What is a Flu Flu ??

7 posts in this topic

I've been talking to some guys and they suggested to get some Flu Flu . I believe they are some sorta of a tube or jig. They are using them fishing for crappies and other small fish.
Since my fishing experience goes back to 3 days ago max. grin.gif I would like if somebody can explain what they are, and where to find them.

I have a high school budy that swears by them for all species!A few years ago my buddy got out of the service and came home.He went crappie fishing with his dad and caught a 5lb northern on a flu flu tipped with a crappie minnow.To this day,no matter if we are fishing catfish,pike,walleye or panfish,if the fishing is slow he will tie one on.The darndest thing is he usually catches a fish.

Valv,
Open your "owners manual" again. Yup, the manual where the center page folds out. Somewhere in the manual you should see a Flu Flu wink.gif

Dave, usually the Flu Flu happens to me when I look at that catalog..... grin.gif (My wife says...yeah right).

Thank you everybody, I decided to go to a bait shop and get some, looks like they work very well with crappies.
