Bass on a hand poured 5" swimbait
« on: April 04, 2017, 06:25:19 AM »


I hadn't caught a fish on this bait and a dozen or so hung on the rack in my basement. So last year I went to a lake that has quality bass that I hadn't fished much and caught eight bass in one cove - one after the other !

The injection mold only has one cavity so pouring is time consuming. Pearl or off white did the trick for the bass so that's the only color I need (though I have poured them in green pumpkin with gold flakes).

Another species bit this hand 4" poured swimbait that was made using a 4 cavity silicone mold:


That crappie must have been really hungry!

I've poured countless baits, but that feeling never gets old.
"I made that and caught one!"

That was one hungry crappie!
Great job!

awesome!!

Just like FRC said, it never gets old when you catch one a bait you made with your own hands.

If I can get caught up with this site (I've been building the other half of the site lately, to be unveiled shortly) I plan on starting to pour again. I just love the satisfaction of creation and then catching with them.

Other than pouring old designs, I've been modifying soft plastics and experimenting with them on bass and pan fish. Today over 130 caught, yesterday over 80 - all with mods of designs I either came up with in the last five years or of old classic lures (Sassy Shad and Slider grubs). Confirming theories peels away all the mystique and BS that limits most anglers, myself included.

Who would have thought that crappies would attack a 4" swim bait ? !(not that I would regularly use 4" swimbaits to target crappie.)

Who would have thought that a grub in the shape of a bullet and pearl in color would catch so many fish of different species and sizes? !

Who would have thought that a 2" grub with a triangular cross section (three flat sides) would catch so many fish? !

Theories tested and confirmed.

The variables as regards to specific lures (color, size, alterations) is amazing when one swaps them and tests them on the water. I would like to think the lures I make are special, but after so many years of making them, know differently (though some of my unique designs do kick ass....) If anything, hand pours are as good as any store bought lures and far cheaper to make than buy.
