First attempts

7 posts in this topic

raging craw for the rattle shad, on he wheel for the diving crankbaits are 2 chartreuse shads, a sexy shad knockoff, and a pattern i call "joker" for the red lateral line that looks like a smile (catches fish like crazy at lake barkley!). last but not least, and olive shad (with pearl glitter on the spine) and a tablerock shad. These are my first attempts at lure making, based almost entirely from clips i've read here. thanks for all the good advice guys!

cheers,

BM08,

Nice work on the paint. I especially like the second bait in the last photo.

Are these repaints or your own carvings? I ask because I saw how the lips were done in the third photo. Trying myself to perfect lips and tow eyes and those baits look like what I am trying to achieve.

Again, great work.
