Agree with pointdog33
They are very good eating but a pain to clean. The yield is also terrible, even larger fish have fairly small filets after it is said and done.
With that I will still keep them and clean them up.
Make sure you remove the blood line if you have a larger fish, will ma...

Caught a couple this weekend.
Didn't measure the biggest one but I measured the bottom of my boat (23.5 inches) and it folded up on both sides. So I am positive it was at least 24 inches.
Other two were in the 3-4 pound range.

Used to fish them like this but I would only catch the occasional bass but my main catch was catfish and the occasional goggle eye. (Bayou Liberty - Bayou Sauvage inside the levee system)
However in clear water you might have better luck. In Arkansas this was the preferred bait for small mouth ...

Yeah I feel the same way about the fluke. Since I started fishing it my catch rates have significantly increased.
| Outdoor Board|| re: What brand of flukes do you use - computerguy on 3/24/14 at 12:21 pm|
I will have to pickup a pack and I will throw them on one of my beetle spin setups.
The Tiny Flukes appear to be very popular, i kept seeing them mentioned from the marsh / speckled trout threads.
| Outdoor Board|| re: What brand of flukes do you use - computerguy on 3/24/14 at 12:19 pm|
If you are looking for durability try the Strike King 3X line. It is a very 'stretchy' type rubber much different than the classic worm rubber you typically see.
Yeah I saw Yamamoto had a line of flukes. I would imagine they would use the same material as their other lines....

"I use Zoom and Strike King KVD's. The KVD's are a little heavier, I like them in windier conditions."
I will have to check out the KVD line then. Lure weight it key for me. Most of the places I fish are massive grass flats, so making long casts is vital to finding fish.

Looks like Zoom is by far the favorite. Looks like that will be my next purchase.

I have seen them in the store and they have a real match the hatch thing going for them. I see a lot of shad schools were the minnows are 1-2 inches...

| Outdoor Board|| What brand of flukes do you use - computerguy on 3/24/14 at 9:09 am|
Over the past year I have been fishing more and more with the fluke. So far the only brand I have used is the Strike King 3X brand flukes. What I like is that they are very durable. I typically catch 8-20 bass on a single bait.
I was just curious what others were using.

Depending on the type of camping you want to do:
If you are looking for some 'real' tent camping I would strongly suggest renting canoes and going down the Buffalo River and camping along the sand bars at night. You can rent canoes in any city near the river, they will drop you off and pick you ...

Hard to beat the White River/Crooked Creek/Buffalo River/Bull Shoals/Norfork Lake area around and close to Mountain Home, AR.
I would definitely recommend looking at anything along the White or Buffalo River. Bull Shoals is also a great lake/area.

If I was offered 13 mil a year to do a job that I hated (Jimmy with raiders or shitty team) versus a job that I loved at 10 mil per year (Jimmy with Saints), I would absolutely go with the latter. He also has the added incentive to be in the HOF and win a Super Bowl.

At what point do soft plastic baits melt?
