    Default What body for Road Runner head

    What is your favorite type of body for Road Runner style heads and how do you fish them? I've used them with curl tail bodies and really haven't caught much with them.

    I have seen them paired up with Bobby Garland Baby shad in a pack of 2 hanging in the store. They seem to work pretty well that way. I am sure the blade puts some extra movement into the tail.
    The love for fishing is one of the best gifts you can pass along

    I use curly tails a lot but Id say my favorite is a paddle tail, slider style bait paired with a road runner head. I use these almost every time I cast the banks of troll. Use this combo almost every time Im on the water

    If your fishing a road runner with a 2 inch curly and not catching fish something is wrong. Been using that combo for a long time on different lakes with good success.

    Actually, personally I prefer marabou on a Road Runner over plastics.

    If you haven't already, enter the Road Runner Contest : https://www.crappie.com/crappie/cont...feb-28-2022-a/

    I mainly cast Road Runners, but have been known to Long Line Troll, Push, and Flip them.

    as stated, in the instruction manual , fish it SLOW
    most of the time a roadrunner aint ketchn fish it is because someone is fishing it too fast .
    I like a really soft " twisting " type tail on them dropped slowly down big timber in the summer .
    flat out deadly in some spots for sure .

    What size road runner head? 1/8, 1/16?
    If 1/8 may be going to fast to stay in the strike zone.
    What depth water are you fishing?

    I reach for the Southern Pro Crappie Stinger on a 1/32 oz. head usually, maybe a 1/16" if they are deeper than about 15' or so.
    Yes, I was talking to myself; sometimes even I have to ask for expert advice.
