    My entry for best hand made bait. Please critique. How could this be improved?
  2. 3 Way Hairball Crappie

    3 Way Hairball Crappie Bodt length: 3-1/2” Overall length: 4-1/4” Weight: 1-3/32 oz. Hooks: #2 and #4 VMC trebles Paint: Createx paint applied by airbrush, sponge, and brush. Buoyancy: slightly negative with a level orientation in water. Sink rate: 2 seconds per foot . Construction: carved birch, dual hinged, 4 dual “v”section swimbait, Through wired to both attachment points with .041 wire. Wood is sealed with superglue, finished with 30 minute epoxy. Fins and tail: split maribou epoxied to topcoat (can be easily replaced). Innovations: True crappie profile 4 wide profile sections in 3-1/2” length swimbait. Dual “V” shaped wooden sections do not allow light to pass through the joint between sections. Through wired hinges and attachment points. Innovative holographic finish (my invention) resembles scales, provides great highlights, and generates a slight color shift. Pictures do not do it justice. Split maribou fins and tail cannot foul on hooks, compress when lure is retrieved, extend and flutter on pause allowing for great life even at rest. They do not inhibit the action of the lure like other materials. Dual attachment points Front attachment: It hunts side to side as jerkbait. It holds depth all the way to boat from 1 to 2 feet. It swims with casual action on retrieve. Rear attachment: Lure hunts side to side and up and down as a jerkbait Lure holds depth all the way to boat from 3-4.5 feet It dives quickly to 3 feet Vigourous swimming action
  3. Male bluegill swimbait

    Hi, I'm sixteen my name is Chase and this is a swimbait that I have been working on for about a month. All the gill plates and details are hand carved and the swimbait is made of pine. Also it is all hand painted by airbrush.
  4. Learn the process of creating a hand carved wood fishing lure. Watch me carve one of my poppers, from start to finish. You will get to see the process of how a wooden surface lure is carved, weighted and hardware added. Everything has been captures up to the point of the lure being ready for painting. This video was shot in one day, starting in the afternoon, and finishing up late at night. I apologize for some of the lighting at the end of the video. This is part one of a two part series. The final sealing of the wood, painting and clear coating of the lure will be covered in part two. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERFtkybduDQ

  17. So was supposed to go fishing this weekend taking old retired vets and what not... well the weather didn't play nice for a good chunk of it sooo... I found a little piece of wood in the bottom of an old guys junk drawer and got my fillet knife out since I forgot my pocket knife at home... had alot of fun another neighbor in the building came over for a beer and saw what I was doing and went and got a couple pieces of sandpaper... couple hours later we were discussing color schemes lol. It was a blast... I am amazed I didn't cut my finger up making this lol. Who needs to fish when you can hear fishing stories from the back in the day.
  18. Lil Bass

    I like making these. I know they don't look natural, but they reflect a lot of light and I enjoy making them. Tell me what you think.
