spare tire

small mouth

9 posts in this topic

Hi, This is a smallmouth crankbait I made. Unlike the largemouth on an earlier post, I left off the dorsal fin, and tried to get a little more detail on the head area. Please let me know if there is something I can improve on.

I dont care to much for the red on the gill area, it was carved out , mabey should of left it alone.

thanks

Tim

spare, I think they look great too. Personally I prefer the lip cut to be a little deeper just for added insurance, but that's just me. I think if you're epoxying in the lip, scuffing the unexposed lip surface first, it will be fine. They really look excellent, man.

I also like the shape and paint on the smallmouth. As far as gills, I'm among those who usually like them - just a touch to show a baitfish in trouble. If you cut out a template for them, they'll come out very neat and you can use them multiple times.

Thanks guys for all the kind words. I'm kinda new to this but I'm having alot of fun with it. I do scuff up the lip surface and drill a couple of holes for the epoxy to go . thanks again everyone.
