At least the torrential rains we've had locally the last 2 weeks let me get a few more baits done...
Another batch of paddle tails, 10" and 8" versions.

Hope your season is going well so far!

Have you thought about painting the soft tail.
Lureworks SBCoat works great.

Thanks guys!
ToddM - Yes, they do! I tried to describe the action in this stupidly long post (you can also see the original wood ones here) https://muskie.outdoorsfirst.com/board/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=12...

Landry - I have thought about painting the rubber tail but haven't tried it yet. They would certainly look better if I did. Thanks for the heads up on the Lureworks SBCoat I'll have to look at it- is that a water based paint and do you have to clear coat or coat with clear plastic afterward?

Supertroll - Unless me and every other rural Pennsylvanian missed a call to arms and the state was somehow secretly annexed to the EU, I am still from the USA...

It is the solvent based paint. Take necessary precautions.
It works great if u clean the plastic with isopropyl alcohol or laqquer thinner first
I use the SBCoat clear on top of the paint.
Holds up well and works great.
Your baits look amazing. Great job.
