Knockoff Magic Swimmers

Whatever type of Magic Swimmer you get, Canal rig the 1st belly hook and remove the middle one. Replace the tail hook with a flag or nothing at all. I've had the hook eye pull out of the tail section on the first gen Sebile and I know others who have had the tail sections come off while fighting a big fish...

I bought a bunch of the knock off magic swimmers, and canal rigged them. I tried three different lures, and all three did not swim at all. They turned sideways and skimmed to the surface. Just to be fair, I tried them at slack and mid tides.

Good to know, I'll have to see what mine are. What are they worth?
