I literally have one on deck year round. Warmer months are better, and I've caught fish throughout the day with it. I think I have 14 now, all except one are 1/4 oz. Not sure why I have all the colors, I only throw the 1/4 smoke shad
and the majority of the paint on the one's I throw are almost all gone. The Dobyns 684cb is awesome for the smaller YM, with the right reel, you can throw a rope with one. I use 12lb. Big Game, back off the drag and only use the factory hooks when replacing.
