    I had to retire this swimbait today. It’s been on the same jighead since late 2017, catching well over 100 pike, and having plenty more short strike the tail. It’s far from the only color or style I use, but this one has been my firetiger color in use for close to two years. I’ve had it rigged upright, and then through both sides as the hook exit hole tears. The head finally got so torn up that it would only tail kick but not roll side to side. The picture make it look better than it really is, but I bet if I put some mendit on it, I can get another 50 fish out of it.

    Taking it off the jighead after fish number 4 this morning made me think about Johnny Cash’s Ragged Old Flag.

    Why not just answer a simple ******* ?.... Really... That's a "spacebook" fishing forum answer. Maybe you need to join those forums and leave here ?? Doesn't seem like you've made many friends. Glad I've made over a half dozen or more over the years I can call friends. Most I know think you're arrogant half the time and a smart ass !! Reason I don't do "spacebook" last thing I'll say-respond too you actually, that's it...

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

    I’ll keep using my free demo version of reefmaster and you ac keep using your below market price crawlers. Everybody uses something for an edge. Blow off steam at me if you want to, but I don't hold any animosity towards you or AJ.

    All the guy wanted to know is a size of a bait and look how you answer him ! That’s real sportsman like , there is plenty of fish that telling him it’s 4” he would of hurt your catch . But you go ahead and act like that and hope you never want honest advice .

    I have my reasons, and it’s probably it what you think they are.
