Ok. I made my alabama rig, turned out better than i thought. Thanks for the tips guys!
I'm toying with the idea of making me a swimbait or rather a wake bait. I have no idea where to start or what to do. I want to know how to joint it all together and how to make it from start to finish: is wood ok to make it out of or is a resin better. I'm new at this, so no experience at all.
Also the plastic tails that i see on a lot of baits (namely Tater Hogs swimbaits) where can i get these or do i need to make them myself? I will take all information and guidance I can get.
Thanks in advance.

spend a week or so just browsing this site. I can promise you that you will find about 75% or more of the information you need to get going.
What are your plans? Do you just want a 1 off bait or are you trying to reproduce?

For starters. I want one or two. Especially two in case I lose one and I am actually catching fish on it. HaHa. I will have a lot of time over Christmas break, so i figured i'd give it a shot.

Go to the Member submitted tutorial section. There is a good PVC swimbait tutorial. Good luck
