Imsorry its just you mentioned musky jerkbait in the thread title and gliders in some places are called jerkbaits in the musky world. Goggle rollie and helens musky shops site and key in jerkbaits and you will see what comes up. Musky terms and bass fishing terms for baits are alittle different thats why all the musky guys were responding with glider info.

It's really no problem. I'm a bass fisherman too, so when I say jerkbaits, i think of dive and rise baits and twitchbaits. I call glide baits gliders, but like you said, in some places jerkbaits are called gliders. And Rollie and Helen's is a great store, i've bought a few things myself from them.

Since musky fishing is about 90% of my fishing that I do for myself sometimes I get lost in the terms.

I finally got around to testing the bait in my friend's pool, and it swims perfectly! As far as I could tell, it hit 8 feet easily, and i'm hoping i can get it down deeper than that. I am working on painting it Walleye color for the muskie in the reservoir where I fish. When it's done i will post a picture in the gallery. It wanders a bit at higher speeds, but im not worried about that because I want it to be a slow trolling lure.
