I think you did a great job! Those are some fine looking lures my friend, particularly like the chart/orange guy in the middle.

Good Idea With the Skirts ..What are they? they look like Limber Legs

yes, the skirts are silicone limber legs I saw them at the local tackle store and thought they would add a lot to the lure. I made these five with the skirts and five others without. The lure action appears to be the same with or without the skirts but in the water the skirts make the lures look alive.

I was suprised to find skirts that matched my color scemes. When I made the baits I wasn't planning on the skirts. I just happened to be out shopping with "she who must be obeyed" and waltzed over to the sporting goods department to kill time and get some ideas when I saw the skirts.

Nothing wrong with those baits Cheesehead! I like the colors schemes and the skirts really do complete the look. Great job!

I would like to see the gold one up close. That is a very nice bait, what am I saying they all are nice baits. A lot better than my first bait. You could not pay me enough to post my first lure I made.
Keep at it.
