I created HippysBleederChain® lures, after I noticed a trend in the fishing industry with more and more lure companies emulating wounded bleeding baits. I reviewed and fished many of the ones on the market today. It is my own experience as a former ER doctor when bleeding, whether human or prey, bleeding can occur in ball-form or droplets. For example, many people have seen someone drip blood from a ‘bloody nose’, this is how I see true bleeding occur. The rust resistant red aluminum chain mimics 3-D bleeding simulation and appears to stimulate fish to enact on their predatory instincts when using HippysBleederChain® lures.
Fishing HippysBleederChain® lures can be fished numerous ways. The Bleeder Chain Jig can be fished jigging, tipping the hook with live bait such as a minnow, crawler, or leech. Plastics can work also. These excel in catching Walleye, Bass, Pike, Crappie, and other predatory fish. The Ball float rigs can be fished out of a boat trolling with a bottom bouncer tipped with a minnow, crawler, leech or favorite plastic grub. The ball float rigs can be fished beneath a bobber with a small split shot pinched about 18 inches up or so from the hook. Tip with your favorite bait. This is great for catching panfish, i.e. crappie and bluegill.
