Trippy design...no one can accuse you of copying their stuff!!

Well Jed I was inspired by your Beer Belly, and I feel that your bait is the benchmark for glides, your bait broke a year long slump for that I'm indebted .

That is a unique bait. I would be interested to know how it works.

Looks like it would have some wild wiggle in the water!

Holly brass knuckles! That is very neat! That is definitely outsie the box. Nice job!

If one misses the hooks, maybe he'll get his nose stuck in that hole.
Which reminds me, I once caught a 5-6 lb. bass on a Norman's DD-22 that didn't have a single hook in the fish. The bait was wedged lengthwise in her mouth, bill to tail, and she was unable to spit it.

beautiful bait and design and paint, love it, and being inspired by jed was a great starting point( that boy can make a plug, ) and then you took it and did the way outside thinking out of the box thing to it, and i agree would call it the brass knuckle:)

Thanks guys, everyone that sees it says Brass Knuckles, LOL, the action if fished with 10-12 inches or a bit more of slack and snapped(like fishing a WTD top-water) is about 180 on its own axis, you can almost suspend it, but with gentle pulls it will glide 20 inches or so, on the straight retrieve it wonders back and forth 6-8 inches off each side, on a dead fall it has a slight wobble, also it put my Personal best in the boat last summer, I'm just starting to get some ready for this season and hope to have some for sale soon, Muskie Magnet told me to envision the action you want in a bait then just build it, and there was allot of thinking into this one, from the refraction of light, to the angle of the sides, the finish, weighting, has all come from information on this board and the help of a few friends.

Well that sounds good, but I see a hole in your logic...lol
Hey and you could carry a bunch of those on a stick!
The Hol-ee Grail of lure design!
I'll stop now. Nice work!

What if you put a piece of foam in the hole and fill it up with your favorite scent!!
Posted 20 January 2007 - 06:59 PM
Jed, someone a long time ago described just such a thing....the scent plugged lure...and posted a pic too. Good job muskiefool.
