Peeete's Surph Mouse...
 
Emerita...
oval-shaped crustaceans... AKA: mole crabs, sand crabs, sea pigs, sea lice, beach hoppers... or mine, the Surph Mouse...
There ya' are... low tide on a phlat, phriendly ElbowTown South Beach...
Tumblin' around in the shallow surf smorgasbord and enjoyed by discriminating hungry Stripes...

Nice, what hook & size?

Mustad Signature Series...
 
Tarpon... 1/0...
I wanted a wide gap and a heavy enough hook to get it down in the proper orientation...
Intended to roll around in the sudzie shallowz where the paranoid critterz scurry for cover in the surph mugging zone...
ps...
It's NOT "paranoia" if they really are trying to get YOU!
