This bait was supposed to be a ghost pattern. It was undercoated then wiped down with a moist cloth. The result was paint in the texture of the bait but not on the smooth surfaces. Pretty interesting look. Anyway, it has a semi transparent look with a reflective belly color much like the silver you see in minnows and a color shift from the sides to backbone that has that yellow greenish look that is common in many baitfish. There's a slight dust of color around the eyes and a darkened backbone with just a touch of bluish grey on the upper back. To make the silver/black eyes stand out the upper gill plate is dusted with a pearlish color seen in many species of fish. Overall its a pretty interesting look....hope it catches fish as well as it looks.
