  1. That is something most don’t understand sponsorship does not mean free stuff. It’s a contract that both parties benefit from and if you cannot offer a service you don’t qualify to be sponsored To the OP I could easily contact friends in tackle companies but I would never do so without it being worth their effort. Sponsor me I have a YouTube channel is not going to cut it
  2. I assume you are a fisherman looking to be sponsored maybe tell people what you have to offer in exchange for sponsorship for starters
  3. My wife has one of these as well I may have to give it a try
  4. Alumilite and smooth on sell Silicone Mold material you can use to make a mold. Alumilite sells another material you can use to make injection moulds as well I have not tried them because I have not taken the leap into soft plastics yet. I have used the silicone mould for hard baits with good results though take a look into the two options and see if one works for you
  5. Welcome there is a no lack of different styles of hard bait makers and more here and a good amount of knowledge comes with it
  6. I decided this winter to start putting in effort to sell some of my hard baits but need to control my mayhem first. I have a problem of always trying to create something new or tweaking designs I have made so I have a bunch of proven designs. I pour my blanks and build my own lips so it’s not simply assembling like my wire baits and flies. Out side of basic hardware nothing is interchangeable. I am realizing I need to pick a set number of models and focus on them or things will be a mess So for those who sell custom hard baits as a side business what do you find is your magic number of hard bait models to keep things running smooth? I will likely keep 2-3 of my wire baits in the mix as well
  7. Cheap little bandsaw lots of options keep an eye out for used even. I do touch mine up on the belt sander as well
  8. Should be able to come up with something that will do the trick. I have been playing with the idea of a larger design so this just gives me an excuse to put the idea to work good luck on the water
  9. What size crankbaits do you normally run? troll or cast? colours? This might give me an excuse to tweak one of my designs names John by the way
  10. Definitely interested in a swap but might have to delay the timing for later in the fall because I will likely be moving from BC to Alberta come September. Once I get settled into my new place we will have to work something out As for colour I fish a lot of different waters between BC and Alberta so it varies. When I fish lake trout I also take note of what colours are actually seen according to the depths I am fishing White, Black, fluorescent green/yellow, different shades of green/yellow, blue, purple, silver, and a mix of colour for highlights. For the most part I can find somewhere a fish will eat any colour My memory sucks so if we have not sorted this out by October remind me
  11. Wayne you are more likely to be making baits similar to what I do and odds are mine could be applied as smaller musky lures. These crankbaits are 5.5 and 7.25 inches geared to lake trout and pike. With fairly wide lips coffin style and kind of heart shape lip are the two I am testing. They have two tow points so action and depth adjusts a little. One day I need to head east for musky definitely a bucket list fish Dave tow points and lip angle are part of what is being played with between these two designs No issue figuring out the adjustments needed to achieve my goal depth it’s accuracy and efficiency of my testing I wish to improve. Thanks again guys John
  12. I will keep that in mind and see if it applies to my crankbaits when I test them
  13. Thanks guys looks like there is no mythical easier way but hey a man can dream
