Yet another bait made while I’m in a pandemic mood. This is a segmented walking bait. The paint pattern is a chub, which is a common north American bait fish found all over. It started out as a small piece of 40 yr old pine I had around and ended up a fish. As usual I made everything except the hooks The video below shows the build from block of wood to getting it wet. The video also shows how I make eyes.
This pandemic will last through the winter. The experts pretty much say so. At this rate I’ll be in more baits than I can fling by the time it ends. Like I always say, “Everybody has to have a hobby.”

Another nice looking lure. Have you had a chance to fish any of these lures yet?

Oh yes, I posted a collage of picts a couple of lures back…. Fishing has been a bust here this year though, they drained the lake for dam repairs last year. I hope next year is better. Last year was the best.

Same here they have been draining some of the reservoirs for repairs it takes years before the fishing returns to what is was.

That is a Shimano Curado DC reel. I love it. I haven’t touched it with my thumb in 2 years and I’ve never had a backlash. No kidding. When adjusted correctly you can cast it into the wind and slam it into a wall and it won’t backlash. For anyone else reading this, DC stands for /”digitally controlled”. There’s a little microprocessor in it that controls the brakes so you get maximum cast without having to break manuallyl.
