  1. Hey everyone, I just finished a Rainbow trout musky bait. It is 10" long. I made it from some redwood that a fella gave me. He had it in the garage for like 20 years. Was nice to work with. Has a neat smell also. It is a thru-wire. It was lots of fun to do!!!!!!!!! :D

    Those dots were not fun to do! :eek: I did each one by hand with a enamel paint marker. I almost fell asleep twice! LOL
