Its just a bit a of a play

Tue, 2007-11-06 14:50

Its just a bit a of a play thing at the moment Spess to test if the concept works.
Its only made out of small gauge gal fencing wire and I expect it to get trashed after its first use, but it will bend back to shape. If successful I will use some stainless tig wire.
It would be quite simple to fit whatever size bean sinker you require under the squids but I plan on fishing this a little differently.
I have always fished with what I call a stinger out the back which like your driftbait is a set line further behind the boat while drifting. I use a heavy sinker and about 60cm have a take off of about 2 meters to the hooks. This gives me a big bait free swimming close to the bottom.

I plan to substitute the bait for this lure. If the drift is fast I will keep it out the back but if it is slow I will shorten the line to the hook and place it directly down and allow the rocking of the boat to work it.

Thats the plan anyway. If it works I will post up the pics.

Excellent Idea Noha

I would give that a very high probability of nailing a fish first drop.

Just make sure your sinker is ona slightly lighter line class so if it gets snagged you don't lose all your hard work.

I love catching fish on stuff I have made myself.

Patent

Tue, 2007-11-06 15:56

Might have to get yourself onto a patent if it works well! Could be a few dollars in it as a result of thinking outside the box. If plastic crabs and slabs of metal work, then why shouldn't a spinner??

that thing will work no

Sat, 2010-08-07 09:59

that thing will work no probs, just the octopus jigging around the bottom will entice them to take it, made a similar thing to that myself a while ago(minus the wire jigging for bonito) they went nuts.
