I have lurked here for a while. A couple of guys (thanks Jerkbait and Husky) recently guilted me into signing up and posting a few photos. These are pikie minnow type plugs I did on the lathe. Largest is 9 inches and 5 oz, small one is 1 1/2 inches and 1/16 inch. All but the small one are thru-wired. All are of Alaskan Yellow Cedar. The small one I use on the ultra-light when I take the nephews and nieces bluegill fishing. The rest are for stripers.

Now that's what I'm talking about! A bit of a different look. I'm sure we're all going to have a nice give and take here.

Thanks guys. I've done pretty well with pikies down this way. I uploaded a few individual shots to the gallery too.

Welcome apb, those are some beautiful baits you have built.

THe man has got much more. And it's all fish "Ketchin'" proven. Let's just say that if he flooded the market with his stuff, Cabelas would get concerned!

Husky, you are too kind :oops: Cabelas has nothing to worry about, I have no plans to give up valuable fishing time to compete with them If you ever want to test a foam bait on freshwater stripers, drop me a line and we'll work out a trade.

I knew it was only a matter of time. I go to the shop to paint up some blue shad bodies and APB makes the scene. Welcome!

Who is this Andrew and what have you done with Jigman?
Posted 23 January 2005 - 10:27 AM
I tossed Jigman in my melting pot and used him for ballist in plugs Actually, the name was already taken on the site, so I picked an alternate name I used on other sites.
Jerkbait, sounds like it was a painting day all around. Painted up 36 plugs yesterday too. I'm sure at least one of them will end up spending some quality time with you

Can't wait to see the new paints APB. Especially since I hope to posess some. Loading up some picts of the whole group to the gallery. Take a look APB and we will do some trading. I need some input on YYZ paint patterns. I will send your shad out after I make Bates drool over it at the WV sport show next weekend. Another frosty day so I be buildin'.
