The hard bait ready yet? I want to try. If needed I will go electric shock some pigs and put the bait in fishes mouth for authenticity.

Good looking baits. BTW, I know no one likes pedantic jerks, but shouldn't it be "carpe truttam":
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/trutta

I know, who cares?

Well, IDK Latin either, but at least YOU had the benefit of a good education.

Maybe it should be carpe truttam, there is some other tool that pinched the name.

DBM, I am working on a couple bugs with the baits. After I get them worked out I will get ahold of you. Basically I am modifying the tail slightly, shrinking the fins slightly, and thickening the front half of the bait a touch. I am also adding a hook slot. The first modifications will enable better pours, more durability, and a wee bit more "thump" from the tail, though I am keeping this a finesse swimbait. The hook slot will increase hook-up ratios.

The first bait I molded was really good on the hook-up ratio, almost every fish that bit got landed. It also had a hook slot. This one is the second generation. It swims and gets bit better, but unfortunately the hook-up ratio is diminished. The bait is called the "Stilleto" by the way. I intend to be able to make the final product within a few weeks at most.

Bummer . I swear, it wasn’t me. Based on what little I know about Latin, it should be “truttam” for the accusative case. As a reference, check the inflection for dies/diem:
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dies
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/trutta
It’s the same difference between “he” (nominative) and “him” (accusative) in English.

BTW, trout have a special place in the Indo-European lexicon (the family of languages that includes most European languages, Persian in the Middle East and Hindi in Asia). The root for the word “fish” in Proto-Indo-European means “paint or mark.” It is believed to refer to trout as the prototypical fish due to the markings on the trout, i.e. the ubiquitous trout in Eurasia came to mean “fish” in general. The root for the word salmon can also be traced back to Proto-Indo-European. Therefore, linguists have argued that the homeland of the Proto-Indo-Europeans must be in an area with trout/salmon. However, due to the semantic shifts that likely occurred during the Indo-European diaspora, linguists are not sure whether “trout/salmon” refers to the Atlantic salmon (salmo salar) or the brown trout (salmo trutta). Based on the first interpretation, the homeland may have been near the Baltic Sea (for salmon). The second interpretation would place the homeland near the Black Sea. So, there you go, if you didn’t already know, “carpe trutta” is the perfect address for discussion about fish (not just trout) related topics because the trout is the prototypical fish in Indo-European languages.

AOFisher, the smartest guy in the room. I knew a little of that. You make a convincing case for sticking with the moniker, I wondered if my content had drifted far afield of what might be expected based on the name.

I had considered the historical significance of trout and salmon as they relate to technology and art, but not the influence they had on linguistics. Fascinating!

You really are something man.

Cheers!
