    just finished making this new model. if you've seen any of my previous posts you'll know that my first one was a little slug, and it works pretty damn good.

    i kept moving, and used the rest of my silicone to make the mold. i made the model with the 3d printer at my school, the edges were a bit sharp but it turned out alright in the end. i used acetone vapor to melt the plastic lines together(the look that the 3d printer gives when printed) this gave the bait a glossy look in the end.

    i did the whole molding process, too lazy to explain all that.
    i just poured the first baits today, kinda difficult to pour in the small tail.
    here's the result, and note that it still getting the hang of pouring it.

    i tested it with the fish in my tank..
    they totally digged it on a drop shot, and had a moderate response on a 1/16 oz jig head.
    i plan to test these sometime this week or this weekend, so i'll keep yall updated.

    Spotties will eat pretty much anything that mimicks a fish, and even short halibut will as well. My brother caught a halibut on a chicken nugget at the ferry landing.
