A source for these type inline spinner body's

Recommended Posts

I bought this one but I would like to try and make some that are heavier. I am thinking up to an ounce maybe 1 1/2 to throw at schools of Spanish Mackerel when they have bait balls pushed up on top and are busting them.

Thinking along the lines of a Glass Minnow.

Thanks.

Yes Do-Its lure body mold only goes to 3/8oz.

Hilts has one that goes to 1/2oz.

I've not seen one ounce lure bodies in that particular style.

A custom mold could likely be had in the $150-$175 range to include several sizes above and below one ounce.

Or you could use lure bodies of a different style that would be quite similar in function.

I'll look at a different body style I guess to experiment with and if the idea works then the mold can come into play.

Thanks.

You could always use the Pencil Sinker mold and lay a think wire, close the mold and hit it with a rubber mallet to make the groove.  Then mold it with a wire just like the Lure Body mold 

Pencil Sinker  Sz: 1 1/4, 1 3/4, 2 1/2

A quick search , These go up to an ounce weight.thumb.PNG.11ae361c3f40b4c33b478e95ce6f4be7.PNG

Those look larger in diameter and shorter than a typical lure body.

I guess a person could always buy a pack and try them out.

I thought about that as well.

You would have to be careful to get your pull pin slot even on each side.

Does the mallet method make a deep enough slot or is a dremel also needed?

I suppose if a person had one of these pencil sinkers of the appropriate size you could also cut off the eyelets and make a silicone mold.

Or use lead wire shape the ends and make a silicone mold.

The pencil sinker idea is good. I had the same thoughts on keeping the hole " centered" in the body. I have pull pins from some egg sinker molds that I could use.

Going to play with this over the winter and be ready for spring. water hits 70 d and they will be back.

Those are most likely from the existing Do-It mold.

In fact I own that mold.

But they only go up to 3/8oz. The OP is looking for 1oz and larger sizes

I would say wood drill bits and some ss wire you got your custom mold.

2 pieces of 1x3 clamped together and drill the meeting point

pull apart tape wire to just below bottom of hole and re-clamp boards back together, make sure wire is straight and in the middle of whole.

pour in lead you are done...... different size bit to adjust weight.
