  1. First, if you are going to run an ad for your company, contact the administrators and pay their advertising fees. Second, as a retired college professor, I take great offense at the paper writing service that you offer. Yes, I know that you’re going to say that you only “help” students write their papers and students are only supposed to use what you provide them as an assistance in writing their own paper. However, you know full well that students buy your papers and turn them in as their own work...an offense that, if discovered, will result in severe disciplinary action by the professor a
  2. No, I don’t modify for a wire keeper. But, I often use a wire weedguard instead of a fiber guard.
  3. I use the Bullet style mold for my swim jigs and it comes through the grass with no issues. I also mainly use the 1/4 size, occasionally a 3/8, and use the 1/2 only when the win is up or I'm fishing deep.
  4. If I am making a bait that I’m likely to lose a lot of, then fingernail polish is fine. If it’s a bait that I’m not likely to lose and will use overtime, then I powder paint.
  5. That's a pile of hooks!
  6. Have you tried using a twin wire weedguard on your finesse jig, rather than the fiber weedguard? I use these wire weedgaurds on many of my jigs and prefer them in many situations to fiber. https://www.lurepartsonline.com/Wire-Weedguard
  7. I use Sally Hansen fingernail polish to paint my blades. It may chip off after a while, but is easily reapplied.
  8. If the hooks are cold, the lead will harden quickly when it hits the hook. You might allow the hooks to sit in the warm mold for a minute before pouring. This may allow the lead to form around the hook more completely. As far as the hook being loose in the mold, you could take a little high temp red silicone and put a light coating where the hook lies. This will prevent it from moving around when you close the mold. As far as the buzz bait pulling to the left...if the bait only has one blade, the direction that the blades are bent will dictate whether the bait runs to the right o
  9. I believe that is how Eagle Claw designated their heavier hooks...same model number but with an "H" after it.
  10. If you have a jighead mold that incorporates a collar on the jighead, pour the jighead without a hook and then use gate cutters to cut off the collar portion to use in lieu of a nail weight.
  11. Eagle Claw used to make their regular 570 and also a heavy wire version of the same hook. They did this with several of their smaller hooks. You might be looking for the heavy wire version of the 570.
  12. Those look a lot like Tim Poe's spinnerbaits. Any idea what hook he used on his?
  13. When curing my jigs in the oven, I used bent out paperclips. One end goes into the hook eye and the other end hangs on the oven rack. This way, if I do get a drip, it runs toward the hook rather than toward the head. I put an old cookie sheet under the jigs so that no paint will drip inside the wife's oven!
  14. Here's what I use. https://barlowstackle.com/Wire-Weed-Guard-P3836/ Jann's has something similar https://www.jannsnetcraft.com/Search/wire weed guard.aspx You can also use stainless wire to form a loop that clips underneath the point of the hook.
