I made these the same way as the green one, but the white one floats a little more horizontal, and the black one has a rattle beneath it's green side spot.

Mark I really like the shape you have created. What type of action do these have? Walk the dog, or a simple popper action?
Those are too cool! Do you hand carve those? Very nice work
They walk the dog, or do straight chug, chug on a fast retrieve.
I use an oscillating belt sander and a dremel with a sanding sleeve on a 3/16" diameter rubber shaft to shape them.
I do the final sanding by hand, but the machines get most of the credit.
Thanks. I'll let you know how these new ones swim after I take them fishing today.
I took these two baits out for a test and the black one, with rattles, is too heavy to work up on top. It goes sub-surface when it's worked.
I'll remove the two sst balls that I used for the rattles and see if that helps to save that lure.
In any event, I'm back to the drawing board to come up with a more buoyant design, probably longer, so I can add rattles.
