Best Snook lure
March 25, 2020
BY FAR THE BEST SNOOK LURE ON THE MARKET. Snook in florida absolutely love this lure especially in the gold color. I have caught nearly a dozen snook on this lure on my past trip to florida alone. I also know that this is a necessity on a lot of the Florida inshore charter boats, because it flat out works. The wide walking action of this lure and the ability to change the retrieve makes this lure awesome. The trebles are also very strong to handle those 40+ inch fish.
ProsAction Color terminal tackle castabilty
ConsThe color can start to come off after a lot of fish.

Your new go-to topwater plug
June 28, 2018
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.

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

Whatâ€â"¢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.
