Had some fun with this one. The body is cedar, the tail is paracord epoxied 3/4" into the body (paracord is the stuff they use for parachute shroud lines - this tail ain't gonna break or pull out!), and the lure is ballasted with a single 9mm bullet. Actually it may have been a .357 mag, but I don't remember for sure which I used.

Thanks for looking!

    They all look great Fishwhittler. I have one question though. How far back were you standing when you "installed" the bullet ballast?

    I've found the optimum distance to be 453.361 yards exactly. That's if you're using subsonic ammo; you have to stand further back if you want to use a full-power load.

    This bait doesn't walk quite as well as I hoped. I think it would do better with a longer and shallower body, but I'm probably going to let this bait style be for now. The bass around here don't dig big baits even though I do, so I tend to focus on smaller lures. Although I am working on a 3oz+ swimbait at the moment. ;)

    Tight lines

    LOL - I don't care if it works well or not.  The bait is awesome looking and and has a cool factor X 9...  ok, that was corny, but still a very cool bait.
