  1. This 8.75" trout glide has been a long time in the making, but I'm finally getting it to where I want it to be after years of testing and weeding through iterations that I wasn't 100% satisfied with. I actually started working on this particular model about a year and a half ago and only now have enough time on the water with it to feel comfortable pushing it into the final phases of prototyping. The master was carved completely by hand out of a block of basswood using only a utility knife, wood chisel, and sandpaper. I made a two-piece silicone mold of the bait so that I could pour duplicates out of resin. The tail was also carved out of wood and molded with silicone. The casting material is a flexible urethane with black glitter to replicate the trout dots on the body. The bait in the photograph is the first fishable prototype out of my new mold. It was painted with an airbrush and clear coated with KBS Diamond Clear. I did a semi sloppy job with the hand-tied Owner ST-36 feather trebles. Not sure how they will effect the swim, but they add a nice touch. Overall I am very pleased with how this bait came out. I'd love to fish the paint off this thing but will be donating it this week to support the Swimbaits for Autism fundraiser event hosted by Swimbait Culture. Check it out and thanks for looking! Dan

  8. This is a 6" crappie swimbait made entirely of natural wood. There is zero painting on this bait. Every detail was inlaid with a scroll saw. It is made from five different kinds of wood: maple for the belly, pine for the yellow of the upper back, green poplar for the back, walnut for the head and tail, and ebony for the black spots. I had to do everything twice to make two sides, and I joined the two sides with a center core of maple and poplar.

  13. Someone asked me to try and copy a Luhr Jenson speed trap, and here's my version, along with an original in a redish craw for comparison. I've included a schematic (at least, my version of a schematic) and I built mine out of Azek PVC trim. They swim really well, even when burned back on a fast retrieve. I built one out of the med weight balsa that Rayburn Ben gave me, and it's so lively I had to increase the belly hanger weight to 3.7 grams, with not rattles. I'm going to try and make a balsa bait with rattles tomorrow.
