The ORIGINAL, (Often copied, but never duplicated) SQUIRT SQUID is soft, but no too soft. Amazing action and fish catching ability. The most successful lure for Giant Tuna, it produced the largest Tuna on rod and reel in the U.S.A. of 1,228 LB. They also make great SPREADER-BAR rigs and DAISY CHAINS. Use the 6" and 9" SQUID DAISY CHAINS for Sailfish and smaller game fish, and the 12" SQUID DAISY CHAINS for Tuna. Multiple Work!
