I’ve been shuffling this really wide 5/4 poplar board around for quite some time and finally figured i’d put it to use. This guy is about 16” high x 52” long. Most all of the relief i did with my dremel tool. My dog barked at it for 20 minutes when i brought it in the house…Lol

The shape is very good, looks nice. Course those kind are easy to catch, they float on top of the water.

Thanks for all the nice compliments on my fish.

jim1953, do a google search on giant lures. There is a website for guys that are making realistic AND HUGE lures.

That is a great carving! Thanks for the idea on this one. I saw a beautiful piece of mineral stained poplar at Home Depot the other day that is now calling my name. ;-)
