Fellas, I've noticed that a lot of people are making bass or walleye type crainks over in OZ the bass fishing scene is still very much in the start up stage as we don't have Large or Small mouth bass but we do have Estuary Perch(upto 60cm), Aussie Bass(upto 65+cm) and yellow belly upto 70+cm ) all are native fishing then we have our big fellas such as Murray Cod, Barra both can reach upto 1.5mts and then theres the trout.

My question is this how do you go about making lure moulds from scratch ? and what materials do you use to do it :huh:

we have a company that sells the kits but thats expensive as they say you can make 50+ 50or 60mm lures for trout, but the lures we use for Cod and barra can be as big as 180mm and dive upto 40ft, so this make the kits even more expensive. :cry:

This might also help but you probably already know about it.


Might give you someone more regional to talk to about materials you need.
