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.
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.
