Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver 4.20 10pk - $4.79
Reaction Innovations' soft plastic baits are becoming the hottest baits in the bass fishing market. The reason for their success is easy to see once you get one of their baits in your hands. Reaction Innovations has been able to perfect fantastic two and three color shots that give the Sweet Beaver great swirl and two-tone patterns unlike anything you or the fish have ever seen. Also adding to the great success of the Sweet Beavers is the unique design. Owner and pro fishermen, Andre Moore, has taken his years of on the water experience and created a bait that is tough and compact, but moves a lot of water and has lots of action in almost any situation.
The body of the Sweet Beaver features forward facing ribs that create lots of pressure waves that let bass know something is moving and offers bass a texture that they seem to like when they inhale the lure. The centerline is recessed for better hook penetration but the 'nose' of the lure is thick to hold your hook without tearing on every fish. The long, flat, beaver tail is textured on the flat surfaces and along the edge, and it's splitable so you can have a twin tail look, an attention to detail not seen in most soft plastic lures. The Sweet Beaver also has additional tails set at 90 degrees to the beaver tail for fish attracting movement no matter which way the lure is moved.

Comments: These are some of the meanest flippin' baits I've ever used! when fish are pressured, I use these baits with much success!
From: Kevin: TN 7/11/14
Comments: Pairs nicely on a MESU Raptor swim jig; caught my personal best on a 1/2oz green/purple/wtrmelon and a Violator trailor. Same 1 bait held up through 6 fish and could've still kept going.
From: Patrick: Milwaukee, WI 6/3/14
Comments: This bait still catches tons of fish. Lots of Beaver follow ups that are good. Pit Bosses work, but they suck for durability (what does it matter if a pack costs $2.50 when it only lasts 5 fish?). D Bombs are good, but with no centerline rib to hold a good straight shank they can be hard to hook. The original gets it done every bit as well. A little tip is to take a o-ring and slip it over the 2nd or 3rd ring of the bait. It will help the head stay together for a fish or two more typically.

Comments: I only fish California and Dirty Sanchez most of the time. Has anyone noticed that the past year or so the colors they are putting on the shelves has changed drastically? Dirty Sanchez and California are not the same color they were 2 years ago, or anything close to it. Frustrating because I am frantically searching for a replacement or a pack of the old color style.
From: Chris: AL
Comments: Sorry; not a fan! After reading tons of reviews I couldn't wait to get my hands on these baits. Upon arrival I was very displeased with the hardness of the plastic and also the over powering smell of plastic. If I feel the need to throw a beaver style bait my first choice would be the Havoc Pit Boss.
From: Gary: PA
Comments: these are my favorite soft plastic baits as trailers and texas rigs. These were one of my first soft plastic baits i used when i started bass fishing and i still use them almost every time i go out bass fishing
From: Dave: CA
Comments: These things work. Definitely going to get some more.
From: Daniel: College Station, TX
Comments: Absolutely LOVE these baits. My personal favorite color is Dirty Sanchez. I keep two baits tied on at ALL times. a spinner bait and a Beaver. I fish em Texas rigged and catch fish. Put em behind a jig and catch fish. Punch em and catch fish. Throw em like a Senko and guess what...catch fish. As far as plastics go this is by far my "confidence" bait. I have a lot of luck on the river with smallies and spots when i pitch it up on the bank and drag it in the water. Sorry for the rant but DO like these baits.
From: Kevin: Mt. Juliet, TN
Comments: These baits are great for the fisher on a budget. Though they don't have all the action that a lot of soft plastics do, they do have durability. And when the fish want a little less action these are the way to go. Plenty of colors to choose from and 10 to a pack for only $5! that's a steal! I also like the slightly smaller profiles of these compared to other "rodent" style baits. I usually texas rig these but after reading reviews I'm going to start using them as a trailer.
From: Sean: OR
Comments: These bait's r awesome either with a jig or by it self texas rig.
From: Nitroman: Muskegon MI
Comments: best bait by far I have ever fished I flip em and use them as a jig trailer.
From: Bob: Diamond Valley Lake
Comments: fished the magic craw swirl and watermelon red!! went through them like butter!! this bait out does any bait that I fished with.. best bait EVER!!!!
From: Matthew: Milwaukee, WI
Comments: Zeke, its not always a bunch of action that you want your bait to have. The claws on these move back and forth when stood up on the bottom. One of my favorite punch baits. Backwater blue and dirty sanchez get the job done.
From: Bryce: Trabuco canyon california
Comments: Fantastic bait. Fished the white trash color near eddies in the river or near the edges of weedbeds on inland lakes. Fish with a VMC Rugby head and fish it like a jig. Definitely going to be one of my new go-to lures.
