Next up a deep diving crank with a circuit board lip for a Bass pro on the Missouri side.

I don't even know how you came up with that lip design there Cuz! It hurts my head to even contemplate it. I don't think I'm going to be able to build anything for awhile...but congrats on another great bait!

Actually now that you mentioned it that pic kind contourts the lip design. I didn't really think I was doing anything too original. Just trying to make my own...out of balsa.....that casts well.....and works... Here is a pic that shows the lip pattern a little better.

I think it is great. The general rule of steep angle for shallow swim and shallow angle for deep swimmers is a good guide, but not the whole story. It's all about balance.

Your solution will certainly help when it comes to casting and the good width of the lip will really shift the water for a wide action.

Congratulations on a beautiful job Hoosie.
