I've caught 1000's of brownies using CD Rapalas in rivers . They kinda suck now because they are made so shitty nose breaks or the lip comes off and they cost about $9. Super gluing the lips seems to help a little. Tried a few of the Dynamic jerkbaits wasn't a fan to light and they want to pop out of the water when you rip them in. Stick to carp, sucker or whitefish colors. I picked up some Smithwick jerkbaits. First appearance they seem to be much better quality. Going to drill a hole in a few and see if I can turn them into sinkers fill them with water or something then reseal.
