The lure he was using is called a yozuri 3-D fingerling. You can get them at fishing tackle unlimited or on the internet. But take DPGs advice and go with the rapala husky jerk. It's about half the price and teh hooks are much better. If you do decide to get the yozuri, be sure to change the hooks out w/ no. 8 3X hooks or you'll lose a lot of fish. Trust me I've done that already and it gets really frustrating. I fish the pier quite a bit, if you have any other questions feel free to shoot me a pm. Later, B
Yo-Zuri 3D Fingerling The finely detailed "scaled" finish of the suspending 3D Fingerling is enhanced by an internal strip of highly reflective prism tape that provides a strike-provoking 3Dimensional effect. A pair of over-sized eyes and set of molded-in pectoral fins add to the lifelike appearance. Steel balls located inside the Fingerling rattle and vibrate on the retrieve and assure maximum casting distance. The suspending 3D Fingerling will dive to a depth of 6 feet and is most effective worked with a jerk-twitch retrieve. Suspending, 2-3/4", 1/4 oz.

it was lipped. yeah that husky jerk looks really similar.
im gonna try those and the rat-l-traps next time. thanks!
do any of these lures work well when wading during the day?
I've never used a husky jerk, though I like the looks of it and might just have to pick up a few and give them a try. I do throw rattle traps on a regular basis, chrome/chartreuse, and they work well on trout in deeper water.
