Fish Caught: Bass, LargemouthI tested the Fan Tail Shrimp on a number of small natural lakes in my area, I fished them as I would a jig & pig mostly on the bottom in weedbeds in 6-10 ft of water. I caught a largemouth bass on each and every lake that I tried. The largest was 19 1/2 inches and about 4 lbs. So in my opinion, for a saltwater lure to work that well this far north, you must be doing something very right. I'd like to add that I'm a long time fan and customer since the early 1970's. Your Sassy Shad, pearl w/black back in all sizes has been a main producer for a lot of years for me. Thank you for many fish dinners.
Lure: 1¼" Nymph

Fish Caught: RedfishIt 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!
