I'm new here and in aww at the work(more like art) I've seen here, you guys are amazing!
I've been drawing lure designs, studying hydrodynamics and making clay prototypes for about a year and i'm now looking to take the next step. I'm looking around at different materials, and curious what material the Bull shad is made of? It looks to be a mold of some sort? I'm a big fan of this lure, I just haven't seen any other lure that seems to use this material.

Welcome to TU!! A lot of molded baits are made from resin mixed with microballoons.

If you're just a hobbiest, or a fisherman like me who is too cheap to buy stuff, try carving your lures out of PVC trimboard by AZEK.

Awesome, thanks guys! I figured it was a resin of some sort but having never worked with a resin I wasn't sure.
@mark got some PVC board to try out, just haven't put a blade to it yet. Want to try and make a mold of my current 'clay lures' first.
