  1. I’m so sorry to hear this. Ben was a wealth of information which he gave freely. We’d talk a couple times a year . I do know he was in a lot of constant pain. Ben, save me a spot in your heavenly work shop for the day we can finally meet and we’ll knock out that perfect Crankbait..Nathan
  2. Paint the bait with silver paint..( or paint matching glitter) when dry spray with clear lacquer then shake on your glitter(do this over a paper towel so you can return the waste to the jar) when lure is covered with glitter..tap to remove access..then give another light spray of lacquer to secure glitter..when dry..put on your top coat..Nathan
  3. Great bug but photos like these need to be put in the gallery..Nathan
  4. Interesting concept but photos like this belong in the proper photo gallery..Nathan
  5. He’ll have a blast…Take some advice from one grandpa to another..Buy a dozen night crawlers..built in fun for a kids in a container..That’s what I do with my grandsons..works every time!!..Nathan
  6. Mark, I had to re-read your post about your grandson..At first I thought you gave the hooks to him as bath toys..Not the lures…Getting older really stinks…lol..Nathan
  7. Mark is right on the money…But the best tidbit of advice he gave you was in the last line…”only change one thing at a time “..Nathan
  8. Vanbass, just saw this…Pledge can work great as a protection coat for your paint if your chosen top coat doesn’t want to play nice..just dip..let dry and then top coat…As for the old and new formulas on the Pledge..It’s probably been 8-10 years since it changed…I believe if you google you’ll find more information on it..Nathan
  9. Fish Pirate, thanks for the reply..I assume your using the brush on formula instead of the spray on?..Nathan
  10. I should have seen that one coming BobP…It appears no one is familiar with it ( or is not saying anything lol)..I’ll do a little research and see what I can find out and report back..Nathan
  11. Your spinner will catch fish..just need to get a few under your belt and you’ll see a improvement. With that said..photos like these need to be put in the proper photo gallery..Nathan
  12. Quick tip..if you want to try different sizes or styles of bills in your bait..you can use elmers rubber cement...It is plenty strong to hold for testing..Then when you decide on the Bill the rubber cement peals off clean then us Devcon 2ton or similar to permanently install them..Nathan
  13. If you go to YouTube and search “Redg8r” He started this site and was working on a lure copier years ago.The video maybe of some help..Nate
  14. Great pictures but they belong in the gallery..Nathan
  15. Hey guys, you can glue your diving bills in the matter of seconds using UV GLUE.It is even easier and faster if you have a hand torch to set the glue with. The UV rays pass right through the lexan like a window and set it..I doubt this will work on computer board lips..Nathan
  16. 051 would be a good diameter..you could go up to 062 but that would be a bear to bend...Nate
  17. Instead of buck tail..that might be craft fur..Nathan
  18. Nathan

    I'm an idiot

    There is one thing you should take away from this is they weren’t failures. You learned a lot from these baits that didn’t perform to your expectations.I ‘ve said it a million times.You learn more from your so called failures than you do your wins!!..Nathan
  19. Not bad at all..They will catch fish..In the future photos like these belong in the gallery..Nathan
  20. The first two things I would buy..even before a airbrush is a Bandsaw and a table top sander...you can build just about any lure with those two tools..Nathan
  21. Wondering when that would start!!..Nathan
  22. Poly acrylic is a good carrier for glitter.It is water based and can be thinned.If you use fine enough glitter you can spray it on or use a brush if you want more control over where it goes..Nathan
  23. Hillbilly, if you just search the term “jitterbug” with our search feature you’ll find a lot of information gathered through the years.I do remember someone saying the angle of the bill should be around 30 degrees ..Nathan
