They work great with the Core Tackle Cover Shot. Big Smallies loved them.
I used paired this lure with Core Tackles Hover Shot Rig and used it fishing for smallmouth last month (October) and had a great time catching and releasing dozens of nice smallies. I found it to be very effective on suspended fish as I could count it down and work the lure above the fish. It just was a great setup for catching them. Did I mention that the Walleye loved it too. I don’t eat bass, but my wife and I had some great dinners eating some really good walleye fillets.
