Welcome to our "Gallery". I like to keep things as simple as possible, the only criteria to get your photo on here is that you must have been using something supplied by "Chico's Lures" to catch the fish in the photo. I don't care if the fish is big or small but a nice clean image is essential.

Get your photo on by sending the image to thewaits@btinternet.com

Been a while but Chris Lowe recently contacted me ref. Ti Leaders and just happened to mention a "34" he had whilst using one, here is in all of her beautiful enormity. A fantastic looking fish, thank you for sharing Chris

OK a massive cheat coming up, that is me and not the angler.At a recent Lincoln PAC talk I discovered that Terry Eldridge is a big fan of the Lucky Lizard spoon and has has plenty of fish on them, now the 32 below was caught on a Lucky Strike Lizard but it was on one he had bought from somewhere else but as he has since bought plenty from me I really thought I should show what they are capable of.

A cracking fish at over 32, caught on a Lizard, tail cropped as the boat was too short to get her all in!

Kevin O'Keeffe mailed me to  refresh his memory on the name of this Cobb's Perch bait, so I told him

He then told me he wanted to know as he had just had his new PB at 25.08 on it too! A cracker Kevin.

Tony McTaggart  sent me in this very nice shot of a cracker on a Manta

Jimmy Minors just had this cracking Perch on a Smuttly DB5. The perch wasn't as shy as Jimmy! Lovely looking fish though.

Sie Blaydes had this sweet mid double that gave him the fight of the season on a Dadson's Blade bait Lil' Darlin, An absolute minter.

Andy Scott just happened to mention he's had a nice fish or two on the MM Spinnerbaits and then sent me this! This one fell to the charms and the thump of a 3oz Texas-T Huey.

Very pleased he shared.

Simon Blaydes, just what can you say about him that hasn't already been said? He took delivery of a lovely little Smity Scuttlebug on Sat. morning just before he left for a days chubbing and decided that he'd see how it swam.

First cast and a non chub-shaped bulge followed her across the river and BAM!! This sweet mid double nailed it!! First Scuttle Bug, first cast and the first "Gallery member to hold a pike like a machine-gun!!

Well done Sie.

Photobucket

STOP PRESS-that lad Blaydes just mailed me another pic that he just took, seemed that after a perch session he chucked his scuttle bug in again, had perch attacking it and then this

Photobucket

Sie is mightily impressed with the Scuttle Bug, he has has a maximum of 12 casts and 2 spankers.

Pete Kennett getting in with the topwater action with a Smity Scuttlebug, unweighed but just about a double, she christened Pete's new Scuttlebug by "sipping" it off the top.

Jamie Pearce is getting far too regular on here! Shows he is catching though.This double, Jamie's new topwater PB came to a Smity Scuttlebug. Congrats on the new PB and throw it some more.

Ciaran Wilson aka "Mr Lucky", bagged a bumblebee manta from us in a PAAS raffle then went out and had his first ever 20, this 23.12 on it! To top things off he was using one of our Ti's too. Congrats Ciaran, hope it's the first of many.

Micky Jones with a cracker of a 22.08, caught on a deadbait of all things! Thought I'd include Micky and his latest girl as he buys lures by the barrowload from me and he is modeling his lucky "Chico's" shirt.

Never had a twenty or want to catch more? Lucky shirts are available!!!!!!!

Jim Gourlay recently beat his lure caught PB with this 18.06 beastie (sorry but it is a Scottish fish). Came to a Lac Seul Manta, the Bumblebee was just for comparison. Top work Jim.

Jamie Pearce with a cracking new PB at 23 and change, top job and rightly over the moon with her. She went like stink apparently but one of our Ti leaders was more than up to it, a Musky Armor glove helped stop any raker rash.

Yes the MM's are meant to be a "Big fish" bait but one attracted this little fella who was clearly punching above his weight.John Forrett practicing for the bigger girls

Ben Thomas looking very pleased with himself modeling a Smuttly hat and a Musky Armor glove, I'm sure the very sweet 20 is purely incidental.

Ben Thomas modeling a prototype Smuttly hat and wearing a sexy little Musky Armor glove. Included as his old hat seemed to have lost the little "mojo" it had so I sent him a new one to "field test"-result-his 1st ever pike on a spinnerbait !!
