    Nice job Toadfrog!!! Ok, so we have to talk...I want one or two! If you can, I'd like mine to resemble Menhaden..AKA Bunker. Here is a pic of what Bunker looks like.

    I one of Larry Dahlbergs shows (hunt for big fish) he showed how he made safety pin type spinners out of bicycle spokes. He used them on the huge jigs they use for Halibut up in Alaska.
    Pretty simple really. the spinner and swivel wint on the bent, knobe end of the spoke- he made a 90 degree bend and then at the bottom he slid on "keeper", looked like a wire leader crimp thing and then bent the attachment part at 90 degrees to the upper bend

    AZ I don't have a bender as of yet that can take that much torque . A spoke is pretty tough . The crimp sleeve is usually stainless steel and you can use them to close an R eye wire frame so the line won,t slide up the shaft . Doing these is opening a whole new can of worms for me . Bet I wind up making wire clevises , Thanks for the in put . I'm going to snoop around Dahlbergs site .
    barresi This may take a while to collect up the stuff . I'll try to come up with something cool .

    Cool Toadfrog thanks for the reply. I can't wait to see your creation! Don't worry about the time, we have all winter and some of the spring... Stripers don't come in until the end of April, early May. BTW When I mentioned I wanted a spinner to resemble Bunker, I mean I'd like the colors of the skirt to resemble those colors. I just wanted to clarify, looking at my past post, it sounded like I wanted a bunker spinner bait. Anyways, looking toward to your creation. Take care.

    Nice Looking spinners Toadfrog. Also, Larry D. used a couple of nails driven into a wall stud as a bending jig. I also enjoyed his other "how to" shows, the one where he did the molds for "mister wiggly" (a large fluke type) and the "whopper plopper", which he is now selling.

    Its 3 oz finished weight . The fly is on a 6/0 circle hook . I do believe a .035 wire is to light for really big fish . Something that weighs 100 lb might just break it . Researching as we speak .

    Looks good toadfrog , if I may add...I would go with a bigger hook size. We normally use 8/0. That's the only change I would recommend. 8/0 is a good size for stripers and blue fish.
