    Battery powered vibrating lure

    I've been looking to find a vibrating fishing lure, and although there are patents, I can't find anything for retail.
    I'm thinking of taking one of the Gillette vibrating razors and turning it into a lure for bass - I think it would work well.
    I know there's a thread on here about using something from Anne Summers before, but I note that it was turned off....
    Anyone tried this, or know of any lures that can be bought? (I don't like re-inventing things if they are already there..)?

    Hi Chrispy,

    I think stripping the razor as far as this would be a good starting point:

    IMG_0490.JPG

    Then one would need a shaped lure, with a holding cavity, with hooks or trebles pre-attached as these would be difficult to attach to the stripped Gillette .

    Just my two seconds and EUR cents,

    Tight lines, lambert63.

    BTW: Don't wander off the subject with pheromones on pre-used ones.
    species caught in 2014 sofar:
    Ballan wrasse, Codling, Corkwing wrasse, Crab, Dogfish, Flounder, Herring, Mackerel, Pouting, School bass, Tompot blenny, Twaite shad, Whiting

    target species:
    Bass (on a lure or fly), Seatrout (in Denmark), Thornback ray (in Kent), Mullet, Plaice, Garfish, Mackerel (on a fly), more Cod, more Bass and maybe some Dover Sole

    no offense but its an abomination, part of whats wrong with the world is the need to stick a battery in everything, just look round your life battery here battery there micro chip this and that, then add in the chemicals involved stuck to the seabed not worth it.
    on a serious note u could achieve a similar effect in the water by having a verticule spring with a weight on top within a lure, or a pair of springs either end of a metal wire which the shifting weight slides along plenty of vibes off it. or use a few mini stress ball type things as the shifting weights.

    Good Idea, I've been experimenting with the wife's Jessica Rabbit.

    Threaded a hook through the little ears and stuck it on full power.

    Now all I need is a lonley middle aged fish or one that likes to eat rabbits.

    One word of warning though. Don't put it back in her knicker drawer until you've removed the hook

    Ha ha - some nice replies
    It had originally occurred to me that putting it inside a cod bait would be useful, and yes, it does seem wrong putting a battery in a plug, but it will be interesting to see if it works.
    I will follow up on this thread if I get around to building the thing!

    Ok, here's a tip for anyone trying the same. Be careful where you cut through the razor as the vibration is caused by a rotating motor and the chamber for it extends more than I anticipated. ..

    This is the vibratey bit. I'll be gluing a bit of tube to this.

    And then attaching half a sluggo.

    The hook will then just be in the sluggo tail.
    The remaining question is how to waterproof the battery section properly. I may just use bath sealant.
