If the most realistic is what your after

Isnt that really the goal for anyone? Nobody tries to make a frog bait look like a duck.  ;D

  I'm with fishing a duck too. Maybe it's me but taking a computer image is not what I'm into doing on this forum. I'm into making baits the old fashion way. Lots or trial and era and hard work. I'm just all in on a custom made bait that I can catch a fish on. Using a computer image to me takes out the custom part. Just my opinion.

I have been making custom baits for 32 years... I like to change it up and making something more real looking once in a while.  Don't knock me for that. I have 32 years under my belt. 

I'm still waiting for a more real looking lure that someone made...  :-*

Being brand new to painting my own baits...I think both have their place and I appreciate the skill and knowledge it takes to do both!

I'm taking on learning how to airbrush now...but I'm sure I'll give a try to the computer printed types we've seen here.

It's all amazing to me!

This is why I love this forum. Such an overwhelmingly large amount of talent here but yet the great people on here make it inspiring, not intimidating. This post makes me want to get into hard baits which is something I never thought I would have the confidence to try.

Never underestimate the determination of a fisherman.

Totally yet respectfully disagree 110% if one bass eats a blue gill out of a school of gill. Let's say 10 or 15 gills in the bunch why would he eat yours if it is a 100% match? The odds are not in your favor.
  Yet if yours is 75% realistic with something that catches the bass's eye he will target your bait Out of the 10 or 15 that look alike. It's basic prey vs predator instinct. To each the own that's what makes the world go round.
