Default Witchdoctor Teaser

I have been thinking about buying one of the witchdoctor teasers. Has any one ever used one? Are they any count?

Thanks for the replys, but it adds another question. POS because it won't raise fish, or POS because it will crack and get water logged as Midnight Run stated? Is the crack something a little JB Weld can fix?

It you pay that much for them and they break and you have to put JB Weld on them it aint worth it. There are better teaser out there that dont have to be Obama rigged to fish with. JB Weld would only be a temporary fix anyways, if it cracks JB Weld will not keep water out for the life of the teaser then you got a jacked up paper weight.

Yeah I would hate to have to "Obama Rig" something I paid that much money for, they just look awful pretty. Thanks for ya'lls help on keeping me from wasting money.

The only problem I ever had with one was getting eaten and the one I had was solid. Maybe Jeff was talking about one of the crappy knockoffs from Zac.



They get down and wiggle and throw light everywhere, but I'm still partial to a fender chased by a big wide range or a set of 5 or 6 pins.

A pin chain teaser is pretty bad ass IMO as well as a 3 tiered dredge with big plastic shad and ballyhoo on it. Those 2 teasers will raise everything.

I spent about $300 and probably 12 hours rigging one of those about 6 years ago. It was 3 tiers of wire ones with lead in the middle and made of steel. I haywire twisted probably 3 dozen fake hooters on piano wire and thought I was the shit till I put it in the water. About 10 minutes into the first troll a hooter or something stripped off several of the ballyhoo and 10 minutes after that we ran it over a small clump of weeds and it broke off one of the arms.



Damn thing ran like a spiraling umbrella after and never saw the water again.

Why would you even consider running a gimmick like the witchdoctor? The first thing you need to ask yourself is, How am I going to take this thing away from a 400lb Bluemarlin? With that question in mind you should be able to narrow down your selections for a good teaser.
