  1. I'm looking for 168MM S-Waver blanks. The only place I knew to get them was Avid tackle (who was a flake) and seems to have gone out of business now.
  2. Yes it has poor action when twitched, good quality glide baits work even on a slow steady retrieve.
  3. This is my first ever attempt at making a wood lure. I'm looking for advise on what to do to this bait to get it to work better. It is suppose to be a suspending glide bait. It sinks a little to fast and it has no side to side action when reeled slow. I'm thinking moving the line tie lower on the bait will help. I also plan to remove a little lead from the front of the bait as it pauses head down and sinks a little to fast. The front of the bait currently has a flat front like a lipless crank, would rounding this over and taking the lip off help or hurt it. I used the basic shape of a Salmo slider for a pattern although I have never seen one just a picture of one. I found a drawing of what I think is a Salmo slider pattern, but mine does not have this profile looking at it from the top down. It is shaped more like this as I didn't find this pattern till after I had this made. You guys that have made glide baits before what can I do??? other then pitch it in the trash and start over.

    This was an experiment that started all the Metallic line of baits my first outing with this bait boated a 7+ lb largey and I knew It was a winner.

    This color has been a instant hit with the LM bass and fishermen.
  6. This is one of my all time favorite colors Strippers love this color as well as LM bass.
  7. These are a super heavy salt bait
  8. I have developed a new Metallic line of baits that really pop. This sparkel is way better in in person then you see these then photos can show,
  9. If LFG can make it through a brain tumor lets hope Bear can to.
  10. I found out today he has a brain tumor, and most likely will not be back in business.
  11. We need a list of all companies that sell soft bait making materials other then molds. Like plastisol , glitters, colors, bags, salt all in one place , with ratings so you know who to buy from.
  12. I tried to log into Bearsbaits website to order more plastic last nite and the website was shut down, so I waited to call today to find out the phone # has been disconnected. Did they go out of business????? Does anyone know of another source of Calhoun soft Plastic? I need some ASAP
  13. You just have to make a topwater bait so you can drag it on top of the ice.
  14. I like this idea and although I have never made a hard bait from scratch, I plan to here soon and love to see how other people make baits. I would suggest doing a photo montage of building the lure with at least 3 pictures plus a brief summery on the basic process of how they made the bait. The first pix would be on making the lure body, another of the finished lure before painting, and one after painting. Plus one more of a fish caught with that bait. The pixs should to show the bait in the fishes mouth so you can tell it was the same bait. I think this could be a fun contest. So whoever wants to join in send in 4 pictures and put all qualified entries up for a vote. I will put the prize up for this and send the winner 4 packs of my world famous Sink-N-Fool baits. They are a extra heavy salt stickbait that out fishes all the other stickbait hands down Here is a few samples of what they are. I have a new metallic bait line the Red Shad, Silver Shad, Fool's gold, Alabama Craw, and Midnite blue Shad that is really cool. The winner will get to pick out of these what they want. The metallic colors will be one of the 4 in the picture per pack not mixed like the photo.
  15. I made some typos I see in the Subject line it should read Gold or Silver Foil. here is a picture of it. It will give you a chrome like finish when done correctly.
