Well, I poured the first bait today. As you can see the bottom tail fin didnt come out all the way, but I only had time for one try today (mold takes 20 minutes to cool after each bait).
It still needs eyes, waiting on them to show up. And then a clear coat on it to seal the eyes and that hole in the middle.
The hole in the middle is from the internal support, it has a tube inside that will not allow the brass eye to pull out.
You rig it by putting your line down through the brass eye, then tie on a treble hook and stick it in the bottom of the bait. Maybe I’ll snap a picture of a rigged one tomorrow. It is basically just a soft plastic jerk bait, like a zoom fluke on steroids.
5.5” and about 1oz without weights. It may need a nail weight in the belly, but we’ll find out when I go to test it.
It isnt the best looking bait in the world, but I gave it my best shot.
