If you didn't say it was an immitation I would have guessed you re-painted a MegaBass. Great job! It is a great looking bait.

Trick Trout I used to make alot of topwaters and did alot of experimenting with a walking popper. I really dont make to many hardbaits anymore nowadays I pour alot of plastics, because I never got an airbrush to make nice paint jobs but I could carve up a bait or two.

If you ever have some freetime give this a try.

Popper with the bottom lip extending down more than usuall but shave the lip so its not a hard edge so it can pass over the water fast when you add the line tie point in down towards the water. This will make you bait a great walker and popper. To pop the lure hold the rod tip up and twich and to walk hold the rod tip down it works quite well. I made one of these and cought many fish with it just painted white pearl, with one of your paint jobs it shoul be dynamite.
