Some Different Types of Paddletails

Four colors of my 9" Split Belly Swimbaits,..... Brown Perch, Custom Roach, Brass Sucker and Orange Lace with Copper Scales
The last pic has a Deep 8" Paddletail in a Brass Sucker color, an 8" Shallow Paddletail in Brown Perch and 2 9" Shad bodies, one in a Perch flavor and one in Chartreuse Pikie.
While all of these baits are of the Paddletail design, each one has a slightly different action and best suits a certain set of conditions.
The split bellies are to be rigged weedless. This rigging allows them to be fished in, around and through heavy cover such as weeds, rocks and wood.
The Deep Paddletail is best suited when fishing deep water and or when a faster retrieve speed is needed to trigger a bite.
The Shallow Paddle is best suited for a surface presentation and/or when a very slow retrieve speed is needed.
The 9" shad body can be rigged on a large jig of different weights and can be fished at about any level in the water column. One of my favorite ways to use these large shad bodies is to rig them behind a pair of mag. 8 or mag 10 blades.

Three More.

Three more colors of swimbaits.
Pics 1 & 2 are of a new variation of a orange tail Firetiger.
Pics 3 & 4 are Chartreuse Pikie
The last 2 pics are Perch. This pattern is a little different than my usual Perch pattern. I think this one looks a little more natural.

Hope you all like'em !!

Thanks for stopping by for a look.

A Couple More Flavors

Here's two more colors in several styles of swimbaits.
The first 2 photos are of the color Brass Sucker and the last 2 are of a new custom pattern. It is orange and black lace pattern with copper scales. The one changes it's look depending on the angle that you look at the bait, from one angle you see all the copper scales and as the viewing angle changes the scales disappear and all you see is the orange and black pattern.

Just a few pics of some of the baits I've been working on lately. There is some Big Boys, some Widetails, some Ribbontails, some Weedless Ribbontails and also some Split Belly Paddletails. The color of the baits in the 1st 3 photos is Lace Walleye, the 4th, 5th & 6th pics is called Brown Perch and the last 3 are of a custom Roach color.
I'll post a few more colors in a few days when I get them finished.

Due to a lot of requests I've decided to have some shirts made. Here's a photo of one of the first few I got. If any of my blog readers would like a T-shirt, they can be purchased by sending me an email. These are a very high quality shirt that is made from a material called Ultra Cotton, it's a pre shrunk material . The logo is embroidered in red thread on the left chest. In the email please include the size you want. The cost is $20.00 each plus shipping. I'm working on getting the pricing for some sweat shirts and possibly some hats also. When I get the cost information I'll post it.
