Fiber schwimps

Postby Denduke » Sun Jul 08, 2018 7:37 am

A few more "fiber schwimps" from kids hair, 6 mm glass rattles, glass bead eyes, stout hooks and UV resin on the heads. Shortened up a bit for fewer missed strikes.

I’ll bet some fellows here might enjoy a tutorial on how you go about making those shrimp lures?

Tutorial, that's work....it's mostly just magic :shock: :lol:

Posted this might as well here if youse guys can understand it....
Made a tutorial as such

I shortened the originals after missed strikes. The tarpon at BahaiHonda refused it. Lost one on the strike with big cockroach. What was happening on the take they are folding over and fibers hang on hook. I shortened them and resin the head all the way to the hook bend making them work better. Takes about 15-20 minutes to tie cuz waiting on UV to stop tacking up. They are simple really. Tie on the rattle top middle of hook, UV it, tie on legs fore and aft, tie on the eyes, tie lil orange for the gut. Lay the fibers on and 5-6 wraps and whip, Krazyglue. Turn it around in vice tie the tail by wrapping and UV it so no knot to fuss with. Twist tail right and flare it then UV the flare. Trim tail and horn on head. Use brush and Solarez the head and fibers well back some, harden. Sharpie the segments. The melted mono, glass bead eyes made up ahead of time and UV again when torching the head to guarantee.

Goggled "supreme fiber shrimp how too" but I don't dub the bottom or leave loose fibers out the back. No rattle either. Microskiff site may be better way for some

Here's the one I went buy but leave the dubbing off soaks up resin kills the hook bite

Mostly Ponchatrain, Pearl marsh, Lake Borgne, the Tressle. Son in law has bay boat grew up in Slidell. I take the 14'/25 horse OB where and when weather permits. We from Collins, Hburg so don't get to go that often. Got a sister lives in The Pass stay there and fish around when it's calm.

Tried the fiber, glass rattles on some cdads. Gadwall for "claws". One light color for freestone trout streams or reasonable facsimile...
