Hey Cyclops, how about some additional information on your "floaters."

 

Give us the type and what size hooks are on them from the manufacturer and what size do you replace them with?

 

Then ask the guys if they have any ideas for you to try with your hook selection.

 

Happy New Year!

Until we get this, my best guess is he's talking about a floating treble hook bait.

Great topwater bait.  You just need to have a good spot for the hooks.   Hence the small hooks.

Old  mind.

 

I use both Rebel 1 5/8 "   and Rapala  1 5/8"  floating lures to catch shiners.  The  standard  # 12 trebles are too big for most baitfish. I can buy a few small trebles.  The tiny trebles reduce shock & early death rates  greatly.

 

I have been using the # 18. But Owner Hooks has a # 20.This spring a full change over to the # 20s used for bait collecting.

Ah I see...

 

When I use to catch shiners I used a size 16 hook.  Just tipped it with bread and I would easily catch a day's worth.

Wow  :cooking-egg-31: 

Are they good with eggs for breakfast?

My older brother would cook up big panfish with eggs for breakfast.

The Walking Turd is a topwater presentation that very few people use these days......Original BIo bait made famous in the movie Caddy Shack.
