These plugs work like any metal lipped swimmer with a side to side wobble and roll that leaves a great wake on the surface. Some folks prefer no roll in a swimmer, I disagree. Most often a dead or struggling bait fish will be on its side thus the eye down action of a swimmer that has some roll. The trick to fishing these is to fish them SLOWLY. As you can see I make these in a relatively standard shape. The river herring pattern is what I call a "THIN SWIM". When the river herring are running this pattern is quite productive in the vicinity of a known run. The tail section is noticeably thinner than the standard style thus giving it a bit more tail action. In my experience ALL BLACK, ALL WHITE and ALL YELLOW are the go to colors day or night, with black being the night-time first choice, and white being #2.

Dick & Seth, Monster Stripers

I have always enjoyed fishing with wooden plugs mainly because that was all that was available when I was a youngster. Like most fishermen and women I am not opposed to using a lure made out of just about anything short of explosives. However custom-made lures are still my absolute favorite with which to catch fish. Whether it be fly, spinner or wood there is much more satisfaction in the catch when made by my own hands. I use the best components that I can find. These plugs will eventually show teeth marks and hook swing. As a fisherman I refer to these marks as MOJO. When a plug has MOJO it has been catching fish!
