  1. I could definitely get a fish to bite that might be best suited for certain situations but I bet it works if used correctly
  2. This place has become brutal for spam and that is part of the reason I don’t sign in as much
  3. I went through many different phases fishing from just beginning happy to catch a fish, catching every species possibly, different styles of fishing, to chasing trophy class fish for any species possible These days I enjoy casing handmade lures for aggressive predators and searching for the big ones
  4. Look I have seen you complain about lack of interests in your posts in the past. I get you enjoy cutting up plastics and splicing them together. You may find it innovating/exciting and that is all that should really matter to your venture Personally I don’t see the wow in it. I don’t see any new skills to be developed. I don’t see it as creating something new or developing a new action/style of lure. I see it is no more then basic modifications of existing lures not developing or building a lure This is why I don’t give a lot of interest and likely why others are not jumping all over your posts. Show me something you created and developed on your own vs hacking up baits and Frankensteining together then you will get my attention I am only being honest and if you enjoy what you are doing keep at it. It’s your hobby that should be about your personal satisfaction As for lack of posts on this forum I would say it is more to do with the rules regarding showing off one’s end product outside of the gallery more than anything. This rule has caused possible members to post elsewhere that is less restrictive Great forum for gaining knowledge but lacks the ability to create a long lasting community largely do to the rules regarding posting pics displaying finished lures
  5. Has anyone tried KBS as the first coat and UV resin coats to add a thicker more flexible coat on top of The KBS? just something I have been thinking about and may have to test soon
  6. Ok for your present lure issue does your lure float level side to side? If so it likely is not a balance issue Is the lip perfectly straight? If the lip slot is crooked it will swim to one side if you line tie is crooked/off center it will also swim to one side as for commercial lure weight vs had made lure. Material used is often the case and depending on the design differences less weight maybe needed too. Lure size is just one factor hope this helps
  7. It would be simple enough to pour in layers no need for glue
  8. I have not used it but I am confident I seen a YouTube video or 2 of a clear resin stick bait being made I say build it and worst case it takes a few tries to get the kinks out
  9. Check out maple airbrush supplies in Edmonton they will likely have restorer and they have good prices
  10. Weight choice has a lot to do with goals related to action, rate of rise/neutral pause, and stability at higher speeds as well As with many things when building hard baits there is no set answer but instead it’s a matter of finding the correct combination factors to achieve the action you have in mind Personally I have built enough baits I can make a really good guess or even design a bait where I plan to use no ballast at all. But float testing a lure is a really good way to figure out a good ballast weight. Or as I have mentioned in past threads tape or elastic band your ballast to your un finished but sealed lure and give it a test run. Try different ballast weights till you get what you are looking for
  11. I also drilled small holes through the lip at least 4. I have not had any lips fail with this method. I used some cheap 4hr epoxy from the hardware store that was recommended for marine use I have never had issues with the above method but I did have lips pull that I epoxied that were just scuffed with corse sandpaper
  12. I would be checking line tie first Next float it in a clear container of water and check if it’s properly balanced odds one of the above is the issue
  13. So far the process has been positive
  14. Just sent a concept drawing to Cncmolds from the forum to get his opinion/quote
  15. Not too keen on risking money in the Ukraine with the war is cncmold.com the member cnc molds and stuff on the forum?
