Here is a pic of a bait I just finished with a slight variation on foiling. Instead of cutting a single piece of foil to cover the entire bait I used a single hole punch to punch a bunch of tiny circles from the foiil. I then overlapped them on the bait to create a scale pattern of sorts. I still used a small strip on the belly, but the rest of the bait is covered with these small overlapping circles of foil. Please tell me what you think. Thanks.

That makes an interesting and unique pattern! Very nice.

I'll tell you what I think ! Great idea, looks good - I will have to try this one. I could not imagine some of the guys here sticking all those on a 22" lure though. pete

I was thinking about trying something similar, but with holographic mylar. Have had some guys ask for a luckycraft americn shad type paintjob, just never got around to trying it.

hazmail, you're right, it did take a long time to do. This bait is 2" long and it took 2 hours to punch and appy all the circles. It is very labor intensive. I think I'm going to try some other kinds of tape, this was furnace tape by the way. It was hard to puch, very sticky.

Your idea and lure are great.
I use that furnace tape at work, and can't imagine the patience you have!
