Hey "old style" Storm Lure fans......


Recommended Posts

Storm just announced this last week that they will be bringing back the original lures made from the old molds.

The Thunderstick will be a one piece lure again and the Hot-n-Tot will once again have a metal lip. They will be in the old packaging as well as the old color schemes, only thing different will be the logo.

This is not going to be a "one time" deal either, and they will continue to produce the new line as well.

That is great news. They really messed up shutting them down before. The new line was not well received at all.

The new/old/new-again Hot-N-Tot was/is a favorite in many a area and should sell well again, if it is up to par.

Any word if they are going back to the old color schemes? I have had horrible luck with the chug bugs since they started using the new colors.
God lyk!

I love hot-n-tots! Thunderstcks as well. My crankbait box consists 1/2 Storm lures. Rapala made a poor choice(IMO) to change the line of Storm Lures. I think they were trying to promote thier own products and eliminate competition. I love Rapalas as well, but when something works, leave it alone. Dave, the son of the original owner of Storm is now marketing the "new" (old) line, I do believe.

Northlander I'm out of the Hot-n-Tots.
If I'm not running boards and have everything deep using Down Riggers I'll put the Hot-n- Tot on a Dipsy because of its side planning abilities thus allowing me to get more lines down and out. Normally you don't want a diving bait on a Dipsy because of its negative effect. However there is a way to rig a diver onto a Dipsy using a release which actually changes the attitude of the Dipsy making it dig even more.

I also run Hot-n-Tots off the boards. This would always be my inside and deepest set on the boards with shallower presentations on the outside. You can run weight 6 ft ahead of the Hot-n-Tots or snap weights 20, 30, 40....ahead of the Hot-n-Tots. Hey you can run them behind the boat too. I could go on and on but I've prolly told you more then you wanted. smile.gif
The majority of my Superior stick baits are Bombers but I do have a few ThunderSticks that I keep highly guarded. grin.gif
You'd have better luck asking to borrow my wife. LOL.
