Bottom view/snug skirt

A bottom view of the "dead minnow" type pad walker , .......furnished a little indention to spit water forward . The "quick skirts" lay snug around the lurebody whilst casting , in conjunction with the ballast being located at the rear part of these lures , they make up for an excellent casting performance . greetz , diemai

They both look really good.

How much do they weigh?

I'm asking because I considered trying something like those, but was afraid the big hook sitting so high would make the lures turn over and snag.

Have you fished them yed?

Hi Dieter, those look good. I like the dead minnow job. I have made a few of those baits with the big hook turned up. I use a 5/0 spinnerbait hook. I can tell you one good thing about them. you can crash it into a brush pile and just keep on reeling most of the time. It usually does not hang up or snag.

Thanks a lot , friends !

Mark , they are all individually balanced to float up somewhat tail down . These 3/0 spinnerbait trailer hooks are not that heavy . Will make a bath tub video during the coming days and explain a little more there .

Wont fish them before coming May , ....no pads anymore , all decayed , ......and closing time commences in 10 days , anyway .

John , ....I know , .....I have made similar lures years ago , even threw one into a tree before , .....and I still have it !

Stan , ....I guess that metal skirts might be rather counterproductive , LOL !

Thanks again , folks , ...greetz, Dieter
