  1. Today
  2. I use to fish the dead ringer & big dead ringer all the time on hot summer nights. That big thumping tail will flat just that. Thumped.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Is it about the same diameter as an old monster? I'm looking for a mold that is similar to the big dead ringer. The dead ringer has a wider tail than the old monster. Great bait to throw in the grass. Only problem with the Zoom is one fish and it's done.
  5. owner hooks, magnet hook holders, chrome plated wings and two coats of alumilite. 10 inches long and built for the big ones. about as original as they come and i hope you like it.

    Nice work with the detail on the gills!
  7. There is already an eye loop on the wire ahead of the body. So I can't add a bead or anything like that. So I am going to try some heat shrink over the wire to add grip for the surgical tubing, then a length of surgical tubing over that, then tie the skirt material onto the surgical tubing. Sort of like how the old rubber spinnerbaits skirts were. Hopefully it works. We'll see

    Some really good info here guys thanks Andy.
  9. is a 3.6 action worm good for anything other than dropshoting
  10. For line ties in the nose, the closer it is to the lip surface, the harder and wider the action of the bait will be. Of course like Vodkaman says, there are multiple factors in designing how a bait will operate. Your lip angle is quite aggressive and the lip itself seems fairly long, both of which impart more action to the bait. Too much? Depends on testing and how buoyant the bait is, or in other words, how much and where you placed the ballast.
  11. I like the look of the line-tie in the tip of the nose. How much weight did you put in it? I make a similar crank with 1/4 oz sinker in about the same place you put yours, then a hook at the "point" of the belly. For a first test you could try a couple line tie points and see which one works best. I like to make at least 2 at a time, with only 1 variable different. When I made my first crankbait the variable was 1/8 or 1/4oz ballast, and 1/4 worked better. Nice looking crankbait though! It certainly seems like you're off to a good start with it. Are crankbaits popular over in
  12. I know it's a long shot, but does anybody know where you can get a replacement fan for the gear motor (I think it's a Dayton) we use on presto pots. Mine's in pretty bad shape and I'd like to replace it. I saw one somewhere a year or so ago when I was looking for something else but can't find it again. Thanks.
  13. Made of Cedar construction, stainless hardware, wood is sealed with a stainless coil for holding tails installed. Airbrushed, 3D eyes installed and 3 coats of E-Tex lite applied. Thank you for viewing, and have a awesome day!
  14. You can make about four or five wraps with thread add some uv glue and put a collar,or flare band on. Try Barlows Tackle, or Skirts Ulimited.
  15. Oh no doubt. I’d say the ol monster is the most popular big worm going & it’s as close as you get. I pretty much know my buddy’s are going to be wanting a bunch of mine when they see that I’ve been making them.
  16. I will try that, those look good.
