Hard Head Video

HardHead Biffle Now Available!

Larew’s new Biffle HardHead™ is now available, at tackle dealers and popular online tackle web sites, in all four sizes – 3/16 ounce with 3/0 hook, and 5/16, 7/16 and 11/16 ounce sizes, all with 4/0 hooks.

Biffle HardHead group shotThe HardHead, a football head weight with hook loosely attached, is the rig that Biffle has been refining and using for several months now for the new soft-plastic-cranking technique called “bottom buggin’. The HardHead rigged with a Larew Biffle Bug was responsible for every fish he weighed during his Bassmaster Elite Series victory on Ft. Gibson Lake (Okla.) in June. It also played a role in his win of the recent PAA Cherokee Lake (Tenn.)

The weight comes with all the features and advantages of a football head design, while the hook is attached to a one-piece wire form secured solidly inside the head, allowing it to move freely with the bait. Hooks are high quality and super sharp Owner wide gap J-hooks, featuring heavy-duty black nickel chrome wire. The wire’s tensile strength was a critical factor in Biffle’s selection of the hook because of how and where the rig is being fished, often on heavy line. Since the hook is a typical worm hook, the bait can be rigged Texas style, making it virtually weedless so it can come through all types of cover with minimal hang-ups.

The wire form is quality stainless steel that is shaped through a mechanical bending process made to exacting specifications. Its design is such that it won’t pull free from the head even when the angler is using heaving fishing line, including braid.

The head is cast in lead from a CNC machined aluminum mold for repeatable consistency in weight and balance. The manufacturing process is superior to the results that come from the more common silicone molds that many companies use. The weight is then powder coated with a durable antique-style black and copper color-finish that complements the most popular soft plastic hues.

Biffle HardHeads come two to a package. Look for them today at your favorite fishing tackle dealer.

Another win for Tommy!

In come from behind fashion, backed with a Biffle Bug, Tommy won on Cherokee lake in Tennessee this weekend and put back to back wins together.  With a whirlwind schedule the next few weeks, look for more action when BASS starts the Post Season later this month.

Tommy Wins on Fort Gibson

Flooding conditions on the Arkansas River forced BASS officials to move the tournament to Tommy’s backyard, and it paid off.  Tommy led wire to wire, and secured his place in the BASS Elite Series Post Season, as well as walked away with $100,000 and another blue Trophy.  To top it all off, his daughter and wife watched closely from the lake on fathers day.  Stay tuned for a complete wrap up from Tommy.

Clarks Hill final

Tommy finished Clarks Hill in 8th place, and moved up to 16th in the Angler of the Year race.  With two events left before the “post-season” Tommy has to move up to the top 12, look for him to finish strong at Kentucky Lake and then in his backyard on the Arkansas River.

Clarks Hill Day 1

Tommy is in 3rd place on a tough Clarks Hill after day one.   Weighing a limit of 5 bass for 15-13, Tommy is strongly in contention for this tournament.  Stay tuned for updates as the tournament progresses.

12th Place after day 1

Tommy is currently in 12th place after Day 1 at Lake Guntersville.
