  1. Tim; There has been another change to the Familiar Bite. Now packaged in blisters and snack size ziplocks. The brine/salt is now in baggie for freshness and less spilling if brine. I hear Warrens in sodus has a lot of Familiar Bite Sushi Flys in stock as well as the repackaged bait. Have you seen or tryed it yet? Firmer strips. [ Post made via iPhone ] [ Post made via iPhone ]
  2. Matt; Yes you can run behind a spiny or flasher, 11 inch flasher is my personnel favorite. I also run them clean off the rigger. The bait head does not have to match flasher. There is no advantage or disadvantage between the two baits hole or strips, energy dog has its days. Put a slight bend in the bait to get the slow roll. I also run them without a bend. I like to run it as my deepest set away( 41 degree water temp *ish) from the other lures. Have caught big salmon out of temp also. These Baits just catch fish period and usually my biggest. Mark

  8. These Familiar Bite Herring Strips are new to the market this season. Hard to find right now. IMO the are the best out there since the old Rhys Davis Strips. The sushi fly have been around for a few years and twinkles even longer. The strips fit the Rhys Davis strips perfect and the smell fresh and hold up in the water very very well. Mark

  16. Matthew it is no rumor. I fished them during the Niagara Pro-Am and Orleans. The produced the 2nd largest Salmon I caught on Niagara big fish friday 26 pounds and some change. They also were a hot item in our spread all four days. I heard Narbys in Oak Orchard may have them in stock. One shipment arrived last weekend but it sold out fast. Sharon at Narbys should be getting more in REEL soon. I mainly used them in Rhys Davis heads, Familiar Bite Sushi Flys and Twinkie style rigs. GOOD STUFF!!!! Click On Pictures for a LARGE VIEW
