Principles of lure design

Prototype magnum blade is just skiing to surface instead of vibrating https://drive.google.com/open?id=1upTjv ... hd-hxeVO-L. Magnum blade was made with sculptey similar to smaller version vibrating blade. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1idL2- ... MX8yulWMK1.

I’m guessing you need a heavier jig to pair w the bigger blade.

That was 3/4oz. I got some 1.5oz somewhere in shop. I think the line tie is to high or low
also. There's several sculptey jighead protypes in the works. Been adding tungsten to flex 80 and clear coat with AlumiUv to achieve flexible but firm density of blades. Rhett thanks, I just need some of you lures for trailers. The firm sculptey is easier to work with. https://youtu.be/rjDGxAikRS0

These would probably be pretty sweet on something like that
We should totally do a lure trade

Trade would be cool. 6”-8” solid Swimbaits and jerk shads are the best trailers on on magnum vibrating jigs. I have few different versions as of now: plastic, flex, stainless, copper. Hopefully have pressure pot soon to make clear blades with flashaboo/milar inserts.

9 years ago made 100 blade baits for Amazon guides with felt head for max sense attraction and durability.

Those are sick! I’ve wanted a big chatterbait to use for stripers out here on the east coast. I have a few spots they’d do very well. I do make some paddle bodies all the way up to 8-9”. Shoot me an email whenever I’ve made so many plastics over the years I’m sure we can find something that works.
