Didn't hook up with the beer can but GREAT action!

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

I'm pretty sure this can also be used to catch people without all the steps listed in the link

I made up a version of a beer-can teaser before my last trip. There are several "flavors" out there. Some are teasers set up in a daisy chain others are used like a bird in front of a lure.

I made the latter one evening prior to a canyon trip. I was in the store and used a tall Heineken can. The hot beer-can now is the Japanese Soporro can because of its shiny and sexy curves. I chose the Heinenken because it has a cupped base. The Soporro can had a flat base.

I rigged it with a cable and crimped some washers in place to hold in place. The can had 4 or so egg sinkers inserted thru the hole to act as a righting ballast. I also staggered the cable in the front and the rear so when towed it had a bow up trim angle. I filled it with foam for lure making which gets much harder than the insulating foam in a can.

It was just a test can so it was not pretty. I rigged it with a green machine about 6' behind the can.

Observations:

1) It kicked up a heck of a spray. Kind of like a poor mans bird used for a greenstick.

2) If I let it way back it would submerge for a spell. I needed to use a big bird in front of it to keep it in position. If I kept it in close it was fine.

3) I did not catch anything with it but I just didn't like the idea of trolling trash. I have piles of $100 lures and teasers and what the heck am I doing dragging this trash around?

I think it has potential as a real teaser...I will probably wait for Carlson or the Chinese to make a production version and just buy one. It was interesting for an hour or so though.

Indeed...that is why it looks like it does.

I don't have a pic Jim, but mine also submerged, but when I could see it, it smoked like hell and came up and popped/splashed every 15 seconds or so. Looked like a fish crashing a bar, and got my double-take a bunch of times. We trolled it a lot through some dead water, and isn't pulled from the spread forever, just need to drag it through some better water next time...

I think for a dead calm day, I would make one with more foam and let it back in the center of the spread, although I have the same thought. We have a 13" hard plastic bird that raises holly hell when fished way back... should just leave that out if we want to mimic a stick....

We had a couple daisy chains of squids with a "MudFlap" behind them set up off the teaser reels. These MudFlaps are a heavy black rubber cut out of a tuna and the first few times you see that thing come out of the water you get whiplash! The seem to work several times the real fish were crashing the squids.

Headed to the lanes for a quick day trip tomorrow on a gofast rig. Plan to fish the break south of the dump
