I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area...grew up fishing for stripers. Mudsuckers and bullheads were were the go-to baitfish. The Storm Wildeye Live Goby looks dead-on the mudsuckers I used to catch for my dad's bait-bucket. The swimming action is good. The jig itself is lighter than I expected and sinks VERY slow. Would give this lure a 5 out of 5 if it was offered in a larger size (maybe 1/2" to 1" longer...and about a 1/4 to 1/2 oz heavier).
