I've had good luck with the copper one, making it flutter in the Farmington River for trout during the fall. I'd imagine it would be a good jiggin lure. Nothin beats the Swedish Pimple though.

Try tipping them with the head of a shiner. I've watched video of it being done with phebes

I had a goldfish, and managed to lose it snagged on something within a few casts before I could catch anything on it.  :-\  Been meaning to buy a couple new ones....

Phoebes are awesome though, metallic perch was my favorite during open water. Managed to lose that one too.  :whistle:
