Plastic Fintastics

Soft plastics like this Yummee Fly'N Fish are gaining popularity among offshore anglers for use as teasers and hook baits because they're more convenient (easy to store and transport) and durable (won't wash out or decompose) than natural bait. Oh, and they catch fish, too. Here's a look at what you can find in tackle shops.
