They look good! 

HEY JORDAN, THEY LOOK GOOD TO ME and should catch fish!!!!

Nice looking Jigs. What is the jig head called?

i only see 2 things wrong with them jordy; first is you made them instead of me; second  you got them instead of me!  out side of that they look great buddy!!

!!

Hope you have some stout line - the bass are gonna love those!

Go sack em' up Jordan!

I like em!

I think they look prettty good.  You might want to tie a few up and reverse the colors...ie, the white on the bottom.  Usually minnows have a lighter belly and a darker back.  And, it would be really interesting to see if it made any difference!

You are hooked it looks like it to me, enjoy it!

Thanks guys, the jighead is just a 1/64th oz collarless ballhead with 3d eyes epoxied on

Nice work Jordan......

I've done some interesting reading lately, from the old "Bassmasters Collection," ca. 1980
Back then, a lot of what we take for granted was still new. Much of the old lore, however, was intact and people were winning tournaments adapting it. The most interesting part though, is this: Bass and sunfish are such close kin, that what we learn about bass can be applied to sunfish.

One such tidbit relates to contrast. Specifically, the reversal of the traditional colors with the intent of attracting fish. Todays trends have been towards making a bait that mimics natural forage. The thinking here goes something like this - "The more real it looks, the better it will work."
The problem with this logic is that natural forage is "designed" by Nature to HIDE from predators. So, if we duplicate it, aren't we actually masking it from our quarry?

This begs the question, "What if we reverse things so as to make the bait STAND OUT more, and so be seen more readily?" When you look at many of the older, lurid schemes seen on vintage baits, this is exactly what is going on. It is hard to believe that they appealed to fish at all. But they caught fish!

I think you may be on to something with these....

Interesting stuff David. We never  learn enough when we think we do something else comes along and stimulates our mine.
