2 1/2" popper "chasing" a 1" minnow body
Carved from poplar dowel rods, spray paint, paint brush dots, D2T top coat
Used 20 lb mono with 2 loop knots for the leader, im sure there is something better i could use.. Suggestions??
You put a hook on that 1" minnow and I bet you will catch doubles. Maybe triples.
P.S. That color on the little teaser is nearly a perfect bone. I like the classic spotted green chaser, but I would think baby bass.
Must be the monitor in the house. Here in the shop it does look more yellow.
I just watched the video. I think it will p op better when you have an actual cast length of line out. Its pretty hard to get that short sharp snap I like in the space you have there. You need to go fishing with it before you make a huge change I think. Also, sometimes where the line is tied on the eyelet can affect the action. On the tiny poppers I throw a lot I've found that sliding the knot down to the bottom of the eyelet gives a splish and spray. Sliding the knot to the top gives a splunk and dunk. Quite often I have found one or the other works better for the fish.
You could try wire, or braid, i dont really know =) . I have seen a design sortof like this in a bass pro or something but i couldnt find it for the life of me. It was a sliding crank with a sinking spook behind it, for redfish i think. it looked like you fished it like a crank/jerkbait, but stopped and the spook sank below to catch potential followers. it might be fun to try a design like this. I dont know =D . I really like this one! its a cool innovative design that looks like the bass would just hammer. Great job!
