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
