Great subject! I guess in my opinion it could break it down to into two catagory's. Number's lures and my personal favorite, size! If you want to catch numbers(not that it wont catch big fish because it deffinatly will)I would choose a Mag Shad every time. I personally have had more high number day's with a "Mag" than any AC. Be it brown's, macks or rainbow. It also works well for me when nothing seems to be working. The Skinny runs a close second. For the mack's I have caught my biggest on real/hatchery trout. The lazyiness of mackinaw can never be overstated and a slow moving planter imitation is a mouthfull that a day's worth of chasing shad or smelt or tui chubs can match. The brown's love the Skinny's though, I've caught all my big brown's on them except one that I caught on a Kokanee. _________________

My best luck so far has been the skinnys for Browns and Rainbows. I've got some 4", 5", and 6" in silver/black and in rainbow colors. They work well.
[I've been listening to Mark Wiza talk about his favorite striped rainbow, so I've got to get some of those soon. (First, I'm doing my taxes on this snowy weekend!) I'm sure Mark can talk about the virtues of that lure a lot better than I can. And, didn't Steve take his big Brown last year with one of those?]
I've also taken a couple good wipers with a 5" or 7" minnow or a real trout.
Out of curiosity... good ole Mark K, the webmeister, is listing the Casitas as his favorite for stripers and LMB. Can you believe that? The rest of us are just reading about this new lure and Mark is already out there putting it thru its paces! _________________ Mark-O

My favorite is the one I started with. It is the Original AC Plug. That lure has caught more fish than the rest if you consider the years it has been out there. On my first cast with it, I caught a 18 pound striper at Pyramid Lake....the 5 inch is a great lure and the 7 inch is also great, maybe the best! The 9 inch caught a ton of stripers and bass and the 12 inch caught a ton of huge largemough bass and stripers..... _________________

Heyyyyyyy People: On the topic of AC Plugs sometimes I find fish need a real wakeing up, suttle and reality are OK at times but if that ain't catching I often go to the opposite side of the spectrum. To achieve this I buy a high grade Prisim Tape and cut it to whatever shape I desire, lightly sand the area where I want to apply it, apply it and then using the wife's hair dryer I blow dry the tape.
Prism Tape can also be used to cover a scratch or nick. ( Pike teeth leave lots of exposed wood ) cover the scratch with clear nail polish and apply Prisim Tape.
Always on the lookout for different ideas I'm wondering how some of you customize your AC Plugs?
