    Repainting Wood Lures

    Hey not that it really means much but are you sure its a triple trout? They are not made from wood they are a resin body.

    You consider keeping the line tie in the 1st head section? Just guessing but it seems it would keep the head pulling through the water straight and allow the back section to really kick interesting design

    What Kind Of Plastic

    Nope they are soft plastic baits. I believe they are made out of some type of silicone? Here are some links maybe this will help. http://www.316lurecompany.com/baits/bluegill.html http://www.outdoorproshop.com/Osprey-Tournament-Talon-Top-Hook-Swimbait-6-7-i-p/Osprey-Top_Hook.htm Kind of hard to tell with out holding them

    What Kind Of Plastic

    I was wondering if anyone knew what type of plastic 316 soft baits are made of. (I think ospreys use the same) It seems to be almost like a silicone? Thanks

    swimbait help

    Honestly I would almost always say action is more important however I think it depends on you are fishing it...for example if its a bait you plan on "dead sticking" then looks would prob be more important. I am just getting into swimbait fishing but from my understanding a lot of big fish can be caught this way.
