Captain Jimmy Nelson, host of Extreme Fishing Adventures TV, was having one heckuva day offshore recently in Florida waters.
“It was incredible to watch the amberjacks fighting over this VuDu Mullet,” Nelson said. “The most amazing thing of the day was that I was able to catch amberjack, several Spanish mackerel and a kingfish (king mackerel) on just one, and it stayed in great shape.
“This VuDu Mullet is the toughest soft plastic I’ve ever used!”
Nelson also inspected the wire leader attached to the lure and noticed more fraying on the cable than damage to the lure itself.
Nelson’s recent experiences with Egret Baits’ VuDu Mullet made with the new generation of Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE plastics) are not unique amongst anglers using this lure and Egret Baits’ VuDu Shrimp.
Unlike common plastisol in the majority of plastic lures used by anglers, TPE is extremely rugged and durable. Catches upward to 70 speckled trout have been claimed by anglers using just one of the very popular VuDu Shrimp.
The angler is targeting both offshore and inshore species where he is entirely in his element.
Weekly episodes of Nelson’s Extreme Fishing Adventures TV series run on the Sportsman Channel and Fox Sports Network.
In this popular series, Nelson targets offshore and inshore species in his home waters of Florida and the Caribbean. He is always in search of what he calls “the biggest, baddest fish that swim” in these waters.
“And these baits have been extremely effective. I had no idea about the absolutely amazing action the VuDu Mullet makes when it moves in the water.”

The 4-inch Jumbo VuDu Shrimp has also caught Nelson’s eye recently.
Offshore, Nelson focuses on wrecks and reefs to find his precious targets. He uses medium-heavy spinning tackle to catch the largest of these species.
In inland waters just off the western Florida coast, Nelson will often target speckled trout, redfish and other inland species with Wedgetail Mullets of both sizes (3.5- and 5-inches). VuDu Shrimp and the VuDu Mullet in all sizes will also be parts of Nelson’s inshore tackle supplies.
