Yes, they work great! I've been dock shooting them with BG and CrappiePro 1/24 oz. jig heads... I would recommend super gluing the body to the head for longer life! Good luck, and I hope you like them as much as I do!

That watermelon wine is a good looking color. It should work well for you. I haven't seen the tuxedo shimmer but I'm going to have to check those out for sure. Looks like its time to place an order. I really like the mo glo outlaw special color personally but I'm open. To trying others.

I bought some of those mo glo's a couple months ago and haven't even opened them yet. I think i'll give them a try next weekend.

Watermellon Wine worked yesterday. We caught 25 with the biggest 15 1/4". I used it with one of Curtiss Hobb's Lightwire hooks.:ThumbsUp

I really like them C.J. Especially in dirty water. That outlaw special is just my confidence color but I do real good on it usually.

Well, I'll never know how it tasted, but it did have good taste......cause, it tasted my "Watermelon Wine".
It was a dink day for sure..........but, it sure felt good. Water temp at 79, clear water, ambient temp at 67
and a slight breeze. Overcast skies, no rain or skeeters and lots of trees to fish around. The fish finder showed lots
of fish, caught a few @ 12' and finally quit pesterin' 'em. Glad I wasn't glued to the TV and was fishin' instead.

Concentration & contemplation didn't help much either.

Spoke with the manager of Academy in Ft. Worth on Cherry Lane today. He is a big time bg crappie bait fisherman and he said he would
get on the stick and order some of the "NEW" Bobby Garland baby shads in Watermelon Wine and Tuxedo Shimmer asap. I'll be checkin'
in on him on a regular basis. Seemed like a real nice guy.

finally got a chance to try them out in a rain storm, nothing on tuxedo shimmer 15 or so on watermelon wine 8 were keepers , used 4 # test 1/16 white road runner along with a couple yellow perch , so i am pleased with the results , only had about an hour and a half to fish before 20 mph winds got to be to much , definitely giving them some more action on my next outing , i want to try this outlaw special you speak of

Appreciate the reports and I did try the super glue application and it really does work. Never too old to learn new tricks.:ThumbsUp
