    crankbait lips help

    I'm just about to add a lip to a new crankbait I carved.This is the first time I've done this,so I'm a little nervous.Any advice or tips would be much appreciated.Also does anybody know of a website that might have pictures on how to do this?Being new I like to have a visual guide to get started

    Quotes for Lure Makers

    there is nothing diffrent between you and a pro,a pro just knows how to cover up his mistakes-texasboy Gainesville,TX I found this to be VERY true when working on a house:)......oh I forgot something aroud here perfection is usually good enough:) If at first you don't succeed try try again...and when that doesn't work go to tackleunderground.com,which is what you should have done in the first place:)

    What Do You Fish For and Where?

    I fish for largemouth,and white bass,Most of my fishing is done on a small lake close to my home.When I say small I'm not talking about the fish.This lake holds tons of largemouth over 7lbs,it also holds a 28lb largemouth bass that they found after shocking the water:) which is why I'm not going to tell you what the name of the lake is.I might.......once I catch the big one:)good luck

    Bobp,don't worry I didn't think you were trying to steer me away from anything:) what I posted last night was just to state what my problems were with ceder.I followed your advice and went to Jenns Netcraft and bought a few balsa bodys,thanks

    thanks man but the problem was not that the ceder was too soft.ceder is a wood that ,a:has a lot of hard knots,and b:when you try and put the hardware in will spliter very easily.Thanks though,will try Jann's Netcraft.Does he have a website
