When I was shaping the bait I drew a line 2/3 of the way from the front of the bait towards the rear. This point is where the front and rear were tapered to. It was left 3/4" thick at this point and tapered down to 3/8" at both the nose and tail of the bait. The sides and top are fully rounded with the sides being sort of a shallow curve as the bait is much taller than it is thick. This is the first bait that has been shaped with the front taper being so far back and it swims better than anything I've made so far. And therein lies my question. Is this true of most gliders or is it different because this bait is so much shorter than the longer gliders built for pike and musky? Can the amount of side to side movement be increased or decreased by where the center of the taper is?
The attached picture only shows a side view. If a straight on view down the length of the bait is needed I can take another pic.
