.... to dress up from the other side of the world, but they are niiiiiice.
These things are like having mirrors inside them. Unreal. The price was unreal cheap too. 3 weeks to the day to get them here.
This past summer we found a vast inside corner with water depths about 3 -6 feet and the bottom covered in some sort of non-emergent weeds. We thought bass but it was the pike that got our attention. We first started getting these toothy critters using weighted hooks and 4" Rippers but the pike told us they wanted a floating stick in about 7 inches in length just wiggled across the surface. The Raps we were using barely went into the water on the retrieve and were instant targets but those Balsa toys don't stand up to pike very well so we went to some Storm sticks and they did even better. For weed management we took the tail and last belly hooks off the lures leaving only the most forward treble and we still had hook-ups consistently. Some of these Mississippi River pike were in the 44" class and were not shy about snipping the 40 pound braid we used so we went with titanium leaders but those too created their own issues. So after about $80.00 worth of stick baits were either totaled or swam away it was apparent that I needed to do some painting and that's when I found a deal on these bodies. 10 of them. $6.00 and they were all gone at the end of my order. Now I have part of my winter task list ahead of me and I am looking forward to it since I'll be using Do-It's new line of air brush paints...../which, incidentally, are some super nice paints.
