  1. After reading about azek I stopped by lowes this morning and found a 16 foot piece for 1 buck cheapest thing I bought today.  I've read your post Why Pvc pretty much covers it all. Thank you Im along ways from finishing I'm just curious how the concrete sealer worked out for you. Will I get a smooth finish. Anyway thought I'd keep you posted.

    Belly weight and hanger

    Mark I really like the thought of using the 1/4 lead wire. What or where is a good source to find that. Then I could use the eye screws. Is it called lead wire? I bet it would be alot easier to make adjustments with. I want to make sure I have to bait adjusted correctly before I attempt finishing it. Thanks e1 very informative

    I kind of got away from building seems like something always comes up. Good winter project between building lures and doing some mods to the boat and trailer

    Sounds good tally so drill the hole large enough for the weight to slide down into the bait. The devcon does it ooze out

    That’s what I’m asking do you guys glue the lead in the body. Expoxy should hold you think

    Yes I have a drill press. I already drilled the hole for the weight. What keeps the weight from pulling out it you get a snag or fish
  8. Hey Woodie how do you secure the weights from pulling out either from a fish or a snag

    Ok sorry about beating this to death but I have 1 more question. I was starting to pour some more weights with the hook hanger in them and before I melted lead I wondered. So when I do pour these I'm curious what keeps the weight pulling out of the bait. Not sure about a fish but snags. Any ideas. The baits are for muskies.

    So do you mold your hangers in your lead? I was thinking of drilling into the lead for belly hanger. I’m down in Ohio where are you. I’m looking forward to the Muskie shows this winter. We have a great show in columbus

    Bagley monster shad

    That's exactly what we fish for down here also. I pretty much got the shape down besides the head shape so it's flat sided. I have a monster shad that split in half its made out of cedar. I went against the through wire though. The line tie wire goes about a 1/3 of the way into the blank where I bored a hole for the lead I poured the weight on to the end of the wire and I second the lip. I moved the weight just front of the belly hanger. How's that sound to you guys. I haven't sealed it yet to tank test though

    Thanks for the reply’s. So I found the tutorial on weight. I made a mold out of hardwood drilled 1/4 holes them poured. Now I can weigh each weight spec. I drilled the hole just in front where I’ll put the hanger. I’m going to fill the remainder off the drilled hole with epoxy. Those the expo you sand well? Thanks again

    I like to melt my lead then pour it into the drilled belly hole. Any pointer on how to put a hook hanger in after I've poured the weight? Drilling in the lead is what I'm thinking. Then fill the remainder with bondo.
