It is unlawful to use lights to sportfish unless the light is attached to a hook or line used in angling. This includes visible lights that are emitted by underwater cameras

Cool action, and looks very realistic to me.

I am a fairly novice fisherman, but I would guess (correct me if Iím wrong) that maintaining line tension to get a good hook set would be challenging with this lure.

Would it not require a very slack line to swim freely?

hmmm given its limitations as in depth etc I would bank it as a gimmick/novelty type thing....a sharped tooth Mexican fish will destroy it....enjoy it cuz she is gonna go kaput....

The ones I bought were 36 Canadian delivered.....i don't see how it will get trashed too bad since its just hard rubber....like any other lure...but well see.

I'll be doing night fishing in mexico from a boat so I think the light will help....

The one I bought dosnt mention depth limitations...but im sure there are some....

If its gets trashed carching fish ill be happy!!! Thats what its for!!!

The leaders are going to be the important thing. Toothy big fish in Mexico will be stealing your investment.

Lots and lots of fishing gimmicks out there and very few are truly effective

Might be a fun toy but doubt itís going to get amazing results

I could see that lure catching A LOT of fish.

A little spendy but that's almost to be expected.

I would definitely like to try one out..

Well im going to mexico on Nov 25th....back 2 weeks later. I will definitely report back.

I was out camping and showed my neighbor who is a friend the lure. We filled up his kiddy pool and tried it out. He ordered 2 on the spot....lol. he is Mexican and will also be heading there in November.....

We use 60 lb floro so not to worried about losing the lure....but well see.

I got sucked into buying one. Tried it ice fishing while a pike bite was on and didnít get a hit. Had the aqua view down and nothing even looked at it. Put a piece of minnow on and that made no difference. Iíll try it again this winter but not as excited as I was when I got it. It would probably work better in open, shallow water though. The tension on the line made it swim in tight circles.

No mono or fluro can stand up to a wahoo or Spaniard (king mackerel for the yanks). Theyíll zip through ANY mono without so much as a click from the reel. You use wire and get far less bites or take your chances and hope they donít get the line in their mouth.







That lure is a little small for those species though so good luck and certainly report back once youíve tried it.

$36 bucks for a lure being expensive, lol. I wish they only cost $40 a pop.

If you don't, you'll probably catch yourself a red snapper
