speed trap copy

Someone asked me to try and copy a Luhr Jenson speed trap, and here's my version, along with an original in a redish craw for comparison.

I've included a schematic (at least, my version of a schematic) and I built mine out of Azek PVC trim.  They swim really well, even when burned back on a fast retrieve.

I built one out of the med weight balsa that Rayburn Ben gave me, and it's so lively I had to increase the belly hanger weight to 3.7 grams, with not rattles.   I'm going to try and make a balsa bait with rattles tomorrow.

Great Job Mark!!! Speed traps are one of my "go to baits" on The Delta...have caught serious #'s & size over the years.. especially in the Orange & Red craw patterns..Thanks to Mark Lassagne he introduced my son and myself to this great lure about 20 years ago while fishing on the Delta..
