Epoxy an 8/0 hook to it and the musky will go after it!  I think they make them in fluo orange too.

What you posted are "trolls", Terry.

I am not sure what that thing Bimini posted is.  Other than the hair, there's no resemblance between yours and his.

 

Still ... troll or pixie or pixie-troll ... magic is magic.

Mine is an aqua-troll, aka whatever-you-want-to-call-it
