Where got the idea

Hanging that weight off the eye of the hook is a pretty neat idea, especially with a floating crawdad. And your crawdad looks great, pretty cool idea using that material.
Do you fling that thing with a fly rod? .

I've never seen the bell sinker set up before. I don't see any advantage over a regular worm weight/bullet weight pegged on the line. I've done this before with bassin' gear. Peg the weight an 1/8th of an inch ahead of the hook and it allows the lure to free float like the above set up. The benefit is that it is less likely to snag on bottom structure.
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

The next JikaFly. With the big styrofoam eyes hollow deer hair legs and the 1/8 foam body this dude floats! The 1/8 weight way to big but gotta find better than split shot. Gotta tie on with an open loop knot between the weight and the eye in top of the split ring to run right. This is on 3/0 hook. Next challenge....Hohum....
Guess we can assume the salties are taking the Cdad for a crab???? Maybe a tan or white one for schwimp?
Maybe one for muddy water....
