The bluegill is sweet. Can't make out too much detail on the other two but they still look nice.

Esox masquinongy will eat those like there snack food. Maybe while you're in the states, you can get a chance to try your hand at Musky fishing. As for gear, do you have an 8 foot surf rod, med heavy. It'll be springtime in southern IL and the musky should be in a post spawn condition. I'll make you a couple of spinners to get you going. The lake I'm thinking of has a 48 inch minimum to be a leagle sized fish... and they have a nice full set of teeth.
What do ya think Pete, give it a go?

Bruce - sound interesting, 48"! !!!, I had better start doing some push ups. We are booked for a days fishing on one of the lakes near Clinton with a guide, so maybe I will get a chance to sample these 'Musky', should be fun anyway.
Thanks for the offer of spinners, I might take you up on that, otherwise I think "Capt Someone" (forget his name) supplies all the hardware.pete

I have to agree with the others. The Bluegill is the better one by far. Very nice craftsmanship.
Posted 05 February 2008 - 04:37 PM
They are all nice, but the bluegill is incredible! You're a witch!

Seen those on another board,very impressed.
What kind of brush and paint are you using?????

Mo. has Muskys on Beautiful Lake Pomme de Terre 7,800 Acres of Muskie Water Just two hours south of Kansas City. I don't know if there are any other spots around Clinton that do or not. When one of those Big Girls hit on a spinner, it will take a moment or two to get the heart going again. I have about 6 to my credit to date and every time, it just gets the blood pumpin' into overdrive.
