  1. I use nylon rod wrapping thread. May not lay as flat as a flat thread but doesn't break while tying. For looks I try to keep my length of wrap shorter. Don't like a long wrap.
  2. I tie all my musky jigs, bucktails and spinner baits with finger nail polish to seal the nylon thread that I use for tying. Never have a problem. Nail polish seems to out last the Lumaflex skirts I use.
  3. Chuck those are some great looking baits. Good use of Maribou on last crank bait, don't know how that will look in the water but nice in photo. I really had to look for something to complain about and it is more about spinner baits in general than it is about yours. You see it in commercials all the time. The spinner bait is coming through the water, the blade arm and line are in a straight line and the hook is hanging straight down out of the skirt. I don't know if a bass cares but that always bothered me. To get a spinner bait to run straight through the water you need to bend the arm to the head so the head is more parallel with the blade arm. It closes up some space between head and blade but really doesn't hamper hooking. I always thought a spinner bait should be shaped more like a buzz bait. All the spinner baits I tie for myself are the same way and I just bend the wire where it comes out of the head. Yours look like very nice spinner baits.
  4. All good answers and I understand grain runs front to back, but it should also run horizontally instead of vertically. The screw eyes should go in through multiple layers of grain rather than running between two layers of grain. Works easy for bottom hooks, but front and back not so much so try to angle front and back screw (up or down) so it goes through more than one layer of wood grain. A screw going in following the wood grain tends to push those two wood grains apart. Belly hook going through multi layers tends to hold wood grain layers together. A good idea on front and back screws is to drill larger hole and fill with epoxy so screws don't have a wedge effect.
  5. Inconclusive, no muskies were used in the testing! Just kidding, nice comparison.
  6. We all do what we have to do, but there is also the point of missing some of the fun of fishing by trying to stay comfortable in a "wiggly" boat. Be safe

  8. is your friend. Great how to's and all materials needed.
  9. Don't know if this will help you, but I am using the Do-it Sea Horse lure mold PHC -3-L which is the 3/4 to 1.5 oz size for Stripers. This is the best pouring mold that I use. It always pours complete. Only problem is making sure the swivel is in correct place. Good luck.
  10. Easiest way is to make the two slides smaller, by the amount the blade likes cutting the exact slot size. This way you never have to adjust anything, you just move the jig to the opposite side of the slot and run again. Just my $.02. Good luck.
  11. Spine is caused by the layering effect of how they make rods. Usually there is a thicker side to a rod blank and this causes the spine. Another way to find spine is to lay the large end on the edge of a table with the tip end sticking off the table. Rotate the rod slowly and see if it raises or lowers the tip as you roll the big end across the table slowly. If there is no difference that is unusual and is easier to build as you can turn it which ever way you wish.
  12. MonteSS, sometimes the obvious is not out of the question, try #8 trebles. We troll live minnows on three way swivels with the minnow on a # fourteen treble and they don't have any trouble with the smallmouths. Just an idea.
  13. Maybe we need a different way to hold the hook instead of friction on the side of the hook. How about some kind of finger that pulls the hook tight in to a grooved slot of some kind. $.02 again.
