Whats going on with black head parachutes????????
I have been getting orders for more black head chutes than white or chartreuse.
The hair is white or chartreuse and mostly 3 and 4 ounces.
Have you used any black head chutes?????????

My guess is the fish can see the black head in the dirty water near the bridge.It might contrast against the water surface.

Purple heads have been the rage off Ches. Beach and Solomons lately.

Most of my parachutes have little if any paint left and they still catch Rock.

George; I reported earlier that your 1 1/2 oz black head chutes in white or green hair were the hot lure off the boards earlier in the catch and release season. Sinse then; I have made tandums out of these with a three oz. lure. The 1 1/2 oz takes forever to work its way to the end of the boards; but the tandum offers more resistance and gets there quicker. I also offered the posibility that the black head looks like an eye on your chutes. Whatever the reason; they have been my best baits. The fact that they are "slider" baits, also means they pick up less "snot". I don't have downriggers, but I do run Dipsey Divers to reach 20 ft depths. The divers can't handle baits over 6 oz. and so the 1 1/2 oz. works great on these as well. I'll definately be buying more of your lures for the "winter" season out of Point Lookout after October. 5th (Marty)
