Comfortably Numb

Suspending Wiggle Wart

Recommended Posts

So I drilled a 1/4: hole in the bottom of a Wiggle Wart today (not Pre Rapala). I added five standard copper BB's and epoxied the hole shut. Suspends pretty well in my fish tank. Not perfect but should trigger some winter bites while sitting there. I have not fished it yet.

Outstanding.

 

One of the BASS pros told me what VanDam does to his crankbaits which I found to be very interesting.

 

Yes, he uses the ones he hacks but he modifies them other than for changing out the hooks.

 

I swore not to tell anyone what VanDam does but it was very interesting to hear about his double secret changes he makes to his baits.

What type of epoxy are you using when filling in the hole? I've actually never heard of doing this to help a bait suspend. Very unique. I've heard of adding split rings to some baits in the front to help them suspend better but never drilling a hole and adding weight to the inside of the lure

I cut a small circular piece of cloth (old rag or T-shirt) slightly bigger than the hole I drilled. I use 5 minute epoxy and sqturate the cloth with it and cover the hole. Easy enough.

 

Before I found the suspending Baker squarebills (which I love) I did this with shallow squarebills like Acadamy CRS/CRM and SK 1.5's. Deadly in spring and winter.

I have some of the pre rapala suspending warts, they're really good in cold water.
