  1. I have pictures in the gallery (somewhere) of some small gliders that work great. They are my smallmouth killers. I have made them in wide gizzard shad shapes and narrow shiner shapes. They both glide great but the wide gizzard shad shape catches far more fish for me, especially at Erie. The prototypes I carved out of PVC and then once I got them where I liked them I made them out of resin.

    large perch lipless

    Thank you. I wish I was still in the game.

    large lipless

    No, I do not. These were posted in regards to a conversation in the hard baits section about lipless cranks.

    Mega Traps

    Sorry Mark, that is all I got. All my weighting is before the center point of the bait. The important part was getting your weight in the best vertical spot. Depending on the height of the bait you would need to be more towards center or down at the bottom. It is a lot easer to get the weight right than a crank or a swimbait. Make sure you got a nice big flat surface on the head of the bait to act like a lip. The flatter the head the more wiggle the rounder the head the less wiggle.

    Mega Traps

    The only way I know that you can get those big liplesses is know somebody or make them yourself. I just posted in the gallery some of my lipless masters that I created for molding. They all swam great and are between 1 and 1.5 ounces. I ended up leaving the business and sold the masters to another gentleman and he uses them quit a bit. You should try carving your own, they really are not that difficult to make, just copy a picture like I did. Forgot to add that they are all between 4.5 and 5 inches long and take #2 trebles that will not tangle. They really are one of the easier baits to create but not many are doing it.

    This is a large lipless master that was hand carved from wood. Just showing that liplesses don't have to be the same old stuff.

  12. Well guys, I have been apart of TU for a while and I now have to walk away from lure making and fishing. A couple of years ago I went from a wonderful job to fully disabled overnight. I have finally hit the point that I can no longer aford to make lures or fish. I knew this day was coming but I hoped it would not. If any one is near Brookville, PA I have a bit of stuff to sell. I have over $2500 worth of airbrushing stuff I will sell for a $1000. I have loved being apart of this family and will miss alot of you but it is time to move on.

    Clear Bills

    Yes, he clearly says he bought the baits. He did not make them.
  14. I believe those are distortion temps with just heat, once you add the pressure from the expanding hot air I am sure the baits would distort at a much lower temp.
  15. I have never had a crank swell on me but I live in PA. I did a little bit of research and found that it can happen to any plastic crank. I think the only solution is to keep them out of extreme heat. Hot air expands and it has to go somewhere.

    glide baits

    Thanks Barry. These baits are deadly on the smallmouths and stripers.

    jerkbait

    Thanks. I made sure the sides were a bit wider and they are flat sided not rounded so they will flash a lot. Also made with #4 trebles and not #6's for a better hook up and land percentage.
  18. Did you add ballast weight? Do you have any finished lures that you tested so that we can see the line tie and hook hangers? There could be several things going on but you didn't offer enough information.

    bluegill squarebill

    Thanks for the compliment. I have been working on these since last August and I finally got them all the way I wanted them. I have made these in foam to and will test them side by side with the resin this year to see what is better. I can tell you now that foam has better action.

    popper

    This is my own designed topwater resin bait that will walk or pop. It is 4 inches long and weighs 1.1 ounces with #2 treble hooks. I wanted a topwater that had bigger hooks and a lot more weight so that I could throw it a mile at Erie.

    jerkbait

    These are my jerkbaits made from resin. They are 4.25 inches long and weigh .6 ounce. I have suspenders and floaters. They were designed with upgraded hooks so no little # 6 hooks to loose fish and I got the weight right so they will cast a mile.
