Green fingers it is dipped. I took some foil and rolled it then dipped it 3 times. The eyes went on before the third dip. I got to try some last weekend on Lake Erie and caught some nice perch.

Good looking lure John. That would kill em out west in my home lakes. Steelhead would like that too, throw it out, let it sink then twitch it along the bottom, slam!!

Thanks guys,

Mark I used an HVAC foil with mylar wrapping paper over it. I have tried all sorts of things. I am a beginner with plastics. Not sure if this helps with your question

Jed, I use to be an avid steelheader, actually obsessed with it! I use to work a hundred yards from a nice steelie river. I would fish before , at lunch and after work before we had kids. I am very lucky to have all sorts of fishing less than 1 hour from my house. Walleye , perch, musky , pike, bass, and steelhead. I have the steelhead bug for some reason this year. I was thinking the same thing for these minnows. How is the steelheading out west? Are they ocean run steelies?

That is a really nice looking lure. I have been using a lot of paddle tail lures lately and have been doing well. Since I am obsessed with paddle tails right now, and if I had your skills I would make a tail on that and fish it all day. Have you ever made a paddle tail?
