Playing with some Muskie Lures for awhile..

Living in northern Wisconsin, we have various lores, various characteristics to our local culture, one that is popular is muskie fishing...intimidating voracious predators of our fresh waters...and in experimenting with painterliness...the essential, thought it would be fun as a subject to play with..

This one is called the "Creeper" and makes all sorts of fush, gurgles and sounds as a top water lure.

Just getting this one going tonight following my day of teaching...a bit more to play, color to push, values and accent pops...

8"x 10"  oil...

Looks like a fishy like froggy cucumber with wings to me. Strange lure!

Thanks Rene...and a Merry Christmas to you, your girlfriend, family...be well and blessed...

It is a strange looking lure, but muskies here grow to about 55 inches and have a mouth full of intimidating teeth! They attack a thing most voraciously. Something that is presented right, makes noice...has that certain look or color. It is the stuff fisherman spend big money on to assure something in their tackle box is going to work on any given day!!! hahaa
