Entry for the jerkbait group


Kind of a late entry for this great contest. This is one of my "crazy minnow" top-water jerkbait.

The bait is about 10cm long and 14 gram with two size 6 treble hooks.

Hand-carved balsa body, 1mm stainless steel through wire, of course reinforced eyelet with braided line.

Four layers of E-tex gives it a shiny yet durable protection. Home made 3D eye, simple and bright. Airbrushed body and foiled gill plates with some fine details (probably won't see in the picture)

Hope this could bring me some lure building supplies :-)

Thanks for watching! You all have a great year of 2014!

And here is the prototype swim test video if anyone interested in what it acts in the water.

That's a beautiful bait design and it finished out nicely. Awesome job. I don't understand about reinforcing the eyelet with braid? Congrats on a beautiful bait.
