replacement for the lure I broke

replacement for the lure I broke

4" bluegill, PVC, floats head down, swims 6" to 12" below the surface.
This is a copy of the lure I banged onto a concrete pier four times, at which point it broke. Imagine that! :lol:
I didn't put a rattle between the eyes on this one, so the head is stronger. I put two glass worm rattles in the rear section.
I photo'd it on the piece of paper that had the image I was trying to match. As you can see, I'm no Picasso, but I don't think the fish will care.

    Great stuff. The colors came out very vibrant. The bass will clobber that thing!:yay:
    Mark that looks great.

    Good work

    Thanks guys.
    I just hope the bass clobber it this time, instead of me beating to death on a concrete pier. :lol:
    My 15 year old was home sick today, so she was helping me upload the photo. She asked me what happened to the original lure, and when I told her how I broke it, she said, "Jeez, dad, why did you keep throwing it against the concrete? Wasn't once enough?"
    Apparently not. :lol:
    I guess I will need to either improve my casting, or learn to make my lures out of steel.

    "Jeez, dad, why did you keep throwing it against the concrete? Wasn't once enough?"

    "Out of the mouths of babes" lol

    Great looking lure Mark. Try to keep this one off the concrete. B)

    That looks good. The purple spot on the belly is a nice touch. Posted Image

    We all know , that fish like hanging around such obstacles , maybe next time put your boat in a way to be able to cast parallel down the pier and not towards it , I find such less dangerous :blink: !

    But if not such little accidents would happen sometimes , you won't have as many causes to carve some new lures , won't ya , .......and that'll be bad :lol: !

    This one turned out very nice , both in shape and color , .....it surely does not require a "Picasso" to make good lures :yay: !

    greetz , Dieter :yeah:
