    Lure 001 Nabs Its First Victim!

    What Tater Hog said... Except I've definitely made things that haven't caught fish, but at least the first part!

    Musky

    Take his advice and run while you can!! It took me 14 times to catch my first one and I always wanted to be back on the lake as soon as I left. Way too addictive, I think in part because the baits all look amazing. I wish I had walls full of them. If you go out for them good luck! Musky Glenn How do your tails hold up? Both of my musky to date have came on a shallow invader and its looking a little haggard already.

    Has Anyone Seen This From Zappu Yet?

    Is it legal to weight a treble like that? Im going to talk to my CO friend but I think that might be illegal in Michigan. Would be great if it worked though

    Single Hook Crank Report

    Im sorry if I missed this, but where and how did you have the single hook attached to the crank? Ive done it with a swedish pimple dropper single hook on the belly of smaller cranks for crappie with some success. I'm going to see if I can scrounge up some pictures or find one of those baits, its been a couple years Im sorry if I missed this, but where and how did you have the single hook attached to the crank?

    Lure 001 Nabs Its First Victim!

    Congrats man! My first fish catching homemade is saved and displayed, one of the few decorations I haven't lost in the past 4 years of moving constantly. Definitely retire it and make some more, well worth it.

    Purchase Devcon 2T Here!!!!!

    Shoot, I wondered why I couldn't find the stuff at my Wal-Mart anymore. Guess that teaches me for straying away from TU, oh well... Ice is fading and its time to get some lures done for the open water. Finally Mike

    top water swimbait started to sink!

    My guess is the hooks would make it sink that much. I'm sometimes surprised how much of a difference they make. Maybe somebody else can offer a better explanation though. What size hooks and split rings did you use?

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone

    Yes! Best Day of the Year! (This coming from a Jew-Christian hybrid, so you know I have a ton of holidays to celebrate) Hope everybody has a relaxing and enjoyable time! Thanks for all the knowledge Mike

    How to you make a swim bait

    I'll jump in on this even though I'm probably one of the few people on here who don't know how to make a swim bait. One thing that definitely will help you though is to use the search feature on the top of the page (you should see the tab). Try typing in words like swimbait, swimbait joints, segment size, weighting, etc. There is a ton of stuff on this site about it already and if you have any more specific questions there are always people who know how to help. Another useful tab on tap would be the How To tab, where you can find member submitted tutorials on several topics that might be helpful. Hope this helps, Mike

    Stamina has some, I believe its Welcome to Stamina™ Quality Components On-Line Store... Some people have had complaints about them, but I've always found their service excellent. Mike

    Lexan

    I get mine from Tower Hobbies, they have a website... All different kinds of thicknesses. If you order check that you don't want offers e-mailed to you though, because they will send a ton. Good luck, Mike

    painting

    Some people handpaint (brushes, toothpicks, Q-tips) their baits too, sometimes along with Rattle cans. I do personally, not beautiful, but they do catch fish. Look at Stone Coal Tackle's work in the gallery, he does some real nice hand painted stuff. Good luck, Mike
