    BPS has a lure they call the XPS Lazer Blade. It's close enough to the vibe to call it the same thing.

    In my opinion, the Cicada would be just as good. The Cicada comes in more weights than the BPS Lazer Blade. The key with any of these baits is to insure that you are working them in the "fish zone".
     
  5. Dave's Baits has "Lil' Nitro Blade baits on sale. They work pretty good too!
     
  6. I asked the same thing in Tackle Talk, and got the same great response. You all are eager to help anyone that has a question. Thanks:) :F
     
  7. Try Jannsnetcraft.com, they have them. The Vibe is just a blade bait that looks like a Sonar, they work to, havent tried the BPS Blade Bait.

    Gander Mountain always has a bunch of them and I believe I've seen them at Dick's also. The bait stores at Indian Lake are usually full of them although they sell so many that they are sometimes out of specific sizes/colors.

    See you out there.

    I've tried them a few times in the fall. I've never caught a Walleye on one on C.J. but they are Hell on White Bass.

    what colors/sizes work best? i've been hearing alot of you guys talk about them, literally catching everything on them. i've been wanting to give them a shot.
     
  12. I've Been Trying Them Off And On This Year. Just This Past Weekend I Was On Sciotawe Caught Around 4o Smallies, And About 30 Crappie, I Kept Trying The Vibee Throughout The Day, Nothing On It. I Still Have Yet To Catch The 1st Fish On It. Crappie Came On Leadhead And Twister, Smallies Came On Topwater And Soft Plastics.

    I used a vibee two weeks ago and I caught probably the smallest sunfish I've ever caught. I used a 1/8 oz blue/chrome vibee. Was the only thing I caught on it. I can't say I totally vouch for the vibee but, I used three other lures that day and the vibee was the only thing that produced.

    I recently discovered Old Dutchman carries vibee's. They don't carry 3/16th oz though. However, they do sell 1/8th and I didn't see 1/8th at Gander or R&R.
     
  15. I find that I have better luck on them when the water cools down in lakes like Salt Fork. After the lake turns over it can be awsome on the larger white bass and saugeyes.I have caught well over 100 whites on it in a days fishing. The saugeyes love them after the turnover also.
     
  16. Gander-Hilliard had a good selection of 1/8 & 3/16 last week before I reduced their inventory...lol

    When casting a vibe-e into shallow water you'll want to go as small as conditions will allow. Even the 1/8 is very snaggy if you're not careful. Trust me, I know :rolleyes:.

    I know too. Not too long after I caught the sunfish, I lost the vibee. :( Probably the fourth one I've lost since I started using them.
