Above are a couple of shots of a glider I finished using the plastic for the body.
The glider runs deep and has a fast action, which is something I favor in a musky bait. I like the bait to dart at speed to trigger strikes.
The grandma type bait that I posted previously on this thread (the one that sort of glows in the light) was a failure. It will not run. I'm finding that the properties of the plastic do not lend themselves to a floating type bait. Although the plastic does in fact float, it seems to have a minimal amount of bouyancy and sinks easily...therefore the minnow-type bait tends to roll over too easily.
This evening I was out musky fishing (scored a nice fat 36 incher by the way), and I tried the bait shown below (prior to painting it this time
}....it runs excellent. I had it going 5.5 mph while trolling and it ran straight and well.
