Awhile back I mentioned I was going to try and combine an umbrella and bottom bouncer and I finally got to mock up a couple this evening. I didn't have any ferrels down in the shop so I just twisted em up out of some scraps of safety wire. I like to mock and think and say to myself, " that idea was really stupid". Tomorrow I will be off to pick up some ferrels and good quality barrel swivels and I will build a couple to try on Monday. The actual rigs will be from the same size wire as the BBs and will be ferreled at the corner eyes and middle of the rear leg with a swivel and blade. Some will be built without a blade. I am posting some pictures of the mock ups so laugh away but I think they will work for these ETN walleye and sauger. You have got to lay what they normally eat in front of them. So it will be imitation bluegill, shad, gizzard shad, they will be here tomorrow, reddear, etc. Storm has a pretty good line up so that is what is coming. If you join Karl's Club at shopkarls.com you can pick up the Storms for $4.65(?) for a pack of three. I've got 5 packs coming for a grand total of $20.00 including shipping and tax. Well my friends, Look and Laugh but I will post pictures of the finished product and results when I get out next week.

Well, I built the first frame today after last night's prototyping mess. I decided to use THHN wire because I have a lot of scraps laying around and 14 gauge works great with the crimps I also happened to have. Nothing like building something out of excess pieces. When you look at the picture you will see just the basic frame which will clip to the bottom bouncer and the the baits will be attached to the other two corners by clip and swivel with a Lindy and a clip or just tied directly on if I am running a stick bait or other type of lure like a Storm or even a crank bait. Livingston makes their ProWake crank bait which I Carolina rig for bass but it would work great being towed on this BB umbrella. Where the back leg crimps together one version will get 2 crimps, not a stop like in the picture, and in between the crimps will be a BB swivel with a blade on it. Sometimes you just want more flash and noise. Next week this ba$+a#d and its bladed cousin will be in the water. Wish me luck.
Randy.
p.s. the legs on this one are 6,6 with a 7.25" spread between the tie points.

I now have 4 finished bottom bouncer/2way umbrellas finished. I ran out of clips in the house so I attached the blades to the split rings on the Spro swivels. The clips will make blade changes on the water easier and I have about 100 options in my blade collection. Here are the pictures and I will let you know how they work by next week. I hope.
I chose copper because I had it and I am hoping that if it hits an old tree trunk or house/silo foundation it will bend instead of hanging up.

This is interesting and definitely requires testing. I read a little bit elsewhere about what you write and the results are really good.