From: Mark: Elkhart, IN
Comments: Very durable baits but absolute crap when it comes to action, I get more action throwing a bare hook and fishing on credit then with these baits.
From: Zeke: FL
Comments: These baits catch big smallmouth in the river when they are running a lot of water. i am very pleased with these baits. great job reaction innovations!
From: Adam: Bristol, TN
Comments: The Best beaver style bait on the market! Sprayed Grass rules!
From: Scott: Lexington, KY
Comments: Its not the most durable but it is my personal favorite soft plastic lure on the market. This thing puts fish in the boat! My favorite color has to be waterbug. If you want durability then switch to a missle bait D-Bomb!
From: Jalen: Brenham, TX
Comments: Dirty Sanchez is the color to use. Place it on the back of a Triple Rattle Back jig in green pumpkin or dark green pumpkin. It works really well on Jordan Lake, NC.
From: Dan: Cary, NC
Comments: Pure radness. Dudes were fighting over these when they first came out, but now everyone can enjoy em. Flipped, pitched, weightless, on a shakey head, or just texas rigged, they catch fish, and good ones. Not durable at all, but that is why mend-it is around. Been slayin the fatties for over a decade, so if you dont fish 'tha beave' then you kinda suck.
From: meatwad: huntin beaver
Comments: Got a pack of Xmas pumpkin a couple week back and decided to give them a try. Put one behind a jig and Bam! Fish on. Also tied it on a Texas rig, got three in about 20 min. These baits are very durable too. One last note te baits are not scented so the action speaks for itself.
From: Ryan: Chitown, IL
Comments: Reaction Innovations Sweet Beaver 4.20 10packWow!! what a bait. i out fished my fishing partner 3-1 on similar baits!!! hands down the best creature bait on the market!!!
From: James: Minnetonka, MN
Comments: No doubt best color is dirty sanchez.
Comments: When money is on the line, and I am flipping weeds, wood, or any heavy nasty cover, the RI Beaver is my go to bait. Durability........not so much, but they catch, and that's what counts. There are alot of knock offs out there, and most of them can't touch the Sweet Beaver. I have fished quite a few of them, the Netbait B-Bug, SK Rodents, Yum Woolybugs, they all are bringing up the rear compaired to the RI Sweet Beaver. It's Reaction Innovations or nothing for me.
From: Brad: NY
Comments: This is an awesome bait, even my eight year old brother can catch some nice bass with it. Here's a little secret: it works great in open water rigged weightless with a wide-gap hook.
Comments: Oh my goodness! This bait is amazing. I got hematoma and green pumpkin/watermelon to punch or pitch into the weeds. Try this bait i think you will like it.
Comments: This is by far my favorite Soft plastic for jigging. I use the Hematoma and the California 420 and i love them. They have pretty good durability and last for a while. The are really BOSS and catch a lot of fish.
From: Henry: San Luis Obispo, CA
Comments: Still whackin em after all these years. Add a punch skirt and take your friend's money!
From: Meatwad: not donating
Comments: These baits are killer on my home waters of Lake Champlain! Get in the grass and flip and pitch your heart out! You'll fill your boat in a hurry! Fish on!
From: Nick: Colchester, VT
Comments: Best ever, it's simple, they produce fish and quality ones too. A little hard, but it does not seem to bother the bass!
From: Kollin: USA
Comments: Love these baits !!!!!! they are awesome for flippin and pitchin. Magic craw swirl is my favorite color. Texas rig it and flip it into the slop and hold on.
Comments: Caught an 11.13' bass flippin on the Green pumpkin. Have had several 3-5' on these baits. Fish other types but always return to this bait for it's productivity.
From: Fill: Crystal River, FL
Comments: this is the all time best flip bait and jig trailer in the world this my alltime time all year round i use all the sizes and almost all the colors all i can say if i had to have to pick one bait to use for the rest of my life i would teaxs rig this with a 1/4 to 3/8 oz bullet weight BUY THIS BAIT
From: Shawn: Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Comments: Great for flipping and pitching. i like the berkley chigger craws a lot better though, they have more of a flutter action on the fall. but all in all this is a great bait and catches a lot of fish!
From: Tyler: Cincinnati, OH
Comments: These are my fav Creature soft baits 4.20 Green Pumpkin. I catch so many bass on these. Also split the leaf in half it gets bite more
From: Sonny: East Wareham, MA
Comments: The BEST creature bait on the market! This is my go to flipping and jig trailer bait. Colors I prefer are backwater blue, big texan, bloody mary, coonasty, juicy, hematoma and magic craw swirl. They all seem to do really well in my local waters. Just tie one on and go catch some fish!
