  1. Looking for some more BIG plugs. Specifically OVER 8 inches and weigh between 4 and 8 oz (having a 1321mh built so need these to load it). Preferably metal lips like trollers or pikies but also open to giant darters or needles. Thanks!
  2. Looking for trollers slims and any other model ryan hickey lures I’m good with pikies for now
  3. Anyone using them, in blue or other colors? AS IMITATIONS FOR SOME PREY SPECIES: Pinks and tans have been used in "sorta-cloud" patterns for years on needles and darters to imitate squid. Have you tried that? Results, good or bad, to share? Why wouldn't that pattern approach work well in yellow or gold, both of which would seem to be effective when imitating bunker? (Can anyone else envision swimming a Gold Cloud peanut plug in a month or so?) Why not use tans, browns, or charcoals to imitate resident prey species like tautog or black sea bass, etc.? (Although there are a number of more detailed patterns out there for these species, might the simpler cloud pattern also work well?) TO MINIMIZE ROLLING IN METAL LIP PLUGS: Whether roll is a positive or negative, important or unimportant plug characteristic is being discussed in other threads, so let's not worry it at all here. The fact remains that some builders minimize the appearance of the roll common to some plugs (esp. Dannies and A40s) by eliminating eyes and using colors that are essentially uniform from top to bottom, such as red (or blue, black, etc.) heads on white or yellow bodies, minor vertical contrast (blurple, yellow/white, etc.), in addition to the obvious all-one-color approach. Might cloud patterns (esp. blind ones) suggest motion while not appearing to roll much? HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE: Light-, Medium- and Dark-Blue Cloud patterns (or "Medium Blue Sky / White Cloud Swirl", to use Bazzdozer's nomenclature) were a somewhat common Pichney pattern, both blind and with eyes, as you can see in the Danny images that Russ posted on his Pichney Collection page ("7 1/2" Surface Swimmer Sr." he labeled them). Light Blue Cloud: Medium Blue Cloud: Dark Blue Cloud And here's a 6" Lupo Blue Cloud Troller: (I don't recall ever seeing a Pichney Troller, of any size, in Blue Cloud.) Atom Mfg. Co. did it decades ago on their A40s with their swirls of various blues + white: (I seem to recall seeing at least one Red Swirl A40 at some point, but I'm not positive. Can any of you savvy guys chime in regard these plugs in other swirl colors?) At least one currently-active builder has used blue cloud, as I was reminded today when I saw a post in the BST for Surf Asylum blue cloud plugs (@Dookiespop, I hope you don't mind that I appropriated one of your pics for this post). Looking forward to your comments.
  4. Anybody have any AH trollers lying around? Used preferred but would consider new. Mostly looking for Sr's but would consider Jr's.
  5. Chartreuse Mann's Stretch 30+, 2oz rainbow slope head (unknown builder), 2.5oz green tattoo slope head, 7 inch green mack rapala magnum minnow w/ plastic lip, and 4.5 inch blue mack rapala w/ metal lip. $50 shipped. All payments accepted.
