needlefish lures>>>surf lures for stripers, blues

Any of you who know a smidgen about striper or bluefish angling on the shore or on inshore boats have seen these before...Needlefish lures can represent a number of forage species....1)well yes...they do look like needlefish, as they should....of course....are there needlefish around where we fish....YES!...i have actually seen one across from mago point , i thought it was a large blade of grass at 1st...until , the blade of grass was swimming around with a silverside in it's was blueish-green just like the ones i've seen in jamaica..the warmwater outflow of millstone attracts warmwater fish....i even heard stories of wahoo in there...
2)the sandeel.....perfect shape, and smaller ones are a matching size....sandeels are a big part of the striper's diet...
3)regular eels......the slenderness is a match....with a bucktailed siwash hook, it can gimmick it up to look like it's tail is "swimming"
4)a stubby needle can look like a chovy, a bunker, you name it...possibilities are endless...the stubby ones are stout..thicker in the back.
5)a tinker mackerel...slender...the profile isn't as thick, but close enough...
so...the possibilities are endless...
i will post pictures of different kinds...their designs are all similar in nature...there are many different sizes... far as theses things go.....i would recommend to anyone to get gibbs.....gibbs lures have lots of life in them...and they are precision tuned...i would also recommend salty's....their parts are tough and are matched well..

i make swayze look like a dance dweeb!
