i have been playing around in the garage going though all the old stuff ive accumulated over the years...
some i have redressed some i have just drilled holes in to attach the new style hooks and skirts....
all good fun, now to find out if any work...

here are some pics of them...

the first is from 20plus years ago when i was making jigs.
its now converted over to this, who knows might work...



this one is tiny soft/bait from old school...



the one below is just made out of a couple of old tuna sized skirts cut down...


 
this yellow one is slightly bent like a Banana so should wobble and hang-up on the drop..






some are quite small, but this bottom one is about 20cm long and has a 6oz tear drop sinker attached...
will try it deep water bottom bouncing, i can see the eyes come back up flat as due to the pressure...
or it may get hit by a King going down...
will let you know if any work....

Yes Eric, Steve Badmans "Demon tackle"... hell, I still have one of those somewhere.... dammit, but where... ummmmm.... among the dozens of tackle boxes I have scattered about. I got a couple of fish on that in the tropics yonks ago, and I think I tried it on Skippies out on a trip on Zambucca and had some fun.
That bottom one you show in the pics, perhaps replace the split ring with a solid ring would be better? I just don't trust tying to splits any more, had a split ring chew out some heavy assist cord a while back, got me wondering what that was going to do to nylon....

i certainly like those PF, Thumbs Up

i tried that Banana Bender Yellow thing today and it worked a treat, 3 fish in 3 drops,
nothing big though, all went back...
i think it has potential,
even works well in the rod holder, stays down due to its weight, and the swinging motion makes the skirt wobble from side to side without the angler having to move it....
some more testing and a little refining it could be a winner....

during the nationals we would catch dinner each evening and it was great to see the different styles, we had all the usuals out same as what you see here and they all worked but I have to say Moocha was just using a soft bait and out fished all of us and the biggest also came on the softees.

very true BA, hard to beat a softie, especially a Zman...
but the right time and right place the other types can also produce good catches....

these new style Inchiku's are great and interesting to use,
also they are heavier than a normal jig/head which makes them easier to use in deeper water....

I had a bunch of tubes, but never really scored much on the larger ones.... but the small little 1" ones I used a lot for catching macks out at white at night, and rudd in karapiro. The jig heads I had back then never held the tubes on properly on the bigger versions, haven't tried them recently with a better range of more appropriate jig heads though. No reason why they wouldn't work though....
I always kinda liked the idea of being able to squirt some heavy fish-oil paste into the tube as an added stimulant.....
For those that don't know, those tubes are hollow.

can definitely fill those tubes up Capt A,
only thing i can see as a draw back is the skirt is not free swing as much as if it was attached to cord like on a Inchiku's...
but hell if it works then it could be just as durable as a Zman soft/bait...

Eric, the ones you have used, have the skirts separated and puffed around in the current as nicely as you would imagine? The ones I had never seemed to quite do the bizzo as I'd have liked it, the plastic of the "skirt" seems to cling together too much. If you wanted to really really spend a lot of time on them, I'd say going thru them and removing every other strand in the skirt would improve the action of the tail a lot. I will have to hunt up the boxes I had me old soft plastics in I guess! Damn, now where the heck would they be now... :-)

i whip this up in a couple of minutes, after putting the skirt on i jammed a soft lumo bead up behind it,
no way in hell will come back down now...
should wave pretty freely considering,
i am thinking this is getting more like one of Uncles Skippy lures and why wouldn't one of his lures work on snapper...

I have a few like that I have yet to give a proper shot, I picked up a few bags of the little 2" skirts on sale at Sunnys in whitianga. I also used those SB hooks from berkley that ...ummmm.... how to describe them, they have a strong, straight-eyed hook ( ie, with a lead SP "holder" just behind the eye) that I rigged up as small small kahawai lures for flicking around or trolling on light spin tackle.
I like the look of them anyhow....
