    They are suppose to float...I have some that do and some that don't...actually they all will float at first, just that you got some leakers Jordan....Yes, I think they look good too....but same as Trav, no eaters...not like on my Jakes or Grannies...

    This has nothing to do with the action, bouyancy or fish catching ability of the bait.....but just for the other cheap-bastards out there, this particular bait (like Kick'n Minnows and other Storm products)seem to really often find themselves at "half-off" or cheaper during sales at places like Bass Pro, Gander, Dicks, and other chain stores. They seem to often be trying to even out the colors and the ones they are flush with are often the colors I like the best. I guess what I am saying is that if you want to try any of these baits....you should be able to try them on the cheap.

    I am actually just going to try a drill bit, and some super glue. Great Stuff will actually add some weight to the bait where as a little super glue won't add much. I like the bouyancy as is right now so I don't want to weight it too much.

    Not sure how the weight chamber is set up on these so it may take a few tries with the super glue. All I want to do is get it so I can get some glue on the ball, and then let it set up.

    Anyone cut one of these in half yet?

    Tundra,

    Yep-drill bit and great stuff. I have also reduced bouyancy of some lures (like Depthraiders)by filling them with hot glue. This technique also makes the lures almost indestructable (for those that like to bounce lures off rocks and such).

    Travis, I have also been sucessfull using super glue and a piece of electricians tape over the drilled out hole. Of course this only works until a fish puts a tooth through it. so I just carry some extra with me in the boat and can fix it when it happens.

    I think I'll be drilling out the rattles and filling the flatstick with either great stuff or foam beads sealed with hot glue.

    Thanks for the info Rob!

    I use a stealth fluoro leader attatched to my flatstick and it floats. Really like the lure so far but no fish on it yet...

    Jordan just use a small, short sheet metal screw to fill the hole. Add a dab of silicone to the threads and screw it in. That is how I seal my Jakes. It allows me to add/subtract water on those if need be very easily.

    If you are having issues with yours sinking I wouldn't do the great stuff. It is just going to add weight.

    However, I wouldn't mind having one or two sinking ones as long as it maintains the action!

    Here is the screw in a Jake. Note the off center placement to keep the lure seem from splitting open.

    These baits leak like crazy. Jakes and grandma'z are an important bait on lotw. There have been a lot of complaints about the flatsticks up here.

    Yep. Mine started out a floater on LOTW but turned into a sinker. Otherwise liked the action of the bait. Tom
