  1. 2nd try.JPG Here is my 2nd effort. It is 5 1/2 inches long. I made it for casting for Muskies at Alum Creek. After testing in the tub it seems to have better action as a jerkbait though. It darts side to side and then sinks nose down very, very slow. Took slightly more than 4 seconds to get to bottom of tub. Then the lip would rest on bottom and tail would point up. Not quite what I was trying for but I hope the fish dont care.
  2. Nice job on that. Hard to believe it's only your second attempt.

    Nice looking lure...I like the firetiger pattern...I want to try a few in that pattern...good job!!!
  4. Nice job. You never know. That lure action might trigger a strike.
  5. Looks great! I talked to a fella at saltfork this past summer. That type of pattern works great there also. He showed me a monster shad that he painted along that line. Keep them coming!
  6. Thanks guys. I cant wait to test it on the water.

  8. It caught my eye, great color combo and great finish. pete
  9. Thanks for the nice comments. I used frisket paper to make a stencil pattern for this one. Has anyone else tried frisket paper? I like the stuff and am curious if anyone had any special tricks with it.
  10. That thing is really sharp! It sounds like its going to have some teeth marks in it this year.
  11. Thanks VC. I sure do hope it gets some teeth marks.
