There was an old lure that I absolutely loved. It caught my biggest bass 8 1/2 pounds and also accounted for numerous other 5+ pounders. Unfortunately, I lost it to a tree 3 years ago and have never found one similar since. It was a jointed jerkbait, similar to a rapala jointed. I guess it was about 10 years old and made out of plastic. The paint was all worn off, but it was silver with a blue back. The difference between this one and a rapala jointed was that it had a looser joint and swam in a S pattern. My best guess would be that it was a rebel.. but I'm not too sure. It also was a shallow lure, running no deeper than 1 foot.

I was going to say a cordell jointed redfin until you said it didnt even run a foot deep. I dont know, probably a rebel wakebait or something like that, but look at the red fins and see if thats it.

Sorry about the pic.. I don't have one. Like I said, I lost the lure and am just trying to go by memory what it was. I personally thought it was a rebel, but I thought the joint was more in the middle instead of the rear. I'll check out the cordell and see if that was it.

Great site LKN4DDB. Ordered alot of fastracs from Gene for Baja.
He gets the right colors.

It wasn't a fastrac... looking at the mexfish website of the fastracs, it looked similar to the surface version but the joint was more in the middle. I'm starting to think it was a rebel jointed floating minnow. So if anyone can describe the action/swimming motion of a jointed floating minnow, I would be able to tell if that was it.
