Ultra Minnow Shakey Bait
« on: 04/14/16 12:56 UTC »

Made from the heavy Ultra Minnow spinner bait.  After molding the spinner bait I cut the wire at the hook tie and bent the loop and added the blade before I closed the loop. No need for a split ring!

Great for slow rolling and the cold water largemouths

Careful that shaddy looking creature could yield a massive flathead out of the Mississippi.

Andy has caught those massive flatheads already. I think he needs to add gar to his list though.

Runs perfect. That deep body really helps it run straight.  I landed a 2lb and a 3.5 so far on it this evening.

I catch gar on nylon flies...an absolute blast.

I airbrushed the black on the lead and then dipped it in CS Coating.

Water temperature is 52 this evening, up from 48 on Sunday.

So you bent that wire to hold the blade from the spinnerbait wire ?

Yes, very nice. If you have a wire bender that makes closed loops, you can put a closed loop on the front too.

Yes..it's the wire that comes off the nose of a spinnerbait. I just did a loop with my small round needle nose with a 3/4 turn to lock it in. I didn't cut the wire completely until I made my turn so I would have leverage.

I ground the end close to the bait with my dremel tool.

I made a few using my Arkie spinnerbait mold and they worked just fine also.
