“Just wanted to thank you for the best day I ever had surfcasting. Caught blues to 18 lbs. and bass to 35 lbs. on your White Pearl Giant. I lost count of how many fish I caught – somewhere in the mid-20s. I've never caught so many good size bass in 1 day.The finish held up awesome! Thanks again.”
“The jointed eel was deadly for me in Montauk last year on the very deep south side -- with 2 fish that easily broke the 30 lb. mark.”
“Gary Soldati, maker of BigWater lures is hopelessly obsessed with the Pikie shape, but to his credit, he knows those things inside and out. It seems he could get one to jump through hoops if he really wanted to. His SLIM Medium Diver gets DOWN…and the action is really very nice. Beyond that, it’s a beautiful plug and adheres to all of the quality standards we are used to seeing from Gary. ”
"GRS pikies are my go-to plugs when big bait are active. They don't roll out in rough conditions and they cover the entire water column. And for big metal lippers, they cast really well. My favorites are the SLIM Medium Diver and the Surfster. I get the diver down to about 12’, and with the right current, it would go 15’, while the Surfster stays right on top of the water and creates a wake that is irresistible to big fish. Don’t let the terrific finish and paint jobs make you hesitate to fish them – just clip one on and throw it out there. You’ll never regret it."
"I collected Gary’s plugs long before I fished them. They are super collectible because they are great looking, available online and at shows, and priced within reason. So they are not out of reach for most of us. And then – I fished them! Garys SLIM Surface and Medium Divers are simply great producers in the NJ waters I fish. You can’t beat their ability to catch the big fish!"
