Hi Larry I just wanted to know what your thoughts would be about a soft plastic praymantis shrimp I made. I thought I woud no longer keep it secret and show people my lure so I decided to post it on a fishing blog that I won't name the administor of this blog just gave me a negative feed back he also called it to complicated and also said stripers will not touch it because its not natural. Well little does he know it has a natural gliding and tail ficking action that is how I designed it have a lifelike action. I had done a lot o online searching to find a soft plastic mantis shrimp and only came up with the berkly mantis shrimp my design is an almost replica of the praymantis shrimp there is no other soft plastic lure like it a all. I just wanted your opinion if it is a to complicated design and should I stick to basic designs. Any feed back would be appreciated ctalman.

Sorry for the delay. Yes, I saw your pics but we are having getting them and others loaded up. New website, new process for uploading the pics and the guy who knows the proper way of doing it was gone the end of last week. So we will have your pics up by Tuesday as we need to make sure they are uploaded properly and don't mess anything up as I'm pretty sure I would've done.
