These replacable rubber bodied lures with reusable jig heads look like a reasonably priced alternative to storms.Has anybody tried them.DOA has a web site with info.

The guys down in Florida (west coast) swear by DOA lures...especially the DOA shrimp for snook, trout & reds when the fresh shrimp supply is low or they just want to go artificial.

The Terroreyes are a good lure that pre dates the Storm lures by several years. I thought they might take off and stocked some. Unless DOA is selling them a lot cheaper than they were they definately aren't a cheaper alternative.

They also don't have the action or color of the Storm. If you want a better price and as good or better product take a look at the Tsunami lures. The only problem I have with these lures is that they keep bringing out new and better looking additions to the line and I am about out of room to stock them

The D.O.A. TerrorEyz Lure is the world's first lure that makes eye contact with fish. That's right, our special Holographic Eyes make fish attack because the eyes shoot out flashes of reflected light. The hidden lead head hook design makes the lure swim correctly every time and the attacking fish never feels the hard head. Surrounded by the super strong soft plastic vinyl body, the lead head hook is snag proof. The nose of the lure bounces off the rocks and other submerged structures. Fresh and salt water fish go crazy over TerrorEyz. Original TerrorEyz are available in freshwater (1/0) or saltwater (2/0) hooks.
The Terroreyz imitates a minnow in the water, it will catch any fish that will eat a live minnow i.e. snook, trout, wall eye, Red fish, Tarpon, flounder, cat fish, pompano, large mount bass, stripers, lady fish, blue fish, white bass, rooster fish, dorado, spanish mackerel you name it this lure will and has caught every species of fish that I can name.

The Terroreyze is the world’s first lure that makes eye contact with fish. That’s right, our special holographic eyes make fish attack because the eyes shoot out flashes of reflected light. The hidden lead head hook design makes the lure swim correctly every time and the attacking fish never feels the hard head. Surrounded by the super strong soft plastic vinyl body, the lead head hook is snag proof. The nose of the lure bounces off the rocks and other submerged structures. The way the lure is designed it will start to vibrate and create a swimming motion as you retrieve it. The Terroreyze is best fished in four feet of water or more, due to the design of the lure if you fish it in shallow water you will have to retrieve it fast to stop it from snagging on the grass. When fishing in deeper water, if you are standing on a dock, fishing pier, sea wall or from a boat, cast out the Terroreyze and let it fall to the bottom they start a steady retrieve with a slight (twitch retrieve – twitch retrieve). This will give the lure the action it needs to catch fish. If you are fishing under a bridge where there is a swift current tie off to one of the pilings if you are allowed or anchor as close to the bridge as you can. The ideal situation is to slow your drift with a trolling motor. Whichever method you use the key is to use the terroreyz with the 3/8 oz. head and cast in up current and let it fall to the bottom, taking in just enough line to keep the slack out of your line let the current take the lure past the boat all the while you are bouncing the bottom. As the lure passes the boat and the lure moves to the back of the boat you will have to let some line to keep the lure on the bottom. Remember you are bouncing the bottom all during this operation. If you are fishing for tarpon with the terroreyz the key is to cast the lure just in front of rolling tarpon and let the lure fall with the fish. This method of tarpon fishing works with all of our lures.

There not bad, but they dont compare in realism to whats out right now, One major thing is that the hooks suck, they'll bend real easily, Now the the DOA shrimp on the other hand....kick azz lure, gotta change the hooks though for sure, Mustad Stainless steels work great...Ive caught tons of fish on them, there not just for Florida ;)

Was watching a show on OLN Fri night, "Addictive Fishing" or something like that.

Anyway, this was the feature lure as the guest was the President of the company. They were fishing for Tarpon under some bridges in Fla. and landed some real nice fish. Was also cool as they hooked these monsters, manuvering the boat through and around the pilings to land the fish. A real team effort. Interestingly they were not using any rod action to work the lure, just casting into current and letting it drift. The host made the comment many times that the President stressed NO ROD MOVEMENT, let the current do the work and that was the tactic that worked.
