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.

Hi Jason great looking lure, what lenght are you making it?

Thanks Tuningguru. It's going to be roughly 5 1/2". I'm going to make a 10" version next.

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

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!

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!
