look at a bass pro magazine or go on-line and just look at the different colors of cranks that are out there. Then use your imagination and create your own.

It depends on where you fish and what you are after.But my advice is keep it simple to start,try copying an exsisting pattern that you know catches fish.

I'm still pretty new to making hardbaits myself, but I'm with Tally. Bass Pro Shops is a wonderful resource to get ideas on colors/patterns.

Think about what is working in your area and what type of forage the fish (whatever species you are targeting) feed on and go from there.

A very simple pattern that will catch fish in clear water is just to paint your bait pearl white and put a green stripe down it's back. You'd be amazed at how great some of the simple patterns work!

Have fun and it's great to see a teenager on the forum and making their own baits! Best of luck!
