The SHOOFLY NEW for 2013 Ltd Edition! 

Perfect for North-east Saltwater top water fishing for BIG Stripers, Blues, Queenfish, any predatory fish!

And it's a battle tested Musky Lure!

2 oz Size
This lure at 4.5" is the perfect size to mimic bait found all over the world!

It is absolutely DEADLY at night!

VMC Permasteel 4X strong 3/0 Belly hook, 3/0 tail hook, 330 lb Krok stainless swivel, 3X strong 110 lb split rings.  100% Stainless Steel through wires and Stainless hardware where possible. Realistic holographic eyes for maximum effect!  It has a very nice swimming action when used with a loop knot and fished with 10-21 lb test lines. It has a VERY seductive wiggle/wakka wakka swimming action that just drives fish CRAZY! Put one on the end of your rod today and experience the fun of fishing real wood lures! Proper presentation of this swimmer lure is to cast then very slowly retrieve, stop occasionally,  and also occasionally twitch the rod tip to let the lip throw some water. These lures are designed to be surface swimmers, this is where you'll find you catch the most fish-in the top two feet of the water column.  They will wiggle back and forth and move the tail side to side. One of the keys is to be real erratic, and let it push a nice "V" wake on top of the water.  Twitch once and pause...then reel slowly etc. I've seen people try to fish these by ripping them through the water at lightning speed.  DON'T! Work them slow and it will produce for you! Fish key in on the V wake and WAKKA WAKKA WAKKA Gurgle/wiggle action that these produce and will explosively hit these lures!

I get asked a lot about what colors are best for surf fishing? 

Olive/White mimics a nice size mackerel in natural color and size.. Electric Squid is a great color to imitate frightened squid as they flee predator fish in the rips and rocks of the northeast. Pearl White is the best imitation of a normal squid. Yellow or Parrot at sunrise or cloudy days. Black/purple at night with the glow eyes is a killer if you softly light up the eyes in your headlamp. Same goes for the turquoise fire color-they are meant to be fished at night. On sunny days stick with a color that has a high definition color hue change on it....Olive/White, Blue/White, etc. Spend some time looking at the bait prevalent in your area and you will soon understand why certain colors can give you just that little bit extra advantage to entice a larger fish to take your lure. Don't be afraid to use such colors as Olive/White, Blue/White, or Yellow/White at night either!
