This "Sputterbird" gets its name from the huge water spray and noise it generates when trolled from an outrigger or from your rod directly.
The counter rotating blades are connected with a flexible joint which allows movement sideways along with its rotation, creating a remarkable water disturbance simulating an entire school of bait fish under attack!
Noise generating rattles produce underwater sound to simulate feeding action, drawing game fish from long distances to investigate the source of this commotion.
Use heavy line on your rod (80-200#) as the "Sputterbird" keeps the line totally out of the water - visibility is not an issue.
Bright, fluorescent colors make it very visible in the water, and the hollow body keeps it afloat even in big waves. If you are using it as a “bird” attractor, you can pull your favorite lure (or rigged bait) 6-10 feet behind it.
Speed can be varied from 3-10 knots to get the action you desire. Bigger Sputterbirds provide better stability in bigger waves.
