2 Oz A40 Junior Style Metal Lip Eelskin Swimmer Lure Kits
5.5" long and 2 Oz size, stainless steel thru-wired this is a copy of an original Danny Pichney A40 Junior metal lip swimmer.
We added the groove integral to keeping a rigged eel skin attached to the lure. Eelskin swimmers are a deadly way of fishing for stripers.
Information on how to rig and store this lure can be found online in videos, and also some shops that have eelskins in stock can show this to you.
It's very simple and when done properly will result in a fantastic way to catch big bass!
Many use floss, heavy monofilament, tying thread, or a small tyrap to hold the skin on the lure.
All kits are sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal sanding.
Kits are weighted with one belly weight only-can easily be re-drilled for heavier weight.
Very nice swim action and is designed primarily as a big bass lure. Casts very well for a metal lip swimmer too!
All components are included except for split rings and hooks which we recommend a pair of VMC 2/0 treble hooks
for the belly and no hook on the rear.
We use only USA made components in our kits!
Very simple retrieve on this lure, it will tail wag right on top, and will dive slightly on faster retrieve.
This swimmer is a good intermediate kit. It requires gluing the lip in, gluing the weight in, minor sanding, and painting/finishing.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled with precision and duplication second to none!
Can be painted with Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more durability.
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. More information on our free lure forum linked above.
