25 posts in this topic

Here is what I use down south here in OCNJ

I am sure everyone has their preference but here is what have worked for me.


1. Polaris Popper red/white small/medium size

2. Yozuri Crystal minnow blue/black

3. Bomber Long A broken back red/white/black small and medium size

4. Yozuri Emperor Minnow red/white

5. Diamond Jigs 2oz.

6. Zara spook

7. Chugga Bug floating popper

8. Yozuri MagMinnow

9. Rebel Windcheater good for deeper holes black/silver

10. Bucktails


I know that conditions dictate heavier lures and bigger plugs but for everyday conditions these have worked for me. (Not lately)


What do you guys prefer? or must have in the bag?

It depends largely on the conditions and locations, but as a rule I carry the following:


Mega Baits: Kuro Kin and Midnight Shad


Bombers: Black and Purple, Schoolbus, Parrot, Chiken scratch and Black.


Mag Minnow and Mag Darter.


Mambo Minnows: Olive over white and chicken scratch.


Various bucktails and rubber bodies.

#58 is indeed the chicken scratch. I believe on the package it is usually marked as PYRG (pearl body, yellow back, red gills). It is often confused with the schoolbus, but is quite different.

I just added some new Bombers to the selection on this very day smile.gif


Now you can get the following 6" Bomber right here:



Chicken Scratch

Solid Black




Baby Striper


Black/Metallic Silver


I'm trying to find a supply of pearl and black-n-purple to nicely round out what we carry now smile.gif


I'll have the pictures of all of them up some time tonight - that is if my banged up elbow doesn't interfere with my photographing cwm24.gif


Also, I just recently added 7" SOL minnows to the extremely popular 5" SOL Minnows. What they are is the same bodies as a Mambo Minnow - except built properly with X-strong stainless steel split rings and 4X strong VMC Vanadium steel treble hooks - this way you can fish them as soon as you get them and not have to worry about changing out the fragile hardware they come with icon14.gif
