Introduction: DIY Ten Cent Conduit Pipe Fishing Lure

This is a good lure for deep jigging, trolling, working strong currents in inlets or noodling around bridges. If you get cut off the lure only cost pennies.

The great thing though is the interior is hollow and you can add bait or lure attractant to increase the chance of a strike.

You can see a video of the lure at my YouTube Channel
