LOST BUT NOW FOUND
TWENTY-FOUR YEARS AGO MY FAMILY WENT TO YELLOWSTONE AND PICKUP A COUPLE OF THESE LURES. THEY WERE BIG AND UGLY. WHEN MY FATHER FIRST GAVE THEM TO US I THOUGHT IT WAS THE LOCALS PLAYING A JOKE ON US. AFTER FISHING WITH THESE LURES AND CAUGHTING CUTTHROATS ALL DAY LONG. I BECAME A BELIEVER. WHEN GOT BACK HOME COULD NOT FIND THIS LURE AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT I HAVE FOUND THEM AGAIN. FIRST THING I DID WAS EMAIL MY FATHER THAT I HAD FOUND THEM.

What can I say, these things catch fish. The best part about these lures is their versatility. I use them for trout, bass, even walleye. I've had success with them in rivers and lakes. In my experience they don't work as well in small streams, but then again, what spinner does. The only downside to these is they are a little pricey for a spinner. That being said, I believe they are worth the money.

I first used this in Yellowstone. Took it to NJ and dropped it into Delaware Bay in the Maurice River Cove. Had weakfish as soon as it hit the bottom. That was many years ago but it will take fluke and bluefish as well. Have to be careful with that little treble hook. A larger hook may kill the action though. It has even taken oyster crackers and blowfish!

A friend told me about this lure. So I picked up a couple at bass pro in so-cal. I have had good luck with it for trout, and have cought two sturgeons one about 2lbs and one 3/4lb. I have also hooked into one that i could not turn. It kept going like a slow moving train. I have not tried for sturgeon, but I might have to get some heaver tackle now.
