    Hi all-
    Are there any local places I can pick these up at? I know I can order them from Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops but Im looking for local stores . Anybody know?

    Planning on picking up the Red/Gold in 1/6 and the Firetiger in 1/6.

    -Thomas

    I know Sports Chalet has them and I'm pretty sure that Wal-Mart carries them. I would just call the store before you go, because I have seen wide variances in inventory from store to store.

    They're pretty common like eric said, Wall Mart, Sport Mart, Sport Chalet, some K-marts even have them.

    red n gold r the way to go bro for sure with the red/yellow/black spots. cast out let it flutter and fall then reel a lil bit and let it fall again. ive got more fish on the fall than reeling. thats just my opinion

    a forgotten lure that really works great on the drop or with a super slow retrieve is the old Shorty Hopkins just get the smallest one available but don't be surprised if a monster bucket mouth hits it

    I've never used this lure. I noticed it does not come with a ring or swivel. When using the TB spoon do you tie right to the hole in the spoon or do you have better luck using a swivel or ring?:unsure:

    Very true Roy. Personally the Cyclone is the best working one of the Thomas Bouyants. I don't care for the one that has the fish shape.

    Caught many trout with just line/Tb, they do get spin to them...I guess a swivel or ring wouldn't hurt especially if trolling.

    If you don't use a swivel with these things you will get some serious line twist.

    Are snap-swivels effective?
