Just wondering if any body has used the nemire Red Ripper lures. I just bought 2 and will be heading down to Hatteras the 1st week of Oct. Just trying to make sure I have all I might need before I get there. This will be my 1st trip to the OBX. So any other advice you may have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have used them a couple of times in the ocean surf. Being light and current strong, they don't go down far enough for drum to see them. They would work better in the sound where the current is lighter. To get to the bottom in the surf with the spoon type lures +2oz is needed. The spinner type Neimiers are also to light to get in a drums face. I use a 1.5 to 3oz spinnerbait with large colorado(size 6 or 7) blades, silver for sunny days & gold on cloudy days.
