Does anyone know where a guy can buy these things? I've looked everywhere and no sign of them. Reef Runner doesn't even have them on their own site.
Fishing is: One jerk waiting for another jerk at the end of his line.

I believe Denny Braun owner of The Sportsman's Outpost in Vermillion, Ohio will have some at his booth during the upcoming Cleveland Boat Show at the IX Center in a few weeks. These may very well be the first ones available to the general public. You can call Den at 888 855 9032 to get the scoop straight from him.

Check with Al at Reelbait, I heard he will have some within a couple of weeks. Looks like you can already order them and he has the colors listed.

I was told that i will have them at the Cleveland boat show, that starts the 17th or 18th of this month. i may have some before that for the shop. good luck and good fishin.
Does anyone know if they come in any specialty colors,ie Franks Outdoor Shop has some great colors in reef runner and rip sticks, just wondering if those colors will be avaiable.

For you Colorado, NM, Wyo types - what colors should we invest in?

I am a Colorado guy and the color I personally won't be without is Cheap Sunglasses. It has outfished other colors 4 to 1. Second place would be Clown. I don't know what it is about Cheap Sunglasses but it really has worked (for me).

Gray Ghost, Flame, Orange Juice, Perch, Chrome, Golden shinder, etc.
You probably noticed a pattern. For myself, the naturals in good light and water. Otherwise it is anything with orange. A guy I fish with won't pull somehting without orange and I give him a hard time, but most of the time he comes up with fish when other stuff isn't working.
We don't have super clear water and the orange always seems to do well.

I'll take 4 of each please. Never know what is going to work!

Tews in Oshkosh HAD some of each color. He told me that he sold 50 of the baits before he got them out of the box.
He also said that Reef Runner told him they were out about 6 weeks to get another shipment, so I picked up a couple while the getting was good :)

These new baits look pretty good. I can't wait to get some and try them!
It's Jan.11 and I can't locate any, Got x-mas cash burnin a hole in pocket and looking for a source? Any Ideas? Would like a pair of all colors, where do I start?
call Den @ 1 888 855 9032
I called Cabelas yesterday, and they don't have any. The guy I talked to said he didn't think they would have any until early March.
How is it that some have them, and a big retailer like Cabelas doesn't?
