home made baits vs store bought?
Mskyadk..... very nice!!!! Have not tried my hand at making or painting “hard” baits.
YES Phat Walleye now that’s what I’m talking about!!!! Love your story, one of my biggest came on a bou buck that was hot pink saw the whole thing go down when the fish hit the bait at boat side. Once in the net, and unhooked her I actually sat down and started to cry and said “I made that bait”
Keep up the good work work, would love to see some of your creations!!
I like the satisfaction I get from making my own lures... The whole process... It's art really... Like a musician, carpenter, cook, writer, even a snowman maker... My PB musky came on a first cast second pull at a place I never caught a fish before... But I prepared myself for it in every possible way... Except for its size... What a thrill...
I had one bigger and it opened my snap on my leader as if it were a paperclip... Lesson learned ... Now I change those out first thing... How could I have not thought of that?!!
I saw this fish inhale my lure as it stalked it... It came back jumped out next to me danced on its tail like a hula dancer for a few shakes and dove back in + took off downstream! And that was the last I seen her, except for her opening her mouth and shaking her head above water in the rapids... Not much later slack line after my snap gave, unknowingly just a story now... Those are hardest!
I've been sharpening the hooks on the baits that you made me! :)
And getting out scouting weeds and finding some crappies here and there.
Dang those are gorgeous lures! Can't wait to get mine!
