I like it, except for the fact that you came out the side of the shad. I would probably snip a notch so that I could come out *** straight with the wire. You could see the crimp in the shad body when completed (looks like an action plastics 9" shad, YUMMY). Wire leader/northern pike it is probably being fished pretty quick eliminating any negative effects of the eccentricity? How does she swim slow??
I am just being too nitpicky though, cool stuff and thanks for sharing..
Here is a way to adjust the swim on these baits by adding just enough belly weight to make them work right. I will also post this on general discussion thread. Thanks for asking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtjAdhBq7BU
