Coastal- That fly is really cool- love that. I keep going back and looking at it again. How long does it take you to tie one?
As far as the shrimp mold (for plastisol) goes, if it looks authentic- like a real shrimp, that would be fantastic. -I agree with BKJ there. Every person who pours baits on the gulf coast will probably buy some. As far as being able to pour the lure with the jig inserted, I agree with mrex there. That would be ideal.
However, if the bait looks authentic......just as we do with color, depending on what plastisol and what additives we use, any one of us can make the bait buoyant, make it sink to the bottom, or make it neutrally buoyant. Just like real shrimp, sometimes they pop up top, sometimes they down low, and many times they are "hovering" (looking neutrally buoyant) THAT will be key, where the action itself is so key on so many other
types of baits.
Jason, then Do-It have made some incredible baits over the years. As so many are too, I look forward to seeing the shrimp. I hope it isn;t going to be offered only in a single cavity. Hint hint.
