goin for the first one
around here in sparta michigan me and my friends live by a saying and that is "every lake has its monster" and from hearing stories about the camp lake monster pike. i have told my friends about it and only my friends who have had visual encounters with this pike believe in it. one story was that they were swimming and it swam against my friends grandfathers leg and he said it was bigger than him ive personnally seen a smaller version of that pike 3 years ago when i started to bass fish and he was a 4 foot northern then and my friends say its bigger now and theres plenty of the monster pike in there. in estimate the pike is about 6 to 7 feet long. thats the biggest one ive heard of. anyway im only 14 and when i try for this monster ill just be 15 and 5 months old. this is going to be garunteed a go to for catching em' im getting one other jig a dardevl or two 2 big jerk baits and two big buzzbaits

Good Jigging Spoon
Don't be put off by what seems like a weird hook arrangement -- I've caught quite a few striped bass, white bass, and hybrids on this lure. Be aware that when you order on line you sometimes get different hook sizes for the same size spoon. Suggestions: (1) Make hook size more consistent (2) Offer replacement hook rigs (3) Offer luminescent (glow) finish for deep water or night fishing.

Must have in the box
I have used this lure for two years on primarily white and stripper bass. It is a guaranteed fish on if you have any skill at all. Be aware if you have young or inexperienced anglers with you that you may want to remove one of the hooks as the spare hook can get stuck in your hand with a feisty fish on!
Drawback is that the finish tends to get beaten up in a fairly short time.

Take the bass by storm!
If you haven't tried out this new technique called "freestyle jigging," what are you waiting for? Give it a try! This is a new technique, so many bass have never seen jigs like these before. More like jigging spoons, you should fish them vertically near docks, bridge pilings, and deep structure. You can tie the line to either end, the hook eye providing more flutter. I like this lure also because of it's double hooks. This makes it much easier to get a hold of the fish, and easier to set the hook. The fish will also have difficulty throwing out these hooks. I recommend a longer than usual rod, sensitive, with a soft tip, like a G. Loomis IMX 7'6" Flipping Rod, which has a lot of backbone and sensitvity. Use braided line to detect bites easier. Set the hook with a flip of the wrist as soon as you feel the bass load up. I recommend color silver or shad. They are very flashy and look just like a dying baitfish.
