  1. Can I get these to work?

    Hi all, Bob, that's not Magnus' work, It's made by some other Swedish guy, looking at the paintjob. I have the two spinnerbaits up and running! I put in some more lead, adjusted the blades and wires, painted them and they work. Blades run perfect. The only thing I noticed is that the bodies sink a little with the tail down. With a small ball of lead on the wire I got rid of that as well. I can't wait to catch some pikies on them. I'm going to build another couple of these and try to build them (near to) perfect. In the meantime I also made a spinner-jerk. This bait is awesome. Besides the blades running very nice and smooth, the body also wiggles while retreiving. I lost a nice fish on it this morning. This bait casts well and to be honest I expect more catches on this one. Al the baits have homemade 3d eyes Grtz Paul Holland

    Been thinking about that too. However I guess it will be a problem to hook a fish without ruining wires and blades.

    Thank you all for the input so far. I guess I have some knowledge about how to make a good jerkbait but spinnerbaits are quite a new story to me. I learned more from your guys' posts then I did know I certainly wasn't going to give up on this project. Looking at your recommendations I'm going to turn the blades, put in some more weigth and trying to get this thing going. I also like the idea of attaching a lip to the body. Going to give that a shot as well. Like said, that will make some vibrations under water. I will keep you updated. Any additional input is always welcome. Once again, thanks so far. Grtz Paul Holland
  4. Can I get these to work?

    Wanting something else to build besides sofbaits and jerkbaits, I started working on some homebuild spinnerbaits. Wooden bodies about 3.5" thick, selfmade eyes, and wires and blades attached. One with skirt, one with 2 trebles. Now when I started testing these it turned out the bodies need lots of lead to keep them swimming the way they should. Still, even now when I put in a lot of lead they keep turning upside down. Are wooden bodies these sizes simply useless because of their bouyancy? Or is it something else I'm doing wrong? Is size and angle of the wires decisive for it's action? Any input appreciated. Note that in the pics the wires are uncut. Grtz Paul/ Holland

  11. Etex Problems.? Oily?

    Guys, I have said this before in other posts. There has been (or is) a production problem with etex. After applying and curing, the coat stays greasy (oily) and dull. When I contacted the shop I bought it, after ruining some baits, it occurred there had been many complaints about etex lately. All the same problems, greasy and dull. On the pic below you see what happens. Left good etex, right bad etex. I was told that the production company said there have been some issues concerning some production batches. If you have a "bad" package, the best you can do is mix the etex thouroughly and let it set for at least 5 minutes before applying. This way you have the best chances on a good result. I'm not here to disgrace etex, I have used it with great results. I'm just telling my experiences and what I know about this problem. Grtz Paul Holland.
  12. etex vs. D2T... the fight continues!

    There have been poduction problems lately with etex concerning your issue. The same problems occured with numerous customers in Holland. The coat gets dull, it feels greasy and softy. The only way to save your package is to mix well and let it set for at least 5 minutes and then start praying.....

  14. Solid resin JB's

    That is correct, the line tie together with the body shape and right weighting creates this type of action. As for the colour, simplicity can be great looking. Usually I paint schemes which take more time but now and then I love doing those straight forward colours. They work good for catching too. Grtz Paul
