  1. The proof is in the pudding. Ended up fishing the canal for 3 or so hours yesterday and stopped counting fish it was so hot. Funny thing was my buddy and I were using our loaded/modified swimmers and guess what.... we were the ONLY guys there hooking up. It was every cast, 30in plus fish with the grand daddy coming in at 43+inches. 8 guys to the left and right and nobody but us catching for 3 HOURS. Goes to show timing and right presentation is what matters. Guys were actually walking down to us and asking what we were throwing because they weren't getting a sniff.
  2. My slapping pencil from Norcalkat doing some ditch damage!! This thing casts a mile and works like a dream, very beautiful work. The fish seemed to like it too!
  3. I'd definitely be down if anyone else wants to join up? This swap this is super addicting haha Make another 3 of a new variety, try some crazy paint jobs
  4. Showed my buddy the pencil you made me, I think he wants to make a deal on some of these he made so he can get one too ahahahaha
  5. Sure do, but I think you are missing the point. It isn't torn apart to through wire it. The plug is never disassembled, merely improved. The hook hangers are heated up to allow them to slide out without damage, and there are already holes in the front and rear so the hole is made slightly larger and a piece of stronger SS thru-wire is used to allow more torque to be applied. You can also then choose to load only portions of the plug, such as loading the nose with shot, or the belly which then can be foamed in to make permanent instead of just injecting oil to the whole plug. It is just a creative way to manipulate a favorite plug, and has been done for quite a while now so it's not new by any means. If you like them out of the box, got every right to fish them as they come.
  6. Thanks, yea I'm excited to get it wet. Would be really awesome to get some fall run bass on one of them.
  7. Very true, it is possible. But some would argue the peace of mind is worth more than the chance. Being able to load it is a big plus too, an unloaded factory Redfin or Bomber doesn't cast far in a stiff breeze hahaha
  8. Usually these factory plugs have hook hangers that are poorly designed to catch fish over a certain size and are subject to tearing out. Since the plugs are known producers and have great action, the only solution is to thru-wire them to make them more durable on a higher class fish. Loaded redfins have been known to produce 40 and 50 class stripers, and no way would a factory plug hold up to that size fish. Also, you can add weigh if you want to increase poor casting distance to target those fish that are just out of reach with a factory out of the box plug.
  9. Absolutely, you can make just about any plug a loaded/thru-wired tank

  12. TK copied the wrong list, it was last up to date in Jigmans last post on pg 24.

  15. Yea it just makes that hook up ratio a little better. Plus you could add an inline to the rear loop. That's the beauty of customizing, you can create whatever you want to an already proven producer.
