    So I'm out working today & discovery I don't have my earplugs. I open my tackle bag & take out the 4 in. green twisters & bite off 1/2 inch (the round end) and stuff them in there. They worked great! Very comfortable. A bag of 20 costs about $3.00 ..........plus there's lot's of colors to match just about any rig/uniform under the sun ;-)

    Yeah, I know the type you're talkin about. These are'nt like that.....these are my old go-to lures but without the "slime." Just straight up translucent, 4 inch, lime green twister style baits put out by Gotcha. They've got the little "bumps" or "ribs" so they stayed in place great!

    Yep, exactly.........maybe even the style "impregnated" with fish goo or whatever. Yuck. Nope, these are just plain ole rubber ;-)

    You might be a Redneck if you are mowing your yard with fishing lures hanging out of your ears.

    lol, lol.....man that's a good one. Didn't think about it that way.......I guess if the shoe fits I should slip it on ;-) I swear I couldn't have found a better short order substitute though. Kept the noise out about as well as the foam plugs I normally use.
