  1. Ned rig mold

    You're killing the baits action by using a hook that large.
  2. Hard Lead

    I like the harder metals for spinnerbaits.
  3. swimmin spy jigs

    I may have to break out my "spy" spinnerbaits with black and yellow vinyl skirts. Been hanging in the garage for about 40 years.

    Wouldn't just the wood density vary more than .010? You can keep the paint and sealer coat within .010? All the hardware used doesn't vary more than .010, when aggregated?
  5. Midwest Finesse jig mold first concern

    Why do you want a flat eye on the ned rig?
  6. Do-It Midwest Finesse Jig Mold with Wire Keeper

    All my custom spin molded ned heads use a #2 Lil Nasty, anything bigger kills the action IMHO. I also have no head heavier than 3/32, above that I go to a shakey head.
  7. What Are You Looking For In A Shakey Head

    I use a 5/0 and like the 1/16 ounce best, however I also use both traditional ball heads. The original ball heads have a different fall if rigged correctly, that works well for suspended fish.
  8. Federal Sportfishing Excise Tax

    This is actually on of the few taxes I don't mind paying, most comes back to sportsmen.
  9. Looking For Missouri Craw Skirt

    Thinks it more where it became popular, than the actual crawfish color.
  10. Ec L098Bp For Swinging Football

    I've lost enough fish using "cutting point" hooks I'll never have another in the boat.
  11. What Are The Best Split Ring Pliers?

    I like the Zurons for oval rings and Texas Tackle for round
  12. Best Glue For Weed Guards?

    Loctite gel is what I've been using.
  13. Createx Paint

    Check Amazon, sometime you can get good deals.
  14. How To Clean Eyelets?

    I use an old spinnerbait head with a very heavy hook, it'll pop the pro-tec right off before you heat cure them.
  15. Zoom Tomato

    Went fishless one night on Table Rock, fishing all the normal night time colors. Meanwhile my buddy on the back deck has a limit up to five pounds on Tomatoe Salt Craws. He only had six, finally he gave me one, second cast got my line broke.
