Some muskie baits

Tip:when trying to get the perfect balance or sink rate take a block of wood and drill 3 or 4 different size holes to use for your weighting.pour hot lead in.. Hot glue or tape the lead plugs to your prototype to find the balence and rate you want. Now you know where and how deep to drill on all of them.

Scrolling thru my camera rolI found these. The last one is not a flat sided traditional glider but it has caught a bunch of fish in fast moving deep water with the same retrieve I would use in slower water with a 'regular' glider. I made 2 and sold 1 and wish I had kept better records

Great looking lures! How long did it take for you to dial them in and come up with a repeatable pattern?

 

It took 3 trips to town pond. I also make my own tails used a stainless screw glued into butt I just crazy glue them on. Caught a 4lb bass at the pond last March the first time trying the finished pumpkin seed color although I did make them for muskie
