  1. Weight in a crankbait

    My first batch of lures were some square bills. They are a cross between a KVD and Fat CB. Ran fantastic caught fish. I was going to be the next James Heddon. So I thought I was smart and modified the angle of the diving lip to get some extra depth. Lures ran terrible no way they would catch a fish. I went from glory to ghetto. I agree look a some lures you like and match the angles but don't stop thinking outside the box. Maybe......................................
  2. First Ever Muskie On Homemade Crankbait

    NICE JOB GREAT FISH!!!! That is a great area to fish looks like you had a good time.
  3. BEAT UP BAITS

    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
  4. BEAT UP BAITS

    I agree. Lures are made to catch fish
  5. BEAT UP BAITS

    You must not be after fish with teeth. Up north a bait with no marks is a virgin bait
  6. BEAT UP BAITS

    It might just be me but I think lures look the best when they are hanging out of some fishes mouth
  7. BEAT UP BAITS

    Going to Minnesota in 2 weeks. I will see if the pike like my lures
  8. BEAT UP BAITS

    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?
  9. Collared props

    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.

    This all made by hand? If so how difficult was that rotor?
  13. WOOD WORKIN' LARGEMOUTHS

    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.
  14. newlure design

    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.
  15. NORTHERN PIKE/ MUSKIE TROLLING LURE

    Thanks. Got a lake in mind for this lure in northern Minnesota
