Just went to Academy to see if I could procure me some striper-pattern Heddon Hell-benders. Unfortunately all I got was a smirk and giggle from the guy behind the counter and didn't even find the silver or white variations. I have a couple of the big white ones left, but I have had better luck with the smaller, striper pattern and wanted to replace the ones I've lost at the bottom of Twok.
Do you guys leave a hook on your actual Hellbender? I do, but the only time I've ever caught anything on the Hell Bender itself is one time when a big hybrid was fooled on the striper pattern at Tawakoni.
Since I was unable to land any Hell-benders, I decided to try out the 20 foot diving version of the Lure Jenson Jet Diver. Has anyone here ever used one with any success? Have you had any success in trolling anything other than the pet spoon? How about trolling an umbrella rig behind one?
Happy Friday and Happy fishin'
