Big Baits, Big Fish?

The top bait is 16" long, 1.4 inches wide and weighs 1 pound 5 ounces without hooks. The Turmoil on the bottom is 7 inches long for comparison. Wanted to show you the whole bait but it wouldn't fit on my scanner, lol.

Thanks for the positive feedback. The lure is so big that I just can't imagine casting it. It does have a wonderful huge glide to it though. The big bait will easily glide 2 or 3 feet each direction! With all that weight once it gets going it keeps going! Fun to build too. It's so much easier to paint something this size, could have used a paint roller, lol.

Did U go to the auto body shop & borrow their spray-gun Jed? :P Good job as usual, time to get my GT popper rod out from the closet, my regular crankbait rods won't stand a chance against that monster bait 8O Oh don't be surprise if u get a small fish on that bait LOL, my record was a 2in sebarau (jungle perch) on a 2 3/4in lure :rolleyes:

Nice work, River. I was just reading an article about how few really huge baits are out there for the musky freaks.
