ActionDiscs for soft plastics

Post by wigglefin » Sat Apr 02, 2016 8:10 am

Just wanted to introduce my self to the Bass board and open a discussion about ActionDiscs.

http://wigglefin.com.

If you haven't seen ActionDiscs before they make killer swimbaits out of any soft plastic. I introduced the disc in 2001 so I know some of you guys are using them.

Can I get a witness...

Dean,
I just checked out your website, and the added action to the soft plastic bait is very appealing to me. However. I fish primarily for Northern Pike, and I use an 80lb fluorocarbon leader. The website says your product will fit up to a 25lb test line. Any chance there is enough material to the parts that I can run a small drill bit through it to make it fit the larger diameter line? I would love to add this to my pike fishing game.

Thanks,
Mark Mills (AJ's Dad)

Mark,

You'll want to use the #2 or #3 disc. The #2 disc is pictured with the 5" super fluke above and will accept 60 lb mono. With the fine diameter of fluorocarbon you should be able to use the #2 no problem.
I'll tie up some rigs on 80 lb fluro today and post some photos.

Here's the Pike rig on heavy mono:

The fly is a 5 1/2” Heavy Herring form Olympic Tackle
4/0 Big River Bait hook
80lb mono
#2 ActionDisc ( turns out 80 lb mono fits easily )
1/2 oz egg sinker (or as much as you need)

The beauty of tube flies is that you can change the characteristics of the fly by using different colored beads. Two orange beads on this fly make it look like a Perch. Alternate black and white and it looks like a Crappie etc.

I like to use sliding weights on my rigs. The fish can’t throw the weight around and rip the hook out of their mouths. I usually put the weight on my main line above a swivel.
