If I didn't know better, I'd say that minnow was drunk.
Great action I would say!
Got any of that wine saoked lumber left? I know a bait I need to copy.
Thank you for sharing!!

There is no shortage of wine staves around here, but any hardwood should work. I hollowed it out from the belly to the tail, installed some SS balls to act as a rattle and weight transfer system. Then I put (4) 1/16 weights in the belly (two in front, one in the center and one in the tail). It turns out to weigh exactly the same as a similar size rattletrap, but it suspends instead of sinking like a rock.

I am sure it is a little harder to duplicate the action of this bait than your average crank. But that won't deter me from trying . Fantastic unique hunting action! And from your testing, we know bass like it too. Really nice!!
