I like the green pumpkin.

I bought this mold and haven't had much success on it.  How are you rigging it?

I just fish it on a small crappie jig and get most of my hits on the fall. I also fish it on a small jig under a bobber for crappies

It's also super on the smallest VMC Spin-shot (drop shot) nose hooked.

i had a 1/32 jig head about 2-3ft under a small bobber. If no ripples were forming from wind Id give it a little twitch. I caught trout, crappie, largemouth, bluegill, an even a hybrid bass all I'm a few hours of fishing it my first time. This was also on a public lake with loads of other people not catching a thing :)

you had to pick the one I don't have a recipe for on purpose didn't you?? :p

It is x2 sweet potato and pearl powder. Maybe a drop of x2 pumpkin seed. Sorry I don't know the exact amount :/

Andy's entire statement is solid info here. To take things a step further personally I just got the finesse drop-shot sinker mold. I have a local lake that sees suspended crappies during the heat of summer and the drop shot technique is something I intend to greatly expand on. This includes using the VMC Spin-Shot hooks.
