Tackle Making

Question

lawman

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.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
