Anyone use knock-off lures? Found some on ebay that look pretty nice. Just wonder how they work.
I buy unpainted lures from China, paint them and rig them with hooks and split rings. They need to be tuned to run straight but after that, they are fine. I've seen the lures you have before and I'm certain it's going to be the same, tune to run and they will catch fish.
The only knock offs I've used with any success are spoons for pike fishing, and they are clearly not the most finicky of fish.
