as said many times, I really like the Mann's 1-minus and they have a crazy craw pattern that has done well for pike. Not only for me but if you watch Fishful Thinker episode on pike at Williams Fork you'll see he almost loses a rod with that lure tied on.

Well I couldn't find a similar pattern in a jerk bait so BassAckwards did some painting for me and even threw in a Mann 1-minus blank and they came out AMAZING!!!! In the tackle box (3rd row) you'll see the craw pattern I'm talking about.. and of course the other pic has the ones painted by BassAckwards!!

Absolutely cannot wait for some open water to give these a go!

The fulfillment of doing it yourself is second to none when you set the hook. I've painted and made plenty of my own without much luck. But the few that do work, I still get a special feeling and smile when tying one on.

Looking good Jim, looks like BassAkwards has that painting down to a true art.

thanks guys! BassAckwards did a great job! And like I said, I'm excited to try them. Panfishin.. those blanks are ITO Vision 110 blanks and I did very well with the 110 series this past year.

If you guys have an interest for Mitch to paint some lures for you his email addy is

YD - you think they'll work on shallow lakers? I didn't realize they would target loud colors. I was thinking browns for sure!

PikeN - I'm lucky, I know a couple people that paint. I DO NOT possess that sort of talent

AW - in the lake I fish I think they would work great on shallow lakers and browns.
