How To What's in Your Box?

My box is stuffed with Mr. Bunkers (Gags Grabbers), Live Target Menhaden, Spro Bucktails, Berkley 3 in curly tail minnows, and some Deadly Dicks...along with whole bunch of other stuff...but these work well for Stripers and Blues.

I have an eclectic collection of lures. But my favorites at this time are my Bomber Cranks, Kyoban Spinner and Buzz, and my Strike King Sexy Frog. And although they aren't "lures", I can't go without mentioning my favorite bait, the Strike King Game Hawgs!!!

Great selection! I've been a fan of both the Bomber Long A and Chug Bug for a long time. That Chug Bug you show looks as though it has been battle tested and proven worthy!

It's amazing how the big jerkbaits have come in vogue when baits like the Bomber Long A and Smithwick Rouge were there long before it was "cool" to throw a jerkbait. There's so much action you can get out of one of these - or none at all depending upon conditions.

One more that you mention is the jig. I've got a supply of large (3/4 oz.) what I would call Striper jigs. Sometimes they get a Curl Tail Grub while other times they'll just get a straight tail fashioned from a Zoom Finesse Worm or Trick Worm; usually in bright white (Refrigerator White). I just want to give them a chance to ambush the bait. Honestly I don't do a great deal of InShore but you are making me think long and hard how I can perhaps do a little more. Thanks, Jerry A

We use the Gulp 4" Swimming Mullet in chartreuse or white for flounder...killer.

We just jump on the trolling motor and start slinging hardware...all the stuff in a bass bos works in the marsh!

Yes! Spro bucktail tipped with a 3in or 4in Gulp curly tail mullet/grub..is KILLER for Fluke...As I'm writing this, I can't wait for Fluke season to open...:D

"Go big or go home Lures and if they dont work just a bunch of different plastics, mostly grubs."
