Gizzard shad

Gizzard shad

This has to be one of my favorite builds so far. She's made of PVC and is 6 3/4" long and has a nice slow sink. The "S" movement is tight and swims well. I don't have an airbrush yet, so I sprayed her with a rattle can, the third section kinda got messed up due to me being impatient. Clear coated with Etex. Let me know what you think.

    hey mel just wondering what your tail is made from

    it's a tackle box divider, a tip I got off of TU.

    Mel , that looks as good as any I have seen. Sounds like you have the swimming action in good shape also. Congratulations.


    Thanks John. I can't wait for the weather to warm up a little so I can catch a pig with it. They will only get better once I get my airbrush. It's hard to get the detail out of a spray can.

    That bait looks terrific!

    Beautiful carving and detail, and the scale pattern shines!

    That is gonna get clobbered.

    Thanks for all the compliments. I learned everything off of TU so I have to give all the credit to everyone who posted the how to threads and tutorials. I've only been doing this for about a year and this is my 8th swimbait. I'm a quick learner, but like to do as much research as possible before I dive into something, expecially swimbaits.

    you selling'em ???? haha

    I would buy 1 or 3 lol looks good
