4.75in 7/8oz.

Poplar dowels for using screw eyes( thanks TU) .Super glue sealer( thanks again ). Jonestones foil, then D2T. Paint and then ACC topcoat.

They have 2 3/8 dia brass sleeves installed perpendicular to the centerline. 5/16 dia BB inside and capped off with .015 brass end caps.

Very loud, and sooo much fun to fish with. About 6hrs labor for each. A labor of a insanity.

Hope you like!

First off,thank`s for the explaination of what you did. Most say nothing.

Just post a pic with nothing else.

Like the big hooks on your baits. Colors fit nicely.

For me, the green one is the perfect fit. Meaning,I can see it! If I can see it,I can work it!

The green one got eaten about 3 dozen times the first day. And yes, they were Elizabeth River Gators doin the chewin! Man, its a lot of work to make these, but boy its worth it. I dont sell these.

No 2 VMC inline hooks keep the hook rash to a minimum.

Thanx!

I have got to hand it to you. 

 

Great design, well implemented, and attractively finished. 

 

To heck with Mirrolures!

I really appreciate that SS. Ive worked my butt off for 2 yrs tweaking these for specks, and reds; I think they are as good as any. My goal was to make walkers that work in choppy wind driven conditions. They float high-nearly vertical-and trout will kill em in a boat wake!  I'd rather bag 1 on a topwater than 5 on a jig! lol

Ive got some cupped faced versions that I will post soon.
