OP, I was out Sunday and the bright blue skies and high pressure had the fish really not terribly interested. I caught a few but I bet I put baits in front of hundreds of fish that either swirled on it or just didn't eat.

Thanks, I usually am using live or dead bait when fishing. Iíll have to give these a try.
