I just got the Bugs worked out. This Bunker (Menhadden) is a Tissue over Copper foil rendition. It's a 5" long Foamy thru wire cast in, .093 Lexan lip, with 5/6 oz ballast. It's heading for its' new home in Jersey.

The photo is not doing it justice I bet the real thing would have put lots of production lures to shame.
And Husky sharing his technique just shows he's da man with a big heart.

I gotta get one of your lures buddy. Really amazing work! Your monster garage tackle tuts kick butt and are always welcome at the KB. You can upload at anytime and we'll get them posted asap.

Got this report from my Tester. It was the maiden Voyage.
" I started the bunker in the river, first run was with 1/0 trebles on both hangers. Got a 3lb smallie and 2 6lb walleyes on it then got a ferocious hit, after about 5min I saw a huge set of stripes that had to be from a 25lber, then my line went limp. I started reeling in in disgust and realized I still had the plug. When I got her in, the front treble was pulled straight, so I went to a pair of 3/0's, but they killed the action. Then I put a 3/0 on the front and a 3/0 bucktail dressed siwash on the rear and she swam like a dream. 2 more casts and I had a hard hit, and after 10 min I had a 22lber on the rocks. Funny thing was the fish had a nice hole in the other side of his mouth and a wound on his neck that was still bleeding, oddly enough spaced out to the distance of the hooks on the bunker!
Within the next hour I landed 2 more bass, a 12lb and a 16lb, and 3 more walleyes between 4 and 8 lbs. I was fishing 2 hrs on either side of the high tide, and just as I was saying last cast for the 14th time, I got another hit, but it was very lite. I reeled in a herring about 9"long! I dont if it wanted to eat, fight or hump the plug but it hit it. He is still in the freezer waiting to be cut bait ."
