D.O.A. (stands for, Deadly On Anything) Baits are awesome! I fished with nothing but live or frozen shrimp for a while and other live or dead baits. Then my buddy got me into these D.O.A. baits. Sense then I have used them quite a bit with lots of luck over the last year or so. I love how sturdy the plastic baits are. Plastic baits are a soft plastic similar to rubber.
