Someone gave me this last season and I was thinking of making another slightly larger and heavier one.

Anyone else done this?? if so post pictures or give me a few ideas.




This thing swims great.

My dad made 2 for me. They get hit enough that we are thinking of putting hooks in them this year. We once had a White Marlin follow one for 2 miles before we could bait and switch him. I also had them hit and nocked into the cockpit. Mine are skinny and longer but if it swims good give it a shot.

I made a couple of fender teasers. They run well but I'm not sure how helpful they are.

This seems very interesting and it makes sense. They say if you have one Mahi on, you should keep it in the water until another hits a second line.

So I guess this is is a large (24"?) wooden fish with a weight on the bottom and is trolled under your trolling gear?

Is it only good for Mahi or does it make other fish interested?

I might need to make one and give it a try this year...

Fender Teasers

This one looks interesting...


My fender teaser had a 2 lb weight on the nose and a flashaboo tail. It was great for bluefins and fat alberts. The nylon rope came undone in bad seas on the Hambone last June. I hope the new owner likes it.

I got bored the other day and made this one. Costed me around $10. Still have to rig it up, might put a hook off the back and a swivel on the tag end of the tow line. If it get's bit I'll hook it up to a 50.




No, I didn't go to art school. :D
