MirrOlure Lil John Twitch Baits
Great plastic bait
I love these lil John baits, I don't know what it is about them but they've showed over and over again the ability to match and often exceed the productivity of other popular soft plastics. More durable than Gulp, and offering a variety you don't get from DOA.
I like the Gold Bream/Rootbeer color for night/dusk fishing, and Watermelon Red/Glow for day fishing. Like most soft plastics the most affective retrieve seems to be a slow on the bottom with an occasional bump.

Lil John for Trout and Redfish
I started using these baits a year ago in the lower Pamlico River and Sound. I find them effective and tough. The wide variety of colors can be used to address the varied water conditions we experience. I think the embedded sparkles make a big difference. The baits are tough which is important as they hold up to needlefish and pinfish which are prevalent. A great value for inshore fishing.

they come bent out of shape
These can be very good baits, but the problem is only one or two out a package is usable. This bait must be straight to work properly and most arrive bent out of shape...and I have tried dozens of packages. They also create very bad line twist...lots of braid knots. So, I no longer use them. Simply too much of a hassle to deal with : (

Good to have in tackle box!
I found the Lil John good but not as excellent as another scent bait that is very popular now. However, the Lil John does stay on the jig head quite well and there is more in a package at a much more reasonable price. Good to have these in your tackle box. I have caught trout on them, no Reds as yet.
