cordell redfin swimmers
cordell redfin swimmers come in a 5" and a 7" size.
i use the non-jointed models. i use the 7" for large stripers and blues, and the 5" for schoolie stripers, weakfish and freshwater.
the classic v-wake is produced by retrieving the lure as fast as you can, while still keeping it on top. i imagine that you may have to bend down the eye to do this, if you have loaded it.
because you have to retrieve this lure faster than a bomber (for example), this is a better daytime than nightime lure for stripers. in blue chrome, it is particularly devastating during the mullet run.
that v-wake, when done right, will draw bass and blues from long distances, much like a pencil popper does.
try it. you'll like it!
