Finally Finished this stupid thing.. started it in November... been tinkering around with it on and off since...  spent two long nights just trying to get the paint scheme to come out the way I wanted, and finally wrapped it up last night. Just gotta tie up a nice looking tail  and belly hook and she’s in business...based it off some pictures I took of bunker I caught in the area. (not that they differ much fish to fish) Hand carved the whole thing, not sure I’ll be doing that again...  man I really hope she swims right...

Wow, great job.  :clap:  That’s a lot of work!  Just make sure your knots hold.

Thanks.  Id be Lying if I said I wasn’t a wee bit nervous about casting it... wind-knots haunt my dreams.. but hey, it’s a lure... It would be pretty ridiculous if i just let it sit on my work bench. Hoping to give her a toss this week, (got a pile of plugs to test out)

You might want to cast a mold of it before you send it flying.

Beautiful work. I agree a resin cast might be a good idea.

First time playing with jig skins. Turned out pretty good with a few lessons learned for next time

These look awesome. Jig Skins looks like a nice alternative to a rattle can massacre.  Will check them out. Thanks.
