home made baits vs store bought?
I was digging through an old tackle box of mine and came across my homemade version of the Stalker (I believe I made this in 1987). A buddy of mine caught a couple of mid-40 inch fish on this lure back then. Anyway, after I found it, I think I am going to repaint it, re-hook it, and give it a shot for old times sake.
I have been making my own musky and bass lures since I took classes at the musky school seven years ago. Surface lures like a Zara Spook/Jackpot are much easier than I have even made one similar to a Top Raider, Jitterbug, and a Globe. Also tie my own bucktails. Lots of fun catching a fish on one that you made
Hope this comes through was a great show today on 105.7 the fan!! WOW it actually worked don’t know how I did it :) LOL
Wait until you get to the 21-18 minute mark for a good laugh!! Love all you guys and gals!!
Thank you! I know those fish have been eating good and also pre-spawn. Was interesting to find out from one of their biologists that the 40.50 & 42.50 were fin clipped on the left pectoral fin on both. Found out they were stocked in 2011/12 making them only 6-7 years old!!
