  1. If one person was always right he/she would own the fishing industry, but that is not the case!! We all have had great years followed by not so great years.... as conditions change from year to year so does the fishing.

  2. Like most opinion pieces put out by fisherman I believe some of it holds merit but a lot of it is just opinion biased on his fishing style My opinion attraction is based on flicker/flash, noise/vibration and overall visibility true triggering traits are that show weakness/opportunity or create the fish to fear a loss of opportunity. Weakness is a pause, fall, or small twitch showing struggles to move. Drawing on a now or never response is a long pull/jerk, variation in speed and veering to the side Above is the main factors I consider when creating a lure and what I choose to fish with. Water color is acknowledged but I also consider how close my presentation will be to the fish. For example I have caught lots of bass in muddy water flipping dark color lizards into cover. I have also had great results trolling Lakers with bright noisy crank baits in crystal clear water One I am dropping on the fishes nose the other I am drawing fish in from a distance There is a ton of other factors I consider but it would be writing a novel lol We all have our opinions and in the end if it works keep doing it. If not change something

  3. Watched this old Doug Hannon video the other day. In particular the first part where he is talking about attraction and triggering qualities of lures and what he prefers and why. Curious what others here who build lures think of this and do you apply the methodology and if so how to the baits you build. Doug Hannon - The Bass Professor - Catching Big Bass (1986) Youtube wont allow me to embed the video but this is what it is titled if you wish to check it out.

  5. its interesting. i have experienced attraction and triggering in several fishing situations, couple examples... 1. jig fishing - the jig is both an attraction and trigger lure that can be manipulated by the user. specifically talking vertical jigging here. large aggressive movements to attract, and small jiggly movements to trigger 2. musky glide baits - these are great attractors, fish love to come and check them out. if you are not moving fish a glide bait is a great way to see a fish. and they do trigger and catch fish as well but attracting is their specialty. This all got me to thinking a bit more about making baits. I generally focus on lures as tools. To get a certain depth, to get through weeds, a certain sound, speed etc...more of if it moves it's food approach So the video got me to thinking even with my lures as tools approach to bait making, i should probably also be paying attention more to attraction and triggering as tools as well, and is something that i might be able to dial into a bit more.

  6. I did not watch the video, but Mr. Hannon was known as a pretty smart feller. The terms attraction and trigger are not new for sure and I do believe that they have a great deal of merit. Larry Dahlberg was known to use the terms frequently on his show "Hunt for Big Fish", and his presence in the Salt Water Hall of Fame, and the Freshwater Hall of fame lend him credence. Still, opinion is opinion and until we can hold a conversation with fish, we will never know. Hillbilly has explained the various attractions and triggers pretty much like I view them. Anecdotal observations on may part are crankbaiting than just bumping cover or bottom and as soon as it clears the obstruction fish hit it, far more often than the straight retrieve. I hate trolling, but have been known to do it. The numbers of times I have had a line in the water and pulled it forward with my rod than let it drift back just to have it hammered are countless. I can't even count the number of times I see fish follow a presentation that won't hit, unless I do something a little different in the retrieve.....sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. On the next fish, if it worked, I repeat, if it did not, I try a different "trigger". If I had to hang my hat on something, I would personally agree that attraction and trigger are different, and important. I also, believe, for the most part, a lure is designed to attract, the fisherman creates the trigger within the limits of the lure. Still, often attraction is all that is necessary. Sometimes attraction and trigger are the same thing.

  7. Im starting to make some Cheburashka Lead Sinker molds and got the ide: freeze the soft clay down before i take it off..and yes it comes clean off. (the red ball mold was a mess so I stuck the clay back on and after a freeze comes clean off too.)
