There def. overpriced...but they do produce surprisingly, this smallie was caught on my 1st time using one a few yrs ago. Multiple sizes of them available now 90,110,120 etc... This was on the 110 size i believe.

I've heard good things about them and wanted to know if you guys had any experience, I'm planning on getting bag into fishing. These are the ones I'm looking at

If ur gonna spend that...get the real ones made by river to sea for half the price. lots of knock offs out there. u can get much better made baits for $24.99

028 is what the smallie hit...bone and loon are also known producers on this particular lure.

Ok, I'll do that, I've just heard really good things about the VTAVTA ones. I guess I'll spend a bit more on them, note that I'm getting a pack of 5 for $24.99, not just 1 for $24.99

My son and I use them. He’s 10 and has caught some nice bass on it. I have caught some as well. We like the bone color. One of my bass buddies turned me on to them. Not too fond of the small one though- it doesn’t ride on the surface when retrieving unless you reel it fast. The midsize one works much better. Never tried the big one.
I hope to catch some stripers on one.

I use a lot of topwater during the spawning season when smallys and pike are sitting in 3-6 feet of water. Might give these a try next spring. Here both species are open all year round. During spawn I only catch and release.
