Nice jig there Jerry. It's huge. Maybe you could strip it and let the chrome come thru and try to paint it similar to a crippled herring with some blue or green. I wouldn't waste an eelskin on that but I would try an Uncle Josh pork rind in black as a trailer. That may not be meant for casting I'd say. Try it in a rip from your boat sometime, you'll just lose it in the ditch and that's a lot of weight to toss.
