Diemai, thanks for the compliment, I have been making this one for a few months now, it just kind of evolved from my original idea of the "Pivot Point Spinnerbait" which I am very happy with. Almost the same features and characteristics except it is a top water bait. Figuring out what to use for the planer head and how to fix it to the shaft so it wouldn't move was the part which gave me the most trouble with this lure.

152nd street baits, it isn't available anywhere. Baitmaking is just a hobby for me. I have given a few away to friends. But I just don't have time to make and sell them.:( Its pretty easy to make, using an 8 inch piece of .051 wire and a 5/0 spinnerbait hook to which I have molded a 3/8 oz weight around the shank of. You need to drill two 1/6 inch holes in the back of the blade for the wire to pass through and back into after you bend the hook loop. To lock the wire to the colorado blade, you could use epoxy, or jb weld or any two part resin product to fill the concave side of the colorado blade. the colorado blade and buzz blade were painted with a heat gun using powder paint sprinkled on with a small paint brush. (Thanks Cadman for showing us how to do that) Hope this helps.

Nice work John!

What purpose does the wire coming off of the back of the spinner serve?

Hi Bob, as part of the lure, none.;) Sorry that is just two small wires imbedded in a 2x4 which I used to support the buzzers vertically so I could show the articulation of the hooks. By the way, took them out fishing a couple of afternoons ago and caught two bass on them. Nothing to brag about, just keepers. Had another couple of blow-ups but didn't take it.
