Years ago, I used Hopkins stainless steel lures for Striped bass in New England. It was a killer to say the least. While living here in Washington State, I noticed Salmon fishermen fishing the migration salmon in the fresh water rivers with herring, and only during the early hours of the day. Then they would head home after the sun came up, saying "Salmon don't bite in streams during sunny days" Again, the flash of the Hopkins lure pulled through for me. Just so happens this lure opened a whole new interest in mid day fishing. It is a killer for our Chinook. Thanks for a quality product that I could count on for generations.
