You've achieved a neat scaling on this one :yes: !

Two things , that I've noticed and that I would change fo future lures , ............a horizontal line tie on a lipped lure disables the possibility of tuning the lure in terms of straight tracking , ..........with this particular lure you would have to bend the metal lip , if the lure should run out of course(these commercial SSt lips are darn rigid to bend) .

Some glider jerkbaits still have such horizontal line ties to enhance their gliding abilities , these surely do make sense on such baits .

Second is , that I would not use wood screws with countersunk heads to fix such lips(been there , done that) , .......most likely makes it impossible to set the lip at accurate right angle relating the lure's lengthwise center axis , .............just a little inaccuracy in positioning the pilot holes and the countersunk screw head would push the lip , where it wants it to go to , not where you wish it to be !

Always take round head screws for this purpose !
