  1. i use the thin super glue a lot when prototyping and building test baits. and use the gel on stuff like eyes, if using screws or twistwire. not sure how long the superglue sealing will last, but some of them baits are getting up there now.
  2. maybe like a vmc hybrid swimbait jig? has a screw lock. the do it screw lock would probably be pretty easy to mod to get the 30* hook in there
  3. most glides have a lot of belly weight, dropping the belly might help if it moves weight down. Does it sink level?
  4. kbs is pretty good for light lures. i like tru coat for bigger stuff, and it thins well with DNA but you have turn them to level. Im actually just in the process of doing a swimbait with KBS over Tru coat to see if i can get just a tad harder shell
  5. have had good luck with KBS pouring out of the jar in a dixie cup or whatever then brushing it on. Brush on then hang with drip wire. Use this on most of our personal walleye stuff. I usually just make sure the can is cleaned off and use a piece of plastic wrap and put the lid back on. Nothing fancy.
  6. there is no wrong in fishing. fish and have fun. try some stuff. no absolutes. like rapala "fixing" the wiggle wart i think new and unusual, erratic movements will always get them if you can fish them efficiently.
  7. you can vacuum form polycarbonate. lots of video's out there on the subject. i think that'd be the best way to make a slightly more complex shape vs a roll or bend.
  8. this is from memory...and that's shakey at times so take that into account lol lure was made famous on large charter boats that would take groups out and customers would cast out around the boat trying to catch walleye. its a great bait for counting down and catching suspended fish. i believe the extra wire is just bite off protection, done this way for simplicity. no wire leaders needed, and not having to re-tie from bite off's from pike. i dont think is a specific requirement for this to be a fish catcher, might be better with a flouro leader in fact. french blades give very even lift. so if you cast it, count it down to 10 ft, and steady retrieve it will tend to stay at 10 ft. this is also true on bucktail spinners. colorado's will have more lift and thump, will need slower retrieve. Willows have less lift and more flash, will need a faster retrieve speed. so just tools to you to use.
  9. I primarily use wood but... 1. depends on. some wood ill prime if i want to fill in imperfections. but if I have details then i dont 2. depends on. some primer yes. i use a lot of clear bases then no. 3. depends on. what you are trying to accomplish with paint. best to let sit 24 hrs before clearcoat or so 4. depends on. big stuff i epoxy coat and turn. lots of small stuff i spray clear. KBS or UVLS high gloss. there are very few absolutes. less is more most but not all the time.
  10. what do you use to ballast the trim board. can you pour lead into it? or do you have to glue it?
  11. here is another from the weekend. i spray between layers of paint, but plenty shiny and clear as a bell. im not sure if you'll ever get that glass look with spray you can with dipping.
  12. here is a 110 size jerkbait. this has kbs diamond clear (spray) between layers of creatix wicked paints, and a couple of finish coats. it goes on thin and cures fast, at least in my experience.
  13. we ran some Victory hooks this fall and had good results with them. id have to fish them a bit more for a 100% blessing, but worth a try if trying to save some $
  14. buy the wife a crikt. make all the stencils you'd ever need. win win
