sea pony

I got tired of using 1mm Mono as a belly-spinner extention for large fuzzy jigs and finally ordered some pony and sea horse molds. Here are the first two ones, 1/4t and 3/8th on 2/0 Matzuo sickle and 3/0 Gamakatsu Jig22.

Tried to get somewhat close to A.F.`s motoroil mix but couldn´t help ending up in the sandy/copper corner again. The sparse holo glitter doesn´t really show in the picture. Found that the regular stuff from the craft shop works just fine.
BTW I found out the hard way that shrink tube ist best to be removed while its still hot and soft and not after the baking Rolleyes

Gonna take these ones out for a ride this afternoon, see what the cod have to say to them Big Grin

RE: sea pony
Thanks everybody!

Just came back from the beach - far more than 30 cod in just one evening of fishing. Only three keepers, though, but that´s normal at this time of year. It was whicked: a sickle on the sounder - drop the lure - wham! Or just a nibble at first - another drop - wham!
Other boats saw me catching, came by, left again... I think I got myself another pattern. I like that the blade is far less vulnerable to algae and debris getting stuck in it than the propeller, which makes it a good choice for slow days when the fish are bottom-feeding small stuff. I was literally dead drifting in a dead drift, no wind, no current, just myself inevidably rocking the boat and the fish still went for the other lure on the rod sticking in the holder. Nice!

Very nice jigs and GREAT results!
Never say, “It’s good enough to catch fish”, because fish eat worms and marshmallows…you want to be better than that. Practice until you can do it right. - Charlie Craven
