just finished these, got 2 more that are still curing but wanted to get a picture anyhow. for size comparison the large shad is 10" wake bait. saw a post on getting the swimbaits to float and retrieve horizontaly. i weight each section individually so that they have the same bouyancy relative to size. i put the weight as close to center as possible in each section. has been working pretty well for me.

Beautiful baits!
If you don't mind me asking, what are you using for fins and tails, and where do you get it?
