Fixter Needle in Montauk. Santa Cruz fish on a Pikie. My buddy Steve raised this fish on  a Cotton Cordell pencil popper but it would not commit. I cast out the pikie  right after that and the first nailed it . he watched the whole thing and ever since then he started buying Fixter pikies.  he’s a true believer now. Other Fish on Pikie while fishing with Mike in CA. pencil popper in Montauk. Atom 40 back bay Long Island.

This morning they only wanted Fixter metal lips. Landed 2 and dropped 2. Wouldn’t hit anything else and I tried @Winch softtail and @norcalkat pikie which both work phenomenally.  When I put back on the Fixter green or school bus they kept hitting it.  Not big but a fun couple hours.

That is interesting that the fish were so picky..... Those Winch & NorCalKat plugs typically produce really well....Maybe it was one of those rare days when color was real important.   I can remember one incident over 35 years ago when I was fishing close to the Golden Gate Bridge with Winch..... He had a yellow pikie & was hooking 5 or 6 fish to my one...I did not have a yellow pikie with me that day..... But from then forward I did & it's often paid off... Mike.

Yep your school bus pikie fooled the first one. My soft tail is also yellow and white so not sure. But I have been glad to have all of those lures in my bag at some time or another.
