It would seem that latex surgical tubing would work better since it comes in assorted sizes and you can take sharpie markers and tint it to what ever colors you want. It is very soft an durable so it will last a lot longer and still give you the action in the water. You can take a little braided line and sew the front part of the tube closed.

The poaching thing is getting played out. Andy got got busted for overfishing and nobody batted an eye. The baits are stupid because they are overpriced and there’s nothing new about them. They got bit on some seabass and now everybody is freaking out about them. There’s a ton of ways to mimic the bait, just do that and get over it.

Who is Andy?

People were pissed at the pacstar when they got caught

I bought a pack. $15.99 for 2. Yes, one halibut, one lure. I started shoving the body up a kajiki. Works the same.

Now that I know the poacher, I'll pass. Probably woulda passed anyway after trying a pack.

I have no delusions on what Chad did—I’m just pointing out the blatant hypocrisy on this board and the double standards.

Also you got to admit the way they poached although both illegal are a bit different if that makes any sense

Lol. Just wait for him at the Dana dock. He’s got the black hook up key west boat and return them then. Straight to the top.

Saw their new slogan. “ Hooked up baits, almost as easy as poaching”

I jk, but my personal experience with him was not that great. That’s why I will not purchase them.

Yeah. This guy is full of shit. He's using the same minnow head design do-it mold sells. The tubes are easy to reproduce by hand dipping plastic. I bought a pack of 5/8 for ten bucks just to see what made them so special. There is nothing special about them. I still feel like I got ripped of.

The problem is there are reputable shops who knows he is a poacher but don't care.

These shops are run by respected sportsmen who I thought knew what sport meant... What a shame
Angler’s Arsenal (now in Lakeside) for example is one of them. They knowingly despise Chad/Hookup Baits but admit they carry them because people “buy the shit out of them.” So, if you all stop buying them, they will stop carrying them! They used those same words.

there are other options out there that they dont need to work with people they dont want to work with
