Nice stuff OSSCA! Good to see you posting up again.
I am working on the seasons gathering schedule, check back often, let's get some more Rhodie guy's involved this year.
Hitting the Hudson in April for some spring Cow action.

Nice looking stuff OSSCA, would you care to share how the weighting relates to the action of the plugs?
I'm a novice builder just looking for all the "theory" info I can find.

Ok here it is,The plug in diagram 1 is a basic spook type,if weighted along the center line it will pivot producing the well known "walk the dog" action.
By moving the weight slightly forward( Dia.2) of the center line you change the hydrodynamic signature of the plug thus changing the action.
During the retrieve the water is now flowing around the sides of the plug as opposed to cutting cleanly through the water and the pivot point is no longer the center line it's the weight. PRESTO! swimming action.
Alot of experimentation with different shapes and weight placement can be time consuming but well worth the effort.

Absolutely fantastic information. Thanks for taking the time to explain. This thread is a keeper.

Nice diagram OSSCA, you can rest assured that there will be one or two of those in my future.
Good luck out there.

Jim, it seems Ossca recieved a couple of Emails concerning his post's.
Someone felt, and he refuses to tell me who, that he was sharing trade secrets.
I am glad you restored this thread, as I see no specific instructions, only helpfull direction on how it works.
