new muskie painting

ARTWORK COPYRIGHT Charles Weiss 2012

The "shaman" colour of lure was brought to my attention from Dave of Bare Bones Baits. He was commenting on it's muskie catching appeal. I couldn't resist creating a painting of a muskie about to bite a mouthful of "Shaman" coloured crankbait. I think this is a ten inch long "jake" crankbait.
The scene I'm trying to create is an underwater weedline edge. The lure has been cast or trolled along this edge. A dramatic moment with a sudden burst of speed.The large muskie has bit the lure as it was racing by.

Caricature of "Larry Ramsell" Fishing "Historian"

ARTWORK COPYRIGHT Charles Weiss 2012
When the the viewers of this cartoon notice reaches 200,
 I'll print the cartoon of Larry Ramsel on  t-shirts for sale!
THIS guy Larry Ramsell claimed in the June 2011 Musky Hunter Magazine that the Canadian Record Muskie was a bit shorter by four inches.
THE OFFICIAL MEASUREMENT has stood since 1988. I wonder how he got the wrong size in his measuring compared to the recognized Official Measurement? My cartoon suggests the reason.

New FIRST MATE LURES logo carved from wood

This is a carving I completed last month and delivered to  the Toronto Sportsman Show.
First Mate Lures commissioned this carving as a three dimensional re-creation of their logo which is two dimensional.
This company manufactures fishing lures and accessories that are non-toxic.
They are based in the Ottawa area.
It was a challenge to make the carving as sturdy and durable as possible. They will have it on display at sportshows across central Canada.
Every detail was considered. My wife knitted the net.
It was a fun project.

The tail section is 8 in x 2in x 7in wide. This will be glued in position after it's been cut and shaped. I'LL ADD MORE STEPS IN MY NEXT ENTRY.
