'Neon Deon'?

Anybody know who makes a paddle tail grub 3 1/2" called a Neon Deon? It's purple with red flake? I bought these a long time ago and lost the label and all that is left is a sticker on the zip lock bag with this name .
Thanks,

Re: Jerkbait vs Crankbait

Why not throw a crank out and work it like a jerkbait? Do the pause - jerk - pause? Why won't that be as effective? Especially in colder water where the wider body and bill would make it slower?

Jerkbait vs Crankbait

Why is it that all references to crankbaits say to make sure you are deflecting off of some type of structure but jerkbaits are made for more open water? Is it just the action of each? or that jerkbaits are more slender for a different appeal? I've never done very well on jerkbaits and would like to...

Berkley Gulp Products?

Kinda wondering, most tournaments do not allow any prepared baits, so what is Gulp classified? They advertise that it dissolves. I have never read anything on this forum that anybody is using or has used it? Is it legal for tournaments?

Re: NADA used boat prices ?

Isn't NADA just like Blue Book? Usually selling something, you check it out for what the dealers pay? Then see what they are going for above that?

I know I'm getting ready to sell my Stratos Fish & Ski and checked it out. Was surprised at the result.
