    I just got a mail of Bill Hurley plastic baits (sluggo) from Kevin to try them. Thanks Kevin.

    The 9" sluggo looks good. But I had to find some lead head for the sluggo. When I looked around my shop, I found Shimano's Lucanus jigs with various sizes. Here is what I did.

    Looks good. I order some as well, but I plan of fishing them on a strike pro (I think) 3oz lead head. I thought these Hurley baits were good price ($4.99/4). I got the lead heads at Acadamy clearance $1.88/4. So looks like a decent bait for total cost of under $2/each.

    Kil, do you know where we can find solid rings that are not flat edged (like the Owners)? I don't want to make my own.

    Some rich bluefin go after expensive lures, but most blueifn don't care about prices. :)

    Did you check Anglers Proshop?
    I don't have round solid rings in stock, but I'lll get them soon.

    My bet is that Kil didn't have to pay much if anything at all for those Lucanus Jigs but I would love to hear he paid through the nose like the rest of us. I bought 5 of them in various sizes about a month ago for sea bassin' on Fleabay and have only used them once to great disappointment so maybe I will have to press a couple into tuna duty. Thanks for the idea Kil and I hope you try them tomorrow.

    its just another way to try a proven lure, is that bad? a bullet headed lead head would be a nice way as well. i want to try them here (texas) for tuna as I think they'll work.

    I was thinking the same thing!

    Great idea Kil. Now its time to test out the new creation.

    Bret, the hurleys are about the best deal I have found on this type lure (cheaper than slug gos and Hogies). I just ordered the 4 pack replacement bodies.

    Kil, APS has only mediums, and it says they are 14mm. I was hoping to find something a little smaller.
