Cross between jig and a countdown?

1 post in this topic

I want to make a countdown bait in the shape of a blue gill, that can be bounce on the bottom like a jig. There is a swin bait like this but i want to try it out of wood and make it a little smaller. I am interested if anyone else has tried this.

i am thinking to weight it on the bottom of the nose with a small lip for a little wobble when sinking, lifted and/or jerked(or would a flat face like a rattle trap do the same?) Line tie would be high on the head or on the nose. I want the hooks to stick up away from the bottom to reduce snags. The tail would be a "marabou tied" treble or weedless single to give the simulation of movement while bait is feeding or dieing on the bottom.
