  1. I was just curious to see what adhesive you all recommend for applying 3D eyes onto swim jigs. I've been using BSI 30 minute slow cure and it seems to work well but I would like to find something that doesn't take so long to set up. Thanks in advance -Alec
  2. does anyone know where I can get some all black eyes for my crankbaits that I paint?
  3. Hey there! was wondering if there is any downside to using a hard 3d eyes on a top water frog bait...or any kind of non top water swimmy baits for that matter ? my fear is that they will weigh down the bait and interfere with the intended action any input would be appreciated! thanks!
  4. Boy, do I hate putting eyes on swim baits and jerk baits. I hate it so much I refuse to do it! But it does look really cool! The worse part about it (for me) is heating small amounts of clear plastisol to dip he bait in to seal the eyes. So: 1.) Is there such a thing as stick on eyes that will stay on without applying a coating of clear? 2.) Has anyone tried clear Plasti-Dip? (https://plastidip.com/). If this works at least I would not need to continually heat up plastisol. BTW, I am off fishing the next 5 days or so (no internet) so do not think I am rude if I do not participate in any conversations that may occur on this thread for awhile.
  5. I Need some help with Wiggle Wart eyes. Is there a stencil out there that people are using? I did manage to get one out of 4 attempts. But that was just a matter of dotting the middle of the eye. I'm trying to find the correct hole sizes but my attempts at making something perfectly round and pliable enough to bend around the blank hasn't been productive. Thanks Ron

    3 D Eyes

    I recently received an order of 3-d eyes from Lisa and Ed's eyes, an advertiser on this site. They have great product and service. The eyes are 3 color adhesive eyes with an oblong 20% pupil. They are priced $1.50 per 100, which is cheaper than you get them from China. Larger eyes are a little more. The three colors and pupil make a noticeable difference, esp when coated with epoxy. Shipping was fast and cheap. I am very happy with the product and will do my business with them from now on..

    Glass Eyes

    Chance Encounter: I bumped into a fellow making jewelry a couple of days ago got me thinking. What he was doing might have useful fishing lure potential. I have always liked the real glass eyes on the old wooden lures. As soon as I saw these the bells were going off. The process: This Craftsman was making beads and pendants by taking a short section of a glass rod and setting it on another piece of glass and putting several such assemblies into a temperature controlled oven. A while later out comes coin sized pendants with a fancy design that was the section of glass rod. The glass sheet and section of colored rod are melted together as one and the glass "slumps" into a nice curved smooth oval. The glass rods with the design that is extruded from end to end are called "Millefiori." (Various spellings exist for the same thing) Result: After a bit of chatting and I mentioned my interest in making fishing lures and the possibilities of just using the "slumped" rod sections as lure eyes. After a few odd looks, we all know what I mean, he warmed up to the idea and went on to explain in detail the process. Today in the mail I got a nice assortment of various sizes and colors of what he had on hand. I think they will make great eyes. Even better yet with the right colors. The ones he sent are from about 1mm to 6mm right in the range that are usable for bass sized lures. When I get some lures finished using the eyes I'll post for the group to see.

  10. Where is the best place to buy the best blanks and accessories for baits? I have searched and found a few but seems everything has been the same so far. I am looking for a variety. I have seen pictures of baits that looked awesome and I would love the blanks but I can't find them. So I would just like to ask peoples opinions on where they get there blanks and accessories. Thanks to everyone!
  11. Hey guys could you recommend a website/store that sells quality blank crank baits and eyes? Preferably one that you think would ship to Canada!
