Mr Wiggley soft plastic lures ?

Anyone know if these are still produced?  I remember something last year about the lures. I've been told they are deadly for snook.

    Just found my own answer to the question, I was wrong about the name, It's not Mr Wiggley ,it's Mr Wiffelure,made in Chocoloskee..Ordered some today.

    Very sexy bait, I have caught more redfish on them than snuke.  Just have to learn how to hook 'em right to get the best/natural action out of them.

    They work very well... one of my anglers caught and released a very big snook on one two years ago in Chokoloskee Bay... It was easily more than thirty pounds... on one of my leadheads and a five inch Mr. Wiffle tail... 

     And yes, I need to order more of those tails...

    as Kenny Brown said when he saw the pic... "not many that size in the 10K"... We went to extra lengths to make sure she swam away in good order...  We catch big tarpon on Mr. Wiffle as well...

    That us one super snook, I'm happy with 30-34 inchers lol. Love these fish.

    Doubt we'll ever see one that size again - any time soon.... Every time I tangle with a big girl I always do everything possible to get her back swimming away from the skiff in good order.

    One plastic paddletail that really wiggles is SST Slayer. Last yr a 34" snook on Lemon Drop plus trout love them. Problem is I can't find a retail outlet near Ft Myers so ordering direct. Best colors for me Lemon Drop and Purple Haze.

    mr wiggley is another thing that would probably work real well in a lot of situations salt or fresh water.

    I am going to use the hook set ups on grey beard"s lures on Mr wiffles lures.  Picked some up at ace in Naples.  Hook size 4.0 1/8 ounce weight.  We'll see how they work.  I'll report back
