Good work Mark!!! I like where you are going with these baits and that sculpin is a winner for sure. Have you gotten any of them wet yet?

I've fished the top one, and it swims great. The body remains stable, while the tail wiggles back and forth. To me, it looks like a real fish swimming.

So far, the bass haven't agreed with me. :lol:

I haven't been bitten on it yet.

I'll take the other two out for a swim this week.

Mark great looking baits. Looks like you got the fin thing down. I did away with putting fins external fins on my baits because of the baits wanting to roll. I think the extrernal fins do give the bait a cooler look. But I am now placing the fins in tight to the body of the baits. It give them the fin look be no rolling effect. Many might think that placing the fins on a swimbait is an easy task but I have wasted to much silicone to figure it out. Again the baits look great and in due time those bass will be tearing those up.

Pancho,

I put the fins on the bottom of the two swimbaits to act as weedguards in case I wanted to try a through-line and treble hook rigging.

As for the sculpin,

I thought they might make the bait roll, but they are so soft that I think, with a heavy enough belly weight or nose weight, they will just fold back against the body when pulled, and then flare back out on the pause.

I poured them with medium plastic, and they are very soft.

I plan to fish these on the bottom, with a pull/pause retrieve, not as a swimming bait, so I don't think it will be as much of an issue.

I'll find out this weekend.

Fingers crossed.

Good luck Mark. Those should get some attention!! Pour up a few with a pearl belly and black top to mimic a shad. Keep up the great work. I got a few new baits I will be posting soon. I think your going to like these.
