I'm looking for a discontinued item that I believe has been off the market for 5+ years. It's the 3" Sizzler Grub by Johnson Lure. I'd prefer Chartreuse with a Silver tail and/or Pearl with Blue flake, but am open to any that may be available. Please let me know if you have any information - thanks!

The problem with finding sizzlers is that when Pure Fishing bought out Johnson fishing they only kept the cash cow lures like the Silver Minnow spoons. The people there havn't even heard of the sizzer, so I don't think your gonna find any unless you find em in some dusty corner of a tackle shop somewhere. Sorry man.

With plastics, and with lures in general, when they stop making them they are gone for good. Your just forced to find something new thats probably better than the sizzlers anyways. Every year they come out with something thats better and me being a tackle junkie its hard to just keep tabs on all the newest best stuff. For example -

The 3 inch version of the hammerhead swimbait - should be killer for big crappies. I wanna try them for walleys bass and trout too.
