    Thank You! It is a 7" cedar crank/twitch bait. Here is a quick video I took in the pool yesterday.

  10. Hello Eastman,

    Thought I'd share these pictures that show the method I've been using to add weight to my thru wire baits. These are strips of lead that are made to fit tightly in the slot much like the wood strip method that you commented on. I made these by pouring lead into a metal Altoids can about 1/8" deep. Then cut them into strips with my skill saw. It's a nice alternative to drilling holes and patching with filler. It also ensures that the weight is perfectly centered. 

    Take care! John

      Glad you like it! Before I came up with this method, I always drilled my weight holes while the wood is still in block form and before I cut the wire slot . It's much easier than trying to drill into the slot.

      Yea I hear you.  It's tough to know sometimes when I'm making prototypes for myself  where to drill the lead before hand.  This is the result.

      Ouch! I feel your pain as I've done it myself. The lead strips are a nice clean way to go.
