    C1B45979-1659-47AB-9875-7581B2CA0BE6.jpeg Wanted a bluegill glide bait for around the spawn and summertime fishing, took a piece of poplar and carved up a blank. Weighted the lure with pieces of steel rod in the bottom, took some stainless wire and epoxied in hook hangers and some hangers for the hinges.
    Decided to go with the feather treble hook for a tail for short bites and bed fishing, air brushed a gill pattern, and epoxy clear coat.
    It is really interesting to learn a totally new bait you really need to spend time observing the action and trying small details in the retrieve. This thing has a wild action, I can burn it fast and stop it and it cuts hard and gets fish to react, or just a subtle glide action, or a traditional glide snapping back and forth action.
    The more I fish it the more it is becoming one of my favorite lures.

    Great looking lure it’s always a bonus to catch something on a home made lure, the best feeling in my opinion.

    Yeah I have many prototypes that only have gotten followers or a couple bites, keep at it I am always striving to find the next new bait the fish haven’t seen.
