Deep BalsaBabe

The shad color bait is epoxy sealed, Createx paint, 4 coats of brushed Dicknite's Clear Topcoat, Fully tied straight-pull single piece stainless wire 3-point harness, lure body is a single piece of 1/2 inch balsa, with a circuit board lip.

The chartreuse-crawfish twins are made sandwhich style using 2 pieces of balsa each, but are otherwise the same besides having slightly smaller lips.. Nothing like fishing custom lures that are built for specific lakes and conditions!

Well Dino, what can I say? Just more first class work which is definitely your norm. Have come to expect nothing less from the Lure Professor. Am really humble to be able to learn at the feet of the master............believing all this BS yet? :P

You are definitely the MAN! :yay::yay:

diemai, thanks so much, those pattterns are my versions of an old Bagley Baits pattern that I caught a lot of bass on. I first began learning to paint it out of necessity a few years back when there was no Bagley Company around anymore. The company has since been ressurrected under new ownership Their original color vairied some bait to bait on the amount of brown, the heaviness of the black or dark gray bars, and the amount of flourescent yellow on the sides and orange on the belly. These particular baits have no orange, and I play with the brown back color too, sometimes with a little blue or yellow or red, but these are Createx light brown sprayed on the hot yellow.

Spoopa, thanks again for your comments and compliments, I really appreciate them. I don't make a lot of baits anymore, but I take my time and make them as well as I can. They sure do last longer when you do that! I've been fortunate not to lose that top one in the yellow crawfish color as I have actually broken it off with a baitknocker twice, but it floated up. I've caught a lot of fish on it too, and it is a bit scratched and scuffed from toothmarks etc, but I'll just renew it with some sanding and a coat of clear this winter. I built the bottom one for a back-up!

Capt.,

Not a very good picture on the shad color bait, because it is at an angle that shows the scales, but not the bright silver highlights, and you know what I'm talking about! Thanks much for the kind words friend!

Ok I guess I will call THESE BABES 1080i HD FLAT SCREEN LCD... I was going to just say 720p but its not your babes fault I blame your camera for the focus! and since I got a online affair going with your wife on facebook I figured I better say "ARE YOU FISHIN SHAD BABES IN HD YET?" Kinda want to say on your good side! Tell my love Javier Garcon Hog says "HI and her online boyfriend would be upset at her too for moving trash cans"

Very nice baits Dino. So nice I bet Peyton Manning would drop SONY and ENDORSE THEM!

I appreciate the nice comments everyone! Boone buddy those are some fine jumpers you're holding there!!

Stringjam, I have a blue MIM Strat that I put a perloid pg on, but mine's has a maple board. I have MIA rosewood board Strat, but it's an HSS Sienna Sunburst...

I just make them as well as I know how---I like them to last as long as possible. As soon as I figure out how to make circuit board as durable as Lexan, I'll spread the word!

Thanks Rob, I'm keeping it 'tween the fences buddy, I appreciate the good wishes! I like it when the fish insist you build certain baits. So far it has been an odd fishing fall this year; with all of the rain we've had, (all the fronts don't help the pain issues) there's not nearly as much oxygen depletion taking place with turnover, and lake levels are higher than normal, keeping the fish more scattered than typical...Is it kind of the same down your way?

I really appreciate the compliments Rob as you are one of the great home-production builders (and a dedicated Urethane clearcoater)!!

:yay:

Yours, Dean
