The rubber strands work as legs, not whiskers. If you meant them to be whiskers, they are too big. If you meant them to be front legs, then you should probably put on some back legs, too.
All that said, I doubt the fish will care at all. Put one of those in front of a fish big enough to eat it, and you'll get hits. If the foam bodies are soft, you'll catch some fish.
If the bodies aren't soft enough, you might have a problem getting a hook set.
Good luck ... I hope you catch some big ones on them !!!
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

Good catch on the 'whiskers.' I intentionally made them long and thick hoping they'd move more water. They can always be trimmed at a later date.
The fun thing about these is that they're about a five minutes tie!! Just kind of a whim project.
