P 51 Mustang Shark Bait
Bob Waldo owner of Clyde’s Cranks made this P 51 Mustang Shark bait pattern a while back. I think he is making a few more, because I asked for one to add to my collection. I like to collect these smaller baits for fun, but I also fish them. If you want one you better get up with Bob as soon as possible.
I just rig them up for “schoolie” striped bass. These smaller plugs are a blast for the smaller striped bass in the surf in the fall. It can handle the big girls too if necessary.
DS Custom Tackle just started making a new teaser leader for just this purpose. A thirty pound mono leader with a number two rolling swivel, a loop for the teaser hook, and a seventy-five pound surf clip (medium). I could probably use the smaller forty pound surf clip but they have been making these for a special order so I may have liberated a few to use. Never leave me alone in the tackle cave, okay truthfully they lock me in until I am finished for the day.
