I took off after work yesterday with a couple boxes of baits made from the original QD275 prototype mold. My first cast was up in the brush and never hit the water, but my first cast that hit the water got bit and boated a keeper. A few minutes later I stuck this 5+ pounder. The bait works. Got a dozen on it give or take. First time on the water and the bait worked great.
P.S. I was using a ML XF spinning rod with 20lb braid. She put a hurt on that rod, but the line handled her just fine. Was a lot of fun on an ML rod.
