This "SputterBird" gets its name from the huge water spray and noise it generates when trolled from an outrigger, from your rod directly, or pulled by a cleated line from one of your transom corners.
The counter rotating blades are connected with a flexible joint which allows movement sideways along with the rotation, creating a remarkable amount of water disturbance which simulates an entire school of bait fish under attack!
Noise generating rattles in both halves produce underwater sound which simulates feeding action, drawing game fish from long distances to investigate the source of this commotion.
Use heavy line (80-200#) as the "SputterBird" keeps the line totally out of the water - visibility is not an issue. The #4 and larger "SputterBirds" have a stainless steel wire with a braised flex joint between the halves for strength and to allow rigging. The #2 "SputterBird" uses 180# monofiliment with reinforcing wire at each end and a snap swivel.
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. A hookless lure can also be used as a pure attractor. Speed can be varied from 3-12 knots to get the desired action. Bigger lures provide better stability in bigger waves.
