    Never heard of them. Do you have a pic? That could be a local name.

    I like the fact that you can get them up to 7 inches which is as big of store bait you can get and I think they would come in handy on days when bait is hard to come by as a matter of fact they may replace some baits at certain times.I hadnt got to do a thurough test but I was using herring all day and catchin a few fish, then right before it was time to go I put one of these on and within 5 minutes caught a fish.I plan on doin a better test this weekend.

    They look like goldfish to me, but maybe they are some breed of goldfish that are more hardy than the rest.

    I've been using them the last two years. The bait shop at the cross roads above Cedar Creek had them and Kelly One Stop has them. They look like gray goldfish and were first used here for striper fishing.
