while reeling and maintain contact with the lure.

I get asked a lot about what colors are best?
Olive/White mimics a nice size sand eel or needlefish color and size when
you see it in the water..
Black/Silver makes a perfect small fish imitation such as medium/large
sand eel. Electric Squid is a
great color to imitate frightened squid as they flee predator fish in the
rips and rocks of the northeast. Yellow or Parrot at sunrise or cloudy days.
Black/purple at night with the glow eyes is a killer if you softly light up
the eyes in your headlamp. On sunny days I stick with a color that has a high
definition color hue change on it....Olive/White, Blue/White, etc.
Spend some time looking at the bait prevalent in your area and you will soon
understand why certain colors can give you just that little bit extra
advantage to entice a larger fish to take your lure.
Don't be afraid to use such colors as Olive/White, Blue/White, Parrot, or
Yellow/White at night either!
We've found that the larger needles work very well
from a boat also!
Slow steady retrieve, occasional twitch. You can make them "swim" real nice
and stay in contact with the lure for even the light hits! Works well in rip
edges for light tackle fishing!
