tuning plastic lip swimmers

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

There are a few things depending on the plug.

Plastic body and plastic lips:

1) Slight to moderate change - Hooks & hook sizes.

IE: 16A Bombers - lose the middle hook and go with 2/0 VMC.

replace the tail hook with a dressed siwash.

2) More moderate change - loading a plug

Adding water, mineral oil, or BB's to a plug. I think if you do a search you will get lots of info on loading Bombers and red fins etc.

3) "Do not try this at home change" take some plastic off the lip with sand paper.


Wood plugs with plastic lips.

IE: Rapala or, one of my favs, Nil Master Invincible - Hooks & Hook sizes.


Hope this helps.



A Curmudgeon's reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They're neither warped nor evil at heart. They don't hate mankind, just mankind's absurdities.
