Default Delivery System

I had couple ideas of things that might work for redís and trout this winter. The 1st is more a delivery system than a lure. Itís the swing head. Itís not all that different than a pompano head, football head or standup head but a slightly different wrinkle. The concept is to texas rig you favorite plastic, cast it and let it hit the bottom and reel it back at a steady pace. The head bangs along the bottom and the plastic has more freedom because of the articulated connection. What it like is it really tells you a lot about the bottom. One of the things Iíve struggled with is finding the oyster beds. You know when your on em with this system!
In a limited trial I think this has potential. but Iím down to my last head and it needs more work. My one issue I have is the length of the 1st segment of the hook should be longer. If the plastic extends up over eye it limits the ďswingĒ of the lure.
Are any of you guys working with this system?
The 2nd was a bass plastic that would look like a crab or shrimp. I brought a couple bags of skirted twin-tail grubs along. Itís been a slow year for me but when I got around some active fish they bit it. The redís pile drove em on the bottom. I have to add I havenít found a bass plastic that hasnít worked in the rivers and bayís Iím fishing. Not saying go buy a bunch, just encouraging everyone to try some these proven fresh water baits. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Here's a hook that might work for you:

Charlie Brewer's tackle and lures have been pounding fish for decades.

There are several "Slider" heads available in 1/16, 1/8, and 1/4 oz..

Some are on Bronze hooks, some are Black Nickel, in 2/0 and 3/0 sizes.

They make a tube-craw that could be a crab / crustacean substitute:

With your rigging, it would be easy, and probably productive, to hang a piece of Fishbites crab flavor bait on the hook, under the plastic.

I've been using those heads with great success. I replace the hook on a Savage shrimp with that swivel head contraption, and the fish love it... especially flounder.

Add a 12-16" Red shad worm and you have a Tennessee River killer!
First Red I ever caught was on a square bill in a tree top bass fishing!

Brian, mine are home made but most of the major tackle manufacturers offer them. I'de suggest looking at Tackle Warehouse on-line. They'll have them all to look at.
