The crazy thing is that it is a carving, not a mold of a real fish.

I am working on one now. I can't help it. I can't see something like this and not be inspired.

12" and 14.24 oz of deadsticking deadliness!

I can carve a point in a pencil without slicing my fingers, sometimes. Kudos to those who have that kind of awesome talent!

How the hell did he paint it so realistic? I guess taxidermists do it all the time though. Hmmm. I'd kill for about a dozen soft-plastic ones that looked like that.

I don't know why more people on here are not tripping out over this. LOOK AT IT!!!

Matt is a trained taxidermist. He was a taxidermist by trade, and still does work on occasion I believe.

Those baits are for deadsticking, and have zero action. They float, that is it.

What application did you have in mind for them? I guess I could immagine slathering them with Pro Cure Trout Butter and letting them sit on the bottom...

Probably because they saw the picture and thought "oh, it's just another MRT"...not realizing that it was carved.

If you did that at Blue Mesa or the Gorge, the lake trout mafia might come after you...so might the lake trout! Do it in the Mississippi and you might just run afoul of a big blue or flathead cat!

I just want one (hundred) that I can drop over the side of the boat, line attached, and down to 100 feet, with a hook in its head. The fish will do the rest! Hard bait would be ok. Soft plastic would be the bomb.

So far, NONE of the soft plastic baits currently on the market, or that have been, are realistic enough or designed the right way.
