They look ok to me! How deep do they go? I like the paint color you chose

for them. My Fave is the Green one is there foil on it? And what types of paint are you using? And the total length of the bait and the lip It's hard to get a scale of it.

(good impression or not)......good has it. Great looking baits.

Have you field tested them? How deep do they run?

It may be just the pictures, but the lip looks a little large to me.

And, the lip eyelet appears too close to the end. I believe I read somewhere that the eyelet should never be closer to the end than

half of the length of the lip. That's why I was curious about how deep and how they run. And, I'm just learning.....as I am just now starting my first bait. That's the real reason for asking the questions.

The shape and paint job looks really great!

@ROBZILLA

Yes there is foil on it. On the other one there is foil too, but you can't see it from the picture. Anyway you can only see a slim lyne, just as i wanted. Don't know how deep they go yet, because i only tested them in my bath tub. I believe they'll go at about 10feet or so, because they are sinking. Couldn't make them floating with the wood i use. I couldn;t get my hands on some balsa yet. I don't even know how will i know at aproximataly what depth they'll run.

@Magic Bob

These are my first ones as you may have read. From what i noticed, you can make the lip aproximatelly how long you want(in theory), because the parte of the lip behind the line clip feels to me like it behaves like it would be a paret of the body. As high as you go with the line clip as wider it would wobble, and as low as you go with it on thw lip, the narrower it will wobble.

Sorry! Forgot about the lenght. The main body of the lure is 5 cm long, and the lenght of the lip is 3,5-3,7cm. May be someone knows about how deep they will go??!!

Some other pics, and better view of the green patern for robzilla! By the way i use acrylics.

The foild one you like is double epoxy coated. It has a layer over the foil, after that i painted it, and added the last epoxy layer. The opoxy i use is kind of thick, but i'll get envirotex next month or so.

They say for every inch out from the tip of the bait it will dive ten feet. That's why they are asking how deep it goes!

Looks like the picture it's a 2inch bill. so 20 or so feet it would dive.

You might find that with the added weight on the lip with the hole in the lexan it might want to snap in half if you get a big lunker on. "just a thought"

Hope they don't go that deep. I just want them to go 10 feet, and am satisfied with the result. I'll se how it'll go. The depthe depends on the line out too, not only on the lip of the lure. They don't plummit directly into the deep, they plummit progresivly.

I'm very curious wow they will do. I really need to make some floating ones, with those it's easyer to control the depth they go to. With these sinking ones, if i stop the line they go even deeper.

I'm not trolling them. I'm a shore fisherman, but i have some fishing spots with deep water starting exactly from the bank of the river. And i will hopefully fish them succesfully on trout in some deep water lakes.

I won't be able to tell you more about them, until i'll check them out in real waters. Don't know when that's gonna be, because it started snowing again :((, and temperatures will plumit 20 bellow 0 in the nexte days. So i'm gonna be makeing some more lures till the seson begins :)

Hope won't have that problem with the lip. I thought about it, and made some more, just in case it snaps, so i can just put another one on the spot.

How are you makeing your deep divers? Some pictures?(not those with molded lips, with the line clip irectly on the lip----just the plain old deep divers)
