Swimbait Physics

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I wonder about the following:

Assuming that a swimbait gets its s-like swimming action caused by 'vortexes' generated by the sections while moving trough the water,

I wonder if that s-like action -wich normally takes place in a horizontal direction- would also happen in a vertical direction?

I hope this makes sence to anyone... lol

Thnx

Yes, what you describe is possible to achieve in theory. However, The vortices needed to develope the action you mention would be similar to aircraft wing vortices. The traditional crankbait lips generate vortices in which the orientation is dictated by gravity.

There was a posting not long back with a video of a flatfish crank bait which swam in the manner you describe I have tried searching but cannot find it, damn !!!!. It is on the TU somewhere, perhaps someone can help ou in finding it ????

:lol: that's funny , I was thinking that you could achieve that action by placing an horizontal plastic tail along the last segment of the swimbait , never crossed my mind to place the weight on the side of the lure as in the movie :lol:
