Festivus Anybody like the Rockport Rattlers? Seems like something that would work and help make a little noise.

Academy makes one too that actually looks better than those. Next time I order online I'm gonna pick up a couple of packs. There hooks and terminal tackle are very good for the money.

Totally up to you. Most people will say it doesn't matter. I tend to get them in pink, white, or chart and will do use opposite of what color tail I am fishing.

Ie, if using a lure with chart tail, I have a pink jig head.

habanerojooz Bass Assassin - Screw lock and push on
Zman Trout Eye - yellow eye or white eye

I normally use longer shank heads but opt for short shank if throwing Gulp Swimming Mullet for flounder. Prefer screw lock over push-on as I don’t like frequent adjustments required to push the soft plastic back onto the head when the plastic wears out from multiple fish.

fish4food No telling. I mainly use the 2/0 but have gone back to 3/0 with Better success.

No. I think mine are from about 5 or 6 years ago. I stopped in one time while scouting and bought about 100 so I would be set for a while.

depends, seems most fish tend to follow from behind prior to eating, and grab the back end first. a lot of times when you are reeling in close to the boat, they think it is getting away, and move in for the kill, from behind. it's a confidence thing. just my thinking and it has served me well. i could be wrong.
