Finesse News Network's Gear Guide: Lunkerhunt's Bento Baits

The Bento Bait garnered the Best-of-the-Show Award in the soft bait category at the 2012 ICAST. It is manufactured by Lunkerhunt of Toronto.

The Lunkerhunt Bento is  minnow-styled bait that is graced with a split tail and a holographic fabric core. The Lunkerhunt folks note that its solid body construction is soft but durable, and it readily twitches, quivers and undulates with the slight provocation, such as an angler merely squeezing his hand around the handle of a spinning rod.

Lunkerhunt proudly proclaims that the Bento's body is embellished with biologically correct detailing.


Lunkerhunt says they are effective in freshwater and saltwater.  And freshwater finesse anglers can affixed them to a drop-shot rig, a small Jika rig or a Gopher Tackle Mushroom Head Jig. Lunkerhunt proudly proclaims that the Bento's body is embellished with biologically correct detailing.


They are available in two sizes: 3 inches and 4.5 inches. It is manufactured in five color schemes: Dace, Emerald Shiner, Sassy Shad, Golden Shiner and Perch.


The suggested retail price is $7.99 for a package of  six three-inch Benton Baits or five 4 1/2-inchers.
