I've got grayling on them. In lakes. Strip-pause beneath an indicator, well off the bottom. I have no idea what that imitates. We were getting skunked and I just figured the graylings out west had never seen one, so I gave it a shot. Good thing I had extras cuz all my buddies tied em on and we had a blast. I have no theory beyond ... it works.

I have always assumed the pink represents that weird pinkish orange color of a dead scud. They also are fantastic for catching sunnies. Put them on as a dropper and you can't seem to keep you line on the water they hit so fast.



This.

I was at a local lake, just casting a new rod I got for a trip that was coming up, and I forgot to bring a fly box. I did have an old Pink Squirrel that was stuck in the visor of my truck. So I ripped it out of the visor, tied it on, and proceeded to slay Sunnies. I was gobsmacked on why Sunnies would go for it, but they did.

I've yet to find a panfish that didn't go nuts for it. Gills, sunnies, crappie, perch you name it.
