  2. Wacky Worm Weight

    I saw there is at least one company offering a tungsten weight that sort of embeds into a senko style worm to add weight. I prefer it over a jig head style weight. These can easily be made with regular split shot, a drill and some light ss wire. I push it up through the bottom of the bait and then put my hook through the wire loop. Seems the original senko lasts a few fish longer. Here's how I configure.
  3. Skirts Under Control

    Have had issues with skirts on war eagles draping over head during retrieve. Probably doesn't matter to fish but I don't care for it. Fixed the issue with a wacky style o-ring.

  6. The Ripper Swimbait !!!!

    idk.....maybe shine would reflect light better and give a lil flash and on a swim-bait that isn't a bad thing....but glitter might off set duller finish.

  8. big lure holder?

    our body baits hang by wire on a rack. painting 6 of a color we can go over each lure .using fast dry paints when using templates there set on side on an easel type board ,squirt 1 side when all done flip and repeat..sounds strange but that's how its done here. ,spinner blades are racked on pins and sprayed 250 on a rack.
  9. Trigger Transplant

    My thoughts would be to remove the trigger off of a tpssd or tpsm and attatch it to the side/bottom of the current reel seat. 2-3 small screws (recessed) would probably be required. Either use epoxy or even a plastic welder to attach and reinforce with the screws. File/sand the edges for a smooth transition. Probably not too difficult but a little tedious though.

  11. Fusing plastic

    Didn't know that soft glues were sold. Good to know. This may take the place of my candle flame for fusing parts together to make hybrid designs. Thanks!

  16. Next tool

    I have truly enjoyed all the comments on my posts so far on this site. Lots of great help and information. I am just getting into the hand carving balsa baits world and I have a band saw. My questions is what would be your next purchase as far as tools go for building lures. What would help my process and make it easier.

  18. big lure holder?

    This holder is set up for 2 lures. The lure in the picture is a 6 inch popper. Swivel snap wired to the L bracket on the left. Eye bolt with rubber band and snap on the right. 1 inch by 3 inch scrap wood. You can also put an eye screw on the side of one the ends to hang it vertically for drying. I recommend setting it up for 2 lures at the most as would be hard to paint lures in the middle. If the lure is 8-12 inches I only put one lure on it at a time.

    No that's a totally different knot, a Trilene is a basic 2 turn clinch knot
  20. Best Lead Melt Flux?

    Ratio is not really important for jigheads...just try to keep zinc out as it can weld itself to aluminum molds and ruin them! I test all the wheelweights with an old pocket knife that's pretty sharp. if it cuts into the weight easily, its lead. if it resists I look close for an fe or FE stamp to identify it as steel, or a zn or ZN that designates the zinc. If you know anyone who casts bullets, thet can give you pointers here. The reloaders take lead alloys seriously and have elevated alloying and heat treating to a science for bullet casting. The cast bullet handbooks have a wealth of info on fluxing, alloying, and safety on lead casting

  25. Need Airbrush Paint Advice

    I use Createx and like them. I really like the pearls and iridescent, But...they require thinning, and different colors by different amounts. White and pearls the most. Createx white is thick and aweful to clean up. You will be using white a lot to base coat. This stuff is awesome and many use it.
