Making a chubby darter?

  1. Now that the ice season is coming closer it got me thinking about those jigging raps, vibees, and chubby darters. Has anyone tried making something similar to a chubby darter? For those that don't know what it is it is like a lipless crankbait with the eye hook in the center on top. It is meant to be jigged while icefishing. I was thinking of attempting to make one But wouldent know where to begin.

  2. I've thought about trying some ice baits, but man, around here, they'd have to be pretty tiny.

    I fish Mosquito mostly, but maybe the bigger sizes would be effective on Pymatuning now that its producing some real hog walleyes.

    They've got a special on icefishingtoday.com. 3 for $10. Can you make them that cheap?
     
  4. When I bought Mine at Gander mtn. it was $7 a price. That is a great deal chaunc.
     
  5. It must be over because they are back to $7.50 a piece.
