Mojo Howie??

12 posts in this topic

So I was really pumped to throw my new Howie the other day and when i did all it did was roll. Is there anyway to tune these lures or am i retrieving it wrong?

What type of leader were you using? If it was one with a ball bearing on one end, that may have caused the problem. Make sure you are using proper leaders for those style baits.

Leader should not have anything to do with it.

If it is rolling, you are likely retrieving it too fast. This bait is designed to be reeled very slowly.

As for tuning, make sure the angle of the lip is pretty steep...like a Hawg Wobbler.

Besides that, I can't think of any other reason that it may roll.

If you try this and still have troubles you can always send it to me, and I will tune it for you...or replace it if I cant get it going.

A friend of mine has a Wabul that does the same thing. I tried mine side by side with his and on a couple different rods, while I could get it to roll less than him it would still roll. Mine works great, now to get something to put some teeth marks in it.

A Wabull that rolls?

Not sure what you mean by this...

They are designed to have some belly roll on the glide.

Are you talking about a Howie as well? Or do you have a Wabull that rolls more than you think it should?

Its a Wabul that goes belly up. It runs nothing like mine does.

Have him get a hold of me, and I will replace it if he wants

Luke,

Next time I'm out i'll try to slow it way down and see how it works. I might have just been working it to fast. First thing I threw for the season so my blood was probably just pumping to much and was just reeling to fast. I'll let you know how it turns out and hopefully show you a pic of the results :-)

If he doesn't want the Wabull that rolls, I'll take, the roll is awesome and I would much rather have one that doesn't look like everyone else's.

I have a Cady Wabull, and that one runs different then most I have seen, wouldn't trade it for the world.

I have yet to get out this year but definitely looking forward to seeing what that Thumper looks like.

Sounds good. Just get a hold of me if you have any more trouble with it.

Like I said, make sure that lip is at a very steep angle (basically 90 degrees to the body). That way the lip will move the most water, and at the right speed it should not roll at all.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
