Thanks Bob

got it.

Canal B&T special?

 

The plugs in the photo are called Cordells, but their package says the manufacturer is Striper Gear. 

Everyone is loading Cordells now.

 

Sebile is making a small pencil now, rigged with a tuna hook. I was able to load it to 3oz.

funny

we were loading rebels & redfins 30 years ago. 

5" rebel loaded was deadly on fall race fish. 9ft lami 1st gen graphites with 16lb ande tournament green. I blew up a shimano CX8000 with rear drag up there. Didint put enough dacron backing on the spool. after 5 fish the drag got funky then the spool imploded lol. Back to the  daiwa G os SS  after that.

I may not be catching any lobsters the last 2 months but I'm filling my plug bag. this was 1 trap this afternoon 

 

Those all loaded Cordells?

 

I have some Cordells that I loaded up to about 3 3/4oz  with bird shot. I jig them.in the bottom half of the water column and occasionally pull up weeds and mussels from the bottom.

Looks like all the same size rings so I'm thinking it is the same guy.

I thought the factory loaded ones had a big red dot on the sides?

I used one particular Cordell that I loaded for a few seasons.  Caught some impressive fish on it. Just upgraded hardware no canal rigging. 

Smaller sized Cordell loaded to

2 3/8 flies!!
