Nice Action... lousy Hooks...

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I use these lures for Striper and Walleye fishing here in Maryland. They work great for shore casting, first time using them hooked and landed 3 Walleye and 1 very large striper... the Striper straightened the hooks out on the lure. The next day went back out and lost 2 big Stripers, same thing the cheap hooks straightened out. I have hung new hooks using VMC, 4 XT,in PERMASTEEL... no more troubles next trip out landed a 20 lb. Striper! The lure bodies have the right action and colors but the hooks are really Cheesy. You will be disappointed on a big fish if you don't change out the hooks.

Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish

Cons: Fish Get Away

Best Uses: Shore Casting

I just returned from Oak Island Lodge on Lake Nippising in Ontario- The problem we found was that most stick baits ran too deep and did not have the action. the pike smashed (7 in number) this lure when troling quickly. action was great biggest fish was 31 inches. Ran out of time. love this lure. Tom

Pros: Shallow-escaped the weeds, Irresistible to Fish, Looks Realistic

Cons: Pike bite the end off, Limited Use, Poor Construction

Best Uses: Weeds just under surface, Trolling, Fresh Water

What a great Lure

Roseville, MI

About Me:
Avid Fisher
This is a great lure. The only problem I had was finding them. Fish USA was the only place that I could find. Me and my fishing partner, of 20 years, go to Armstrong, Canada and always used Rapala lure with great sucsess, but the Matzuo, (No. MPMS) has been added as an equal. We fish by trolling only. Put it behind the boat about 12-20ft and wait for the strike. We catch Walleye, Pike, and Lakers on on both Lures. I hope they never stop making them.

Pros: Easy To Store, Irresistible to Fish, Looks Realistic, Fish Don't Escape, Easy To Handle, Good For Variety Of Fish

Cons: none

Best Uses: Trolling
