    I only know of one boat that has used them this year. TheWoman got them sent to her from back east. Maybe she'll post a pic. I would post it, but I don't want to piss her off in case it was a secret or something. :) Pretty much everything is working right now though...

    2 oz 4.5" SI Epoxy jig in black/silver. You can change out the treble hook for a live bait hook and swivel. And stuff and all like that.

    The black silver 2oz SI Epoxy jig was killing them last week. We haven't played with all of the various Hogy jigs that I have (limited trips since I got a full order in), but the epoxy jigs look a lot like our chovies and did very well. Their tuna-rigged Epoxy jigs some with a swivel and single hook, but they are much bigger than our bait. I think Corey has a pic of the big ass Hogy Harness Jig that I have, and that thing could stop a bus, but they are coming out with a smaller version this fall and I'm looking forward to playing with that next year. Best of luck!

    I got some Flat Falls when I was in San Diego that are that Black/Silver color. I've been meaning to try them cause the Kali boys sweared by them. The shelves down there were void of them they are so popular. I lucked out and just so happened to be in Fishermans Landing right after they stocked them. I can't seem to put down the live shit though! I know they'll work...

    Yes I always say a secret given to me is not mine to give out.
    I found some on amazon 10" and white.
    it would so nice to not be a slave to the live bait people.

    We fished that 4.5" black and silver one (seen in the picture) on Saturday. Actually, I had it tied into a 7' 15-40 Daiwa VIP spinning rod with 50# braid and a 5' leader of 40# flouro, and handed to a total rookie right off the bat. First cast and the bastard was hooked up. Dude killed 4-5 in a row (maybe made 7 casts) before finally losing it. :( It was crazy stupid. Just slow cranked it near the surface, no jigging.

    Like Corey said, the action was hot, but I did toss a swim bait a few times and played with my pink/white Shimano butterfly- with no love. I'm sure I would have made both of those work, but I was really focusing on getting these 4 rookies onto fish (charity auction trip benefiting the Boys and Girls Club).

    I cannot beleave how hard it is to find them it looks like the only chance I have of getting one is to catch the fish that stole yours.
