  1. Hello, I look for a shop where I can buy some big unpainted jerkait for pike/muskie. Someone have website to advice me ? Thanks in advance
  2. Hello I`ve not done any crankbaits in ages so this was a challenge and it took avery long time to get them right. These have a very wounded type of action, spastic and unpredictable. Goes deep. Rattle inside. The fins are soft so they will bend when fish strike. Cheers from Jaraalbaits sweden
  3. Arctic Char Glide bait with tail

    I have made a video on how I painted it which can be found here.
  4. Crankbait/Wobbler instructions?

    Hi everyone! I have made lures for about 4 years now. Mainly Jerkbait gliders and Tailbaits for pikefishing but I never made any crankbait/wobblers. I want to learn how to make Crankbaits now cause I like trolling for pike :)! Here is my questions: How do I know how thick the radius of the lip should be compared to how thick the wood of the lure is? How do I know how near the front/head of the lure I should attach the lip? How long should the lip be? How sensitive is a crankbait for different weight positions? Is there some kind of formula for these moments as a starting point for a newbie or is it just trial and error (as usual) :)? You can see the lures I've done before at Instagram: pickadollbaits Thanks! /David

  6. Homemade Bucktails

    A pair of Muskie Bucktails I made with #9 Fluted Indiana Blades. Both baits have single 5/0 hand tied treble's dressed with Marabou and bucktail. The main bodies have a combo of Bucktail and Feathers, with a Crystal Flash/Tinsel for accents. With the marabou, the baits look like they are breathing in the water.

  7. Voodoo Child Spinner

    homemade spinner using mixed materials: blade made from stainless steel eating utensil/ spoon, Clevis made from drilled/ flat stainless stainless steel, bone bead drilled out & carved in Skull style, w bead chain inserted through eye sockets & wrapped in copper wire, chartreuse green maribou attached in same bead, drilled red dice, with assorted beads, painted steel weight body, and hand tied black buck tail on 1/0 treble hook. This thing THROBS due to the deep cup shape of this tablespoon blade. I catch pike on this in 15-25 feet of very weedy, tinted green water. the skull bead w/chain spins as does the dice . ...I say a prayer and roll the dice every time I use this, I'm still trying to break 40" lol

  14. Grandma's Lures

    So it's been awhile since I posted a thread on here but I've been reading most of them anyway...I kinda went into hibernation here in Minnesota over the winter. But now I got my hand on some nice Balsa and basswood and was thinking about making some grandma lures as well and working on perfecting my jerkbaits. But its the grandma's I am asking about I have the design from a few websites that we all know on here and have decided to use metal lips on them since the rivers here tend to destroy plastic. But what I am curious is has anyone made the smaller versions of these... it seems most fish in the ole mississippi prefer smaller baits even if there a large fish and the most common bait fish in the river is the chub. So I figured I would try to come up with a chub sized grandma and try foiling it and painting it and all that but just figured I would see if anyone had any input on ballast and any other odd ideas about the design of this lure from large ones to the smallest size. If you not sure what a grandma lure is I'll post a pic below. and Wobblerbau has the pdf for design here if anyone wanted it http://wobblerbaujw.jimdo.com/schablonen/wobbler/#Wobbler (use chrome and hit translate if you browser doesnt offer it)

  24. Best Pike This Season

    Here is my best pike of this season(in fact for a few years now) , .....not the "magic meter" though , but 94 cms(scratching 38") . Was a bit dramatic to boat it , as the first attempt to put it in the net had failed , ....I was only lucky , that both hooks of my proven homemade crankbait had nailed that fish quite firmly . The successful bait is one of my earlier ones , ....maybe around 12 to 15 years old ! Thanks for your interest , ....cheers , Dieter
