I've noticed most people using the inverted hook design for fishing right at the bottom, here's a slightly different design.........

Hook- bassbug 2
eyes-mono
weight- .20 lead
claws-pheasant
antanae- rubber legs
body- a mix of mud brown cray-dub (mostly dk brown and olive angora, rust and red angora, and tan frog-hair dubbing (for a lighter color and for ease of dubbing)
shell back-brown body strech
rib-copper wire


this pattern was made for working bolder fields looking for pockets of fish. it is not weighted heavy enough to scour the bottom in 15 foot, but has a terrific fleeing crayfish action, and won't tear your rotator cuff.
