Do Conrad plugs float at rest?

While continuing the never-ending fish cave cleanup, I found a handful of Conrads (I've never fished any Conrads), including built by BM, John Hanecak (skinny Conrad) and others, so I tossed them into the bucket of water to see how they sank.

 

As you can imagine, I was very surprised to see that a deep-swimming plug floated.

 

I'll take them to a local tidal river to see how they behave in current, which I'll grant you might be a whole different story.

 

Looking forward to your inputs, as always.

Yes they are broken send them to me ASAP to dispose of :) but seriously  they do float and dig in current ...you can also tune them up to fish in flat water as well if you want it to swim a foot or two down ....

I knew that i'd get at least one smart-azz response!

:witty:

 

Guess I'll have to test swim them soon.  (Who knows, you might find a package of MLs at your door soon.)
