They look great Mike.  I'm partial to something similar but with rattles.

Thanks... I have made them with rattles, But never saw any benefit in our clear water. I question how much rattling is done while dragging on the bottom.

Look good.  Last fall when I cleaned my boat my Jig box was looking ugly so I tossed everything.  Probably won't be going to St Clair or Erie the rest of the year so I won't need any.   Be sure to post us some photos of your catches.

Same here... I've gotten completely away from using rattles for a long time now in my soft lures... but I may experiment some this year on some darker water lakes.

I tend to move my lures a lot so I imagine I get some rattling though it is probably very fine a sound but maybe that is all it needs. I can recall years past in my tournament days when the water was churning and not very clear that it seemed like sometimes the rattle made a big difference in the number of bites?!? At least, everyone was convinced and using them a lot. I like to try things to this gives me another thing to play with this year when it seems worth trying. Just in case...

Zona is a big fan of cracking tubes with heavy weights! Of course, he catches a ton of bass doing it! I've seen him kick butt doing this a number of times! I fish mine similar quite often and love snapping tubes (and other minnow/craw imitating baits)! Keeps me from getting bored as much and sometimes it really catches them fast!!
