Product:Exude® D.A.R.T.
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:Received a package of Golden Bream Dart in the Captains Bag at the Fish Skinz Tournament. Rough day on the water, winds were in the 20 plus range. Waded a shoreline working another brand jerk bait, a couple of hits, no hook ups. Back into the boat to drift the flat. Missed a nice Red on top water plug. Poled back and out. Saw an area of nervous water. The Dart was the closest bait at hand. Quick rig and cast. Slight bump and an instant hookup. Wound up being a 2.75 inch, 6 pound 8 oz Red. Fish was good enough for 9th place. over 200 anglers in the event.

Testimonial:The Mister Twister Exude Shrimp and Mister Twister Fantail Shrimp are two of the finest redfishg baits on the market today. Sight casting, blind jigging, or popin corking these baits flat out CATCHEM UP!
As a professional refish angler I use whatever will give me a competitive advantage and these baits do just that!
Even finicky fish that have been getting pounded on can't resist and Mister Twister Exude bait. These baits played a crucial role in a Repeat of the Louisiana Salt Water Series Team of the Year 2012 and 2010. Finished top 5 in IFA series and Ht Redfish Cup. The results say it all! Great baits thank you Mister Twister for your exceptional quality and consistent results!

Product:Exude® RT Slug
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:For the past two years this has been hands down the best soft plastic lure. I now refuse to use any other lure when I'm on the hunt for Reds. Just in the last 2 months alone I've caught over 30 on the Mister Twister Exude RT Slug Baby Bass color. Its almost unfair for the fish, they cant resist it.

It was a key role player in My partner and I winning the Ht Series Redfish cup 2012 Chalemette event.

Testimonial:Fish go crazy! For the slug... snook, reds, trout and tarpon cant resist it I recommend using a 5/0 hook in funky chicken and gently jerking it

Product:Exude® D.A.R.T.
Fish Caught:Redfish - Trout, Sea/Speckled
Testimonial:This is my #1 lure to use. We fish the Pro Redfish circuits and this bait has always proven to be the most productive and consistant lure I have ever used. When I am guiding, I have my clients use this lure because I know it will catch fish. I use these on an 1/8 oz jig head and vary retrieves. When the fish are eating sand eels, this bait is HOT!

Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:We fish the Professional Redfish tours and these lures have proven themselves time and time again. Whether they are fished with a jighead 1/16 to 1/8 oz or rigged weedless with a flutterhook, the action and fish attraction will get the attention and draw strikes from even the most finicky fish.

Testimonial:I'd have to admit the Exude D.A.R.T natural shrimp has by far outfished every lure in my tackle box, especially when Im targeting the infamous Redfish in the shallows"

Ray Stansberry

Location:Titusville, Florida
Product:Exude® Fan Tail Shrimp
Fish Caught:Redfish - Trout, Sea/Speckled - Snook
Testimonial:I have been on the EXUDE pro staff since 2000 and never before have I had a soft plastic bait that is so versatile in the many ways it can be used. It can be rigged weed-less, on a jighead, with or without a rattle, back-weighted for a very slow, fluttering fall. A great search bait or a superior soft plastic when you can see the fish.

I predominately sight-fish my primary prey,...Redfish. The Fantail Shrimp has fooled some many fish, it is now my # 1 "go-to" soft plastic!

Product:Exude® RT Slug
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:I use the RT Slug on the flats and catch reds, trout, and snook. The silktruese color catches snook in the mangroves, and the new penny color rigged on a 1/16 oz flutter hook slays big reds on the flats. It is an amazing lure, and has excellent action fished slow or fast.

Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:Great Lure!!! The Saltwater RT Slug in both opening day and golden bream are excellent for finicky schooled up redfish during the winter. Hooked weedless on a swimbait hook or with a light jig head, the RT Slug worked slow catches them every time. It's our go to bait's in tournaments. We fished them from Alabama to Titusville, everywhere there's redfish they'll eat Exude.

Product:Exude® Cajun Crab
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial: I am a kayak angler and soft plastic user on Florida's Space Coast.
About two years ago I picked up a pack of your plastic crabs in the LA Crab color and headed for the Mosquito Lagoon for a day of redfishing. The day started off ok, I was able to find a few fish but had a hard time getting them to eat anything I would put in front of them.. As I was moving down a flat I found lots of tailing reds everywhere, so I pulled out the crabs and rigged one weedless, made a good cast to a tailing fish and wouldn't you know it "FISH ON" my line comes tight and for the first time that day I have a good fish on . After about a four or five minute battle I have the redfish along side my kayak and what a nice fish at 36" and a little bonus of ten spots. A few minutes later I am back on the fish and I get another, then another I end the day having caught a dozen fish all slot and upper size fish. Ever since that day I keep a few bags of crabs in my tackle bag and It is still one of my "go too" baits of choice....
Thanks for making some of the worlds finest soft plastic baits and saving my day,
Charles "Chuck" Levi Jr.

