Drilling Holes For Lure Eyes

8 posts in this topic

Hey Guys , I just finished painting (2) Shad Raps , craw patterns, I drilled the painted eyes out & added small raised craw eyes , due to the baits being small , will drilling the holes & raised eyes effect the baits balance and/or running true? I cant test them out , Has too much snow & Lake has lots of ice cubes in it.

Yeah I really doubt that they'll by a problem. Very good idea on the eyes, makes em look so real. Did you buy those eyes special or are they just some beads?

Hey Spider , on the right side of the TU page , theres a ad for (lisa & ed's eyes and more) the eyes have a stem , after I drill my holes , I cut 1/2 of the stem off , glue them up & insert , leaving part of the stem helps anchor them.

Mike,

Really nice job. Those eyes look great. I think they'll add to the "hydralic profile" of the lure as it moves through the water.

Delta Man,

That's a great idea to use the round headed pins for eyes.

I was wondering how to add eyes to a craw crank. I bet you could leave the pin sticking out a little, and get the "eye on a stalk" effect.

Cool

That was what i did and it worked great. I left about a half of an inch on them to make sure it really stuck in there.
