I like your split tail design there, it's very similar to some I have been working on. I would use a much smaller lip still if that's the size you currently have. It should work even better.

Husky!Here in Quebec it cost about 100$for a 2.4lbs kit!!!!Realy expensive up here!!Cheers.Dan

There's got to be a way around that, because that's just plain gouging.

Dan have you tried with a round lip bit shorter than the one in pic ?

If not try & let us know how it acts i bet it will get a wide wobble

that will attract muskies&pike in the shallows

That's really cool Dan, I'm glad it worked for you. I know there's alot of work in building the prototype, the mold, the materials, etc., etc. Awesome bait buddy.
