    I just happend to get one of these in mint shape from a buddy a 5" les davis cut plug herring lure, looks pretty decent, ive done a little reading and some guys say they work others like all of us tried them once and never used them again.. lol

    so anybody on here had any major luck with these lures before??

    I do know that they are somewhat collectible as well

    I’ve never fished a plug before, but this one looks good. Nice shine and natural looking. I would really like to try one so I can fight a fish without a flasher.
    FB 84 could you please post a pic of your “new” Len Davis? Let us know how they do!

    I love em.....Last fall I was able to buy 10 from places like ebay and such. I do like to troll them between 1.8 and 2.3 mph. I generally like to use the 4" but I do have a couple 5"s. I was not on the island when they first came out, and from peoples comments, they were a little more popular than the Charlie White, Ultimate lure, lol. I always have one rod fishing with a proven lure, and the other for experimenting. When I pulled out one of these to try, I was not disappointed. My best day last year using the cut plug, I caught 9 springs on a 4" cut plug. Give it a try, it has great action, and its not one of those that you put down to try, then can't wait to try something else. good luck and have fun.

    Awesome colour combo. That has a few 70+ pounders in it!

    Do you use a dummy fasher on the cannonball with plugs or just use it by itself?

    you can for sure to attract the fish up to it.

    Perfect, thanks! I like the way they end the write up:

    “The way it catches fish will make you mighty glad you had the good judgement to get one.”

    I think that there is a knock off of the said plug called a true roll. The other one pictured is a brads bait super cut plug. It has it's days and i always keep a couple on board just in case lol

    All you lucky people that get to fish in other areas where there is so much salmon that you can fish with things other then anchovies.

    So I emailed Misty River Tackle in Terrace and they do have stock of these-in a twist of fate the closure of Wholesale Sports and subsequent unpaid invoices has left the manufacturer in a tough spot who knows how long he'll be able to hang on.
