Dion Hibdon and his dad are known for a pre-derby checking under rocks (actually, having Dion’s kids do it) to see what color the local crawfish are. From there, they adjust their bait colors accordingly.
For Dion (and maybe Guido), that includes coloring the tips of the claws to match. Usually, they’ve said, orange, but not always.
Do you do that? Meaning, we all know what a crawfish looks like, but do you take the time to color your crawfish bait tips EVERY TIME like the Hibdons do?
Anyone out there trying exaggerating this tip thing, like painting one entire pincer orange or whatever. Or is that been and done and I’m spacing it.
> Puts rattles in the body because crawfish make click-clack noises.
> Uses scent, but always fresh: He’ll wipe the old scent off, which I get. Never seen a situation where old = good in the ol’ fishin’ thang.
Any other regular tweaks you make?
