The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.
All the romance of fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

Those baits get horrible reviews, but I like them.

Their quality control doesn't seem to be the best. The first one I had was great and would swim perfectly from a burn to as slow as you could crank it. This one literally didn't swim at all out the package, but I pulled all the pins and cut and widened all the cavities where the loop things fit in so it would be able to swing wider. I also had to mess around with hook combinations to find some that worked, but now it's fixed to where it'll catch some fish.

I too had one that wouldn't swim. I bought it from Tackle Warehouse. Called them about it, and they sent me a new one and never asked for the bad one back. Now I have parts. :LOL2:
