Gizzard Shad

This is a funny looking little baitfish with it's eye position and rounded head. My challenge here was to capture gill detail without carving. This is loosely based off a Big-O and is weighted in the belly and a small shot in the tail. The lure is 6" long and weighs in just over 2oz. Wire through construction, G-10 lip, hand painted glass eyes and foiled.

The local body of water that I fish at are full of gizzard shad. They are darker than this one, but the eye is spot on!

Great work, Jacob
