Well. Here's the results, the lure is just ok. Look good in the water and the tail kicked nicely. Got a few follows from some smaller pike and a hit or two but they missed. The arms for the blades are way thin and bend very easy, putting the lure off track often. I like the design, but it's cheaply made. If I lost it it would not be replaced.

On a side note the fishing overall sucked bad. Only two pike landed and a few slimers, but one of the pike went 33" and 10 lbs, caught on the last day on the last cast, hit on a gold spoon.

That's a Thomas Colorado Spoon- Not a Bouyant!

Nice pike-

But dont you know that you hafta use a 9' MH rod with a baitcaster spooled with 60lb braid hucking a 6 oz $100 swimbait until you're arms fall off to catch a decent pike?

Nice Pike! I feel like June is a strange month for fishing. I never seem to do very well in June.

Well I must be doing something wrong then! Although admittedly I do well when I make it to the high country in June, but I have not had much free time to do so for the last four years.

Haha, ya you're right, it was a Thomas Colorado spoon, good eye!
And yes, tell everyone that you need to huck big ass lures all day for big pike. It's a good workout if nothing else
