how did you put the hooks on? I was thinking of buying some small eye bolts and screwing them in. Id imagine youd have to pre drill the wood and glue them too. Getting them straight would be tough for me. I only have a cordless drill.
Topwaters are great lures to get started with. As long as it floats and splashes youll eventually catch something, maybe even catch a lot. I might paint it all white, maybe some glitter and throw some finish on it to make it glossy. There is a popular saltwater surface plug that looks like a wooden dowel painted white, dusted with blue glitter and packaged for about $10!

If you make something at some point I'd be interested in seeing how you constructed it, maybe bounce some ideas off each other haha.

The first two are strong enough to not need thru-wire construction.
I am not a painter but I do alright with a regular paint brush.
I really like this one. The use of sharkteeth has become my m.o. or trademark.
