The JDF Head is designed be attached at the head of a herring, minnow, baitfish or strip. It enhances the bait action & produces a tight, revolving  or rolling action. The action is similar to that of a "wounded" fish that has proven to stimulate predatory feeding. A normal roll will revolve at 1 to 2 times per second. Baitfish from 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 centimeters) can be used. Frozen baits must be thawed before using.


 A: Rigging the JDF Head 
Slide the hook down 5-6 inches (13 cm) away from the head. Place the head of the baitfish snugly into the cavity of the plastic head.



B: Inserting the Plastic Pin

With bait held tightly into head cavity, insert the supplied plastic pin into the round hole through bait and out the opposite pin hole. Push pin completely in, making sure the hole is in line with the leader. See Figure #1

C: Placing the Hook
While holding the baitfish, insert the hook into the side of the bait below the rear of the dorsal fin. Set the hook in dark area with the hook shank lying flush against the bait . See Figure #2

D: Pulling the Curve
Hold the plastic head in onr hand & carefully pull a curve into the bait (towards the hook side). The curve should be "even" below the hook.

  • If the bait does not revolve or for slower trolling - pull additional curve into the bait.
  • If the bait revolves to quickly or for faster trolling - hold the plastic head with one hand while pulling back on the hook with the other hand. This will decrease the curve in the bait.
  • To obtain the perfect roll ~ slight adjustments may be required. Sample your bait at your correct trolling speed. As you dip your gear below the surface, study the roll of the bait. If you are using the JDF in conjunction with a flasher, the leader length will also affect the action.

  • E: The toothpick

    In order to hold the correct curve in the bait, a rear line bolster in the head acts as a tension device (area to jam the line) . The line travels through the bolster and at this point is designed to accept a simple wooden toothpick. When the tapered toothpick is pushed into the hole running parallel & beside the line it creates enough hold or tension to stop the hook from pulling the bait. The toothpick is crutial to keep the hook back at the center of the baitfish. (Troll the bait from the nose, not from the hook) Replacement toothpicks should be kept as these are frequently replaced.

    Special Tips:
    Always use firm, straight, bright bait, keep moist & cold
    Keep the toothpicks dry until you use them.
    Keep hooks sharp.
    For best results, use behind a OK'i Big Shooter, Lil Shooter or Kingfisher Flasher.
