It took me a little bit of time to figure out how to carve a 2D shape into a equel 3D shape with some cheep chiesels and sand paper. Then i figured out,a Dremel tool is a lure makeing god! lol Now I just need a lathe and ill be set
I make alot of the baits I fish with.. crank baits, jigs, spinner baits, plastics what ever lure I have purchased that dont quite do the way I want it , I make one that will do what I need. I still buy other companies baits, but its getting to be less and less.
Its sooo awesome the first time you catch a trophy fish on your own lures, or win a tourney on a bait you made , and no one else has!
Those loke really good everybody! I started some a few years ago, they are still in a box around here somewhere unfinished! lol
You would think a carpenter would make all kinds of wood baits ! :dunno:
With as busy as I am, I'm not sure how they got there that fast!!!! Usually, I have this :cussin: going on!!! Seriously though, I do cater to the tourney crowd so I can meet short deadlines and ship to fish camps and hotels a lot!!!
My "real" job gets in the way of taking care of things even faster but I am working on that also!
I look forward to hanging out here @ Bassholes and plan on setting up some stuff with you guys to get some baits in the hands of your many members.
I was serious about helping anyone with soft plastics as well. Just shoot me an email or give me a shout...
