Most lures are made to catch people not fish.

The Banjo lure is the same as the Guitar lure except it is *strung* differently. :signtripledogdare2wf: Thumper hit in on the nose.... to catch people. Use the same amount of money and buy the proven lures that will really catch fish. My two cents.

When I fished with lures I found the absolute deadliest one and most consistent producer to be a floating Rapala. For bass I liked putting a split shot up far enought to hold it above the weeds on the bottom and fluttering it like a wounded minnow. I caught my biggest ever bass using this method. I've caught lots of different kinds of fish with the Rapala including catfish and salmon. I'm also very fond of the size 0 Mepps Aglia, Pixies and Daredevyls. Green and red. A Rapala fished in the undercut banks of the Owens river used to pull out some really big browns.

When I was guiding, I painted my Rebels, and others, with my own color. Basicly all fish are silver flake underneath. I painted the whole lure this color after scraping off the orginial color.. I used finger nail polish in pearl first, then clear silver flake. (several coats of each after each coat dries.) It dries really fast and will float and it give the lure extra weight when casting that extra long distance when the fish are working the surface. You can normally find these colors at a Dollar Store. Don't forget to re-paint the gill plate and eyes again with a red paint with a tooth-pick.
