Usually when I can't come up with a pattern for a bait I jump on here and look at eveyone else's baits and can come up with something. Except this time I'm drawing a blank and thought it might be interesting to see what you all might think the below bait needs to be finished.
It is a 8" Jake with foil.
Any input is appreciated.

X2 on the foiled gill plates. I'd maybe do silver foiled gill plates, White belly and some silver foil perch/firetiger stripes down the side. Then for the back maybe black scales along the shoulders and blend in straight black down the rest of the back and on top. Idk just my two cents. I like the look of silver and blue. lol

Just remember lighter bellies and darker backs are natures golden rule, so the fish blend in with the sky from below, and the bottom from above.
And red gill edges and chin are strike attractors.

I'd do some red along the gill ,white or something lighter on the belly and some interference scales down the back just my thought for whats its worth
