    I carved this out of cast-able urethane, aka "Polywood".
    It swam pretty wicked as a one piece lure, but most lipless vibes (TD Vibe, Rattle Trap) are one piece, so I decided to cut it to make it saunter.

    The concept of this lure is a lipless jointed "vibration" lure, that swaggas (no misspell). I used a slow sinking Polywood formula, so no additional weight is needed.

    I "opened up" the joints, to give it that fresh "chunk" look.
    Remember, if you want to catch a lunker, you got to be a chunker. I wanted the abalone inlay look, without have to inlay the real shell, so I developed what I call "faux-balone". It looks better that it does in these pics.

    I wanted a "Mean" look, so I used split eyes.

    I have not thought of a tail for Diego yet; I jut stuck this one on for the swim test.
    I am off to the Island of Shikoku. I plan to introduce Diego to some Japanese Seabass.

    Wow G, that thing looks trick. That is a cool bait. Kinda reminds me of the Mako shark on Finding Nemo with that wierd eye. Let us know how it swims and if its getting bit for you.

    "Diego" sucked ass.
    Actually the lure got a few looks from largemouth bass in the clear rivers of Shikoku, but no bites. It swims the same, jointed or not (like a Rattle trap), so it need some more work. I though (incorrectly) that jointing the lure would make it wobble from side to side more. I am sure it would catch a fish, but that is not good enough for me. Evil E suggested a double screw eye, in the single joint.
    I will mess with it, and post up if I re-invent the light bulb.
