I dont believe that Clam has shipped any stock to its various retailers as of yet ...and if they have shipped its limited stock/items . Most retailers haven't even started up the hunting season sales yet . If/when they do get stock pounce as they sold out last season fairly quickly. I see lots of retailers have them on their site ..but out of stock ..probably in anticipation of restock for the season.

They were hard to find last season, I ended up finding an eBay seller who wasnt gouging prices due to the shortage, but had to pay a few bucks extra for shipping. They did work pretty well for me on panfish and one silkie would last all day, so Id recommend using any time you might be using a jig with a plastic or other artificial bait.

Make your own. I did.

Cabela's silicone glow beads and a spool of silk thread from the fabric store.

The thing I found troublesome was the bead was tough to pierce, rather than elastic. Stayed on the hook forever, though.

Guys started a thread last year when the Silkies came out.  Clam said that they should have their stock in stores and online in a month or so.  Stores haven't switched over to winter items - still in hunting mode.  If I run across stores that have them, I am going to grab a few packs and give them a try.  Lots of positive reviews, but always like to try them myself. 

Here was the link from last year if someone wants to try and make them at home.
