Your new go-to topwater plug
I have a box of Rebel Jumpin' Minnows with upgraded hooks that I wish that I could push into a breeze. Well, this is that plug.

It feels great in the box and exceeds expectations when cast. I find it to be among the best casting 1 oz topwaters around, and I use it for striped bass in the NJ saltmarsh, bluefish and striped bass in Montauk, and look forward to catching a dolphin on it this summer around a lobster pot.

Buy one today and thank me tomorrow.
ProsWeight to wind resistance ratio (casts like a dream) Hooks (phenomenal) Paint It's easy to walk the dog with this plug
ConsMore than $10. If you can't walk the dog and and you keep your rod tip high, this plug fishes like a boogie board.

Roosterfish love these!
One of my favorite lures for fishing from shore in Baja. I really like the mullet color. Super easy to use, and great "walk the dog" action.

Great Hydro
I love this lure in the bone color and can skip it on top of the water surface, even landed an albie using it, but more or less it is a very versatile lure

What’s the difference between the hydro pencils vs the 3dbs pencils
1 Answer
The 3DB series of Yo Zuri lures are much more light reflective and emit a higher amount of flash than the hydro pencil would.
