I think you've got it looking pikish... If I was a Musky just leaving a bar, looking for a quick snack, I'd slam it.

Keep up the good work.

Just a really picky side note. Two identical lures, built to have the same buoyancy etc, one cedar, the other balsa, they will both weigh the same.

The lure is looking really good.
