balsa walker construct

Rattling basla topwater, 4 3/4in. 3/8 dia brass sleeves and end caps shown here. Poplar dowels for screws eye construction. Super glue sealer. Epoxy filler over end caps.

I use either 5 or 20 minute epoxy. I fish for seat trout, largemouth,reds and stripers, so the screw eyes have never been an issue. Using the screw eyes makes a lighter overall lure, with the freedom to install rattle chambers or any other crazy idea I have about ballast.

I learned about the dowels rite here. Same with the super glue sealer (Love that tip!).

Thanks for info , ......I don't work much with balsa ! If I want buoyancy , I'd go for PVC hardfoam and thru-wired eyes .


Nice lure undeed , ...cheers, diemai
