Fish Fins

2 posts in this topic

When carving a realistic lure with the fins on it, how much do these fins effect the action of the lure? Do the fins cause the lure to glide more or what? Does anyone have problems with fins such as dorsal fins and anal fins?

Yes, fins do affect the action. They cause a rudder effect and really put a damper in the wiggling.

Here's a new musky lure that I'm working up. This picture is the 3rd version. I'm getting close, but it still doesn't quite suit me. I've reduced the size of the dorsal fins. I figure the read treble hook represents the anal fin.
