The forgotten Beetle Spin
You know how you all of a sudden decide to fish a lure you haven't used for years and have no clue why? Well, last year I decided to try the Beetle Spin one day and found it does catch fish!

I would have thought that the stiff wire harness would detract fish from biting. Guess not seeing as how the lure has caught over 30 panfish.
