 I\'ve got great baits from both suppliers. Baitmasters has a wider selection for trolling baits in general. They also have better Horse, rigged and unrigged, IMO. There\'s just something about having a cooler full of bait delivered to your front door. That\'s hard to beat. All in all, I get my Horse Bally\'s from Baitmasters and my regular Bionic ballyhoo/select from Bitters.

Another thing you guys can do if you don\'t want to stockpile baits up is to brine them.

Night before, take a small cooler fill with ice a bit, put single layer of ballyhoo on ice, sprinkle with salt and baking soda and make sure the water drains from the cooler. I\'ve tried wet and dry brining and think the dry works alot better.

You can get good and bad baits from any store. If you follow what fins said you should be in good shape. However, there are some brands that are consistently better. My personal favs are the Just Rites and Expomars. Those were consistently the best when I used to work in the shops. The Plantations and Baitmasters are decent. Bionic was hit or miss. Worst are the killer bees hands down. Rare to get a good pack of those. Can\'t figure out why everyone likes the Bionics so much. I can only assume people don\'t know what good ballhoo are. When I used to brine them people would always pass the expomars and get the bionics. Maybe a ballyhoo with pefect color scares people

Old post, but was wondering if anything much has changed over the last year with any of these companies.  

Where\'s the best place currently to buy horse?  And does anyone sell a quality \'hoo that\'s larger than horse?  Also, which ones will ship to NC?

     The baking soda makes the baits ridiculously tough and can you can troll them longer.  We used \"kosher salt\", no we\'re not jewish, but the baking soda and salt really made the ballyhoo tough.

Last time I was in Fishermans World they only had Bionic Ballyhoo.  I like the Bionic and have never had a problem, same goes for the few packs of Baitmasters I have used.  I do not have good luck with Killer Bee baits much less the ballyhoo.
