    This is my first post here on the FFF...so thank you for this site!
    This last winter I had an idea for a new search bait and thought of an idea for this bait and after testing it over and over again I registered for a patent this summer.
    It is called the VibraSpin and my company is named KaRu Lures.
    This lure has had some success in tournaments too. My brother-in-law (Robert Sherry, St. Charles,IL) is a FLW Tour Pro and he took a TOP 25 on the Potomac River in Virginia using my lure.
    My question here is: Do you guys ever utilize bass or musky lures while saltwater fishing?
    Here is a picture of the VibraSpin:[Linked Image]
    [color:#FF6600][size:17pt]KaRu Lures[/size][/color] - website link

    It works quite well as a "search" bait. The blade attached to the vortex of the spinnerbait body gives off a tremendous amount of vibration. The tip of my pole actually vibrates from the blade action when I reel it in. It is a great bait to slow roll over the top of shallow rocks or weed lines.
    The "Vibra" Series has another lure, the "VibraShock". This also looks like a good saltwater lure.
    Is there a market there for my types of baits or should I just target market fresh water application?

    Am a Jersey Shore boy visiting the Keys for the month of Nov and actually brought along some similar spinner baits to experiment with. Figured I would try them bare and also with a Gulp! bait on the hook. Tried them in NJ for bluefish, which will hit anything shiney, but they make a mess of them. Also plan to try small spinner baits for sea trout (weakfish) in the Outer Banks of NC. Will let you know how I do.

    I have used alot of the soft plastics I use for Bass and I've caught Snook, Redfish, Trout, Etc... I also use most of same topwater lures that I use for Bass. Redfish and Bass are alot alike when it comes to what they'll bite on.

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree.

    Per my recent Keys fishing reports, I used a small white marabou streamer to take a 15 lb tarpon off a dock, then lost a small 1/8 oz crappie marabou jig on another of similar size.

    Also used a white 3/8 oz largemouth bass jig with nylon weedguard and rubber tendrils with a fresh shrimp threaded on the hook to catch a barely legal snook and then lost another. Thought it kinda looked like a big old hairy shrimp. Plan to try these again because they are very weedless -- although the rubber tendrils get chewed off pretty quickly.
