Here is a new jointed trout lure I am working on, let me know what you think.

If I did that you'd think I was an envious Crumudgen. very Excellent.:yay:

Sweet! Please show us the final and some detail on how you joined the segments. That's always a pain in the neck for me.

Thanks for the compliments guys! I decided to fill the wholes down the side of the lure. It was supposed to represent the latteral line, but I filled them with wood filler. I can always paint a line on. :)

I use cotter keys to attached the jointed parts together. Pre-drill the holes and link up two cotter keys and insert one with one-ton epoxy. Do one side at a time and it will hold any fresh water fish.

The problem I have with making trout baits is balancing the weight to get the plug to swim!

Good looking trout Jason, what kind of trout is it going to be? I vote brookie!

Thanks Daymon, I think this guy is going to be a brown trout or rainbow. I still haven't decided.

Thanks Vhype for the suggestion!
