Thanks for the explanation - These lures out fished at least 15 other local bait shop lures 6 times in a row! I ordered more because I ran out. Casting in breaking fish in the Chesapeake Bay there are none better to my knowledge. Amazing! We tried some look-a-like ones we found @ Bass Pro - not even close - when casted side by side to the Hopkins - your lure was the unmistakable winner - catching on nearly every cast - thanks again.
