@Big Epp Thanks man! I owe a lot to you and other folks here. I need to practice painting fins more. I'm not too happy with how they turned out on this one but for me every mistake is a learning experience:)

Not perfect, but the bait looks great!  It's amazing how much information is on this site.  So many people have so much experience.  I've learned a bunch over the last couple years.  My next jump is going to be into using an airbrush, as the finish is just so much higher quality looking.  Did you airbrush this?

Thanks @Big Epp! Yeah I’ve got some work to do still learning airbrushing techniques but every one gets better. Yeah I airbrushed this. One of the best tips I saw on this site was to use a transparent base coat between steps while airbrushing so you can wipe mistakes off and redo them easily. That has saved me so much time and frustration. 

For me airbrushing has been the hardest part of this whole endeavor. I’m not a very artistic person so I feel like I started from absolute zero but after a couple of years I’m staring to feel confident.


 Thanks again for the kind words man.

Tight lines brother!

I can totally relate, I never thought myself very artistic until I started making and painting baits.  I am very excited to get started with an airbrush!
