Matt, you and Russell have been really busy and I too am blown away not just by the packaging but have had a blast working with these baits. They are going to definitely be some of the top quality baits available and I have been able to catch fish rigged a lot of different ways on them. I was looking at the motion of the Flappy Craws on the back of a jig and decided last weekend to rig it pretty much weightless and was pulling it through some vegetation almost like a frog bait and had a nice 4 lber crush it.
Keep up the good work. Can't wait for these to go on sale.

Topwater using a tablespoon as a mold and then adding silicone skirt material:

or flapper tails:


Figured I may as well use spike tail mold and not remove spikes to form this creature lure:

Spikes added to grub body with Mend-It glue:



paddle tail worm worked first cast (note modifications):



A new mold worth the money:



Cone tail:

(one of my best designs)

Tried my hand at making stencils for the vertical lines and I'm not that crazy about them.

These jigs completely sold out at the Fun N Sun show in our Illustrious Action booth. The living rubber skirts with matching Flappy Craw trailer already attached was a huge hit with everyone. We have another 400+ in production that will be available soon. I personally can't wait to be drowning one on Palestine this weekend along with my Trap bait Matt custom painted.

That is the jig head we use from NuTech lures for our custom made jigs with the living rubber skirts at Illustrious Action lures.

I figured I would try some spinnerbait blades. They are drying not but I think they turned out well. I'll have to do up some heads now.

I did some bluegill heads and I realized I painted them upside down. It still worked out.



With living rubber.

Very nice work, Matt. I started with crappie jigs and then started bending wire and that got me into all other bass lures. I enjoyed making spinner baits and people who have never made them don't realize how many steps it takes to make a spinner bait that looks like yours. I realize it and I appreciate you taking the time to go the extra mile. Thank you for posting them.

Txmed speaks true...when making spinnerbaits there's a lot more to it than meets the eye. Nice touch on the blades & skirts.

Thank you for the kind words, and yes y'all are spot on about the steps it takes to build one. I painted both sides of the blades and will paint the heads to match. So basically it equates to three crankbaits painting wise. Then you have to put it all together and skirt it they will make some nice personal stock spinner baits because I'm sure no one will pay what they are worth in time.
