trout swimbait video

23 posts in this topic

finally got this made with the help of my son who knows how to do this stuff. this is a 8" trout, very SLOW SINKING. had to remove the hooks for the test as we were in a Game Dept. managed lake and did not want to get busted for fishing out of season, you never know.

Tell your son I will pay him a beer or a soft drink (depending on age) if he helps you making a tutorial about how to make such a swimbait. You can leave apart the painting process.:)

WOW...:drool:

I'll join in with rofish and Hellraiser and ask if you could share some information on how you built that beautiful bait. It truly is spectacular!
