My phantom brown wiggle warts.jpg2

Two of Jim's Wiggle Warts, one two rattles, one three rattles.

The belly is Createx transparent orange, thinned 50% with 4011 reducer. I sprayed multiple thin coats over the entire bait to give an orange cast to the whole thing.

Then I thinned med. brown transparent 50% with 4011, and sprayed the sides and back. I did additional coats on the back to make it a little darker.

Before I began painting, I put shell markings on with black and brown sharpies.

I did the eyes with a black sharpie, and, using my gloved thumb for a template, I sprayed uncut tran. orange on the bill to give the "claw" look, like the originals.

I put one dip coat of Solarez gloss on one, and two on the other. The additional coat added .3 oz.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks Saltshaker.  I hope the fish agree!

 

I wanted a transparent scheme, like the old Wiggle Wart Phantoms I've seen, and this one is see-thru from below and the sides.

Our water is clear out here in SoCal, so I just want to give a hint, not hit them over the head with something solid.

Thanks Painter1.

I fished a new lake this weekend with dropping water and very little rock, so I didn't get to throw them much.  They do swim great, and they both hunt, so Jim Sharphorn of Predator Baits really nailed it!

"Don't be dumb, git you some!"  Hahaha

For $2, plus hooks, split rings, and paint job, you get a great bait!
