Hello gang this is my first attempt at making a hard bait. I carved up a little 5.75 inch proto type and sprayed these two with some rattle cans laying around the garage and gave them a single coat of clear. Here is what came out. Hardware and hook will follow. Still need to figure out the proper ballast weighting on the floating version of these baits, But in due time I will figure it out,. Till next time Gang.
