Been using Case plastics for over 10 years. Friend of mine used to be a dealer. I have a little short of a lifetime supply (probably 30 lbs.) of my favorites.
Their Magic Sticks (big and little) are what I use over Senko's.
Paddle Stick is a great finesse bait.
The larger Hellgi's caught my biggest Eyes in Canada last year.

mister twister makes plastic helgies too. those are what I have. I'm sure they are no better than the case product, they look the same. I have them in black, black w/ red metal flake and a dark kinda pumpkin seed color.

I agree,,, what is the point on using live Helgies?? Leave em in there for the smallmouth forage natural!!!Green Pumkin seems to work best around the area, Live bait fishing is for lazy peoples. And who really uses a bobber anyway.. Come on people

You haven't witnessed the fall Fox River crappie slaughter using bobbers. The bait: plastic helgie pieces. Learned it from Ed. Right up until the river freezes over when the "conventional" wisdom says minnows and larvae are a needed for crappies in the ice-cold water, the plastic helgies drive them bonkers. It's almost as fun as artificials for Weiner Dog Park perch.

WOW I stand corrected then,,Sounds exciting can you tell me more?? Any smallies ever??I NEVER use a bobber not even a slip rig,,The guys would give me or anyone else **** over that, But I am open if it puts fish in the boat with ARTIFICIAL BAITS.. Live bait is cheating!!!! Unless it's with the kids

Previously posted, but...

Late season --- No live bait ---- Only soft plastics --- Mostly under a bobber
