  1. Look at blick, it's an art supply chain. I got mine from there, good prices and selection for most people.
  2. Nice, I'll give it a try. Thanks Cami.
  3. Hi Cami, Can you please elborate on what you would use for a "cold coat" to cover the bait after applying the powder? Thanks

    This is good advise. Go there and find a similar blank and in the description you will find the sizes for hooks, eyes ect.
  5. You could also drop down to a finer sand paper, like say 220 grit.
  6. Yea, I had the same idea a few years back and looked it up, it had been patented many years ago. We all think about these little lures and often come up with similar solutions. Imagine that. I laughed when I read the part about the bail breaking the line, that has happen to me so many times, it's ridiculous.
  7. This is quite close and is one of my favorite lures.
  8. Nice. I'm digging the bluegill paint job, definitely a fisherman catcher. What do they weigh? How do they cast? Is that pvc?
  9. Nice Mark! I too use super glue all the time. A really neat thing I do is use it to build small wooden things like stands or jigs ect. . Just apply the glue to one piece of wood and moisten the other piece with accelerator then carefully line them up before they touch each other then press them together and hold them tightly togather for about 10 sec. . The resulting bond is very strong, Not quite nailed together, but still way stronger than you would need for many applications. It's just cut and glue instant building of whatever wooden thing pops into your mind.
  10. Try Barlows. They just got me an order of bodies and parts super quick.
  11. Sound like the etex and devcon may not be playing nice together, or maybe the etex is not fully cured before you go on to your next step. You can glue in the lip with superglue. That should hold it in and it cures very fast. Also the slot should be kind of snug.
  12. This type of thing works. You can get it at art stores or craft stores.
  13. Check out the list of lure mold companies above, and you shall find what you seek. Starting with bass tackle .com would be a good place to start.
  14. The way that the tail is connected, if it where to be placed a bit under water, I think it would have a good chance of wobbling to and fro, pivoting on that one connection point like a feathered treble, or not. Just something to play with.
  15. Looks pretty good Epp. I just chanced upon someone else having a go at essentially the same thing . Here it is:
  16. My guess is watermelon/black flake with lime /black flake.
  17. Keeping the bait moving forward a bit should increase your hookups. When a bait is just sitting on the water and not moving forward, you will get your worst hookup ratios.
  18. I suppose you could seal it inside and out. Then slip it on a piece of wire or plastic that you coated with a lubricant like oil ect.
  19. It would cut up easy with a grinder and a cutting wheel. Then put in trash bags and put it out a bit at a time with your trash. Not hard at all.

    Nice! I've been thinking of something similar. can we get a couple of pics out of the water? Thanks.
  21. For wood poplar. For a different approach, I've made some out of sculpty clay that dries very quickly in the oven. You could mold it up by hand then put in details while its' soft or just make it smooth then bake it and cut the details in with a dremel. Pvc trim board is also a carving option. Hmmmm, what to do?
