I'm sorry if this question has come up before, my "google-fu" has failed me. I'm new to creating lures out of wood and I'm failing at the bill. My jerkbait darts when I twitch it, but it has no action when reeling it back to the boat. How do I know how far out of the body I should extend the bill and how wide should I make the widest part? I'm asking for more than just jerkbaits. I enjoy fishing squarebills too, and I want to try some coffinbills as well.
Is there a length x width x height style formula?