From: Eric: Northern California
Comments: best flipping bait i have ever used. this bait helped me get into states 2 years in a row. if flipping is what u like 2 do this is the bait 4 u.
From: Kevin: Lower Burrell, PA
Comments: Absolutly love green pumpkin as a jig trailor! i take scissors and cut the ribbed abdomen in half to fit better on a jig and make it less bulky and unnapetizing for fish looking for something compact which must be alot, cause the fish absolutly love it! cant wait to start using this to flip and pitch ive heard nothing but good results!!!
Comments: hmm, there are 15 copycat baits on the creature page, think this bait isn't the real deal. so many ways to fish it, so so many colors. only creature you need, only one i use.
From: Jeff: North Jersey
Comments: Dude! these are just the best flippin bait ever.... i was flippin this bait today, into and around the weed matts were the bass had been piling up to get some shade, and since this baits is so good at gettin in and out of thick cover. I whacked em! caught a 5 pounder, two 4 pounders, and a bunch of fish at or below 3 pounds in only about an hour. rigged a green pumkin one with a 1/4 oz tungsten weight and a 3/0 gamkatsu superline worm hook with 15 pound seagar Abrazx.

From: Harold: Arkansas
Comments: The ultimate matted grass flipping bait!
From: Dave: Grand Haven, MI
Comments: I LOVE THESE BAITS! GOT TO HAVE ON TIED ON. I HAVE LEARNED THAT IF I DIP THE TAIL (50% OF IT) CHARTRUCE MY BITES ARE BETTER AND BIGGER. I BELIEVE THEY SEE IT AS A PERCH IN THEIR BED OR DYING! NUMEROUS FISH OVER 5LBS. LAST YEAR I BOUGHT MY DAD A PACK IN WATERMELON RED AND HE DOESENT FISH EVERY DAY LIKE I DO AND NEVER USED THEM. WELL WE WERE FISHING SOME SPAWNING FISH AND I WORE HIM OUT USING THE BEAVERS SO HE WENT HOME FOUND HIS STILL IN THE FATHERS DAY BAG I GAVE HIM LAST YEAR AND CAUGHT 36 FISH ON A PACKAGE OF 6 IN A WELL STOCKED POND. HE CALLED ME UP AND SAID HE NEEDED MORE SO I SENT HI $45.00 WORTH LOL!
From: Anthony: Paris, TX
Comments: This bait was perfectly designed to catch fish. The larger body profile coupled with smaller appendages makes it easy to pitch under docks, small areas and punch mats. Biologically, fish are programmed to eat it. I own several different colors but my favorite is green pumpkin with the tips died in chartreuse and orange spike it. Won a couple tournaments last year on this bait.
From: Mike: St. Louis, MO
Comments: Amazing creature bait for flippin' and pitchin'. My go-to tournament bait.
From: Joe: Hartsdale, NY
Comments: This is one of the best soft plastics ever made. this is truly a blessed baits it really catches bass..
From: Dennis: Las Vegas, NV
Comments: Love this bait caught 50 plus largemouth in two hours with the biggest exceeding 6 pounds, caught all the fish punching mats. Love these baits.
From: David: Spokane, WA
Comments: This is my go to bait, even on those tough days so many of us experience. i have caught a ton of my better fish on it and always have one tied on even if they are deep i got one rod i use for them and it is always on the deck of my boat.
From:Jeremy: Glenpool, OK
Comments:I use them for flippin and as a trailer on jigs. Love them.
From:Earl: Campbellsville, KY
Comments:Have been using as jig trailers...work well!
From:Paul: Lake Hickory, NC
Comments:Great flipping bait, I recommend putting a nail in the front... gives it a different look.
From:Buzand: Castaic Lake, CA
Comments:A good bait for flipping. I have caught some kicker largemouth and smallmouth on it. I'll actually do well fishing it on a 1/4 oz. or 3/8 oz. shakey head...like the Reaction Innovations or Picasso. I stick with the stand bye green pumpkin and black/blue type colors.
From:Jon: East Fallowfield, PA
Comments:This is the best flipping bait. great on the Cal Delta. have caught multiple fish flipping and punching with it. This is better than any other flipping bait!
From:Dan: Oakley, CA
Comments:Comments:A versatile bait. The Sweet Beaver is good flipping bait, with decent size and good bulk. But it excels as a whole. Dragging, Carolina rigging, jig trailer. Ive had good success with a light T-rig, including one tournament win and many kicker fish.
From:Chris: S. California, USA
Comments:Not the BEST fliping bait like everyone says, it's ok, I used the oxblood and caught a couple fish. When I switched to a craw, the fish started to bite, caught five in a row.
