    Swimbait id

    Do not know how to do the pic thing so here it goes. 3 3/4" long. White. Main body(1 1/2") has small vertical lines cut in it. It is thick like a grub bait. Back half has 3 segments seperated where the bait gets really thin. Has the very defined "V" tail. Has the 3 numbers/letters on the tail only on one side that are "GY6" or OY6. Not really sure. Any suggestions of what brand it may be?

    Don't put them on the back of a vibrating jig, that would be a big mistake

    Had that thing in the boat attached to a spinnerbait that someone lost a year ago at Falls lake here in NC when the BPT was here. When the angler lost the bait he fished another bait a few minutes and left the area and his "posse" went with him. I went over there and got my lure retriever pole out and got the bait. Never fished much Yamamoto baits except senkos.
