Default Sluggos ?

Whats everyone's honest opinions on sluggos? If you like them. . . what colors and set ups work well and how do you fish them? I fish for large mouth using gary yamamoto senkos and such, any similarities? Also if you don't like them, why?

a few good surfcasters are into senko's and power baits in the back bays. they don't just catch small bass either. like every plug/lure/jig/bait, you have to commit to what you know will always work in the piece of real estate you are working them. variety is a happy accident and once you key in on fish with something it always stays in your arsenal.

The sluggo's get torn apart after 1 or 2 fish. Thats the downside.

Little green senko when the sand eels are around and hold on! Sluggo's work and have worked for years! Got Stryper is good but they don't glue well and tend to slide off the jig head in heavy current.

The green gary's for when the sand eels are around sounds like a promising set up. All the info is much appreciated.

Those work well but I'd have to use them every trip for the the next three years to equal the number of fish I've caught on sluggos, additionally there have been times while jigging where the ron-z has failed to catch and the sluggo has. I wouldn't get too fixated on one particular plastic.

i like black 9" sluggos with or without a 1oz leadhead in certain places... seems to work well on dark nights for striped bass when theyre a little picky on the north shore where i live

The Got Stypers are way better. Heck even the Hogys blow the sluggos away. I picked up 8 packs of Got Strypers at the Expo last weekend. Another awesome rubber bait is from Bill Hurley either the Striper Magnet or the rat tail. He has awesome jig heads with the best jg paint I have seen-plus like the Got Styper they have a swivel eyelet on them. The Rat Tail is made with Eel oil and are very popular in MA and area. To find them google Bill Hurley Lures there is also a link to a article writen about his stuff
Here is a link to the NEsportsman article http://www.nesportsman.com/articles/article202.shtml

Oh and he makes swim baits that have moving eyes

This setup has what is called the mouse tail, but look at the jighead-awesome

sluggo's are great, but you have to know when to use them with how much weight or else they are a waste, also, as said, they get torn apart fast especially if blue fish are in the area.

Dude I was JUST thinking of something like this the other day but refrained from posting it on here for fear of ridicule....guess next time the light bulb goes off I should just put my thoughts out there, criticism be damned!!!! The idea actually came from looking at one of my daughter's dolls, ya know the ones with the eyes that "blink" when ya move them to and from the sleeping position. It got me thinking hmmmm, do fish blink and/or close their eyes???? Ok let the zings and poking fun at the doll references begin. . . . . . .

I did do a google search on it before posting on here and looking like a fool (lucklily), but it just got me thinkin ya know. Maybe not blinking but fish must move their eyes, or so I thought to myself so that could be an idea. Then my thought process switched from "fish-type" plugs to other aquatic delecasies (bugs, grubs, eels etc) a striper may eat and putting my blinking/shaky eyed idea into somethinglike that. I'm no plug maker so it was short lived but just the things I think about to keep my mind busy in the offseason.