Testimonial:The Exude Dart is our Redfish Tournament teams "Go-To" bait. The dart can be worked either weedless or on a weighted jighead and worked in various retrieve patterns. This bait has produced when other bait (even stink baits) have failed. We have won over $100,000.00 using this bait in only two seasons. Thanks Exude for the "Dart".

Testimonial:The Mister Twister RT Slug is great. It has alot of action I was barely twiching it and then a big 27 inch, 11 pound red took my bait. It was the biggest red I ever landed.

Riddler

Location:Withlacoochee River, Florida
Product:FAT Tube
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:I use this bait when water temperatures drop and redfish are looking for a small, easy meal. Rig it on a light jighead and slowly drag and/or hop the lure around oyster bars and grasslines during the colder months when the redfish are more lethargic. Tubes are overlooked when it come to redfish, but this Exude Fat Tube will catch you fish.

Captain Mark Wright

Location:Indian River Lagoon, Titusville, Florida
Product:Exude® Fan Tail Shrimp
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:I recieved a few samples of the new Fan Tail from the Home Office to field test and, boy, was I impressed!

My first cast at a pod of finger mullet and an unidentified fish stripped the Fan Tail from my hook. I quickly re-baited another Golden Bream FT Shrimp on the 3/0 keeper hook and waited patiently for the school of reds to work their way into range....my second cast was perfectly placed on the lead fish, one twitch...Bam, fish on! 29 inches and nearly 9 pounds. 8-25-07

I see a bright future ahead for this bait! Capt. Mark Wright

Testimonial:I fish the Oberto Redfish Cup tournaments; we had a tournament this weekend in St Augustine FL. I am friends with Bob Morris out of Jacksonville FL. You had sent him a new product he called the Fan Tail Shrimp. On day one we had thrown everything in the boat at tailing redfish with only catching 1 fish out of 30. We then watched Bob Morris pull in make 2 casts and catch 2 fish. I spoke with Bob Morris at the dock on morning of Day 2, he old me he had just received a new bait in mail form you and that was what he was using. He gave me few to try. We went 7 for 8 with the new Fan Tail Shrimp on day 2. This placed us 7th in the tournament, somewhere between 5th and 7th overall for the year, and put us in the Championship. I do not believe we could have done this without Bobís help and the new product. Our championship is September 22nd, is there any way we can get this new product before the tournament.



Thanks

Product:Exude® Fan Tail Shrimp
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:It was very ironic to receive a fan tail shrimp sample from you today. The irony is that I just fished the final Redfish Cup event with my partner in St Augustine over the holiday weekend, we were in a good shape before the tourney to qualify for the championship, but needed a solid finish. We had a marginal day one, and hung about 9lbs on the scale. We had flood tides during the tourney, and were on a good amount of fish tailing in the grass, but struggled to get allot of bites, on numerous presentations. On day 2 in the morning, I ran into a friend of mine, Bob Morris, who was fishing in the same general area, but he was using the fan tail shrimp with the rattles and was having some pretty good success with the bait, he hooked us up with a few baits that he had extra for that day. Once the tide got up, we headed to the same area that we had some success the day before, but allot of refusals as well. With your bait it was a completely different ball game, we ended up culling through quite a few fish, and had a great limit for the day. We ended up finishing 7th for the event, and around 6th or 7th in the standings for the eastern division. We are headed to the Championship!! The shrimp looks great and has excellent action. I can't wait to see it in Golden Bream. I owe Bob a bunch!


Thanks.

Testimonial:Let me start by saying WOW! I have been rigging creature baits with rattles for pitching docks and targeting tailing redfish for the last 3 years! This new bait is awesome! I have been prefishing for the Oh Boy! Oberto! Redfish Cup Championship in Pensacola and this bait has been outfishing every other shrimp when pitching docks. It is my hypothesis that the small size (2 ½ inch) and the rattles really set it apart. I am fishing the Championship on 9/21 and 9/22 and will definitely be fishing this product for this event.

Testimonial:I have been fishing Exude Shrimp for about four years now, and the product doesn't stop amazing me. Last week while fishing the Measles color as well as Natural Shrimp, I bagged my first Florida Backcountry Slam! Thats right, Snook, Redfish, Seatrout and Flounder all in one day! We also caught Bluefish, Spanish Mackeral, Ladyfish and a HUGE Sheepshead! Thats right 8 species all on the same bait! This was done in Sebastion, FL on an incoming tide.

Testimonial:Best soft plastic bait I have in my box. Redfish, Trout, SNOOK and Flounder, I have caught them all. I like the natural Mister Twister Saltwater Shrimp the best and I prefer it over live bait anytime.

Mike Mills

Product:Saltwater Jigheads
Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:This is the most weedless saltwater jig that I have ever used. Hooks fish very well too, most of the fish, trout or redfish that I catch using this jig head are hooked very solidly.
Sheds saltwater grasses like crazy and hooks fish too.

Exude® Fan Tail Shrimp

"I recently ordered few packs of the Exude® Fan Tail Shrimp… Two weeks later my partner and I took home a first place finish at the Louisiana Saltwater Series Redfish Tournament. What an incredible lure, its compact, which allows the fish to inhale it easily, and those little legs really sell it to a weary redfish."
