RE: Bluegill
Putting the bottom bill doesn't work. I have tried it before and it just doesn't work because jigs are weighted so I am definitely sticking with my pattern that works. I have found that if the lure floats (like crank baits) they need a bill that makes them dive. And with jigs (weighted to sink) need a bill that makes it swim upward. So long story short I'm sticking with my best lip patterns and design.

(pic is blurry sorry)

Thanks jig man!... Yeah I've been getting better at painting my own 3-d eyes... I have an idea about taking wax paper and dabbing paint in the shape of the eye (letting it dry) then dabbing the pupil on (letting it dry) then dabbing a last thick dab of clear coat. I think with some practice I might be able to make my own 3d eyes with any detail you'd want that way and in bulk. Just an idea. Confused
