1. An artificial fishing lure, comprising:

  • an oval-shaped body comprising a proximal end, a distal end, a top surface, a bottom surface, and a plurality of semi-rigid ribs circumscribing said body, wherein said top and bottom surfaces of said body each have a slight indentation that extends a portion of the length of said body along a central area thereof, wherein said ribs are angled towards said proximal end of said body so that when a fish bites down on said body said ribs will engage the fish'"'"'s mouth to prevent the lure from being expelled from the fish'"'"'s mouth, and wherein said ribs are impregnated with salt so that when the fish bites down on said body said ribs are flexed to expel salt into the fish'"'"'s mouth thereby inducing the fish to hold the lure in its mouth;

    a thin, substantially horizontal, oval-shaped tail comprising a proximal end, a distal end, a top surface, and a bottom surface, wherein said proximal end of said tail is attached to said distal end of said body and said top and bottom surfaces of said tail are rough to engage the fish'"'"'s mouth to prevent the lure from being expelled from the fish'"'"'s mouth;

    opposing thin, substantially vertical, teardrop-shaped wings, each wing comprising a proximal end, a distal end, an external surface, and an internal surface, wherein said proximal end of each said wing is attached to said distal end of said body; and

    an elongated member attached to said external surface of each said wing and extending in a substantially horizontal direction therefrom, wherein each elongated member comprises a proximal end attached to said external surface and a distal end extending distally of said distal end of said wing.
