I designed this bait with the idea of a different profile in mind. The name comes from the wasp waisted profile I got when I started turning.
This is a through wire construction, meaning stainless steel wire runs completely through the bait forming the harness. Holes are drilled into the bottom to intersect the through hole and hangers are added for the hooks. The hangers are held in place by the through wire.
I prime and airbrush the pattern then clear with Envirotex. The buzz bait blade is added last. It looks like a pair of little feet paddling behind the lure.
The chipmunk and mouse are my favorites. The 6” size is a good all around size for bigger fish and the big one has a body that measures around 9 1/2-10” without the blade. The picture of the big one is before it was cleared.
