I usually lurk in Wire Baits and Soft Plastics, but with all the great stuff here I thought I would try my hand. Not brave enough to start playing with knives and start whittling so I got some of Jannís bodies. The lipless is a foil, the black and red is a backward abstract craw and the other is an abstract bluegill. The bluegill has been christened with several LMB. OK here we go.

I hope when I get the nerve to try painting some cranks. They look half as good as them.

A true lure junky, not satisfied with just one addiction.

Basseducer, you have a great start on the hardbaits, but you need to get your knife out.
Heck, I've been tinkering with wood lures (topwater) since I was a preteen, and then add in tying flies, then add soft plastics and mold making. Then I find TU. Back into balsa crankbaits in a big way. I have even found time to pour some lead. By the time I'm 60, I should be able to put a whole tackle box together with all my own lures.
Now go out and find a stick to carve into a torpedo type topwater.

bleah, ugly baits, I'd love to fish them:lol: Are u sure this are your first hardbait paint jobs?

Well if this is your first effort at painting baits, you've been waisting time doing other stuff. Although all that other tinkering helps. Nice looking stuff, especially if this is trully your first foil!
And abstract can be sooooooo good! At least at catching fisherman

Thanks guys, as usual your are too kind. I'll be hitting the local hobby stores this weekend looking for a knife and I can see a whole bunch of other stuff. And yes 76gator this really is my first foil.
