Here's a trout swimbait that I made recently. This fellow is made from clear white pine and features handcarved detail. The tail is aluminum. The hooks are size 3/0. The Lexan beak is also handmade. Overall length is a little over 9 inches. I gave it a quick fieldtest the other day and boy does this lure wiggle! Comments always welcome.

Now make that in a perch pattern or a crappie pattern and the musky guys will love it!

The tail stay up and down or when swimming does it swirl around in a circular pattern?

Look closely to the pic! It's kind of standing right up. I don't believe it can swirl. It's a screw eye tight on the aluminium piece, at least from my point of view

Thanks for all the great comments. Much appreciated! The tail is mounted on a screweye. The tail flaps back and forth. It does not spin.
