  2. Bondo Baits

    As I sit and glance at my almost now 18 hours of crafting - I stare at slight imperfections in pure dismay wondering what I could use to fix my small imperfections. Bondo is the first thing that came to mind with clay coming in slightly after.. Has anyone ever had any experience with using bondo on their hard baits for covering up imperfections of symmetry.
  3. Best YouTube Tutorials?

    Curious who you guys watch on YouTube to learn new patterns? I am just trying to see how others are doing it visually. I like this link for Brown Trout! I think it's a great final product for a beginner lure painter. Who do you guys watch? Do you have your own channels?

  11. Paul Williams Real Gill

    This is a pic of the Real Gill Swimbait I got this week from Paul Williams. This bait is massive, measuring almost 7 inches in length and 3 1/2 inches from belly to the top of the dorsal fin. It's proportioned and shaped exactly like a real bluegill. I am totally impressed with his work!!
  12. Idea!

    Hey Guys, This is just an idea. Why don't we have a thread in the hard bait section Just for reference photos? I think it would be an awesome idea to have everyone on the forms post there own reference photos, including pictures you have taken of fish you have caught. I think it would be cool to have a bunch of different photos of different fish from different places. What do you guys think? Thanks, Brad

  14. Bluegill Color on the lipless Crankbait

    This is a Bluegill Colorway I did not to long ago, I feel that bluegill is a harder color for me to paint. Sometimes I just cant seem to pull it off. Any tips would be greatly appreciated Thanks Guys, Brad
  15. I have been fishing for most of my 44 years and I am blessed with a career that allows me ample free time to enjoying the great outdoors. I recently have become interested in painting hard baits. I found this forum and I am hopeful to get pointed in the right direction. I was told an Iwata NEO gravity fed airbrush would be a good one to get started. I am curious a to what type of compressor y'all recommend, as well as what type of paint to start up painting. I have a thousand other questions as well. I am open to any "start up" tips and advice y'all recommend,. Thanks in advance!
  16. Hey everyone, I'm working on my swimbaits and can't decide on which fish pattern I should do next. I've already done my rainbow trouts a couple times now and want to try something new and challenging. The fish I'm thinking of; Native Cutthroat Trout, Brook Trout, Yellow Perch, Largemouth Bass. I put a picture of my rainbow trout so you can see my style of painting. Also a picture of my new swimbait that is needing the paint job. I'm leaning towards painting a cutthroat trout but still like those other fish patterns. Let me know guys, thanks.
