Make a bunch of umbrella rigs :-) Both of my kids and I made 22 rigs today.

Here is a toad I caught on Texoma with the 8 blade during our January club tournament during the first ten minutes. I threw it out let it settle to the bottom in about 10' of water, pulled it up off the bottom to get the blades turning and wham!!! She was sitting in about 15' of water, boat was sitting in about 30' on a point. 8.18 pounds





These are made from .040 stainless wire. They are much more durable than the flash mobs. The 4 blade is about the same size as the flash mob The 8 blade has 4 #3.5 willows added.


and here is an eagle I saw

and a toad of a striper

Nice looking baits. They look better than store bought

Thanks ya'll. No they are not that hard to make. Just time consuming. I have a list of all the parts I use if anybody needs them. I had to modify the mold a bit to accommodate the wires I use. A lead meltimg pot, some crimpers, wire forming tool to twist the wires. And a few pairs of different pliers.
