Here are some pics of my second round of building my own crankbaits. It gets frustrating sometimes when things don't work out at first, but patience and persistence, along with not settling on accepting the first try paid off for me...I am most proud of my first attempt of a natural perch and the foiling substrate I discovered. Just like the light bulb and 3M post-it notes, accidents can sometimes prove to be very effective!! I have purposely left the lips off of the shad baits until I can get a better time to "water test" and my replica Reef Runners still need detailed, but essentially, they are done. I am waiting on decal paper to arrive so I can finish them. I have been creating my own details in MS Word by using line art and designing details I can print to decal paper. When I finish these, I will repost and help anyone who would like to do the same. I am confident they will turn out very nicely. What do you guys think about my second round of lures? Oh yeah, my daughter wants the Wild Thing Shad to use a a key fob...gives me an idea...hmmm?
