    Looks like a pencil jig!
    Most of my lures catch more fishermen than fish !!!

    Fishing is God's way of saying he loves us!

    Dugger...your so close... I'll give a hint...This lure is supposed to mimic a sand eel...It comes in two variations...Floating and a sinking...It's not a top water plug like a pencil popper, although sometimes people call this lure a pencil tin/jig/popper.

    Just wondering why u sounded shock to see redfish. I dont see why that cant live up here. Years ago used to catch them like crazy in the bays at NC.

    Looks like a nice little Red. Locally, someone caught a 24" triple tail (Black fish) 2 weeks after they ALWAYS disappear from our area. Change is coming...

    The lure looks like a what I've heard referred to as a Needle.

    Mariner...you are correct! It's a Needle Fish Lure...a very popular lure for surf casters, especially when sand eels are the primary bait in the surf. Stripers love needle fish lures. As for Mr. Lupo...Wikipedia might suggest that redfish have a range all along the east coast, it's just a fish that doesn't frequent the north east. So...yeah, that's why us in the north east are shocked...

    Something I noticed in the pic of the fish, it has two large greenish black blotches on it's side, one higher, one lower. Those are not normal. They may have a large jet black spot on their tail, or a group of them, and the spots are usually coin size on a decent fish. The black spots can be anywhere though, but they are clearly spots not big blotches.
