Tied up a mess of these for Redfish down on the Texas coast. I think the sheepshead will like em too.





#4 B10S, Crab Shell from Sightcast Fishing, mono eyes, small dumbell eyes for weight, fine chenille for the claws, silicone sili legs, and little purple estasz, a little bunny hair for the mouth parts and a little more over the shell to suggest constant movement, marked up with black sharpie. Thinking about dipping the tips of the claws in a little purple fingernail polish to keep the black/purple contrast going.

Does purple work well for you on the coast? Never thought of trying it.

Saw some fiddlers down there the beginning of the month that looked somewhat similar; that fact combined with the fact that so many spin fisherman toss purple/red or Purple/chartreuse paddle tails got me to thinking. Also my experience has been that fish can see purple/black pretty good in stained waters and since I fish Baffin bay a bit, which seems to be perpetually muddy figured them to be a good idea.
