Title Components for building a danny plug
Description This stream line suface swimmer along with the Atom 40 and Pikie minnow is one of the most popular and consistant fish takers evermade.
The two men most accociated with the Lure are Donny Musso and Danny Pinkney, both men made a killer plug that could lure trophy bass to the surface both day and night.
Here is my build.
I like this plug early in the spring when bass are on herring.
Items I will use here are a 1 3/4 X 1 3/4 X 8 1/2" blank of western red cedar, white cedar,Alaskan yellow cedar or even pine all make fine specimins, you may have to alter the weight.
you will need a lenght of SS wire, two #1 barrel swivels ( I use Krok SS rated at 500lbs)1 , 5 gram belly weight,one large danny style swim lip two belly grommets, I am presently using . 341 for this application and one tail grommet .425 dia.
Hardware can be purchased at New Jersey tackle or Cape cod tackle, lumber can be bought at most "real" lumber yards, I buy 4"X4"X12' cedar posts and cut amd rip them to size.
A word about safety, secure all loose clothing,keep your lathe tools sharp, wear eye protection (face shield prefered) and protect your lungs....
You will need a roughing gouge, a skew and a parting tool, you will also need a pair of calipers and a set of verniers or a tape measure, a back or coping saw, an awl and a 3"X1/8 drill bit also a 1/8 X6" drill bit
a drill press and a drill chuck for you lathe are handy, but a hand drill will work, it just is ALOT more difficult, you will also need a 3/8 and 1/2 forshner bit.. there will be other Items, that I will think of latter
