... I never see any threads about ya'll making painting your own spooks. Is there a reason for that? or are they just not as popular as crankbaits?
Spooks are great baits...here are a few prototype patterns I did earlier this year:
Basscat was kind enough to supply the feathered trebles. I thought the frog pattern was a sure thing, and it caught its share of bass, but the top pattern seems to be the most consistent of the four. Thinkin' about dressing it up with a lateral line similar to Don's money spook.
