Panfish Assassins --- Charlie Brewer Slider Grubs --- Fin-S-Fish minnow body --- Culprit Crappie Grubs --- Renegade Solid Body Tubes ..... are some other choices to consider.

I have used the tubes and they work great. Recently I have switched to a local guy that makes jigs. But I have had great success with them.

Got a BPS Crappie kit for Xmas and have been pleased with the quality of the plastics themselves (tubes, mini-craws, mini-frogs, minnows and grubs) but haven't landed anything with them yet. I think the spawn will change that....

Hey crappiepappie: have you been in my tacklebox? Every plastic you named is in there....:eek:
