Just finished up this guy yesterday to enter into Tackle Undergrounds tackle making contest. Its a hard bodied Spinnerbait Bluegill. I carved it from a chunk of Black Birch and air brushed it with the stuff @Brazzy so Kindly hooked me up with. Definitely the hardest bait I have ever made and painted. I don't even know if I want to fish with it.
I make baits, so when I fish, I am product testing! And when I am not using baits I make, I am researching.

Thanks Guys! I actually got the idea from a video on Youtube. Yeah no pike for this guy. I think I am going to make another one of these though and keep this one. I had a buddy that passed a little while back and would have loved this thing. I am making a shadow box with some of his baits that he threw around and I think I want to put this one in with them. I do want to test it out though a bit to see how the action is.
