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.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
