HERRING DODGER TIPS
give your dodger a quicker action, bend the rear up.
To stop your dodger from
spinning, bend the front down.
Dodgers effect different lures in different ways depending on the lure. Different lures have different actions, some lures create their own action and others need a dodger or flasher to activate them. So determining what type of lure you have is important in determining what your leader length should be. For example all of the Krippled baitrigs are active lures and do not need a dodger or flasher to activate them, but both dodgers and flashers will improve the performance of an active lure. Hoochies or vinyl non swimming lures are an example of a non-active lure.
There are a two rules to remember when selecting the correct leader length
troll = shorter leader and faster troll = longer leader
