  1. I have definitely put some thought into it. The potential issue is that I will be there for two weeks right at the beginning of the rainy season, maybe even a bit before. I will definitely check it out though.
  2. Do you have colors that you prefer?
  3. I've been looking at them. They look like they could do the job.
  4. I really like the stuff Stephen Lasen puts out. I have definitely looked at his lures and will probably go that way on a couple, but I was just hoping for, how do you say, a more cost effective alternative.
  5. I've looked at the Robert's Ranger and it may become the defacto stand-in, since you can actually get them. Spoffords seem as scarce, if not more so, as the Line Stretcher.
  6. I am currently booking a trip to Huatulco, Oaxaca, MX, and I am finding precious little information about what to expect as far as surf fishing is concerned. Does anyone have first hand knowledge of the area or know a trove of knowledge that I might have missed. I will be there late May/early June for about two weeks and I will be devoting some serious time to beach fishing. What I have gleaned so far is that the surf can be gnarly but should be more manageable further south. There should be a number of fish species available including the potential for rooster, snook, snapper and other cookable species. Do you all know of a more thorough list for that time of year? Or have specific location and strategy/tackle suggestions? I plan on getting some local knowledge if I can but I'd like to be somewhat prepared. Thank you for your time.
  7. It seems like the Line Stretcher is a bit blockier. They really move some water as you rip them across the surface, making a big commotion.
  8. Rooster is definitely a large part of their repertoire.
  9. Man, I just had that thought.
  10. I think there is just a shortage because Line Stretcher went out of business, to the best of my knowledge.

  12. A cursory search of the B-T-S forums shows that there are a bunch of folks trying to buy Line Stretcher Surface Tension plugs but not a ton selling them. So my question is this, is there something else out there that could be considered a relatively close equivalent to them? I know that there is nothing identical but is there a stand-in that has been identified? Thank you in advance.
  13. It is worth the 9 seconds it took to type it.
