My swimbait video

15 posts in this topic

Fellow builders,

I didn't build this one guys but I did design it. The swimbait is made from injected plastic and is nine inches in length. The video isn't the best because the pool we were using is poorly lit but you can see the action of the lure pretty well.

Hope you like it.

Jed, Really nice design. I like the action in the water. Good job man. What is the fall rate of the bait? How much does it weigh?

Not sure what you mean by the Scallop but I will tell you that although the hook rides right near the tail it doesn't seem to affect action in the least.

Weight? About 3.5 ounces (98 grams).

Fatfingers, yes you can fish it like a jerkbait and I should have shown this better on the video. The video isn't the greatest and I hope to do another once the weather changes and I can film outside.

Jed,

I meant the relieved area immediately behind the rear hook. As soon as you mentioned tail action, I figured out it must be relieved to give the back hook more room to swing.

Beautiful lures.
