Some good eating baits!!!!!!!!! LOL

  1. Man I"ll tell you there is nothing better than having a fish fry with perch and walleye on the menue! They are my favorite fish to eat. I guess I like fish that don't taste fishy. I have that argument with my friends all time that I am not a real fish lover! Who knows? LOL

    Here is a 10" walleye deep diving crankbait. I bet it could hit 40 feet. I can't wait to try it out.

    The other is a 7" perch glide bait. It is a slow sinker.

    Fire up the oil!!!!!! LOL
    Take care

    Beautiful baits! I've never heard of 40 foot divers. Doesn't surprise me that it could make it down that far. Nice work!

    Care to share what top coat you use? Just curious, as the shine looks better than my baits with Dev 2-ton...

  5. LOL that is funny vc!:D

    The top coat that I am using is Envirotex. With big baits it helps with the casting impacts with the water. I like the Devcon on the smaller Trolling baits.

    Ultralight, I use a 1/8" thick aluminum lip on the bait with a steep lip angle. I also use glass taxidermy eyes to help forward weight it. I had a prototype at skeeter and it hit bottom in 25 feet with 60 feet of line out. It hit bottom in less than a minute. I was really suprised by that. Here are some pics of the lip.





    Thanks for the kind words guys[​IMG]
