  1. i am looking to get a couple of custom CNC jig molds made and possibly a buzzbait head. anyone have any suggestions?
  2. its interesting. i have experienced attraction and triggering in several fishing situations, couple examples... 1. jig fishing - the jig is both an attraction and trigger lure that can be manipulated by the user. specifically talking vertical jigging here. large aggressive movements to attract, and small jiggly movements to trigger 2. musky glide baits - these are great attractors, fish love to come and check them out. if you are not moving fish a glide bait is a great way to see a fish. and they do trigger and catch fish as well but attracting is their specialty. This all got m
  3. Watched this old Doug Hannon video the other day. In particular the first part where he is talking about attraction and triggering qualities of lures and what he prefers and why. Curious what others here who build lures think of this and do you apply the methodology and if so how to the baits you build. Doug Hannon - The Bass Professor - Catching Big Bass (1986) Youtube wont allow me to embed the video but this is what it is titled if you wish to check it out.
  4. very cool. always fun to get a few on something new. if fish eat them you are usually onto something.
  5. only paints i pre mix are base colors where coverage is king for all accent colors i do exactly as mark and mix in the bowl. i prefer this as depending on the particular detail im doing i may want more or less paint / reducer. Like i might thin down a gold pearl a lot if im just trying to get a sheen on something, or i might spary it straight if im doing dots
  6. this is all cost based, driven by labor and environmental rules in US. We are happy to keep US under regulation and let other countries profit and burn the environment from deregulated manufacturing. Yes they could easily be made in the US, and if there was a profit model to do so it would be done.
  7. if your coming to MN you NEED a topwater, a walk the dog or tail prop or popper are all fun projects.
  8. a good example of a deep diver "hunter" is a reef runner 800. a lot of people dont like as they are "unstable" and "hard to tune". they are a walleye trolling staple for me
  9. I work for a large company in a product development role. I can tell you this, the bigger the company the less they care if the product "works" right. What they need to do is sell stuff profitably good bad or otherwise. Most have great ideas internally that never see daylight due to timing, market or whatever. Personally if i had a great bait that i could reproduce consistent quality catches and is manufacturable, you'd be better off doing an LLC. There is enough power in social media these days to not need the big companies anymore. Its a great time for entrepreneurs imho.
  10. i have a master and it does not spray as well as my iwata does, but i can paint stuff with it. It generally likes a bit more pressure and is a little fussier with tip dry. I use it with the 05 needle mostly ...and should add i have to thin paints with it a bit more it as well, thats not a big deal to me i just mix it in the airbrush bowl with a toothpick. for $30 id have no issue buying one to see if i like airbrushing if you are on the fence. Otherwise its a good investment to buy a good one to start. i see no way to lose in this one
  11. i just got some new blades laser cut for some globe baits im making. hopefully will have a batch done here in not too long
