Default WHAT'S THIS LURE/WHERE CAN I GET IT?

I was watching a fishing show yesterday, ( what else is there to do), and these guys were using a soft plastic bait for reds and trout in FL. It was super stretchy, nearly indestructable, and you had to glue it to the jig head...they had caught 20 fish on the same lure, had great action and stayed on the jighead??? any ideas??? Heading to Venice La tomorrow to fish, fish, fish....thanks y'all...Mick

Walmart carries them. Can't remember the brand. I liked them ok , didn't stay up close to jig head , probably needed glue.

Lots of the guys on the tournament shows have been using D.O. A plastics recently. They fit your discription.

I agree. Strike King was the plastic. Shaw Grigsby cracks me up because he gets so excited whenever he catches a fish. Then again, so do I. But that's the way it should be, otherwise, why bother?

i saw a show with shaw grigsby (i think that's his name) fishing sometime last week, and he was showing a rubber bait that was glued to a jig head. i believe that it was a strike king lure, because his shirt said strike king, and he kept mentioning that name over and over (i guess they're his main sponsor).

I just ordered a tray of 3 inch shrmp from DOA and you are right they are doing well in Fla. with them.

I am also going to try them for weakfish and fluke ( ona Teaser hook) here on Long Island.

You can also subsitute for the colors you want for 2 bucks more. Considering what the cost in Wall Mart for a small package this is a good deal.

Here is the link for DOA:

I would check out the rest of there site also
