  1. Jerkbait Project - Downunder part 1

    G'day guys, Here's part one of my jerkbait making project. This one is going overseas to Australia. Enjoy!
  2. Foiling A Big Stickbait

    Thanks mate!
  3. Custom Paint Job On GT Popper

    Hand crafted lures are getting more and more attention nowadays. People are willing to spend the big bucks! Just look at Roman Made, Moutoukenmaru and Ginei Custom lures. They all cost a small fortune but they're always sold out within an hour of hitting the shelves. One more high-end hand crafted lure brand to be added to that list soon!
  4. Foiling A Big Stickbait

    G'day guys, I finished up my foiling job on a big GT stickbait for a friend of mine. I filmed everything and explained everything in detail and even managed to get a pool test in there as well. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
  5. Custom Paint Job On GT Popper

    Thanks! I agree, I make them for a fella who sells them to private collectors. He will however go public soon because the public has caught a whiff and it seems to be catching on. Too expensive for me but I get to keep a couple of unpainted bodies.
  6. Custom Paint Job On GT Popper

    Here's one of the custom paint jobs I've done on one of the popper bodies I received. They're not available to the public yet, perhaps in the near future.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11phQVcdoo8
  7. Testing & Custom Painting GT Popper

    I was asked to do some custom work on a GT popper blank by my good friend from Japan, he is starting up his own GT lure brand. Here's a video of me testing and painting the popper. Enjoy!
  8. New Swimbait Making Project

    All the detail is carved in with an X-acto knife, the dremel is a bit too bulky to get good detail in unless you have some sort of a sharp engraving bit in there.
  9. Bent Stickbait Project

    G'day guys, I just finished up my bent stickbait experiment. I had never made one but was keen to try it out. It swims quite well so I'm very pleased. Here are the two videos covering the project.
  10. New Swimbait Making Project

    G'day Guys, I just finally finished up my swimbait project. I filmed every step as per usual so I figured this would be the best place to share it. A fair bit of time went into it but I'm very happy with the result. Hope you guys enjoy!
  11. Carving Custom Whopper Plopper

    Hi Guys,I just finished a new project of mine. I've been working on my own custom built Whopper Plopper and I'm very happy with the result. I did record the building process so I figured I'd share the video with y'all. Hope you guys enjoy!
  12. Foiling Hardbaits

    Hi David, awesome looking lures! The wood that I used is called Paulownia wood. It's very hard to come by. I don't think the type of wood was an issue here, but I have some leftover scraps from when I was making stickbaits. Pauwlonia is slightly denser than balsa, but much stronger and easier to work with. I've just started a new topic. The crankbait in the video has already been retired as it caught a nice muskie on the first time of using it! It was my first muskie ever and it was caught from the shore as well. A capture to never forget. Keep up the good work!
  13. First Ever Muskie On Homemade Crankbait

    I made a topic before about making my own crankbait for bass. Well I recently went onto a trip to Minnesota. I got the opportunity to target muskie (from shore unfortunately) for the first time. On the first evening I managed to catch a beautiful Muskie on the crankbait that I had made in a previous video. The trip was made then and there! I'm still very excited about the capture. Here is the video that detail the muskie capture and beneath the video about making the crankbait in question.
  14. Foiling Hardbaits

    Thanks for the tip Dale, will definitely keep an eye out for it!
  15. Foiling Hardbaits

    Hi Guys, I recently tried my hands on making a crankbait with foil scales on it, I'm extremely happy with the result. Let me know what you think. I'd love to know if anyone else uses silver foil/tape as well and what technique they use.
