Bass Pro Shops XTS Lures - Pencil Plug
This lure is incredible. Considering its < $2 price one could not ask for more. The walk action is really realistic, it makes a lot of sound / splash while moving.
It is really good for beginners as it is really easy to walk.
Chain pickerels like it much more than my more expensive walk type top water lures.
Originally I had one in the 81 - Minnow color, by now I ordered more.
The only negative is the hooks that are not so great but for the $2 price I will not deduct a whole star because of them.

I went out to Lake Ontario to test out this new lure. I made sure to read all the reviews before making my purchase and as everyone said, the hooks do require swapping. The Lure in itself is EXCELLENT; its even managed to fool a few seagulls!! I would highly recommend changing out the hooks though, I wouldn't wanna catch a HUGE BASS on it, only to lose it cause of the hooks! GREAT LURE!! GARBAGE HOOKS - GOOD DEAL! :D MUST GET!!

I have used this bait in both fresh and saltwater applications. There is no doubt in my mind when the fish want a top water bait, these are the ones I throw. They cast a mile and have great action. I can not only get them to walk the dog, but also spit a little as it moves back and forth. Some of my best days of redfishing with a top water plug has come using this bait. Not only do I use this while I fish, but my customers use them with great ease and success. As a matter of fact, I have one that I have "retired" and have hanging up on my lure rack because it caught so many fish in one day. 26 redfish and 47 trout! I would recommend this to anyone from a novice to a professional. Can't beat the price or the durability. Two thumbs up Bass Pro!
