Are any of you guys fans of the Amazon Ripper style lures and how do you think they compare with the regular woodchoppers. I know they have a double prop and do make a different noise when worked thru the water. My only experience with the ripper was three years ago when I used one for a very short while. Really liked the sound but the fish sure tore up the double props. Good luck to all, Bobby Foster.

Don't have a whole lot of experience with the rippers....I think the regular woodchoppers did a little better last year....couldn't tell you why.

One thing I've been wondering about is putting a propeller on the front of the woodchoppers. I've heard stories about the front propeller getting tangled and breaking the line, but I wonder if thats still a concern now that everybody is using 80-100lb. braid. I have rigged one up to try next week.........

Darn......one more lure modification I've got to make before I leave.

With all the jig and plug modifications I've made, I'm either going to be hugely successful, or sadly skunked. There just ain't nothing like experimenting........ :?
