  1. Some Big "O" replicas that I made recently. Hand carved out of paulownia.

    Yep. My apologies I was reading about Coley just before then. Had him on the brain.
  2. Crankbait lips

    Nice try???? LOL ???? Fooling anyone???? I'm serious. He may sell you a few. I probably have 25 or so I would sell you.
  3. Crankbait lips

    Contact Joey at Blademaster Lures. He owns Suddeth and still makes the "Little Earl" Crankbait (which that is what your bait is isn't it?) He may sell you a few. I reworked his masters and molds not long ago and was at his shop the other day he has a load of Little Earl Lips. Regards, John Prior

  7. Wanted Belkely Saber Tail Worm

    Does anyone have any Berkley Sabertail worms you are willing to trade or sell? Color doesnt matter. Regards, Blades

    I have a Bagley Bango Lure that is a simple Pearl Belly and Lavender Back. It is a fish catching sumbuck! It looks like "Hammered Dog Sh?t" I have glued and repaired it several times and it just keeps catching em. Once I had a 20 pound strper eat it and I chased that fish all over the lake to get my lure back when normally I would have just tightened down the drag and broke him off. I can do an exact match on about any bait made and have painted several old Bango Lures to match this one and the old one still catches twice the fish. I have had customers send me lures for custom painting and I would usually call the customer once I received them to "re-cap" what we were going to do to them. Several times I would have a customer say to me for instance...... " that Pop R you have there that is so chewed up is one of the fish catching-est baits I have ever tied on". I would reply " well why in the world do you want to paint it then"? "lets just do the minor repair it need and keep on fishing it"! They would reply....... " thats a good idea"! Sooooo ...... Survey says.......... if its chewed up and battlescared and still catching fish, and still serviceable and not taking on water, FISH IT! Regards, Blades
  9. High temp rtv

    Why not try Bondo? I make all of my prototypes from Bondo which eventually wind up as a master then sent to Cast Industries for mastering baits for a vulcanized mold. I average getting several thousand spin cast baits from one mold. And Cast can spin me up a couple thousand pretty quick. Regards, Blades

  12. Scrounger Information

    The thicker material does work well. You have to wind the bait very slow or the bait foils. Guess it might work on a heavy head (3/4 oz) but not with a 1/2 oz. These fish on the Blue Back lakes wont eat it moving slow. Thanks for all the input. Regards, Blades
  13. Flexible Wire Spinnerbaits...anyone?

    This is a little bit off subject but remember those titanium oval split rings some years back? I saw a guy demo them ... he had a nozzle spraying liquid nitrogen on split ring and he could straighten it out while it was cold. Then as it warmed up the straightened out split ring would go back to its original form. Kind of gimmicki (sp)but pretty cool.
