    Here's what's been on my plate lately. A good friend of mine decided to get into shaping a shad profile glide bait. I got lucky enough to paint for him. We are working with around four patterns, and two ROFs. Here's some basic pictures of progress. Just sharing. We WILL be selling these eventually in a few months, but for now any feedback is appreciated. Ill also post up some swim/catch videos soon as well. Enjoy fellas...

    Baits look killer! The shape mimics a big shad and a panfish real nice. I like the natural eye but the skull flare is cool too.

    Are you using Alumilite Super Plastic for the lure body? If so, it is GREAT STUFF! Impervious! Also, are you using a topcoat to lock in the beautiful colors and patterns you've pained onto the lure body?

    BTW- the flames you've painted are INSANE! That is a skill in and of itself. There are very, very few people that could paint flames and actually make it look like a photograph capturing flames burning. EXCELLENT! Did you research and find a tutorial for doing that, or did it just came naturally?
