  2. Swim Bait Tails

    I have been toying with some ideas for some different things. One of those is making a mold of an actual small frozen fish. I have been wondering if I were to "pose" the fish with a curved tail before freezing, would it cause a swimming motion as it was pulled throught the water due to the curve in the tail. Has anybody played with an idea like this? Anything similar? Thanks, Tim
  3. Hey everyone, I'm working on my swimbaits and can't decide on which fish pattern I should do next. I've already done my rainbow trouts a couple times now and want to try something new and challenging. The fish I'm thinking of; Native Cutthroat Trout, Brook Trout, Yellow Perch, Largemouth Bass. I put a picture of my rainbow trout so you can see my style of painting. Also a picture of my new swimbait that is needing the paint job. I'm leaning towards painting a cutthroat trout but still like those other fish patterns. Let me know guys, thanks.
  4. Hey everyone. I'm just starting making swimbaits. I've made 3 so far and working on 2 more. I have made all of them a one solid piece, meaning i don't split it in half to add my weights or screw eyes. What are the pros and cons in doing it this way. I see mainly everyone splitting their baits in half. I've attached some pics of the three baits i've made.
