6 1/4" Glidebait - Carp/smallie/largie Imitations

1 post in this topic

Hi guys, first post here. I thought I’d share a swimbait I’ve been tinkering with over winter.

 

Hoping it get smashed come pre-spawn (now only about a month away).

 

About 16cm ( 6 1/4 inches). made from wood. I used the laminated picture method as I don’t have an airbrush (nor the skills to use one). I’ve made a Carp and Smallie imitation and have a Largie getting ready for it’s epoxy coat. Bluegill and Tilapia imitations are next

The main idea behind the design was for it to run just off the bottom (when fished off a Caroliner type rig). As it’s buoyant, it actually makes a good surface lure as well – obviously without any weight on the line.

 

Here’s a quick video of it in the pool.

 

 

Hopefully thing will warm up a  soon and I can take it out for some bass.
