  1. anyone have a good source for gold foil? not real gold, just shiny gold color
  2. need a pretty good flat surface on top with fairly square shoulders
  3. i stuck a gamakatsu of some sort in there, its heavier wire but not all that long id have to double check the #
  4. i wanted to make some soft plastics back during pandemic when lots of stuff was sold out. i bought an injector couple molds and plastisol from do it and honestly it seems to be fine for my low volume personal use. if i was doing lots or selling or doing really specialized stuff, but i can shoot some craws and worms and go fishing whenever now
  5. yeah i was planning on doing myself if its feasible. just wasn't sure if I was missing something easy. maybe ill get a couple of the gold powder coat options and give that a go and see. maybe could spray some gold chrome airbrush over black powder that would look good.
  6. im guessing this has been covered before but i missed it if it did. needing to gold plate some jigs. doesnt have to be real gold of course but shiny gold nonetheless. what do i need?
  7. you can also run line ties through the lip slots. do this all the time with thru wire. i just drill a hole or make a notch thru the lip. maybe could use circuit board to keep thinner slot? i personally like using screw in hook hangers / line tie on a new bait until i can get them in the right spots for sure. i do this on baits that are eventually going to be thru wire as well. i hate hooks that tangle with each other or on the lips. once you get that dialed then glue some in. if you are going to add any bevels to the joint to get added movement, i think maybe it'd be better to have the pin joint on the second section of the body. but im no expert here so may make no difference
  8. ive had issue similar to that if trying to use faster setting epoxy. it starts to set up before it can evenly flow. not sure what you are using. id try a long curing like tru coat or etex, then mix for five minutes by a timer. thin with a little denatured alcohol if need be and put on the rotator overnight. With a thicker coat of tru coat i can actually see the epoxy leveling out when rotating for several minutes before it evens out, then its just about cure time.
  9. good hooks the right size. single best reason to build your own. wired on skirt. second best reason to build your own. the rest is kind of personal preference. head style, arm length, wire dia etc...are all just tools for what you want to accomplish with the bait
  10. ill try to put a pic up later if this does not make sense. if you are thinking a jointed bait like a wiley or what not, you can make open loops that the tag end goes back into the bait and tight wrap the other end to pull the open end tight into the bait. Then do the opposite on the other body part. There are a couple of good videos on youtube that show this. try searching saltwater lure building. This make a solid tight thru wire joint.
  11. i use epoxy thickened with west systems 404. Can make as thick as you want.
  12. very nice! what do you use for the tail?
  13. NVM lol i see the pic in the other post
  14. you dont happen to have a picture of this do you? i'd be interested in seeing how to do
  15. not sure if you ever watch any of Randy Blaukats youtube stuff but he did a night time spinnerbait one awhile back. Might be a good start. i dont bass fish after dark much, but do do a fair amount of musky fishing then. I have had a lot of luck with black bodies and chartreuse blades. Especially when there is a little moonlight. If its more dark moony then the golds, black nickel, silvers are maybe better.
