Strike King Redfish Magic Glass Minnow
If I only had a pick of one lure...
This would be it. I've been pairing this up with an 1/8oz jighead, and have been doing excellent. Great for reds, trout, and flounder.

Super Durable Soft Plastic
What struck me first about these soft plastics is that they can be stretched very far without breaking or tearing. When the fishing is "on" you don't want to stop to re-rig due to a torn off tail section. These Glass Minnows can withstand multiple attacks and heavy cover and remain intact.
They are also extremely soft and flexible so they shimmy and wiggle better than cheaper imitations. The body is thick and supple so fish feel like they are getting a full meal and will often strike a second time after a missed attempt.
My only complaint is that they do stain if left next to a rusty jig head (especially in the color white, but also chartreuse).
Other than that small setback they are an exceptional bait for all baitfish oriented saltwater species.

Real tough little baits. I caught ten trout and seven catfish with one bait and it's still on my rod waiting for xeat time.

Redfish Magic is also Speckled Trout Magic
For those who haven't tried it for Speckled Trout this bait is great. It is the best I have ever used for Trout. I primarily use the Electric Chicken color and it is hot on trout. I use it with a 1/4 oz jighead and just before I slide it on the jighead I put a small dab of super glue gel just if front of the hook portion of the jighead. This keeps the bait from pulling off when you get a strike. One of the best features of this bait is its elasticity. Other similar type plastic baits quite often lose their tails due to short strikes. This one lasts much longer and more than makes up for the fact that there are less of them in a package. Just cast and reel in at a medium speed, stop reeling occassionaly and let the bait drop to appear as a wounded bait fish and watch out!!! If there are Trout around you are going to get a strike.
