This is what I've been using the most lately since the mullet are in full force.

Chris, it looks like your paddle tail is rigged upside down. Ive seen alot of guys prefer it that way and i doubt the fish care.

It usually doesn't produce trout in numbers but I've caught some really nice ones on it. I generally target flounder and reds when I'm in the salt and it does a magnificent job on both of those. I've caught fish from Charleston, SC to the Keys and from the Keys all the way to the marshes of Texas with a spinnerbait like this. Doesn't seem to matter where your at or the time of year it will catch fish regardless! The Avocado/Red like in the pic is a standard go to color although I do have few tricks that I use to put a few more fish in the boat when times get tough!

In case you haven’t noticed, there really are some enormous and enormously fragile egos in fishing. I can tell you that having a big ego is like owning one of those huge dogs that crap on the floor and eat the couch if they don’t get constant attention.

John and IS, I find on in my collection and post a pic. John I remember posting back and forth with Ken. He said he put his kids through college on that minnow. I used to do real well on bass with them. Rigging of the hook and action were very good. I remember buying a kit of them at BJ's and I ended up using them all up on fish.

Here ya go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7QwteLR4fs heck after watching that video, I think I'm going to order me up another box. Capt, Ken, you are going to owe me some kick bak if sales pick up soon!

Did you change the original treble on it to a larger size? I have a couple of those, but never used them.

Nope it's the smaller size one too, I like the big ones better but the bluefish tore up my last one.

Storm Wildeye paddletail - Golden Mullet. I've caught reds, trout, and flounder throughout the year, regardless of season, with these. The same in the Bunker color/pattern works almost as well, but I've had better luck with the Golden Mullet. The eyes are actually part of the weight, too (rather than just being decals or paint). They're a little heavy for my preferences at 1/4 oz (I prefer 1/8th), especially for fishing super-soft bottom Guana Lake, but it's hard to beat their convenience and durability.

interesting idea, but how about maybe at one of the next outtings, we all bring our "one lure". If not our lucky one, a new extra one. Do a name draw maybe based on age or seniority, and each person who draws a name, gets that person's "one lure". See how each others "one lure" holds up. There seem to be some pretty good suggestions out there for lures. I have a brand new (opened), unused, Mirrodine in mardi gras trout. Just an idea for maybe a future get together. Ive missed the last couple due to military duty, but would eventually like to attend one.
