    Precisely! Everyone makes mistakes (in his case egregious blatant acts, many times and multiple counts). But to read his responses to people on social media shows a lack of remorse and extreme arrogance.

    Perhaps, you all should let the managment at your favorite shops know and then boycott until there is change.

    Didn't know anything about the history of the creator. I went online recently to try and get a few because of all the buzz. Saw the price and just couldn't justify a soft plastic bait costing $10 a piece. Passed.

    It looks like a bigger version of a gettiz it before they cut the little tentacles. It looks like it has no real action at all. They smell really funky so I'm thinking there's some kind of attractant in it. We were fishing those seabass and threw everything,squid,sardines,chovies and nada,bupkis nothing. All 10 we got were on that overpriced little turd. Go figure. Maybe they're made out of melted down gulp or something.
    The fish were jugged with red crab, but other red plastic wasn't working either.
    All I know is on that day those fish ate that thing and nothing else we had.
    That guy could be the biggest piece of shit on earth and he's getting over like no other getting $14 for 2 of those things which seems to be the case. So be it. I got 2 more because the one I have is torn up and the hook is bent.
    I'll save my moral outrage, no shortage of pieces of shit getting over on us on a daily basis, why start now.
    Just my opinion, I could be and frequently am wrong

    Won the Mission Bay Battle of the bays with these baits. As usuall all the keyboard cowboys whom have never ridden a horse or caught a fish much less won any tournaments have this forum to feel like thier opinion matters to someone! The wiser old guys who do fish and win tournaments well we know to use what catches, HOOKUP BAITS. Have only won as in first place this year 4 tournaments and one second place, so maybe just maybe I know to what I speak. And look at that......not one bad word, must be why people value my opinion! Here is a thought...be positive and help others and maybe just maybe other people will like and possibly respect you! Try it-you’ll like it!

    Fishhead your point is valid. I can only say please excuse my rant. I should be a smarter old fish and not take the bait, I do tend to get a lil punchy when anyone attacks someone whom I consider a very good friend. What I will say is if someone makes it into my inner circle of friends, no matter what the need....I am there for them without question. Here is a life lesson I learned early, never judge anyone or anything, leave that up to the man above. Forgive quickly, help where you can and Life really gets easy. Thanks fishead for pointing that out.

    Sounds like no one is questioning if they get bit, but rather not happy with the owner acting as if he is somehow a victim because he was convicted of poaching for what seems like a pretty blatant series of acts.

    Way over priced , the owner was a dick to me at Fred hall I was asking How to use his lure after buying a pack. He seemed annoyed that I was asking . So it was first and last. I hear some one is making similar ones WITH the option of replaceable skirts.

    Then tell your friend to be a bit more humble and go read some of his posts online. If he was my friend I would tell him to stfu and fall on his sword and slap the shit out of him for taking his son poaching .you have seen many of the posts on here. He doesn't come off as he is sorry to many of us. His social media posts just ads to the fire he started and can't blame anyone else but himself. A real friend says the things that are hard to say because they are a real friend

    The hook eyelets are too small on the smaller models, impossible to get a dropper loop through. And now that I know the owner is a poacher, and taking game from my backyard I can't support him. Two packs I have will be my last.

    Date: October 20, 2010
    Investigation Was a Joint Effort with the California Department of Fish and Game

    In August of 2008, California Fish and Game Wardens received an anonymous report via CalTip about suspected poaching activity in the Virginia Canyon area of Yosemite National Park. Based on this tip, the National Park Service (NPS) and the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) opened a joint investigation. As the investigation progressed, Chad Gierlich, his 14-year old son, his brother Chris Gierlich, and Kyle Narasky were identified as suspects.

    "Protection of our park's resources remains our first priority. It is our duty as stewards of the National Park Service to protect our natural resources for all Americans, and this includes our wildlife," said Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher. "The National Park Service will prosecute all poachers to the furthest extent possible. I would like to thank the California Department of Fish and Game and Warden Chad Elliott, specifically, for their invaluable assistance."

    “With dogged determination, Warden Elliott and National Park Service Rangers brought California’s most determined poachers to justice,” said Assistant Chief John Baker, of DFG’s Fresno office.

    On August 28th, 2008, a Warden and a Yosemite National Park Ranger were on a stake-out at Yosemite’s boundary at Summit Lake. During this stake-out, the four suspects were stopped at 5:30 a.m. as they were sneaking out of the park. The Gierlich's and Narasky claimed they were on a week-long backpacking trip, yet they did not have the appropriate equipment. Due to the conversation with the suspects, Rangers and Wardens later returned to the area several times to search for evidence of poaching.

