My creations

Recommended Posts

Hate to sound biased, but there simply is no comparison to me between a wood blank vs. a plastic hollow body bait. The slight inclusions of the grain along with the other imperfections not only give a lure character, but also make for a unique action that can trigger strikes. When a bait bounces off a log and doesn't recover instantly, there is something in that second that flips a fish's trigger.

It's hard to go wrong with fire tiger. I have made a lot of variations of them over the years with different stripes and colors on many body styles. Here is a new 2" one for bass.

Thanks a lot Evan. Since I began doing this, it's been a dream of mine to start my own handcrafted lure business. They take quite some time to make, so not sure I could earn a living doing it. Still though, making money doing what you love would be a great job. Thanks again for the interest in my creations. Other than fishing, all I want to do is make more of them.

Superb work, sir!!

Thanks! It helps knowing people enjoy what I love to do. It gives me great pleasure to catch fish on my own hand made creations, and it's always nice to hear positive comments. They really fuel my passion. I also welcome any negative comments or questions in general. My quest is aimed at building the best baits on the planet, and there will be no stone left un-turned along the way. Good, bad, and indifferent, I am interested in hearing and learning everything I can.

Yeah, earning a living might not be sustainable. You could easily ask $20 or more a piece for these though. Best wishes, it's great to see these kinds of posts.

Those are awesome, store bought baits Don't even compare to those!  Are by any chance interested in selling them?

Outside of a few family and friends, I have only sold a small handful of my baits. Planning on listing some on E-Bay soon. Just not sure what to ask for them. All I know is that I spend a lot of time making them. :unsure:

I would love to buy some of those baits. The painting talent and attention to detail you have is impressive sir. Before you give ebay a shot maybe you could open up the sales to us first.

A couple SM bass caught by a customer on my Tennessee Shad squarebill cranks today. He said that color was working very well for him. Seeing the fish that people catch on my baits is as much fun to me as catching them myself...almost. :rolleyes:
