do you guys still remember me? i'ts been so long!
here is my newest big bait. its a bluegill designed to be fished on a bass bed.
what do you think?
(too big to post pictures, sorry)

I think its pretty cruel to stick a hook through the head of a live bluegill and call it your lure. Looks great DSV How does it swim?

well i never intended it to "swim", instead i wanted it to be more of a sight fishing bait for spawning largemouth, so i just wanted it to sit nose down, which it does.
but i got curious and gave it a test pull and it does have a slow wobble, not realistic at all, but at least its got something going for it other than a sit-still an wiggle bed fishing bait.

I'll take a half dozen, in egg batter, and a side of fries-hold the hooks!

i came up with these fins while trying to sleep one night. i haven't seen anybody else make them like this, and i think they're gonna be pretty good. i don't want to say anything about them until i give them some good test runs though.

You sure that's not a encapsulated bream? Looks real enough:yay:

DSV, nice job man. That looks incredible. Lets us know how you do in the spring w/ that bad boy. Keep up the hard work.

That really looks nice. Nice photo finish! So let me take a guess on the fins..... Some type of epoxy on wax paper, with die pulled threw as it is setting up? If not chew on that one guys!!!!
