  2. C'mon man!!!!! LMAO!!!!! I've asked you for the colors you have used already. On a serious note though, I know the natures edge colors pretty well, they are one of my favorite series.

    Old warts back to new

    Beautiful as always.
  5. I saw a gentleman on youtube make a thing like an icing bag. Basically he cut the corner off a clear sandwich bag and used it to shoot epoxy into his lure holes. Just tossed it when he was done.
  6. First you have to understand what causes shimmy; a phenomenon called 'vortex shedding'. These are vortices that form around the falling object and alternate from one side to the other. Unfortunately, there is a minimum speed before the alternating vortices start. I can't give you any numbers, sorry. But, I can say that a wide, flat worm will start slower than a round worm. To demonstrate, drop a ball bearing or a metal rod into a bucket of water and it drops straight to the bottom. Repeat using a coin and you will see the difference. Dave
  7. I tried to accomplish different "shimmy" actions via different blends of plastisol but because of the configuration there isn't enough density of material to make a noticeable difference. Personally I take 10 penny nails and cut the head off and insert in the bait. Depending on where I can get to swim in a circle or fall backwards on a dead stick.

    Pumpkin Shad

    That puppy would be a killed for Bass in the St John`s river! To bad we`re not neighbors ….that way I could prove it.

  12. The type of rig seems to make a difference we have come to like the do-it ES 6" shad with a screw nose and external wire rig regular alumisol actually lasts pretty good 10 is fish or better, but it is pretty chewed up, but anything with an internal rigging can be done in one if you are unlucky.
  13. Probably depends on which type of bait. I’m doing pullbaits so they can be pretty firm. Swimbaits start to suck if u get them too stiff. At least that’s what I’ve noticed. I ordered lure raft hybrid between saltwater and regular, it was wayyyy to soft. Not even close to the hardness of the regular alumisol. I just called alimisol and got them to send me more in bulk, rather than burn money experimenting.
  14. A chinese Pie machine, Interesting.... Nothing like a zorn machine, except the advertised price.
  15. What is the action like with the super tough plastics, I do pike sized baits. would it work in smaller baits
  16. Heard back from one so far, it's not cheap but reasonable. it goes to show it pays to contact a real person sometimes.

  19. I would highly recommend people skip Do-It's Senko molds entirely after my experiences with them and I don't have to be asked in order to recommend Baitjunkys.com for stick molds.
  20. When you buy a new/replacement power tool, treat it like you have never ever used that type of tool before in your life! I bought a new circular saw. It ripped my fingernail off because the guard was positioned slightly differently. Dave
  21. heres 1 on stupid. was drilling a bait with 1/16th bit,in Dremel. drop the Dremel .went to catch it. bit went right thru my hand. as for stuoidity I got the Darwin award.
  22. I designed and built a hinged lip lure for longer casting. It was a really fiddly build on top of a lot of time consuming carving. The design worked and casting distance increased significantly. I decided to really test it out with a monster effort cast. The reel bail-arm flipped shut mid-cast. The lure flew about 150yds, it was a thing of beauty. Moral - Always tie a new knot. Dave
  23. They say we learn from our mistakes so I should be a genus before I die
  24. The plastic exudes oil when they cure. If you don’t remove it the paint won’t stick. With fresh made baits they haven’t had a chance to start yet so....
