  1. Dollar stores, craft stores, pets, old Xmas tinsel and whatever random places you see stuff worth while I hunt and held a trappers license so I got a lot of stuff from this too A good friend of mine is a big taxidermist that has clients that send him animals from all over the world. I got a ton of trim ends from him. Lots of the materials are not cheap and hard to come by
  2. Sanding stones, sanding drum, dremel, rasps, and sand paper/pocket knife combo are all things I have and still use to make concave faces all depends on the depth and style I am going for. But my plugs are a little different then what is normally done on a lathe. I had carve all my bodies and they are not the conventional design you gave as an example
  3. I have built lots of lures for salmon and Lakers. I prefer 0.51 wire or .092 eye screws. Mid size Lakers are not really hard on lures but big chinook and Lakers over 15lbs can be. Most often the damage is done in the net not during the fight. Chinook are really bad for gator rolling in the net and breaking lures that is why you see a lot of salmon plugs with bead chain and large barrel swivels or line through designs I grew up on the west coast of BC and did lots of fishing for salmon
  4. No problem we all start somewhere. I don’t know how many lures I have made but I also can’t remember how many I screwed up too lol
  5. Oh and if you move this post to the hard bait section you will get way more help
  6. It flops over on it’s side on your retrieve? Odds are if you move the tie point from the top of the head to the tip of the nose it will ride true.
  7. I still build stuff and most originals are wood. I also build some personal wooden one off’s Between re thinking my direction with lure making and hunting season I slowed down a bit. I have been more of a lurker the last while
  8. Mid depth diving plug with soft tail I have decided I am done with lexan and will no longer be working with it.
  9. I like the paint job it’s similar to one that has be deadly on pike this year but your work is more detailed then mine
  10. My first were around the same and no Internet, books, or mentors just plan old stubborn winging it carving along with rattle can paint jobs they were ugly as sin but some of them caught fish
  11. My painting skills are ok but it is not my strong point so I don’t offer a lot of advice in this area The only advice I can really offer is check out YouTube and practice when it comes to painting. Personally I have found the best thing for me has been play with the air bush and try things out till it works.
  12. I make one off wooden lures for myself and all my resin lures are molds of a wooden master i would say a large portion of those making their own hard baits carve them out of wood
  13. Yes this design has caught pike, musky, and large mouth. Personally I have only caught pike but that is the target species in my area I have made about 40 of them that have found there way to a few provinces in Canada
  14. Not much of a computer guy but if you search surface paddler on the forum it should show
