These are destined for Florida soon. These two are made with African mahogany and purpleheart.

Two more to complete the order. These have eight ounce heads and are made of bloodwood and American black walnut.

I love the walnut. Will these heavier plugs swim deeper, or is there enough wood to keep them shallow?

They should swim deeper and that’s why he had me make them. I had a nice set of teeth marks but no wahoo in the boat on a 7” model with a six ounce head. Next time...
