Jointed Glider

7 posts in this topic

After seeing some excellant examples on here I took one of my stock glider blanks and "V" cut it. Was pretty fortunate to only destroy a couple before I got them to swim like I wanted. Didnt do the tail fin but may try it on the next generation.

Stats: 6",3oz,pine shad pattern,neutral buoyant.

Jerk!

Nice onre! How does it swim!! I just started on them. I destroyed a couple as well until i got the movement i wanted. Mine got a bit heavyer than i wanted it, but it works as designed to work. I'll do some more as soon as i have time for them......

Nicely done! Next time we hit the lake, we'll have to do it a little earlier than usual so we can test swim a bunch of new stuff :lol:

nice looking lure congratulations,if you don't mind me asking does it still have a glidebait action when jerked?only ask because when i've tried something similar in the past they won't glide they only work cranked on a straight retreive.if they do glide how do you acheive it?

Thanks Mark

Great looking lure.

I am curious too, since gliders "glide" then pause, glide, pause, I am wondering how well the tail wobbles.

It only wiggles when you steady crank it or reel all the slack and give it a long pull. Then it will swim hard for a couple feet then just hang. I cannot get it to go side to side but it really wasnt meant to. I was thinking of doing a straight bodied glider with a jointed tail section. I tried it recently with a large spinner blade on the tail but it dampened the action to the point that it just slid straight.Thanks for the praise guys.

Jerk!
