Very cool! I'll have to try them here. I've had good sucess on trout, but never tried them in warm water. How do you fish them?

I generally fish it using slow strips trying to keep it on the bottom. Having said that, the small pond that I was fishing was just stocked the other day with these guys, so they aren't quite "on to me"....yet. Good luck!
