Mark, since you are here, what color is the Oama lure. It is not the yellow green is it? I lost my new 1 oz yellow green yesterday. Mad

It's more of a sand color on the bottom and the same green on the top. Bummer on the yellow/green. Did you lose it the good way?

No, I threw it way out and the bail on my reel did not close when I cranked it. By the time I realised that, it had sunk and stuck on the reef. Did not have my fins and prescription goggles with me so I could not go and get it. I lost two yesterday, another one when I cast it, the uni to uni knot for my 30 lb leader to 12 lb test main line snapped. No more leaders, striaght to the McMahon clips from now on. Will be getting a few Oama lures soon. Do you have that option on your order page?

Bummers, maybe you can go back and look for it with your gear. Why did the Uni-Uni fail? Just order black/blk eyes and send a note that you want the Oama's. mahalo, m

I can't say why it failed scratch , but it broke right at the end of the knot...I had the 12 lb test and the whole knot, but no 30 lb leader...I know I should replace the leader on every outing, but I didn't...I used the same leader setup on three differant days...My fault for not making a new leader...Probably failed from hitting the top guide constantly and I really whip the baby out there ...What the heck, gotta keep you in business.

Thanks, I really do appreciate all the fisherman who like the lures I make. One thing I do is double the braid when going Uni-Uni. Also I keep that knot outside the guide. I really like tying a Bimini to double the line and that gives a little bit more protection on the braid that gets the most stress during a cast. The Bimini can go through the guides like nothing, very smooth. m

That is what I do now, just double the line instead of using a leader...But i don't use the Binimi, I use the Australian braid to make the double, lot faster and the knot comes out smaller...I can tie one in a few minutes, no matter what size line...Even for my Ulua poles with 80 lb test, I make the double with this to tie on my 200 lb rub line..

Are you using mono or braid straight to the lure?

Mono, on all my spinning poles...I only have braid on my big ten foot Okuma spinner I use for day time dunking sometimes. Even that the Power Pro braid is doubled right to the swival. I tie the end of my braid a litle differant then the Ausies do. I never had one unravel yet.
