  1. I don't remember for sure. I think the black ones are 1oz & the yellow is 2oz. I made a bunch with 1oz, 1.5oz & 2oz. Brad
  2. I've been using silicone on my muskie jigs & it works great. Brad

    Detailed Mold

    The mold is a Collins aluminum. It happened on every pour, but I only pured 3. I didn't do any prep to the mold. The lead is ingots I bought off Ebay. I'm using a Lee pot, the smaller bottom pour model set and about #8 on the dial. Sagacious explained it perfectly (about the detail). I will try all the great suggestions & report how it turns out. Thanks to everyone. Brad

    Detailed Mold

    Sorry about that. The mold has raised eyes with a recess for the 3D eye (like a bugeye jig). When I pour it, I get the raised part but not the lead "lip" that forms the recess. I hope this helps. Thanks, Brad

    Detailed Mold

    I'm trying to pour a spinnerbait that has some small details. the problem I'm having is that the lead will not flow into some of the smaller grooves. Is there anything I can do to get the lead to fill-in those areas? Thanks, Brad

  12. Thanks, I might have to give it a try.
  13. Is RTV Silicone heat resistant? Can I make a mold out of it and use it to pour lead jigs? Thanks. Brad

    Tail Blade

  15. Those look great. Are they solid plastic? If so, how do you screw in the hook hangers and line tie? Thanks.
  16. I received mine on the 11th!!!
  17. I just picked up some .078" wire and was wondering what is the easiest wasy to bend this? I don't think I'll be able to twist/loop it but I was thinking of a coil bend, like in spinner bait wire. Would I bend it around a nail? I starting with my needle nose vise grip, but I think that will break before I ever get the bend I want. Thanks.

    Musky spinnerbait

    I know Moores sells a clevis that would fit www.mooreslures.com
  19. Can I modify a Do-it mold or is that beyond the capabilities of a dremel? I want to modify the mold to accept a .062" wire but I don't want to spend the money if I'm just going to ruin the mold. Thanks
  20. You can get supplies at the places that are listed in the post "muskie inline spinners"
  21. You can also try Moores & www.luremaking.com or www.stamina.com also I know Thorne Bros has .062 in 15" lengths in the store.
  22. Musky Mania offers a few of there lures as blanks http://www.storesonline.com/members/586683/index.htm I plan On ordering a bunch this spring to paint up. As far as Thorne Bros, I was there 3 weeks ago and they didn't have any DDD's and said they wouldn't get any until the company gets back up and running - they were bought out by Musky Mania/Drifter Tackle http://www.thenextbite.com/forum/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=2295

    Muskie Globe

    Does anyone have any experience making muskie size globes? What size wire would I use for the thru wire? also, how do epoxy the wood body without accidentally filling in the thru wire hole? Thanks.

    Thanks for the replies!!! I now know what colors to try. I'm going to try and repaint a new Manns Magnum Stretch 30+. I'm lucky enough to have a Cabelas in my town with a Bargain Cave. When they have a lot of the same color bait I like, I but them all and repaint them. I'll try to post pictures when I'm done. Thanks again.

    Nobody knows what colors these are?
