That should work very well. You and I have the same liking for weedless streamlined lead heads. Interested to see the final results.

Those hooks in your pic are not Mustad 32824's... Those are 60* hooks and the hooks in the pic are 28-30* leg hooks.

Tanks Bou'Cou, Fellas!

I cooked up this Head with many aspects in mind.

The Shad Head Jig (wire keeper) is killer with action baits, whether swim tail or curl tail, but sways with a straight bait, which isn't natural for a baitfish (in that degree).  The Erie has a lot of inherent stability since the majority of its weight is hung low, and modified to pull at the nose should still produce zero sway with a straight bait because of the inherent stability.

Pulling at the nose will also shed sOme grass the line collects, much better than a head with the line-tie up top.

Pulling at the nose will also keep the head from digging bottom, which is a major plus when bouncing or dragging bottom...a Flounder's demise.

It won't be long nOw.

Owner Wide Gap Plus 3/0 fits the 1/8 oz. cavity well-enough, although a hair snug toward the bottom, it'll pour once it's hot.

OWGP 5/0 fits the 3/16 oz. cavity very well.
