small glass minnow imitation for big toothy fish, with a velcro addition...
The lure is the 3" Flash J on small jigheads, 2.5-g with size 4 hook, or 2-g and 1.5-g with size 6 hook
The same internal mylar flash strip transmits purple-pink
Begin with a Mustad Double Trap stinger hook, this is size 4, tied with 10-lb single-strand titanium wire using a "knotless" snell knot.
The double stinger hook has a 3rd smaller and reversed hook for planting in the swimbait.
bringing back up the old Flash-J + stinger hook post.
This has been a good lure, night-fished fished as a tandem, glow lure body up front, with the stinger on the blue rear lure, has landed doubles with seatrout, redfish and ladyfish.
Seems the reds always go for the glow.
Filling a Japan cart, one of my recent close-out finds was a buzzbait safety pin made for these lures (or any jighead) - tossed in the cart for $3
Something else added to that cart, these amazing Smith split-ring tweezers that for the first time let me work #1 and #0 split rings (and will cover the split-ring gambit to offshore) - $6.73
Took one of the #0 split rings I removed from a finesse plug lure eye, spread and twisted it over the safety-pin wire. Clinched a piece of leftover 20-lb braid, and snelled a double-trap stinger hook. Drop of super glue before final tightening the braid wraps.
looks like a pretty good finesse buzzbait, especially for the deep clear no-motors reservoir we kayak locally.
Since I brought up the split ring tweezers, a range of finesse plugs I swapped the size 14 and size 18 trebles for single salt hooks, size 8 to 4.
The Megabass Dog-X is included for size comparison, bronzed hooks swapped for VMC size 4 salt trebles, and a 3/16 oz YoZuri Pins minnow on bottom.
Added the spoons with stingers just because they're pretty.
