swrilchaser, what do you have to cut a lip slot? you'll need to pick a lip to use...that would be a good sized pikie...maybe a #3 pikie lip or a sm moore's or salty's pikie lip. pikies are midslotted :D

I'm going to cut it with either the bandsaw or a back saw. haven't cut the slope or the slot yet because I still need a lip. It's sort of a side project since I'm addicted to Nike swimmers right now.

I'll probably end up doing the same.  I figured a would take the bulk of the slope off with the band saw and just slope it with the drum sander.

 

Just use the drum sander.

I'm gonna get in on this...been wanting to take a stab at a pikie. Probably won't get started for a bit as I'm still chasing fish, but this could be a lot of fun.

 

One question...what is the desired action I'm looking for? I have never fished one...

 

Thanks

Depends some on the builder. Each builder will have a little different idea of what they want. Some do sub surface, most set them up to wake on top. This is one of my 3 oz pikies:

I'm going to have to deal with this issue myself. I rarely fish anything bigger than an 40jr because I hate having too many hooks. Even 2 trebles and a siwash concern me. A Pikie certainly has a lot of surface area so I get the reasoning for 2 belly hooks. How is his single hook Pikie setup? One hook upfront? Dead center?
