When I first bought my lathe in 2008, the first thing I did was drive down to Cape Cod Tackle to load up on every supply and lure part I could get my hands on.
While browsing the overwhelming variety of metal lips, one stuck out to me in particular - the surfster lip. It's heavy lip and distinctive cup convinced me to add it to my bag of goodies.
When I got home, I decided that I would use the surfster lip to build my first ever saltwater lure. Even though the plug has a very traditional shape, I was excited to see the results of making modifications to this time-tested design.
