Luck-E-Strike RC STX Jerkbait
Great Jerk Bait
In my opinion, the greatest jerkbait ever made is the Megabass Vision 110. These LuckE Strike RC's are the exact same bait at 1/3 of the price.
Buy a few, cast them out in 45 - 55 degree water, pause them for as long as you can stand it, then rip and pause, then twitch and pause, then rip and pause. Hold on the to the rod tight because on one of those twitches or rips, the rod is going to be already loading up.
Simply a great bait at a great price!!

Can't beat the price
Like everyone else said, change the split rings.
Other than that, this lure has the exact same action as megabass, maybe less rattle noise.
It catches fish, can't complain

Great bait for the price
I'm giving this 5 stars based on price range compared to quality. It might not be "as great" as the 110 but the few I purchased were suspending perfectly out of the box in 39-45 degree water, when the water raised up a little higher they floated very slowly to the surface. It casts like an absolute bullet and I have caught a good number of fish in the few short weeks I've had them. Only problem I find is the hooks are very weak, 6 of 9 points are bent on one of these baits that has caught about 10 fish all under 1.5lb. I didn't take stars off for this because it is a very affordable bait and I am used to replacing stock hooks for better ones.

Great way to start
I got one of these over the winter and after a very weird spring up here in NE things have finally leveled off as far as temps go. Well I took this bait in the gold color out to a clear grass and rock natural pond. Water temps from 46-49 degrees. Well this think catches fish. I had only used Husky jerks before this. I caught over 12 fish on this lure. The biggest being a nice 5lbs9oz Bass. My only complaint was the weak hooks. Twice they bent out and the second time was on the big fish. Actually 2 hooks on one treble and 1 on another bent out on the big fish. I noticed today that one treble lost a hook as well. So though the hooks are super sharp I recommend replacing them asap with better quality hooks. The hardware so far has been no problem for me.
