    Prop baits

    About time i showed my work. 6 PVC prop baits all hand painted with dry brush. I found that easy baits like topwater and crankbaits with simple color patterns are more fun and less stressful to make than swimbaits and such But thats just my opinion . I Encourage anyone interested in making baits to give it a try. Its really not hard. Good luck all
  5. So I designed a new bait, had it drawn and cut. It works great, I use half the bubbles to get this one to float. It is way move soft too. So it has a chug nose, ribbed body and a big paddle tail. See video of it on my facebook page. Mudd Butt Baits.
  6. I just cut finished worms in half, got them to go back in the mold, not easy with the popper in the middle.

It has the heat dial and is almost the right size for pouring 40-150 baits at a time. I put the lid on to get the plastic up to temp and in bewtween
  8. I am new to the site and to pouring my own worms. I will have my aluminum two piece mold coming next week, along with all the stuff needed to start. I have Lure Craft 536 and 502, supper floater bubbles, oil and two colors. I have searched the site for info on working with the bubbles and found only a few posts. I am looking to float a 5" worm with a #3 skip gap hook. I want it to float on top of the water, not float if I reel or it may float. I am coping a worm that I bought of tv 15 years ago, it will float a #5 hook without any problems. I am hoping that once I mix the oil with the b
  9. This is one of my favorites that I have carved. I am inspired by antique handmade lures and baits. Body is hand-carved basswood with felt ears and leather tail.
