I saw them at Dicks in the close out bin for cheap:) where I dive we see lots of squid and sad to say they don't swim like the savage video

Next time you see em for cheep, let me know! I have a plan to fish these and expect them to be awesome! 
 

And I 100% agree, these “3D squid molded from a squid body...bullshi+ bullshi+ bullshi+” probably don’t swim like real squid, but I still  think there going do draw a bite! 
 

Think about sp minnows! They 100% don’t look like a bait fish swimming, but man do they get slammed! 
 

Wherever you dive, it sounds awesome!  I would have killed to see something besides lobsters and rocks when I was at it.

They look great, but, as has probably been mentioned before, the hooks appear to be iffy when used at the Canal. I could easily envision them straightening on even a moderate sized fish.

One night last year, i had a plan to jig buck tails and softplastics at a semi-difficult spot to get to. After an hour of no luck, bass began slurping squid in close on a shallow shelf next to the deep water I was working. I fortunately had one unweighted Slug-Go in the bag. The hits were close and ferocious with fish in to the low 20 lbs. The close quarters fights made quick work of my Slug-Go so I started ripping plastics off my jigs to put on the unweighted hook. Hurley rat tails, Ron z, Slug-Gos all produced even with the blunt heads from being cut for jig heads. 
 

Pencils, Polaris poppers, needlefish, darters, bucktails, and soft plastic jigs all have a place in the squid imitation tool box but for me the best imitation is a 6-12” unweighted (or slightly weighted) soft plastic. However, they are limited by their castability and shallow running depth.
