Wooden Swimbait

9 posts in this topic

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.

Nice Larry,

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

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.

That is a kickass swimbait Larry B)

Ya might want to upload it to photo gallery so it doesn't get burried by posts in the forums.

Tight Lines,

Shawn
