Center weighted bait, using cotter pins

6 posts in this topic

Thanks for the nice comments about the other blank.

I think the pic says it all. What I really like about it, is that

there is no epoxy at the bottom of the lure and no drilled

holes to finish. I used two 1/8 oz. egg sinkers for weight.

This is a little harder to do than the other method, it may

be the best way.

What do you think??

And by the way Hughesy, the mind is the first thing to go,

I started making baits in late March of this year.

Hughesy,

I too have the exact same problems you do with age. I'm 46 and alot of stuff is starting to go on me too. What you and I really need to worry about is the fact that Coley is older than both of us. B)

Skeet, tell me you're kiddin'. I thought Coley was a teenager. Now I know why his stuff is so good. The older the violin the sweeter the music!

Not that you young wipper snappers aren't putting out great work. I'm loving seeing the skill, craftsmanship, dedication, and ingenuity continue to grow in the great art of luresmithing. Keep it up guys. It does nothing but get better and better.

Sure does make a guy feel good.

You can butter me up all you want, still, no free baits. lol

The both of you have forgotten more than I'll ever know

about making baits.
