Congratulations on your awesome success SUCHFUN, 18 Stripers is quite a catch.

I saw these things advertised in the back of a fishing magazine with a black and white add that looked like a newspaper report. I have always wondered who buys these things and if they actually work. Guess I know now.

Check out the advertisement picture:



You know it’s a high quality product when taxidermy mounts are used for a "live action shot" of the lure.

Here’s a nice picture of the inventor Scott Wilson with a ten-pound bass:



Way to go Scott!!!


Tournament Bass fishermen beware; you might want to wait until the Tournament Officials come to an official ruling regarding this lure. Check out this quote from the article:

"Curiously, the company may have designed it too well. Tournament fishermen who have used it said its possible officials will not allow it in contests where live bait is prohibited."

I just tried calling Roy Scott of BASS and was told he could not come to the phone as he and the Tournament Officials of the Ethics Committee are having a conference at this very moment regarding the kick tail. :D

You can see the whole "News Paper" report at:

That ad reminds me of the Golf Ball ads in the back of golf digest, you know the one - the black and white one that looked like a newspaper article but at the top said "paid advertisment". It too claimed the ball might be banned from tournament play. They must have used the same ad agency.

Sounds like old Scott has a universal formula for success. Funny thing is if he would take a little bit of the money he has been "earning" and applied it to a better advertising campaign he might have something.

There has been an ad for a "miracle ear" system that has been running equally cheesy ads in the back of guitar magazines for as long as I can remember.

Dont know if anyone saw it but i read an article in North Carolina Sportsman about these lures. They went to some lake in Florida and let 4 guys use live bait etc. The other 4 guys used this same lure I believe and outfished the other guys about 48-14

One of my buddies tried a similar lure. It had even more segments than the one shown above to make it more "life-like". He got it a couple years ago. The last time I fished with him I saw it on his boat and it was all rusty so I asked about it. He said it cost a lot of money and never caught one fish.
