Salty's Eel Skin Swimmer Kit 1 oz Size

CNC turned and sanded. Recommend VMC Permasteel 4X strong #1 Belly hook with #4H 90 lb 2X strong split ring,
300 lb Krok stainless swivel included, Stainless Steel hardware where possible.
Add your own buck tail teaser on the back if you don't want to use a skin.
This lure makes a very nice swimmer for bass at night. This swimmer is based on an original Danny Pichney Conrad Jr body style but reduced in size for easy matching to the size of "finger eels" found at most shops. 

Perfect size at 4.25" long with an integral groove for easy rigging of skins. Tremendous action on this lure, nice tail wag will get your skin moving very nice on top!

Proper presentation of this swimmer lure is to cast then very slowly retrieve, stop occasionally, and also occasionally twitch the rod tip to let the lip throw some water.
These lures are designed to be surface swimmers, to rig a eel skin on and give it a great action!
Fish key in on the V wake and wiggle action that these produce and will explosively hit these lures!

These can also be fished as a straight swimmer too!
Rig it with a plain buck-tail teaser on back, don't use a tail hook, just a stub with buck tail tied on it to keep the action real nice.

Eel skin swimmers were an old time way of using dead eels.
Stretch a skin over the plug and hold the skin on with a piece
of dental floss or monofilament in the groove on the lure.
This lure fits small sized skins very nicely.
