  1. Finished this bait before christmass, as a present for my brother... haven't much time to post, but here it is...
  2. 1. Tools that you will need: bait blank x-acto knife file or sand paper pencil 2. First you will want to get your bait blank and take you pencil and draw the details (gills, mouth, fins, etc,) that you would like to carve into you bait. (In this tutorial I am only showing how to gills and the mouth details, but you can use the same instructions to make fins or anything else) 3.Now you will make your first cut. The first cut will start at the farthest back part of the gill or as I like to say the main gill. Now take the x-acto knife and just stick in the bait along the line and then fo
  3. i like to just wet sand with 600 grit
  4. my bro and i had an 8 inch bass in a tank about 2 years ago... we would feed it gold fish, crawdads, and nightcrawlers... but every once in a while we would do a test to see what the fish wanted... shad bait with eyes, shad bait without eyes, worm with eyes, worm without eyes... and 10 times out of 10 that little bass would eat the shad bait with eyes over the shad bait without eyes or worm with eyes over the worm without eyes. So to me bass will almost every time eat a bait with eyes over a bait without eyes when they are presented exactly the same right next to each other... but then we wou
  5. Well bascially finished, just have to clear coat and then add back 2 sets of fins, sorry i blurred out that front fins, but the design is not mine and i did not get permission to make them and show them. but this is the bait, feel like i finally got the rainbow trout pattern down... hope you guys like it, feel free to comment, good or bad.
  6. 37,945 lure bodies.... thats insane, i have like 11 total lying around my garage and room.
  7. thanks guys, savacs, the bait is 7 1/2 inches including the tail and i make my baits between 4 in. and 10 in.
  8. here's my most recent swimbait, the Triple Joint Trick Trout, it is about 7 1/2 inches including tail, it is still in progress and has been a while since i have taken at wack at trying to finish it but so far it is my best looking bait with most detail. hope y'all like it.
  9. nathan, my parents locked me away in our dungen and gave a some tools and told me to start building baits and making money. but thanks again guys for your compliments, also wondering if you have any suggestions for changes?
  10. this is my new and improved 5 piece trout swimbait. First off the joints are a new improvement to the swimbait, which there is really no gap in between each peice. Second, the fins are a new material i have found that works totally awesome, its a plastic that is very durable yet bends at the touch of your finger. this bait is about 2 1/2 inches shorter than my first 5 piece trout swimbait which makes it exactly 6 inches, weighs exactly 1.2 oz. i have only been able to try it in my sink since the lake near me is closed but from what i can see it is going to be a killer.
  11. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am very impressed... that must have taken some imagination.... and the paint job is totally awesome... MAN I'M IN AWE.... that is about the most creative and functional bait i've seen and to top if off with an awesome paint job... GREAT JOB
  12. mesabooger, for the fins i used a different type of material, what it is, is rubber off of my brother's floor mat for his truck, when he bought it there was a tag end that you cut off and it was the perfect stuff, right color, tuff, flexable, so it works good. For the price i would probably start at between 100- 125. Yeah E-TEX is the only way to go. Yeah the 5 piece was something i had thought of doing for a while but never executed making it. Stuff takes some imagination and if you have that there are no limits to bait making. Thanks again guy i really appriciate your compliments and i
  13. ENVIROTEX...thats all i use and will ever use... devcon doesn't work... haha i would use any but envirotex is cheaper and better.. YS, Here is a better diagram of how i make the joints hope it is a little bit easier to understand.
  14. i live in san diego, CA and for the past 3 or 4 years swimbaits have been the rage. i recently in the last year or so started making my own swimbaits. Over the past couple of years i have picked up many tricks for throughing swimbaits. I will help you out as much as i can with what i use and what alot of the southern californian guys use. Gear: 1. first of all you definetly need to have the right gear. Using swimbaits on your normal 7' med-hvy rod and a low-profile reel just won't cut it. I tried this for the first couple of years and thought i was in good shape until i bought the right
  15. the action is very sutle... it wakes at a very slow speed... i have found that if i hold the rod tip on the water line it will wake a little bit faster and if i wake it and give it about 5 very quick jerks it looks like a trout fleeing from a bass or a trout chasing forage...but as a wake bait the head goes right to left back and forth about a centimeter each way and the tail follows through and wakes... really it is something to see because it has no lip and its like it has a mind of its own
