  1. Lure eyes for swimbaits

    I recently have been trying my hand at shooting swimbaits. So far, its going okay. I noticed my mold allows for eyes to be placed on the soft plastic after it has dried and this is not something I've ever messed with as a fisherman in general. What are some of your thoughts on using lure eyes for swimbaits/flukes/creatures? Is there a 'best practice'? Does it really help? How durable will they be? Do you prefer adhesive or glue? Do you clear coat your bait once you've finished? Any other thoughts in general in this arena? Regards, Bronzeback Cowboy
  2. SBY CC Large Striper Jig

    These are fun divers that glide through the water on some call duck feather from our farm in central Oklahoma.
  3. Hey guys, Last weekend I was going through some of my trolling spinners. My buddy has asked me why I had so many of these "harnesses" as he called them. I told him what they are then showed him how to make them. After getting a bunch more questions he asked me to create a basic video to use. I've been building variations of these spinners, strip-ons, and live bait harnesses for years. They work wonders covering lots of water to find active fish. Last summer I had caught walleye, perch, pike, musky, bullheads, different panfish species. I want to see what you guys think about it. Thanks for your time, Scott

  7. QD275. It skips! IT SCORES!!!

    I took off after work yesterday with a couple boxes of baits made from the original QD275 prototype mold. My first cast was up in the brush and never hit the water, but my first cast that hit the water got bit and boated a keeper. A few minutes later I stuck this 5+ pounder. The bait works. Got a dozen on it give or take. First time on the water and the bait worked great. P.S. I was using a ML XF spinning rod with 20lb braid. She put a hurt on that rod, but the line handled her just fine. Was a lot of fun on an ML rod.

  19. Airbrush

    Lately ive been looking into some airbrushes, ive looked at the 100 dollar kits that come with compressors, paint, hose, etc but most of them have very unpleasant reviews, ranging from the product doesnt even work, to the product is not detailed enough, does anyone have any recommendations on a reletively cheap brush and compressor?

    Different colour variation, no clear coat yet.
  23. The Reaper!

    The picture does this bait no justice. It has Sparkling Blue Sky base paint with a transparent Purple top coat. Its killer in the sun and I'll ad flake to the clear coat.

  24. I made this bait, and it was intended for bass, but guys keep asking how it does on walleye? I a can not give the a real answer as I have never tried it. Guys have said it should work really well on a jig. What do you think? As the bait is sitting still, the tail of the bait will rise up, when is is being used like a swim bait it will roll from 3 to 9 o-clock. It seems to come through the water really nice. Just don't walleye fish, thanks.
