Awesome idea Jeff! I can pick up that TS plug I want as well.
Squid on a tube is a winner, light and definite presence in the water. The legs and eyes are tied to the end of a plastic tubefly tube and the mantle tied up toward the top end where it's wrapped to the hook shank and finished.
2x big eye baitfish are chunky enough to interest the slabs in the surf. I tied a mack attack, a 10" tinker in the round. The blackboa is almost ready but I am still experimenting with heads for the snake.
Giant banger next...
