  1. Is it not the 733 HD craw from basstacklke? Never mind i see that you found that it is.
  2. I made a bunch of 3/4 ounce night time spinnerbaits with the lurecraft heavy duty frames & put extra number 6 deep cup colorado blades on them & they worked great. Done good slow rolling & worked real good yoyoing them. The smallmouth eventually tore them up too buit it was fun while they were & caught some pigs on them too.
  3. I have a d i y heavy duty press fashioned after the lurecraft press & put a piece of 2x6 under it but think i'll give Leonards idea a try the next time i'm at walmart.
  4. Yep there's not a thing wrong with Ozark Trail baits. Just like any other brand of baits they all have some good ones & they all have some that may not be as good as the next but all brands have some that will catch fish. We use to use a bait that actually got us made fun of by some guys saying we were crappie fishing. Well guess what after winning 1st & big fish the next 6 times straight they didn't make so much fun of us again. I really enjoyed when they asked what we caught them on & laughing when telling them & they thought i was lying to them. A shame it wasn't a big name brand or color anybody thought would catch fish.
  5. I think it's the 4" double dipper that i have but it's definitely a top notch mold. It has 5 notched rods & if you use the top notch you can make tubes with a half inch solid head or put the rod in the lower notch & make standard hollow tubes. I've used mine a whole lot. Bob at cncmolds& things also makes a couple affordable tube molds too. Either mold whether Angling ai or bobs you'll have to cut the tails your self. That doesn't bother me a bit but it does some folks. I made a beefed up version somewhat based off of lurecrafts press using the deluxe tail splitter & it's simple. Just dip each tube in worm oil & give it a good solid press once or twice & you're ready to go. You won't have to worry about whichever mold you purchase. I only texas rig my tubes so i mix 50-50 medium to hard plastic & mine hold up well.
  6. still for sale or trade on crappie lure molds
  7. What are those that crappie fish favorite molds to make your own lures?
  8. Great mold that has only been shot 3 times to make a total of 12 grubs. I will also consider trading for crappie lure molds since getting into livescoping them. Let me know what you've got.
  9. Also if you're making two different colors one will get hot way before the other if ones dark & ones a light color so keep that in mind which also means remelts usually act the same way too.
  10. It's a little different until it cures than what you're use to. To me it seems like it's a wetter plastic, but works great in my opinion. I've used lureworks & calhouns both & like bait plastics just as much after i got use to it & never notice it anymore. Never have a problem with heat yellowing it when remelting either. I'll use either of the 3 without question but haven't used anything besides baitplastics the last few years.
  11. Wasn't long after i started having to heat longer that mine quit.
  12. I'm a believer in scents at times & this proves it without a doubt.
