  1. I tried real hard in Minnesota this year to get a "boogered" up lure to post, but all the pike we caught this year were delicate flowers who didn't know what chomping down was all about
  2. I agree. Lures are made to catch fish
  3. You must not be after fish with teeth. Up north a bait with no marks is a virgin bait
  4. It might just be me but I think lures look the best when they are hanging out of some fishes mouth
  5. Going to Minnesota in 2 weeks. I will see if the pike like my lures
  6. I see photos in the gallery of some real good looking baits. "Artwork" Baits are made to catch fish not set on display. How about some photos of home made baits that have had some serious fish attention. I'm talking Muskie, Pike maybe one of those Peacock Bass type gnawed upon. How about it?
  7. Not sure about the collared prop. Jann's Netcraft sells the prop and washers. Probably would get the same results. This is what I use on my prop baits.
  8. Great job
  9. Carved out of cedar #4 treble hooks run about 18" deep slight wobble
  10. This all made by hand? If so how difficult was that rotor?
  11. Great article in the June issue of In-Fisherman about wood fishing lures. Talks about the early handmade lures by James Heddon and the newer lures from guys like Phil Hunt owner of PH Custom Lures. Worth a read.
  12. Try it. I do the same thing and try different shapes. Sometimes good other times bad. But always a lot of fun Are you going to do those dots? If you don't already know use the head of a finish nail.
  13. Thanks. Got a lake in mind for this lure in northern Minnesota
  14. This would help a guy like me a lot.
  15. Found this old post. Did this idea die off? For me this would be great to get new ideas and learn. Make lures, will travel
