Has anyone bought or tried any of these lures? I'd like to buy some sub-surface lures that are less than the regular $20-50 each. I know I'll have to change out the hooks and split rings on most of them, but I have a lot of that stuff already from making some of my own lures.

Here's what I've found. Let me know if any of these have been used, abused, broken, worked, etc...

Daiwa Salt Pro Minnow Series (3 different baits) $6.95-9.95
Daiwa Salt Pro Minnow


Bomber Magnum Long A $6.99
Bomber Saltwater Grade Long A or Magnum Long A Hardbaits


Storm Suspending Giant Thunderstick $11.99
Cabela's -- Storm® Suspending Giant ThunderStick® MadFlash



What budget/less expensive lures have you guys found that seem to hold up under tough conditions? I get that pretty much none of these were made to handle 100+lb YFT, but for 50-60 lb schoolies and blackfins in the gulf??

heres a tip i got from d-a. drill a small hole in the lure and fill it with small shot to increase weight. then fill hole with epoxy.

Hey Kidflex (Brian?), I was just about to say something along those lines, but now you've confirmed my thoughts! :D I think I'll try that out and give it a shot. Thanks!
