I want to build a lure aprox 1.5"-2.5" long for a diving depth of about 16 feet. The water runs perfectly for a 3/4 oz jig with a 2" soft bait.
this one does the job :
but , because of the long lip it has an aggressive action , also I don't want a lipless bait involved cause in the area on the bottom is a sudden change of depth from 5 feet to 16 feet and I want the lure to be placed exactly at the 16 feet depth ( the lipless will get carried away ). No trolling involved also.
So , the question, is there someone who had an experience with this kind of stuff or maybe someone who can take a guess about how can I place a small lure at such high depth using a not so long lip? ( think I can attenuate the aggressive action with some lead placed near the tail)
