I bought my first 3-pack during the post-spawn this summer. I have gone through about 5 packs so far. The realistic look is so incredible. I get very aggressive strikes from largemouth bass when using a slow retrieve with 20-lb test.

This lure is awesome!
every pond or lake I've used it in I've caught bass, without exception!
I've used both the 2inch and 3inch version, and both just flat out catch fish.
The key to this lure however, is you must swim it in front of the bass, to get their attention. And it helps to use an erratic retrieve, with zig-zags to the left and right, or slight pauses. The key is to give it as life-like a presentation as you can. If you just crank it in, you'll still catch fish, but the bites will be slow.
Another retrieve worth trying, is to "Yo-yo" the lure by jerking it up, then letting it flutter slowly back down, like a dying fish.
The only real draw back to this lure, is that because it's very soft especially the tail, if you're catching fish with it, you'll go through a lot of these lures. The tails don't hold up to a lot abuse, and after 3 or 4 catches, they droop, and don't swim correctly. But it's worth it, if you're catching fish!

I have used this same lure several different times and still have caught nothing. This bait doesn't really have a "zing" to it. When i use it, all it does is swim like a regular fish. I guess it doesn't work because big bass see the same fish swimming around the lake all day and this has no uniqueness that stands out to the fish.
