Those are lovely. Love the crisp paint work on the red head. Great job.

Great looking plugs, I love fishing Pikies when we have that size bait around.

Did you get the lips laser etched?

Finished up a batch that's been hanging around, should be good to go for this Fall, they're smaller, 5-1/4" + tail, around 1.8oz., no weight added.

Something I've been working on while there aren't any more bass to use this on.:howdy:

It's just a test plug, so it isn't for looks. lol

I made this a while ago, let it sit , and then got around to testing it. When I first cast it, and did a retrieve I said to myself, this ain't gonna work. But I used to use something like this years ago in plastic and liked the idea. So, I took it home and added more weight to the bottom and under the nose. Test two was that it sat better and retrieved better, but still not what I wanted. I saaid to myself , Jimmy, ya gotta make tha bass feel this thing, ya gotta make her want it more than a Bunker! 

So again, I lopped off the tail and rewired it. Kinda made me sad, because i originally had it wired with copper, and that's what I wanted in this plug and had no more on hand. So this is the what it will be, and if it does well, I will do more over the winter.

It's hand carved and 9x3/4"s:howdy:

Finished a bone handcarve. About 7 inches, 2.5 ounces. Dives about 1-2 feet with a nice tight wiggle. Has an internal weigh transfer system and casts a country mile!
