Wink  Going Big - LMB
Presenting the tag team duo...

Both bullet heads are weighing in at 1/4oz. - with a powerfull 4/0 Ultra Point black nickel right 'hook' - these bad boys will be swimming/ripping through some weedy holes at my local sweet spot this spring. Big Grin

Arkansas Buck/Rabbit Shad: Sporting a 2-tone magnum rabbit zonker tail with gray bucktail body and trimmed with pearl midge flash throughout. Just a pinch of red flash at the throat...

Shad n' Jig: Dressed with a 5" American Shad color TurboFlare Skirt, this competitor will most likely be bringing a Northern Bluegill 5" Kalins Grub as a trailer to the fight... or maybe an all black cut-off ribbon tail power bait as a back up. Happy swimming. Smile

The bullet heads came from Cadman. Cool I painted them with black and platinum nail polish, put some multi-color glitter polish to the top and red glitter to the gill area. Added some 3D eyes and coated the whole works with 5-min. epoxy when i added on the weed guards. The tied jig will be thrown carefully.... took me almost half an hour to tie!!!! Haha, fun time well spent. Look out big mouths!

AF,

Nice-looking jigs. Exceptional paint job. Your epoxy coat looks great! Did you add thinner to your 5-minute epoxy? Great work with the multi-color/glitter. Cool

I use 5-minute epoxy occasionally, but have to thin it with isopropyl alcohol in order to buy extra working time for multiple jigs.
