    Help with Balsa and through wiring

    Gator, I have a few baits I made the same way out of balsa, with the slot for the thru-wire. I epoxied the wire in and never had any issues with it. I still use basswood instead because it's a pain to weight the balsa....

    Walmart quit selling D2T?

    Hey bob. They are both made by the same company so the products should be very similar. The issue with WalMart not selling it isn't that it's not available, it's not available for the prices that Walmart was charging. Essentially it went from $2 for 25 mL to $4.95 at the local harware store. Luckily HF carries it for $2.50 and they are much easier to work with than the WalMart staff They will even check their quantities for you over the phone.

    Which clear coat to save work?

    you can use a krylon clear over it, heat set it, paint over top, and if you don't like the top paint, hit it with windex and watch it come right off.

    Work in progress: 'Twisterjerks'

    I think it has to do with the fact that you can relate any bait to another within a 10% range...all of those baits look like squirrely phantoms which look like muskietreats, which look like...and this roundabout continues. How about the WTD topwaters?? Just a way of life when you're all trying to mimic the prey of a fish with the same materials.
