Anybody ever tried to make these?

Shouldn't be too hard right? I'm thinking maybe a crane swivel will be okay instead of using a BB swivel and then just some wire with a bend at the end run up inside the bait a ways. I'm planning on using them with Zman plastics so it should hold well once in place.

I feel it would be super simple. And yeah i think i would just go with a roller-bearing/crane swivel. I think i slightly slower, more wondering/fluttering action might be desirable on the fall? ??‍♂️. If I have time i’ll whip one up tonight. I’ve been turning out beetle spin style spinners.

i tried it a couple years ago and although i liked the look, it flew out after the 5th cast, and never bothered again. May try again when i get bored.

I used a screwlock screw, not like zmans.

A less expensive way is to use a hitchhiker and a crane swivel.

I made a few with hitchhiker, swivel and small willow blades...screwed into a trig senko.  Never found fish that get excited about them.

That would be great, but I'm going to use them with Zman plastics, so the hitchhiker isn't going to work. 

 

I might try attaching the trailer keeper to a metal post and see if that will stay put.

Well mine looked good, but it survived one fish before it was launched onto the bank. Have to try something else to get them to hold better I guess.
