Hi , folks ,
Just made a little video tonite displaying my latest lure construction , still in a blank condition , though , ...... probably one or the other fellow carver in here could take advantage or gain some input from my work !
Constantly carving and turning new blanks these days , wonder when I'd ever get to feel like finally painting them !

Great video my friend. I'm always amazed at how much thought you put into your lures. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this great idea and taking the time to video it. Really answers many questions. I will be using it.
I can never really cast far enough when chasing breakers or fishing from the bank.

Interesting design. I liked the tip about using the straw to keep the weights from getting glued together.

Thanks so much for your interest in my work and your kind words , fellas , ......I appreciate it verry much !
On Friday at work I've had another idea on how to furnish sucha plug with shifting internal weights and instantly put it to practise Saturday afternoon , ........here is the outcome :
To me it seems that this one here is a tad easier to furnish , as drilling centered holes and turning down closure plugs is easier than furnishing a reasonably accurate deep groove and a matching closure piece .
Really looking forward to the first bathtub swim test of these pike plugs , ...........if successful , I'd surely do some other variations , ...only lack enough time for painting all of my blanks !

I can see you cut a lot of hand work out of the process. I look forward to the pictures of the pike you catch on it.

Dieter is the TU Metal Meister. Take a look at some of the spoons and metal lures he makes.
Vodkaman is the resident TU Plug Engineer, vortexually speaking.
