Sexy Shad!! Why not call it a shady shad!! Cause something is shady about that shad! But sometimes you have to do it in the dark!! If you turned on the lights you might reconsider!

Ok guys, I can take a hint. Everyone is makeing their own version of Sexy Shad. I should have done more research before posting. Thanks for all the information:worship: I will no longer waste your time. Thanks. Maverick

Wow... I don't post here often anymore...at least not as often as I used to, so maybe my vote doesn't count for much. It just seems to me that when someone posts here particularily looking for someone to do some work for him that we should probably be more respectful and keep the sarcasm to a minimum. A few of you acted like trekkies at a convention argueing over episode names. I never knew there we "lure geeks" but I guess there are. Just My opinion..... go ahead let the rocks fly I got my devcon coated helmet on. :wink:

It was a cheap attempt to humor most of the regulars here on the site. If you were offended I am sorry. For the record that particular pattern has been around for many years, take a look at a BPS catalog and you will find that most crankbait/jerkbait manufacturers have their own version of the Luckycraft color Chartreuse Shad. Strike king is blowing smoke up the everyday angler's butts to get them to buy this hot new color that KVD came up with. If anyone knows anything about KVD he did the same type of deal with the Schubert's Tubes and the Strike King Tubes. His brother Randy was a large distributer/tackle shop in Michigan and was a distributer for Schuberts Tubes. KVD catches fish on them and all of a sudden it was a Strike King prototype, next season and Poof!! Strike King has a super salty tube with KVD's pic all over the bag!! Happens all the time in the fishing industry. Everyone here at this site can learn a valuable lesson fr0m this!! Everybody pays and no one rides for free!!

I aint sure who came up with it first, but I sure appreciate whoever it was because I have literally painted a few hundred of that pattern over the past several years.

The first pattern I saw was on a Lucky Craft Wooden Sammy. And that was before the plastic Sammy came along.

DP, that was a Sexee Shad, not a Sexy Shad! I think trying to pin down who "invented" a paint scheme is a total waste of time. "There is nothing new under the sun".

Uh, I invented Kentucky Wonder, I swear, a totally original scheme. Blades named it. It was a cloudy day though. Bobby Kelly has a Shad color that no one else has. Probably everyone around here done something totally orginal, and I'll bet you have too Bob!

I'm not saying you can't "invent" a paint scheme that won't be original, at least to you and 99% of they guys who see it. There are an infinite number of colors in the spectrum and an infinite number of points between any two given points in mathematics. But I believe 99% of "original" schemes, in their major color elements, have been done by somebody else, sometime else. Maybe the painter didn't sell as many crankbaits, or was just a hobby builder and so was never recognized as the "famous originator" of the paint scheme. There is a long tradition of paint schemes from which we all borrow and/or build upon. None of us builds in a vacuum.

Did I ever tell you guys I invented DUCK TAPE!! Well that is what you guys know it as...I called it fix all tape!! Then this guy from Dillwood.. Goes by the name of Dick Duckworth. Took my tape at my wife's christmas party.. Ding dong me didnt write down the formula to the sticky mix.. just like when I paint a lure for the first time.. I never write down the mix or how the hell I came up with it.. anyway... Old Duckworth is FAMOUS!!! and as you can see my life is so far gone... I paint fishing lures out of depression!! And hangin out at TU all day long!!

Birdie birdie in da sky.. Dropped some do do in my eye!! I will not worry. I will not cry.. Im just glad strike king reps dont fly!!
