  1. Hi Guys. I'm usually on the Hard Bait forum, but I got a request from a customer in Wyoming, if I knew anything about a soft plastic bait used for fishing Speckaled Trout and Redfish in the Gulf, by the name of Flury or Fury produced by Eagle Bait. My company name is EagleLures and this is why he thought I produced them. I said I would do some research for him and try to help if I could. Have any of you heard of this bait at all? If so, how do we contact the company for product? Any help would be greatly appreciated.... Thanx and Merry Christmas everyone. Oldthunder EagleLures.com

    Printed name on back of lure?? HELP!!

    Can someone help me here. There was a website posted awhile ago, from a college I think, that had an excellent selection of baitfish pictures on it that could be used for this purpose. Does anyone remember it? I did a search but cannot find it.... Oldthunder Life

    Restoring Old Believers

    How about glazing putty. It is an automotive body shop repair product. Very simple and easy to use. Not expensive either. Comes in many sized containers. Sandable and shapes nicely. It fills in shallow holes or indentations of 1/8". I use it alot to smooth both plastic and wood baits before sealing and painting. Have never had a problem with it when applied correctly.....

    Screw Eye Position

    I have noticed that the final positioning of screw eyes in wooden baits is not always the same. The conventional way of lining up your screw eyes was to position them "vertically" down the centre line of the bait. That is to say that you can look through the screw eye if you held the bait up to look at it. I think that 100% of commerical lure manufacturers position their eyes in this manner. Some guys have given their screw eyes an additional 1/2 twist, so the eye is now "horizontal" with the center line of the bait. My question is....is there any advantage to lure performance or hooking power with the eye positioned horizontally. I'm sure most of you guys would not be doing this if you hadn't experimented with it and found something advantageous. I'd like to hear from both sides of the screw eye issue. Oldthunder EagleLures.

    De-valued Lures

    I agree with Dean!!! These are some of the VERY best lures I've seen on this site. Now, of course, I'm partial to blue and have caught alot of trophy pike on this colour pattern..... If there are sour grapes among us who have something personal against a certain member, Heaven Forbid, then we all need to take a close look at ourselves. If you are only here for amusement and to play practical jokes on members who work hard at this craft, then I don't believe you are needed here..... Maybe try another site and leave this one to people who enjoy what they do and are proud enough of their efforts to show them in the gallery. Dean, thank you for pointing this out. I have posted my first comment in the gallery and rated Fatfingers lures as well. This is the BEST site out there for luremaking. Let's keep it that way..... Oldthunder EagleLures.
