  1. Cardiff 200A Mod

    thats a great mod, i own a cardiff that i use for swimbaits and also for shallow water saltwater fishing. i may try this. it would be better reeling in a nice lingcod with the longer handle.
  2. Shimano Sahara spinning problems

    here is a great article on fixing that reel

    i always had an idea of the winners of the "best homemade hard baits" should have to supply a video of the bait actually working. so that nobody is using taxidermy molds and just painting them. The lure should have to actually work as it is intended for it to be the "best homemade bait" not just the best painted bait. and if its a flop then no prize collected........ Because there is more to the bait than just the paint job on it.
  4. Iwata HP-C+ parts

    on my hp-c+ i had a problem with the nozzle not sealing and causing no paint to flow through the gun. so i cut a thin strip of teflon tape and wrapped the tiny threads with it . could you possibly make a temp oring from some teflon tape rolled up and wrapped around the threads until you can locate the one that fits?

    wouldn't it be #28 Mark?
  6. Tiny Bubbles when airbrushing
  7. Tiny Bubbles when airbrushing

    a number of things can cause bubbles, to much air pressure, do you run a water trap in the line from your compressor? moisture under the paint, humidity. these are just the basic ones to start with. are you using a reducer with your paint?
  8. Need swimbait help.....again

    in the gallery under softbaits, is big panchos baits. he pours all my saltwater swimbaits and we use them with 10\0 beast hooks for calico bass. you can burn these baits and no roll. you can pm him and ask him some questions if need be. he is a real great guy and i am sure he would help answer any questions you have.
  9. Need swimbait help.....again

    yes please post a pic or a few of them from different angles like Landry suggested. or click on the gallery under soft baits and see if you see any baits that resemble yours and contact those members for info.

  12. Foil

    hey dale there is a member named Kasilofchrisn that posts in the wire bait section. he came up with a way of hot stamping his jigs. you should hit him up or do a search for his name and hot stamping
  13. 2 Part Bondo Molds

    actually you can use about any type petroleum product as a release agent. i have used wd-40, triflow, vaseline. they all work just make sure you get everything coated with whatever you use. i have made probably 15 different 2 piece bondo molds for saltwater jigs. i like the bondo glass (green colored) better than the standard pink (after mixed). Never had any of the molds warp on me and they save me a ton of cash on 3oz to 8oz lead jigs. the ocean is not forgiving on lures. I also use a couple of these type clamps on the mold when pouring lead Good luck.....
  14. Lure Drying RPM
