Post subject:  Modifying shad type lures

Back in November, I prpmissed that I'd post some pictures about how to modify Storm Shad type lures to increase hookups.
http://www.indianangler.com/viewtopic.php?t=1306

Well, the bits have finally arrived and the way to do this is really so obvious that anyone who's been messing about with wireing an extra hook into place will be kicking themselves when they see the photo's - Just like was when the solution finally hit me.

Here's the basic shad, the required bits and the finnished product.


This is the guide hole for the screw eye being drilled straight into the leadhead.


and the screw eye being screwed into place.


The screw eyes are the smallest size and are cheap as chips at about $5 for a hundred.
It's kinda obvious but it's a good idea to test your drill size on a piece of plastic. If it makes a guide hole but you still have to work to get the screw eye to screw in, it's about right.

KenL,
would the screw eye sit strongly into the soft lead? have you added any loctite or equivalent for added reinforcement?

No glue required.
I will be taking some of these lures on my forthcomming trip so I'll update this with details of the robustness of the modification.

Looks the job, Ken. I'd use some epoxy in the pilot hole before screwing the eyes in. How big are the shads in inches?

The shad in the pick is 5" but I'll be doing some from 4" to 6".
BTW. The drill is 1.5mm.

Good idea ken - definitely the hook ups will be more. Storm earlier marketed this lure as you have modified it but we found snags to be more in shallow rivers (submerged trees and branches).Thus we took to the storm with a single hook on top.Tight Lines

Hi Ken,

Happy New year to You.

Nice one that. I am using a lot of plastics these days. Literally in numbers as the fish mostly destroy these . Couple of days back I was out tossing them to king fish( narrow barred spanish) feeding on sardine bait balls and had instant hook ups . We caught more than a dozen fish in a couple of hours. However I changed to small spinners as i was averaging one shad to a fish. THe Mackerel literally shredded the lures and destroyed the lure's action. However the shad had more hits than the spinner. It was fun though, the fish were like 2 to 3 Kg and we were fishing light on 8lb mono with a 40lb clear mono leader.

I have had a couple of tails go missing on shads recently. I thing the bottom hooks could help a bit.

hi santosh,
got myself some of those storm lures and they do work good. got a few bites from sea bass but couldnt materialize any. i like to attribute that to finiky feeding at his time of the year :lol: got tharshed about by the waves and had to cut the day short.

think ill get rid fo the treble and try using it in a nearby canal for pike next weekend, weather permitting. will let you know if i can convert.


11 cm , 18 grams.
