    Nice paintjob , ...hopefully it would work out in terms of reliable hook-ups !
    Mark, those are really nice looking baits, love the gill. I like the unique shape of your bills too. I think they will get bit and I am anxious to hear how the hook-up ratio will be. Best of luck with these.

    Getting the fish on is my main concern now.
    I'm so used to fish eating cranks with trebles, and also getting pinned when they slap at them, I have no idea if I'm getting bitten or slapped with this design. Yet! Hahaha

    I figured I'd paint them up in schemes that work for more shallow lures, and see if they get bit.
    I'll have one rod rigged with a conventional deep diver, and one with a single hook crank, in the same pattern, and see if I can get bit on both.
    If not, there's plenty of room on my garage wall for pretty "failures".
    Good Optimistic attitude. If the Sebiles are catching fish, yours will too.

    I hope you're right. I'd hate to have to "retire" them. Hahaha

    It's an easy build with PVC.
    Not having to worry about water intrusion makes me fearless. I never even checked to see how well my top coat covered the inside of the slot. All I worried about is keeping the slot clear for the hook shank to swing freely.
    I doubt I would have even thought about trying it with wood.
