    Wake Bait Clones Question...

    Thanks for the response! Sorry to see no others, but I'm glad to hear you've had good experiences with that particular wakebait. Hope the ones I ordered turn out as good!

    Wake Bait Clones Question...

    Hi folks! I'm interested in painting a few wakebait bodies. There are two clone bodies that I am interested in particular. 1)Buzzjet Jr --Deppz Buzzjet clone, example link) 2) Megabass Anthrax Clone (example link) Any opinions on how these clones run in the water? I realize that they certainly won't run as nice as the originals, but could anyone provide any feedback on their performance? Thank you!

    baby bass nail polish

    So are these just coated with nail polish as a final finish, in place of epoxy? They look very good!

    Alabama Rig!

    Looks like it has turned into a huge amount of negative attention for the Alabama Rig. BassEast is covering the trademark and copyright controversy now : http://basseastblog.com/?p=3131

    Alabama Rig!

    Thanks for the responses. The Y'all might be interested in the general consensus on one of the other major fishing board, at Texas Fishing Forum: http://texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/7112020/gonew/1/DIY_Alabama_Rig_threats Sure doesn't look like they went about it the polite way.

    Alabama Rig!

    You mention some interesting points Rayburn guy. However, threatening small children on Youtube isn't the best way to increase your fan base. if anything, it may lead to a backlash against the Alabama rig makers. Take for example the following comments left on several fishing videos made by kids: youtu.be/JB60QKQlfBk "Hey Son, You need to remove my registered name from your video and title. The Alabama Rig name can't be used to advertise a knock-off or Fake. Consider this a friendly warning." and "This is to notify you that you have used The Alabama Rig in a illegal manner without wriiten permission. This name is a registered a Trademark name with the US Trademark Office. Your title stated home made Alabama rig which must be deleted. Consider this a friendly notice. Also when the Patent is granted you also are infringing on the patent with 3 wires. If you have any questions you may call us direct at 256-275-9383 or our attorneys, either or. Thank you.

    Alabama Rig!

    It looks like the "AlaBama Rig" people are mad about people posting "how to make alabama style rig" videos or related videos. They've been posting all over YouTube today, threatening video owners. Here's a few comments from them, pretty outlandish: "Did you know that using the Alabama Rig registered name is a copy write infringement? Using Alabama Rig or A-rig in any way to lead advertising to your utube video is illegal. I need youto remove your tags and any liture with Alabama Rig name in it. Consider thisa friendly warning. Tammy Poss" "The Alabama Rig and A-Rig name is a registered name with the US Trademark Office. You are illegally using it. Your design will infringe on our patent. You I believe have been notified." "You are still using our name illegally for financial gain. I don't see how you can be telling people God bless you. You are stealing from us as well as using our Name The Alabama Rig and A-Rig which is registered with the US Trademark office illegally. Consider this a friendly reminder next will not be so friendly." "This is to notify you that you have used The Alabama Rig in a illegal manner without wriiten permission. This name is a registered a Trademark name with the US Trademark Office. Your title stated home made Alabama rig which must be deleted. Consider this a friendly notice. Also when the Patent is granted you also are infringing on the patent with 3 wires. If you have any questions you may call us direct at 256-275-9383 or our attorneys, either or. Thank you. Tammy Poss" "Read the disclosure on our patent application I had it worded so the any (Head) made of any material which we have other application coming down stream with different heads. Also the wires are stated multiple meaning more than 1. I hope you understand our frustration, thats like Ford amking a new engine and you happen to be a mech forthem or just figure something out on your own but not your idea in the first place. then make a video for" As seen here:

    Thanks for the answers. I'll be sure to post reviews of their performance in the water once they arrive.

    Overseas Hardbait Blanks?

    Hello everyone, I am planning on painting some blank lures and I came across these blanks: http://wlure.com/product_info.php?products_id=176 They reminded me of the Megabass cranks and they were ridiculously cheap ($0.60, free ship), so I picked up a few. Sine they are from overseas, I think they'll take a long time to get here, but I couldn't resist. Has anyone fished these blanks before? If so, how did they work? Also, is this website a good website to purchase blanks from? I have not bought blank lures before and I am sort of new to this. I've tried my hand at hand-carving, it was fun but very time-consuming. Also, if there are better blank lure websites to try, please let me know! I would like to find some blank versions of the Megabass Anthrax, if at all possible.
