Looking better, but you can see how shading with just black makes it stick out. Practice your transitions on some paper. I watched a ton of airbrushing tutorials on YouTube and picked up a bunch of tricks from that.

Try thinning you blk more and use it to shade the seam down the back to get some depth will probably need to mix 30:70 instead of 50:50 need to be real light when shading with those mixtures and will need to heat set more often to keep it from runnin also try shading from the nose back to you gill with the same mixture to get a smooth transition from blk to brown
I think you have a nice pattern going you just need to tweak it a little

Like that backbone colorthumb. Hold the lure by the tail and mist the darker color directly at the line tie on the nose of the lure. Slightly changing the angle you hold the lure will determine where most of the color goes. Black tends to overpower other colors so use it sparingly and mist it lightly in as many layers as is needed to get the color depth you want. Sometimes it takes 5-7 passes to get it just right. Thinning paint is very important...better too thin than too can compensate for over thinning by adjusting the air pressure and distance you hold the brush from the area you're painting. If you're able to cover an area in one pass its too thick. Hope this helps. texas
