    Make some double blade and light to bulge the surface over thick weeds. It's exciting seeing a nice wake before the strike

    Are you dancing around trying to put in an order?

    These are the first test batch of finish lures to get some soak time next week to see how shallow and deep I can work them. Single bodies I’m hoping to be able to fish zero to five feet deep based on where I hold the rod tip, and the double body ones in the five to ten foot range.

    Hang on. Gotta see if I have pics. They're for musky and I prefer marabou. It's a confidence thing.

    Looks like I only have pics of gold and black. My favorite colors anyway. Mepps marabou is for comparison

    They've got really awesome action in the water. They flow a LOT better than bucktail. Too big for pike though.

    Fun making your own. Especially when you get one that absolutely slays them. It's one of a kind.

    All of those look great. I have what I need, I just keep getting sidetracked.
    I better get busy. Thanks for the inspiration.

    It's super addictive. I started to just have a few extra options. Now I have 100s of options lol

    Here are some finished lures. Number 7 Indiana blades and number 8 Colorado blades. I didn't really like the way the double bladed ones turned out. I think they had too much rear weight bias to get the blades turning reliably, so I only made a couple. Maybe later in the year I'll find some lighter bodies, or try some with some extra weight in front of the blades for better balance. But for now, I've got plenty to play with.

    Some of those are rattle can special two tones. The paint bled under the edge of the tape more than I had hoped, but it still accomplishes the same goal - part solid color, part shiny. And if you are wondering, the dark blue is Evinrude E-tec touch up paint. I really liked the way they came out.

    Those would be good for lake trout too I think. Out East that is a big thing. Put a inline spinner behind a dodger while on a cannon ball. I’ve been wanting to make some up.

    These are probably a bit heavy for that, but swap out the heavy bodies for something much lighter and you’d be in business.
