Re: First plug out of the bag.
As one who fishes almost exclusively at night, my go-to plug for the last year has been a stubby swimmer made by Jimi4290, white on bottom, blue on the sides, black on top. This little plug really shines. I gave it away to a real nice kid at the canal last month. Now playing with a green and black version of the same plug,,, there was something about that blue though.... It had some wicked mojo...
6" bunker colored Storm Wild Eye shads are always on hand too, as well as pencil poppers for daybreak.
