Why does it work so well...
April 27, 2015
I have the chrome and blue back and this thing kills spanish mackerel and ribbonfish. Not sure why it works so well but I'm not complaining. I did coat it in 2 ton epoxy to preserve the finish, and it seems to work!
ProsTried and true lure Works great salt and freshwater
ConsKeep the hooks dry or they'll rust Hooks and rings aren't super tough, so take care
