This is gonna mean trouble for some crappies.:D:D:D:D

"Michael, The dropper rig looks good. I’ve watched a lot of underwater video of dropper rigs in action and there are a lot of times the fish hit the spoon instead of the dropper jig; so your single-hook on the weight idea is a good one."

It is a known fact that all fish will eat off the bottom. Different “Search lures” have been in existence for over 30 years. The beauty of my dropper rig that I personally created and solder together is that it can be used as a search lure, a dropper rig on the bottom and also fished very effectively beneath a slip float. It is a soldered swivel and pinmin combination that acts as a weight and attractor and allows you to attach a small finesse jig that triggers fish into biting. Fish this on the bottom to attract fish or you can swim it under a slip float. The nickel finish and the colors on the pinmin weight really attract fish. As a bonus, they will often hit the hook on the pinmin. The loop knot keeps the small jig acting properly. It allows it to be free riding so that it flutters and looks realistic to the fish. When fished under a slip float the waves will impart all the action that is needed.

I fish it as a dropper loop setup under a bobber. It acts as an attractor and the weight(Takes the place of my sinker.) Below the dropper is another jig usually 1/32nd oz. The fish see the attractor and hit the tiny offering below it. As a bonus you will oftentimes get an extra fish catch on the dropper. Tip with maggots.

I have never seen anyone use anything like that.

Exactly how does one fish with those? cast; vertical; troll; under a float???

Myself I would do vertical fishing with that kind of setup.
But do believe that other methods will work also.

It is not a custom jig head. All ingredients are readily available at Jann's.

There is a thread on how to solder. Have fun.http://www.crappie.com/crappie/archives-stuff-we-dont-want-loose/75199-how-solder-spoon-pin-minnow.html

"I have been testing and experimenting with Danger/Danger today. Its a great lure. I fished it like a Road runner with out a bobber. I would cast it out and let it sink to the bottom...then slowly reel in the slack and then lift my rod tip and let it settle again...then slowly reel in the slack and do that again all the way to the bank. I caught a bunch of nice bluegill doing this. It was drizzeling rain so I did not have the digital camera out. I then rigged Danger/Danger up like a Johnsons beetlespin by Pure Fishing. That did the trick! I started catchin small 10 to 12 inch bass one right after the other...I was still catching bluegill also. I even caught a channel catfish. Out of the different colors that I have the Goldfire worked the best for me today. Here is a picture of it rigged up like a beetlespin. It is a great lure very versatile as it can be used so many different ways for many different species. "


“That really is a fine lure rigged up like a beetle spin. I got that idea when you mentioned Pure Fishing as they own Johnson Beetle Spin now. You can also put a small inch and a quarter plastic curly tail grub on it. You can also vertical jig it just like a Cotton Cordell's Littiule Micky jigging spoon. You can also just throw it out and let it tail spin down much like a Mann's Little George. Heck that thing can be fished so many different ways its unreal dadgummit! “ David Shands G-3 Belden Mississippi
