Very nice bait there Ebby!

I bet you can't wait to get it wet and see how it runs.

can't really tell so a few questions?

is that image over foil or another background?

whats that image printed on, tissue or ...?

and is that really assembled? if it's assembled that's a very nice tight fit, great job. i've been thinking of getting into those swimbaits but time is so slim now it's hard to experiment anymore. frown

i don't think it was too quick. i know i walked a thin line before i took the plunge, and better he know now than have to be bannished for awhile.

it is not foiled that takes to much work and doesn't look that much better now i just use paper and glue or you can use the label paper that has a sticky back it is assembled but it is curved, hard to explain but i have it sitting to the joints make it curved instead of straight it is not as tight fit as the pic looks witch is good you don't want it to be to tight any other ?'s pm me- i might not respond right away because i dont check this forum as much because there are a couple other ones i like better than this one. and i think you are on TU my name on there is ebby also

thanks ebby. FM only started this forum early this year. so it's still a work in progress. biggest thing here i've seen is no one really asks questions about lure building so much yet. a few but not alot. it's hard to just come up with something to say without knowing there's an interest you know? anyway, PM's are disabled here so that's not an option. so if you get here fast that's cool. if not i'll be here whenever, lol.

i've been working on a foil sided top water but time is zero right now. i textured it so it looks like scales kind of. more like a hammered blade with squared/rectangle dips not round. mabe i'll post a thread with stages from start to finish, if i ever get time.

I am not so much into the lure building(a guy only has so much time for hobbies) but some of the work on the lures I have been seeing definitely some fine craftsmanship. Nice to see that kind of work.

Keep posting and I may have to find some time for another hobby, well I could probably squeeze it in if I quit fishing, naaww ain't gonna do that wink

Nice work,I really like the photo-finish. I haven't attempted a swim bait yet but it is on my "to do" list. See ya on the TU site.

Where does the action come from on a bait like that?

Nice looking bait, Let us know how that works out for you. I think it could be a good bait in MN.

the action is from the joints i believe, my last bait swam really well but was a little to big i hope this one swims as good

    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*  
    • Well you guys could have given me this info before.
    • Not in disagreement....most Ice gear is though.   Just trying to find some feed back on if it works well and lights up like it should.
