Super.  Love the eyes.

 

Any thought of going with a number of small BB's in future knocker baits?

 

Let us know what you catch with them.

Knockers/rattles are challenging but I have thought some about using them in a lipless crank. I have not had much success with rattling baits though. What conditions would you recommend a rattling bait for?

 

This Fall I caught a 3.5 pounder on the frog.

Nice stuff man. I just picked up a few things to try carving out my own to get through winter boredom. What wire do you use for hooks and line tie. 

I just picked up some 18 Gaige but now looking at pics that seems to small.

They are made out of the dividers of Plano boxes. The plastic slightly floats. On topwaters, when paused, they move subtly on the surface as they try to float flat on the surface. After a pause, for a good 5 seconds they move in the water. I’ve been very pleased with how they turn out.

I use 3/32 inch cotter pins from Home Depot. I glue them in with the expanding waterproof gorilla glue. Even though they don’t screw in they hold plenty strong. It’s an easy and cheap solution. BTW the 1/16 cotter pins bend too easily.
