They are a plastic bait sold mostly in the baxter/brainerd area from what I've seen. Put them on a small jighead and off you go.

I picked some up at fleet farm in Brained the other day, sportland bait in Nisswa always seems to have the best selection of them, if your up that way!

Spearing Machine, they're a fantastic little plastic... You can get them in quite a few places, but the people above are correct, the Brainerd area is flooded with the best selection. You can get them from tiny bluegill size all the way up to a walleye killer size. Huge selections of colors. One of the best things to hit the fishing market... They've changed ownership a few times over the years, but you can still hunt them down online if you search your butt off.

funny I have a bunch of those but it has been a couple years since I put one on cause it seemed that they were sold in Brainerd and they worked in Brainerd area lakes......even though I fish up there I tend to use other plastics....maybe it is time to slip one on a jig again!!!

    • So Mike, you saying there both the class clowns!!
    • hummingbirds are gone fron Itasca county, but still have them here in cold spring, stearns county. pretty sure there slowly heading south.   still had loons on each of the 3 lakes we fished.
    • It's been around for at least 30 years.....    
    • Yeah, that is awesome!  I hope the guy chokes down his humble pie and realizes what a gift you and your son are willing to give him!
    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵
    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around.
