Hello all I am quite new to this! I would be grateful for any comments on my plan.
My intention is to create heavy/sinking twitch baits for Tarpon and Snook. The baits I am trying to mimic are Mirrolures and Bagley Mullets.
From what I have learned to so far, my plan is as follows.
1- Create a two piece mold using synthetic clay an d Alumilite high strength 2.
2- Create a through wire body with weight attached. I will use Brass Wire and the lure will consist of line slot, belly hook and tail hook.
3- Cast lue using RC-3 Black as this is the color I am looking for
4- Sand and coat with Alumi UV
Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Do I need to use Microballoons as it will be a sinking lure?
With the weight being attached on the through wire - would it be best for it to be added infront/behind or on both sides of the belly hook.
Many thanks any help would be greatly apprecaited
