I am glad you like it Red...Approve

Was good fun, a lot smaller than than my usual lures by about 100g LOL but is good for honing the skills and increasing my wood recovery! Wink

P.S Great Website!

Hi Al' 

How big is meal size? or should I say how hungry do they get? 

Most of my lures I make are for inshore/blue water pelagics...Some are quite large 270mm long and 150-200g etc, these with an accurate cast may be lethal to bass LOL

I originally started making "plugs" inspired by US striper fisherman, but have only started to dabble in smaller freshwater lures. What size baits do you normally fish?

Pretty small by your standards - about 40 to 60 mm mate.

Al',

Cool, I can make some inbetween my other lures and see how I go, I will post up my efforts once complete....

Are you in M'borough QLD? I lived there for a stint about 8 months machining wood for Hyne and Son...before the world economy crashed Dead Must get back for a holiday.
