PVC swimbait "Pike"

PVC swimbait "Pike"

A 8 1/2" bait of PVC resembling a pike , painted with modelmaking enamels and felt pens , transparent glass eyes with their background painted orange .

The fins are made out od epoxy sheets , ....the lure sank rather slowly at its first blank tests unpainted .

Made it without a lip at first , but I was aware , that it might possibly not work without one , as sucha slender body shape often cannot generate sufficiently powerfull vortices to get the bait to snake well !

And so it did , at first bath tub blank tests only the two or three rear sections would get to move , so I added that lip and afterwards the bit swam just fine !

    Great work! I love the coloration of the fins.
    Looks like a really shaking one!
    Thanks a lot , guys :worship: !

    That just looks very good Diemai!
    Thumbs up! I guess it must have a nice snake like action.

    Great looking lure! The paint job is really impressive, since I know you don't use an airbrush.
    Isn't it time to go out and fish it? ;)
    Great looking bait diemai! Love the detail.
