That was one of those periods when color was a difference maker, or so I have read. Block Island Green. I would think that selling fish meant you had to go with the plug, bait or method that produced the best immediate result. Nothing else would make sense. I have come to love and trust the almighty bucktail, and it's always the first plug in the water even when guys are hooking up with something else. My read is that I can hook up more often with the bucktail, until the fish tell me something different.

Yes, that is pretty much my philosophy. I have always had favorites and I never cared what others were using. My choices, as I recall, were always better.
