This is a style of dive & rise I started making last year. The smaller version I fished for pike with great results all season. After seeing how well the smaller version worked I decided to make a larger version with the same principles but varying it a little to dive slightly deeper

They have a very good action and can be worked different ways effectively. On a long steady pull they dive in an S pattern. Short twitch they dive slightly to either side. On the rise they shimmy for the first foot or so. On a straight retrieve they have a flicker like a lipless crank. I prefer to work them erratically with a mix of twitches, pulls, and pauses. But my wife even got good results trolling them

I know guys like an external weigh option on a dive & rise but with these you loose a portion of the action listed above if the weighting is off

The large version is an 8inch body the small version is a 6 1/2inch body. Tails are held on by a thread pin without glue. I have ones still on the original tail with close to 100 pike caught on them

90% of my fishing is with lures I make these days. It makes fishing more rewarding in my opinion. Always striving to improve and create new designs helps keep a guy’s sanity in the off season too

Do to my location I have only been able to personally test my baits on big pike but if all goes as planned I will be tossing them for musky in Ontario come July

If you have the skill and time you can build great stuff. And yes very satisfying.
