Lately I have been on a kick with these 1 1/8" little cuties and doing them in striped, almost a perch like pattern. The top right blue bait has purple on the back towards the head of the bait that feathers down past the eyes and onto the gill areas but its pretty hard to see in the picture. Out in the sun its really striking. The transparent blue stripes on the pink bait are heavy with blue hi lite so they show up more when at certain angles of when the light strikes them just so...in this pictures case they're really lit up. At another angle you may not see them at all. These little guys will get down to about 6' on a 4 pound line and moderate retrieve rate. Fantastic action. I'm really beginning to like this bait and have another order in for more blanks already, but for now with the blanks I have on hand it'll be a stripe pattern regardless of color.
