In the spring when the hoards of squid enter the bay to spawn, and the move out to the front drop offs, I've caught fish in the 40 lb range on mine.

Can anyone tell me how these woodpeckers swam/worked? I found this thread by searching Shopsmith-Sorry Gunny what happened to you sucks. Years ago I have a bunch of tools stolen, no where near what you had but a truck full anyway oh yeah along with a $2000 stereo system to boot.

I'm actually going to look at at a Shopsmith today, it's the old 10er model. The dude wants $150 (FAT CHANCE)for it but does not have all the accessories. It is set up as a lathe right now, but it can become 5 different tools. I do already have a drill press and table saw though and for $150 or a little more I can buy a pretty decent lathe. I know where I can get one even cheaper but have to make a trip out of it. They are great machines and will last a lifetime, oh wait it already has as the original owner died.

I love the 3rd one down in that picture. These are real interesting to me. They seem like a mix of a pencil/ needlefish / jitterbug. I am wondering if you just give these a straight, slow retrieve if they'll swim like a needlefish but also bubble up some water ot if you need to work them more like a pencil? When I go fresh water one of my favorite plugs is a red and white jitterbug so perhaps that is my calling to these plugs. I'd have to think one of these in a squid color could be deadly...

Nice stuff

To be honest, I haven't come up with the right combination of wood and weighting to get action that I like. So far, the best is birch with no weighting. I'll throw it in the plug bag and try it on the real thing.

I have had the same problem with the few that I have made so far. I have weighted front and back just the tail. Changed the location of the collar type of wood and the shape of the body and have yet to make it squiddy enough for me. I have been using one as a popper on occasion and it has taken a (1) fish. This will be a winter project for me.
