made a white one this time. white ones are more of a gray/dark back in the search i did. anyhow, came out good and swims exceptionly well. i used a frog hook for the top hook for fishing it on the bottom and i added a hanger in the belly for adding a treble if wanted. used imbedded magnets to hold the top hook in position.

7", 2.9 oz.

The colors are dead on. Putting the hook on the back so you can run the bait on the bottom is a great idea as well. Sweet bait all the way around.

Simply Awesome JR.

I have to agree, that the frog hook/magnet concept is brilliant. You are an inspiration to swim bait enthusiasts.

I just gotta try it sometime.

The hook on the back concept is not new for me. I first saw it on a Diemai's lure. Maybe not even Diemai couldn't claim to be the first to have such an idea, I don't know.

But the way this swimbait turned out shows once again the talent of it's builder, and we are all used already to admire his work.

Sucha great bait as usual :yay::yay::yay: , ......absolutely perfect craftmanship :yay::yay::yay: !

Rofish , if I recall right , I've seen that backhook rig at first on one of John's flounder lures , and I'm still sure , that it has already been there decades ago within the mists of lure history !

Gonna post pictures of a commercial lure from the 1970's(supposively) in my "back hook" thread , received it from a friend some weeks ago .

greetz , Dieter :yay:

yes, that concept has been around for a long time. i use to have a bait with the top hook screwed to the bait. it had to have been from the 50's or earlier. should have saved it :rolleyes:
