secret 7 and sudden impact summer river testing
Known facts= Mississippi river. Weather between two storm fronts. Air temp 96. Water temp 85. Area fished woody structure 2 to 8 feet of water. Banks and coves with slower moving water. Baits secret7 dip worms and 2 furry things threaded on a 8/0 circle hook. #6 treble hook for sudden impact. Time on water 10hrs starting at 7am.
How it went down and what happened= It took about 5mins to figure out that the sudden impact did not belong on the river. Any current at all washes away the bait and fiber within 30seconds. That rig was replaced with another secret7 rig. The secret7 held best to the furry thing and held pretty good to a bill dance big nest bait holder. I would say the bite was slow because of the jacked up weather but when they hit the 7 it was off to the races. The 7 held very well in the swift current as well as the calm water. I also used a rod with magic bait cebo one with sonnys and one with cut shad. Never got a bite on the others. I half to say in tough fishing conditions during a hard bite the s7 came through with 2 blues and 15 channel cats. I am shure the sudden impact has its place and its a good idea but I just couldn't get it to hold together in the river. I think it would work pretty good in a lake and I plan to try it there soon. I hope this little test helps somebody along the way.

Secret 7 is about the only stink bait that has worked for me. I also have a pint of sudden impact I have not caught anything on it though.

Brandon, I use the Sudden Impact in the Missouri River on #4 trebles with a spring using 6 to 8 oz of lead. It stays on until a cat hits it. I usually check every 10 minutes if no takers and it still is on there. You need to be sure to stir the stuff, it gets better with stiring. I go through a couple gallons every year and works well. The springs hold that stuff well. Another awesome fiber bait is the "Stick-It" bait by Magic Bait. It has so many fibers you actually think your line will break getting out your treble hook from the stuff.Fire at will, which one's will? Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk

update on sudden impact
First a reply to the last post. Yea I stirred it did everything but put a drill powered paint mixer in the bucket. On to the topic at hand. Talked with a lady and who I can only asume was jeff at team catfish. This person said they designed the sudden impact and was told if I was having trouble getting it to hold together in extremely hot weather was to shred up a cotton ball. Work it into the fiber bait and pull that up onto the hook. Brilliant why the Hell didn't I think of that. Going to try it this weekend on some flooded willows and shallow sandbars. I will let yall know how it goes.
