Tackle Making

I am trying to make a lure patterned after the Double Cowgirl. Can anyone tell me how the "flashaboo" is attached to the wire shaft? Is there a collar under that stuff?

I don't have one handy but I believe that they use a chrome weight that has a recess for attaching skirt material with a piece of surgical tubing. I've used that weight and small zip ties to build mine.

I myself would contact the guys at Thorne Brothers and see what they would suggest. Another idea would be to contact the people at Stamina inc. They sell all the stuff for making lures like that. I would think they would have the best ideas.

I think what you are looking for is called a conehead. If Thorne Brothers doesn't have them then try Netcraft; product number 360-110-002.

      Got out today and the fish seemed super negative. I was really hoping for raining day bite

      IMO, check with High Banks, they seem to be hithing in perch,  eyes, and a few pike.    They are on FB, and have a good website.

      Hello all, we are planning a trip to the V this year. Never been before. Havent been to MN since 1979, White Iron Chain. We will be after SM, LM and pike, with SM being the main target. I have gone through this whole thread reading all the posts I could find about any of those species. Thanks for all that info. We are looking at a June trip and would like to hit some smallies on the beds. Cpr only. All of our vacations lately have been post spawn, (Lake St Clair MI).      I saw early in the thread Ace saying first 2 weeks of June for the SM spawn. Then a post from a couple of years later asked about the 3rd week of June. Someone else mentioned that time could be pre-spawn to spawn. Just wondering what the last couple of years have been like.    I figure June is gonna be good anytime, but we would want to see if we can time it just right.    We are coming from OH, 14.5 hours. Have our own boat, 16 ft. Pro V  Tracker with a 40 horse. Looking to stay at a place across from Niles Bay. I like the central location and the not so wide open waters as compared to further east.    Any opinions or tips will be greatly appreciated. Hope you guys can get some good ice fishing in! Thanks!
