Any one have a link to one? I know how to make the basic shape. I am interested in how to connect the jointed pieces?.

Any info on making jointed baits would help

Awww, Shucks! By the sound of the title, I thought you were the one providing the tutorial. ;D

Wooden swimbaits are out of my league. Hope someone chimes in or you might find some information at www.tackleunderground.com

I would love to see some info as well. I really want to try making some big wooden muskie lures that are jointed.
Canoeing into the remote lakes of Canada in search of monster smallmouth. Then reality hits and I spend most of my time fishing Michigan's streams and northern lakes for decent smallies!

Well I'm nowhere near as good as some of the garage crafters of this forum, and I'm not a specialist with wooden swimbaits either... but I can show you how I usually link the different parts of my swimbaits.

You should be able to understand it on this picture below !
(I will try to show a step-by-step approach after ).

Here are a few other shots I did a couple of years back !
This bait was made out of Balsa wood and not destined to hit the water... rather a training to enhance my carving skills.


Here the back of the front halve of the balsa bait.

Here are the 2 eye-screws glued in place at the back of the front halve of the lure
Posted Image

Here you can see the 4 eye-screws glued in place. I normally use only 2 that are the one in the front halve of the lure.
Posted Image

That's the rear halve of the bait
Posted Image

The nail goes through those tiny holes in the wood, as well as though the eye-screws !
Posted Image

View from the top, you can see the top of the nail I used for the axis !
Posted Image

Here you can see the two parts jointed together !
Posted Image

And here's the bait when finished ... without its lip though !
Posted Image

Hopefully those many pics won't slow down the site !

I hope it helps you with your own wooden swimbaits ! Homemade lures are a lot of work, but a lot of fun too.  :)

Feel free to ask questions.... I'll do my best to answer.

Well as for me, I'm just from Paris (the city ::) )

Dave, I don't know if this joint method is really mine, I'm sure a lot of people have been using that or similar in the past.
Be sure to keep us posted on your next creation. Do you plan to do a gizzard shad photo-finish on that bait ? Or will you paint it ?

I use a super-glue that I mix with very fine sawdust, which gives a wood aspect somehow .... I feel it also makes the glue part harder....

I use the same sawdust+glue when I have to correct a mistake a wooden lure .... Sometimes you just carve too much  ::)

Hope it helps !
