Default Plug #2

More playing with paint here, I blatantly stole this paint scheme from a plug I just bought a couple of weeks ago, I just like the way it looks, tho the original looks better

Sudsy,
I stole the paint scheme from a Basswood plug I bought at Seaside a couple of weeks ago, the Basswood is a little smaller, with a more normal lip, and it looks like, well, here, it looks like this, side by side with the kit plug:

Jacob. I would say, don't do it, save yourself, but like the crack addict that wants to turn on his friends, I would say to you, try it, you'll like it.....I have always had some hobby that required some creative aspect, cars, motorcycles, painting bikes when I was a kid, building models, and this satisfies 2 needs for me, the creative/artistic side, and the itch for fishing, which needs to be scratched. Somehow all the time I spend doing this stuff can be justified because I'm getting ready to go fishing, even if can't fish right now. Long, cold, sunless winters are a killer.

great looking plugs you got going there ed, from what i can see your on your way to becoming a plug master....hey baitrunner, building plugs is a great stress reliever in the off season, although if you do what i did at fisrt it causes more stress than its worth. just make sure you take your time with it and have fun. i made plenty of mistakes early on...way too gung ho at first. this year i have taken a new approach, and i am much better off. everyone here im sure will help you along the way if you decide to build.

if i had a choice in color it'd be brown over light brown/ darker head/pearly white belly with cut up shavings of polar bear fur glazed over belly and the single kill spot. i;m not the plug maker but know what i'd prefer in a plug and if anyone made it for me to those specs i would just shart my drawers!

Son,
Step away from the pipe....that's it, just set it down, and move away slowly.....
WTF are you talking about you crazy &^%$#@!? I gotta go snip a few polar bear belly hairs now? WTF!!! Like in Alaska, or is it OK if I just crawl inside the cage at the zoo?
Otherwise, sounds like a pretty well thought out color scheme
As far as the shart in yer drawers, I'm pretty sure you did that once or twice when I was up on the pier....

polar bear fur reflects polarized light better than any other material. in a world where light plays so much a part of a predators sense it can be seen for a long distance underwater and will even reflect polarized light onto rocks and structure and bounce off to get the fishes attention. have none left or i'd put it on myself. great stuff.

Kee-rist, now if I want to go fishing I gotta skin a polar bear?
That's interesting info, where the hell did you find that?
You been thinking like a fish again?

Takes one to know one there, buddy.......

Hey, I was fishing within sight of the skunk pier (home of the googinistic interlopers.....good word!) last evening, even though it was way, way over there across the water, I could see it. One short bass for me on clams, several missed hits, I gotta remember how to baitfish. Sure was nice to latch on to a slightly larger fish than I've been catching.
