Day two: Cut it into two. Sanded most of it down to where I want it. Need to finish sanding the bottom of the back piece. Also cut out a slit for the tail. Hoping to weight it and tune it in the next couple of days. I'll make sure to keep you guys updated.

      No they swim terrible. It swims sideways. And it floats. It's a awful Swimbait @jasonrh18 it doesn't even have hooks so when the fish bites it I'm hoping ...more it will swallow it.

      It's not to hard. It's just very expensive with all the tools you need.

      How will you secure the hooks?
    12. RyanEllis 0
      No. Urethane rubber. It will be a tail like a roman made @walt_gober

      Put a layer of thick paint on first. Then airbrush it.
