Default questions about ratfinkies

i hear all about "ratfinkies" as one of the favorite ice jigs. i think i know what they are but today i was out fishing evergreen, and talked to a couple groups. both groups were using finkies but they were totaly different looking. so can anyone tell me what they look like?


thanks in advance


Jim

Can anyone tell me why they a) don't have replacement bodies for Ratso, Ratfinkee, and Shrimpo bodies? Also ... why the heck are they not as "inexpensive" as other jig bodies? Seems like they ought to be less expensive as they are smaller in materials used. Doesn't make sense. If anyone has a supplier for plastics that would work on small jig heads, that would be good to know.

Default Re: questions about ratfinkies

what I know about these is they try to sell them like a lure. one per package
I would also look at some others besides the rats
I like what I call a fuzzbuster, magnets, and twister tails
my buddy likes the tear drops, and what he calls a zooplankton.

most of these either come with extra bodies or don't need them

I have had good luck tearing the rat finkie bodies off and using a Gulp maggot or grub...they really hold on to those with no wax worm or mealie...

One thing to do about the finkie bodies coming loose is carry a tube of super glue with you. When they come loose, a lil dab will do'ya!!! It will save you a lot of money in the long run.
