Hi guys, with what I learned from this site as well as JP's Out2llunge website I built a few 13" Jake/Grandma style crankbaits. I headed out to the Ottawa River on the 2 Oct. and trolled one of my baits. 30 minutes into my first run my reel was screaming and after a short battle I landed a fat 48" Musky. It's always nice to land one of these fish but hooking it on one of you're homemade baits is priceless! Here are the pics of the bait and the fish.

That's awesome Marc! Nice looking bait and fish. Has that bait got a pretty big wobble to it?
I've been using aluminum for lips in some new models that I'm making. It certainly adds a lot of flash.

JP the lip on this Jake was suppose to go on a Hooker style bait it's almost 3" wide and 4.5" long. I tried the lip on a Jake for the hell of it and was happy with the result. The bait does have a big wobble, sort of like the original Jake put with more body roll. It also handles speeds of 4-5 mph well.

Nice going. There's nothing better than catching muskys on your own baits. I've been using nothing but my own baits the last few years. Jim

Way to go Marc! That is a nice fish on a nice bait! Did you cut the lip? If yes what did you use?

I can see the excitement in your face, that is great. Nice looking bait and awesome fish. I just wish bass grew that big!

I cut the lip out with a jig saw and finished it with a bench grinder and a file.
