Handy those things swim nice. Did you put too thick of a clear on it or something? Bending the lip up is going to make it dive more, down is going to keep it on top. And I would assume you know not to tie direct it needs a loop on the front. Those things are pretty much hard to frig up?

that's a tallywhacker swimmer. Doesn't take a lefty 1 lip it takes a pikie 3 lip...you got WAY too small of a lip on there.

handyman i just took the tallywhacker and the pikiezilla down to the creek for a swim.the tally was draging tail till i took the finishing nail out,its the tailend of a 12" sluggo i think the nail gives it more action,not so for the tallywhacker,swam great once i removed the nail.i really like the way the pikie swam.i'm going to try both on the open beach once things clear up around here.