    On September 13th, 2008, a Fish and Game Warden and a Yosemite Park Ranger, aided by the Warden's search dog, located multiple evidence items positively linking the Gierlich's and Narasky to the original CalTip report. These items included: the Gierlich's and Narasky's hunting licenses and deer tags, bows and arrows, digital memory cards, GPS units, backpacks, bags of rotten deer meat, three sets of deer antlers and a kill site. All of these items were located inside of Yosemite National Park, an area of exclusive federal jurisdiction.

    A federal search warrant was executed on the electronic media found in the field. The evidence secured as a result of this search warrant led to the execution of a federal search warrant of Chad Gierlich's residence on January 11th, 2009. This search warrant was executed by NPS Special Agents and Rangers and Wardens of the California Department of Fish and Game. More evidence was seized during the execution of this search warrant including computers and the heads of two deer killed in Yosemite National Park in 2005 and 2007. Over the years, the Gierlichs had killed five trophy deer in Yosemite National Park.

    Wardens of the California Department of Fish and Game initiated additional investigations on Chad Gierlich based on evidence seized off of the Gierlich's computers and GPS units that suggested multiple other poaching offenses including: four deer between Lake Perris State Park and Chino Hills State Park, and a deer and a javelina in Arizona in 2009. On Oct. 14, 2009, while under investigation for hunting within Yosemite’s boundaries, Chad Gierlich was cited for hunting with his son within the boundaries of Lake Perris State Park. Additionally, during the summer of 2010, he was cited twice by the California Department of Fish and Game for two independent fishing and boating violations. Additionally, Chad Gierlich was falsely reporting his poached deer to the California Bowmen Hunter's Association as legitimate kills and had several of his poached deer listed as records.

    On September 1, 2009, Narasky was charged with six counts in Federal Court. Chad and Chris Gierlich were both charged with 17 counts in Federal Court.

    Mono County charged Chad Gierlich with felony conspiracy, unlawful taking of a deer, failure to show game and device used to take game, waste of game, and contribution to the delinquency of a minor. Chris was charged with felony conspiracy, unlawful taking of a deer, failure to show game and device used to take game, and waste of game. Narasky was charged with felony conspiracy, unlawful taking of a deer, and failure to show game and device used to take game.

    On May 25th, 2010, Narasky pled guilty to hunting in Yosemite National Park and possession of a weapon in the park. He was sentenced to a $7,500 fine, 24 months of unsupervised probation and forfeiture of all of his hunting equipment seized in the field. Additionally, Narasky agreed to stay outside of Yosemite National Park's boundaries for the duration of his probation.

    On May 25th, 2010, Chris Gierlich pled guilty to 14 of 17 counts in Federal Court. These counts included three counts of hunting within Yosemite National Park, three counts of violating the Lacey Act and three counts of possession of a weapon within Yosemite National Park.

    On May 25th, 2010, Chad Gierlich pled guilty to nine of 17 counts in Federal Court. These counts included three counts of hunting within Yosemite National Park, three counts of violating the Lacey Act and three counts of possession of a weapon within Yosemite National Park.

    Chad Gierlich, Chris Gierlich, Kyle Narasky received sentences from Mono County Judge Stan Eller including up to 60 days in jail, between two and ten years hunting license revocation, three years probation, $1,000 fine, up to 200 hours community service.

    On Tuesday, October 19th, 2010, Chad and Chris Gierlich were sentenced in Federal Court. Chris received sentencing including five years of supervised probation, 250 hours of community service, and 45 days of house arrest. Additionally, Chris is prohibited from hunting within the United States for five years, is not allowed to be in the presence of anyone hunting, and is not allowed to possess a bow and arrow.

    Chad Gierlich’s sentence in federal court included five years of supervised probation and a $52,368 fine. Additionally, Chad is prohibited from hunting within the United States for five years, prohibited from being in the presence of other hunters, and is not allowed to possess a bow and arrow. He is not allowed in Yosemite for the duration of his probation.

    The California Department of Fish and Game and the National Park Service extend their mutual thanks and appreciation for the assistance in bringing these serial poachers to justice. Only by working closely and cooperatively were successful prosecutions achieved. Additionally the NPS and the California Department of Fish and Game, wish to assure the people of California and the United States that we remain steadfast in our resolve to cooperatively and effectively protect our natural resources.

    This multiagency investigation and convictions represents the most severe civil and criminal penalties ever associated with illegal hunting in the history of Yosemite National Park.
