    Is This For Real??

    Hell Mark the Tuna's in the hard water season. I would try it if I were in Cali. Hey, you ever run into the Tactical Bassin' guys? Maybe that avatar fish hit a Hud '68?

    Anyone tried this? Thought maybe it's a hack with little value.

    Old Crappie Killer Jig

    This is such a "duh" on my part. Dove into my seldom used jig archive and found these. Looks like my killer is a Slo-Poke w/dressing.

    While I was searching for hooks I came across these. Look very interesting. Suppose you can weight them as you wish.

    Nice recipe Rob. I will be sure to try. I like the use of the common items to customize creations. I see some guys incorporate mono. I use #20 mono to make an extra barb on a long shank jig head for trailers and also to make my own pitchin hook keepers. I also like using shrink tubing (3m adhesive 4:1 shrink tubing) as mentioned above by smalljaw. The hook spec. saves me the trial and error (expense) too! Thanks.

    Like your avatar. Like the bug-eye design! I have basic tying tools and vise. I used to tie my own 1/16 dart heads with flashibou. Looks like some type of barbell for weight, I do have some tungsten beads that I could try and what type of hair? I have some Hareline extra select craft fur coming. I would probably add a couple strands of flashibou to the mix. What hook is that? A #2 or #4? Thanks.

    Used to buy these at a dime store. Usually used white ones, guess that explains why I still have this one. Kind of looks like a midge. I may try tying some using lead wire for the body. That is unless someone knows where they can be purchased.

  10. Can't believe this thread has survived this long. I always weigh, add a bit of 91% Iso Alc. to achieve a thinner coat, stretch working time and have the ability to coat more baits. Have not had one fail to cure out in 35 batches, about 340 baits coated. Mix how you choose I guess.

    Cavitron Blades

    Is there a source for cavitron buzz blades? Mold for heads? Figured there are knock-offs available. They are crazy good buzz baits once you remove the stock skirts and replace with fine rubber skirts. You have to watch the weight tho.
  12. Here's the one I use. Have two. Measured three different items on both scales. Matched. https://www.ebay.com/itm/0-1Gram-Precision-Jewelry-Kitchen-Herb-Electronic-Digital-Pocket-Scale-2000g/371961704005?epid=500505603&hash=item569aa52e45:g:U2sAAOSwQ7hazUnJ
  13. You did $.02, so I'll up it a penny. Have any of you mixed your epoxy, then dumped it on aluminum foil? I know it removes bubbles from FlexCoat (rod building).

    Presenting Crankbaits

    Easels 4' each. At a show they would be tilted inward in front of a 6' table. No issues.

    Here's what I decide to use for displaying baits.
