A friend had a bunch of baits that rusted, and he gave them to me to play around with. He said he didn't care what I did, so I've been experimenting with patterns--tweaking some or completely new. So, we have a different blue gill pattern, shad, and yellow bass. I really like the color of the yellow bass, but it all went to hell when trying to freehand stripes. I think they will catch fish with crooked lines, but a yellow bass has pretty straight lines with an offset on the end of a few toward the tail.
