Any help? Here's is what i had in mind...not set on the colors, colors are going to be bunker color. Also I used MS Paint, dont have fancy software to create the lure.
All you need to do is a wire and blade that you can clip on any big jig,like a 20oz ruby lip parachute and they are already making them.I know because I make them too...............woody

Happy New Year everyone! Sorry Ive been MIA the last week or so...Back to the saltwater spinner bait. Toadfrog, I'd really like for you to build me two. 1 in Bunker colors and the other in a more traditional white and chartreuse colors. Both with a size 8/0 hook and weighing in the 3oz range.. If you have pay pal I rather go that route because i really don't have anything that I can barter for that you listed. So whatever your price is let me know, I'd be happy to pay extra for you time and work, and shipping of course...so let me know your preferred method of payment. Thanks...Vito...Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Default Proto Type Spinner Bait: Toads creation

Just to keep everyone updated, yesterday I received Toads Saltwater Spinnerbait in the mail. I was like a little kid on Christmas Day! When I opened it...I was shocked! This thing is just what I had in mind. It looks right, it feels right...All I can say is WOW! To think that someone who I hardly know, went out of his way to build something like that is just amazing. It says a lot of Toads character and the kind of person he is. Thank you Toad! I can't wait to see more of your saltwater creations! Now, I made a comparison pic of the saltwater spinner, to your normal bass spinner, just so everyone gets an idea on how big this thing is. Now remember, this was made for big Stripers and needed to be able to take a Blue Fish hit or two...Take a look

AWH ! Shucks Your welcome . My Friends in Australia say those Shelton blades will call fish for miles . I'm pretty curious to see how much truth is in that .

I will absolutely be posting a follow up pic of any fish I catch with this...it's unfortunate that it will have to wait for the spring...Spring hurry and get here!

Spring gives me time to create ! I have already sculpted a head . Now to make the mold . My son is an a special effects artist in his own right . If he ever gets the time I want him to do a casting for me . To bad he took the syfy road instead of the tackle making . But then he makes more off one mask than I do for a bucket full of lures . I can understand . I like the syfy shows too.
