This is the second of this bait I’ve made. The first one (it’s original twin) was lost yesterday in a tree of all places. Thing is, just before that it was the first time I had caught a fish on one of my baits. Then I cast it into a tree.

So, this morning I went out and nearly duplicated the same, now nostalgic item. Like it’s twin, it’s made from pine and airbrushed. It has a UV-resin finish coat. I make everything about it except the hooks.

In this video it shows the making of the bait from drawing it on a piece of paper to taking the first cast with it when finished.

I really like the looks of that one, real natural. How deep does it run?

About 3 ft max. If you looked at the video it’s a floater with the back just cresting. The small 45 degree bill in the front is just there to make it go below the surface and affect the wobble too. A larger bill would make it dive deeper. But the angle of the bill has more of an effect. A deep diver has a bill that’s almost inline with the lure. I slowly planes down.

If I was a fat bass hiding under a lily pad I would bite the shit out of this. Just say’en.

Actually the original did, my first fish on a bait I made…..before I lost it. It’s right there on the tackle box beneath the pectoral fin.
