I would love to see smalljaw to put his own spin on this pattern and post to his youtube channel.

I've been working on perfecting this thing and I think I'm getting close. 1oz head with a powder painted magnum blade, 10/0 Gamakatsu black nickel hook, wire keeper, upgraded line tie, no split ring connection to fail, with a hand poured 6" fat impact style trailer. Looking for some big mommas that go "thump" in the night.

Simple pattern, wonder if the walleye would look at them.  I kind of had smallmouth and clear water on my mind when I painted them.

Chartreuse belly and purple back squarebills have been a solid producer for me for largemouth for years.

That's a pretty thing. I gotta ask about that blade and the doohickey that replaces the duo lock snap. I've never seen a setup like that. Is that a tighter action?

Tighter action is kind of relative with a bait this size. The line tie doesn't effect the action, it's just much stouter than a snap. The blade is poured directly onto the head so there's no split ring so it can handle the bigger fish I'm hoping for with this bait.

Maybe action is the wrong word. It looks like it might not chatter or vibrate as much since there's less of a gap between the holes in the blade and the line tie, but I'm probably wrong.

 

Did you come up with that blade/line tie design, or did you buy that? Is that a link from a chain? I like it.

 

It would look even better with bigger eyes.

There's actually quite a bit of space in there, just hard to see in the picture. It's an actual line tie that you can buy from tackle building supply stores. 

 

I don't usually even put eyes on the ones I make for myself, I just did in this one for a picture. On light colored heads I'll draw an eye on with a Sharpie, otherwise I don't worry about the bait having eyes or not.

First attempt at wire tying a jig.  I didn't get the skirt super even but that will come with time.  Going to use them as bed jigs this spring.

It’s actually a SK Shellcracker. Great plastic with a very subtle action.  They are a huge pia to get rigged stright however.

Tied up the rest of the jigheads.  I am going to end up with a million jigs I fear.

 

What's the best way to store skirting tabs?  I was thinking in the oem plastic sleeves kept in a worm binder?

I had some blades that needed to be put   into service . These baits were poured inexpensively probably less than a dollar each .The one  on the left has a Strike King blade . I picked up a whole bunch of these with the ball bearing swivel years ago for a quarter a  pack . The middle one has Excalibur offset blades . The original bait the  wire broke off last week. On  the right, i dont know what the main blade  is or where I got it . Stanley Wedge , maybe ?  The skirts are Terminator skirts that I found on clearance . Unpainted heads .The   lead is free . I have enough lead to last me for the rest of my life  and have given away a hundred lbs of it .

I use something like this on my bench and label each with what color skirt tab is in the bin. Less than $20 from Harbor Freight.

I work 2nd Shift so not much to do once I am off work.  Decided to paint a few in some real basic patterns that catch fish.

You can find these at any hardware store. I use something similar for screws and whatnot in my garage. I may need to buy a second one after seeing this
