Working extra hard is a good ploy, you always find that someone will have a whinge.

Did you notice on my lip video, No10 was a similar shape to yours. I had seen the shape used around this forum and decided to see it for myself. As you stated, definately a tighter action, but did you see how it danced around in the underwater view. Definately be circling back to this one for further investigation. True, I used the lip shape out of context, as it is meant as a deep diving lip and not as I presented it.

@ Vodkaman

A very impressive video of yours , thanks a lot for sharing , ..........indeed that triangular bib provides a tighter wiggle , clear to be seen in your takes .

I guess , this is because there are planes "missing"(compared to a round or square bib) at the tip of the bib left and right of the center line .

Thus the oncoming water pressure does not have that much plane to engage to push the lure FURTHER sideward , ......so the wiggle remains quite a bit tighter .

I first came to read about triangular bibs in the book "Crankbait Secrets" by Joe Bucher , .........Joe wrote there , that these are of advantage fishing cover or within obstacles , .........it's kinda obvious to me , .........that pointed bib would often not "dig" into an obstacle but just let the lure slide along sideways .

cheers , Dieter howdy

those larvas are really funny looking, in a good way of course. would be really interesting to make something like that sometime im sure those type of lures would be something that pikes have never seen here, heck i bet you could get a zander with them too.

Very interesting lures those grubbs .you have inspired me once again. 8 or 9 years ago i hand carved a wattyl grub from a wattyl limb and made a lure with it . Happy with the results a made a mould from that lure and still have it . Not as large as your lures there diemai but more like the appropriate size of the real grub . I really forgot about that lure until now and in fact i cant even remember where the lure is . My grub was desighned to slowly twist and turn in the water on a slow retrieve at night . Did not really give it a good run but maybe i will in the future .
