Default New Lure Company: Down South Lures looking for suggestions

Hey folks, I am new to this board and fairly new to the Florida market. Currently, we have a strong following in Texas with our hybrid paddle tails, but we have recently picked up some momentum in the Florida market by having some shops carry up our line of plastics.

I could use some local knowledge from you guys, by suggesting what colors we are lacking, and what you would like to see us make in our next run of plastics. After a week or two I will randomly pick two people that replied to this thread with sugggestions and send them some sample packs of our various colors. Take a look and fire away.

Try this lure (jig)out. Made it today. It's for catching Cobia. It's called Yellow Fever.

Hi there and welcome to the forum! I looked at your product line and it looks nice for starters. In the jig heads I would like to see a brite to medium green, blue and chrome. That magic grass plastic is good but I prefer a little brighter green, something to look like a greenback shad. Thanks for letting us have some input!!

Ditto on the white with red tail, but I'd really like to see a silver metallic body with a red tail... I think that would look pretty good and maybe look like a bleeding bait. The snook down here in Cuba seem to chase what I'd call glass minnows back home in Florida and they all look really silver to me.

Something to mimic pogies. I like a light green back along with a silver belly and a chartreuse spot on the belly near the head of the bait.

Welcome to the forum.
In looking at your product line, I was just wondering how durable your soft plastics are - any comparison to the Strike King or Z-Man elazitech? Are you going to be adding any more styles to your inshore saltwater baits? Are you mainly Internet based sales or do you have some local (panhandle area) based retail outlets?
Thanks in advance for any additional info on your products... I'll have to get some to try out.
Mike
