    Weagle ?

    I have a Weagle that I can't quite figure out.

    The first 1/2 the cast it is just under the surface, about 1/2 way back to the boat is starts running like it expect it should.

    My thought is the weight of the line or line leader combo is dragging it down. The closer to the boat = less line = stays on top. I have tried a Floro leader vs Straight wire and no change.

    Any ideas?

    I pretty much found the same thing with all the Weagles I have. Unless you work them painfully slow they don't seem to have the action I like. Not saying they are bad, but I can't fish a bait that slow. I've tried about all the different walk the dog lures and keep going back to my good old Giant Jackpot.

    Removing the swivel from the leader is what worked for me. Buddy showed me the trick. Cut the swivel off and tie the line directly to the leader. Action will improve greatly!

    Stealth Tackle makes a wire leader just like that (no swivel). Great walk the dog leader!

    You really have to give it slack line right after twitching it. Almost like the motion of cracking a whip. Not enough slack and it will nose down.
