1 Heck of a bait
I have caught so many white bass with this lure that it is unbelievable. We are allowed 25 per person per day and we will catch our limit and bend the barbs back for catch and release. When the whites slow down you can slow down this bait it it will catch just as many. We have used it in muddy cold water and they attack it and will get caught in the side ,dorsal fin, tail and the head. It is amazing how they will attack this bait. I would like to see a better quality hook on these but for the money you can't beat it. I ordered 60 last month. I have added a picture of my fishing room. I have added more to this since the picture was taken.

Was recently in Canada, fishing Rainy Lake for a week and was having trouble catching slot walleye to take home. On the second to last day we were there, after finding out where the fish were and what they were eating, We headed out to the location and I tied on one of these in the Red Crawfish color combo (at the end of a wire leader of course). That last day of fishing, I caught the Northern you see in the picture (38") and 2 slot walleyes. I also caught a couple perch that hit the 2 1/2" lipless (I believe it's 2 1/2", whatever the bigger of the two sizes is). Earlier in the week, the smallies were kinda hitting the same color.

This has maybe become my favorite lure. I have took it out fishing 3 times now and have caught over 50 fish on it. One of those was about a 6.5 lbs black and it even managed to land two bass on the same cast which I would have never thought possible(shown in picture). The hooks are have bent a little but I just ended up bending them back with a pair of pliers. May not be the best quality but it definitely works!
