The weather was super hot this past weekend. I decided to take a break from fishing and went shopping instead. It is as much fun shopping as is fishing :D .
I got some lures from shopping in a few stores and some fresh blue claw crabs, and finished with some cold beer!!

Fishing was decent this late Spring/Summer so far, I was fishing mostly at night and did not take much pictures. But will post a report soon .

Maruthu, the Gold bombers in the left were the ones that i caught the lasrge MJ in my first trip to the West Coast.

@RaMpEr I will get some Mackerel bombers.

Bobby,
The crabs were fresh blue claw crabs that I picked at the Seafood/ bait and tackle store, and cooked them up for dinner. The blue claw crabs become more available in Summer.

@Maruthu, I didn't fish any of these lures yet !
Spro bucktails are very good for flounder fishing from shore, tipped with gulp. These Spro's have a heavier than normal hook and I haven't fished them yet.
True about Andrus, I never fished spro bucktails for striped bass. But there was one time in Barnegat Inlet NJ few years ago, I was fishing in the deep inlet outgoing tide, and heavy current and I caught about 5 bluefish about 10-12 pounds, on the Andrus.
There was another guy fishing next to me, he had a 2 or maybe 3 oz spro bucktail and he might have caught over 15+ bluefish that size. !! I believe the Spro bucktails sink better than andrus in deeper channels and inlets.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I think they have their time and place. I think sometimes it is more to do with the bait profile in terms of size. I still have a couple of half-ounce Spro bucktail jigs left with me that have 4" curly tail trailers on them. I've heard that the Spro style bucktail jigs work great for Mulleys and I am going to try them in the freshwater for Mulleys and I'll let you know how that goes. Who knows, I might be buying a dozen of Spro bucktail jigs after, all depending on how it goes :-)
