Their tuna lures were very popular 8 or 9 years ago and became part off the Riptide Tuna Series. I purchased a halfbeak surface darter and an SP heavy from an SOL member in June, 2011.  I will check my lures for the sandeel when I get to MA later this month.

The wounded peanut bunker was a killer as well 

This is the Ocean that I had on my plug rack. It’s not the sandeeel but I’m sure I have 1-2 kicking around. I have a tote totes filled with plug boxes I’ll check them later

If you put the sandeeel in my WTB thread I would be very thankful, killer plug but I can’t find em anymore and I’m not in town enough to search shops.

If I locate my sand eels I’ll post them on your bst thread. I’m glad I saw this thread. Got me thinking about ocean lures. They were great fish catchers. Simple but very castable and durable.

I used to get these at now defunct B&T shops (Fin & Fur and First Light Anglers).   The last I heard, and this was several years ago, the guy who made them needed to focus on his real job and was taking a break from building and selling.
