As if I didn't have enough lure projects going on... Now I have no choice but to try swimbaits... amazing work you folks do.

Yeah, what Braveviper said. Welcome to our addiction. Now that the hook has been set, there is no escape for you. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

I've been an addict for a while, spinning SW stuff. These swimbaits are the nuts though. I'm sure I pull most of my hair out trying to make one.

Keep it simple. Just remember what Larry Nixon says, "My brain is the size of a pea".
If I can do it, anyone can.
And a friend of mine won a tournament with a 12 1/2lber he caught on an old, faded, beat up, bill-missing 10" swim bait that he threw shallow, and then just twitched, because it didn't swim worth beans.
We sometimes make things harder than they need to be.

Yea as stated b4 we really do hate you too !
Ive been here now for a couple years .. it started as a hobby and to make custom crankbaits as quality baits hit 15 or more each .. I said to my self .. surely I can make the baits I convented but could not force my self to buy.. so I got on the net and did some research ... I figured If I could redo all the wood in my boat and fiberglass from what I found on the net surely someone had info on making your own baits .. and sure enuff .. tackle underground appeared in a search and a lure makin junky was soon born.. especially after winning 2 tournaments back to back, on my own baits .. man then I was really hooked!
From there it escalated .. pretty soon people wanted to buy my lures .. wow !!! Im worthy enuff for people to want my baits enuff to PAY for them ?!>!??!?! wow .. dollar signs flashed in my eyes .. then reality set in .. when I figured out how much time and money would be needed to crank out consist baits to sell .. soon that idea passed and I went back to making them just to fish with and give to friends.. occasionally selling a few if someone really wanted them bad enuff to pay my price .. which is rare lol
Then it went from crankbaits .. to wood swim baits, jigs, and spinner baits, and now even plastics are startin to look good lol .. after you learn to make your own .. its hard to pay for lures !
God help you .. your now going to have to join LMA " lure makes anonymous! "

Hi, my name's David and I'm a lure painter. I've been clean for about 16 hours. Thank you

Thinking about it is falling off the wagon!
I also just make them for myself and friends. If I sold them, I'd have to service them, and hear all the complaints that fisherman have in abundance.
We all know it's the lure, not the angler. )
My Dad told me, when I first started running construction jobs for him, that I wasn't doing my job until my name was on the outhouse wall.
So I'm used to being "hated".

Another thing you'll really hate is the fact that you can post links here.
You'll miss out on all the PM's telling you what has been deleted.
