March is here and madness is in the air. Madness for the NCAA basketball tournament and madness for spring fishing. To join in the madness, Fishbrain has compiled a tournament bracket of our own. Here is round three of the Fishbrain all bait bracket.
Round three of the Fishbrain March Madness all bait bracket is here. We've whittled it down to some of the most famous powerhouse baits. Our elite eight has now separated the top fishing baits, to those that are relegated to the bottom of the tackle box.
Here are the remaining matchups to watch out for as we find out which bait is the best of all time.
Plastic worm vs Soft jerkbait
Crankbaits vs Jigs
Prince nymph vs Elk hair caddis
Nightcrawler vs Minnow
Elk hair caddis
We are heading toward a collision course between two of the most tried and true baits of all time. Will we natural vs plastic worm in the finals, though? This year’s Cinderella story, the prince nymph has come a long way, beating out some popular dry flies. But does it have the stamina to beat out the dry fly favorite, the elk hair caddis?
In hard plastics, it's all coming down to jigs and crankbaits vying for that open seat into the final four.
Here’s a quick look at some of our favorite baits that didn't make the final cut, but will always find a spot in our fishing vest.
Pheasant tail nymph
Pat’s rubber legs
The elite eight board is set and away it goes. Will we see an upset with the toppling of a traditional bait, or will it be smooth sailing for the tried and true classics?
Make sure and vote on your favorite baits in our head to head matchups on Fishbrain’s Instagram. Our champion of all baits will be named soon, with the help of your voting!
Now let’s go fishing. We’ll bring the best baits of all time.
