You may be surprised at the multitude of species I can catch we these guys. I live in MI and fish them up here for Largemouth/Smallmouth, Pike, hell even trout once in a while. In the salt, they work great for just about anything with an appetite. When wet they really slim down and form a nice profile. Can be a pain to tie, but once you get used to palmering the soft hackles they go pretty quick.
