A crayfish bait with articulating tail. I (hopefully ) curls upon retrieval. I haven't tried it yet.

This social distancing thing has kept me in the shop lately... hence the series of lures I am posting. Got to do something.

I saw a video on making a popper. I've never made one and actually never used one. I've got one now... The video of it's making is below.

Not sure how well it will function, but I made my 6 year old a mini bladed jig. It's a 1/0 hook on a 1/8oz head and micro blade. Color scheme is one of my most popular and blue is his favorite color so that part was easy. Next to one of my standard 3/8oz baits for scale.

Well thank you. I just post stuff because i'm weird that way I enjoy the tech, and it's something to do. I think I'll make a rod rack for the house tomorrow.

Today I went out into the shop and put together a simple rod rack for the house. Three pieces of wood and a few screws

You have all the cool toys!  I like the hidden countersunk mounting screws on the stabilizer.  The pocket holes are a nice touch - hidden and strong!

Yes. The pocket hole jig is a nice handy way to cheat in woodworking.

Looks like you've got a hellava start. Those are nice paint jobs. I've been making lures a short time too. As you get used to the airbrush it does get easier too. Every time I pull back on the trigger I still wonder what damage I'll do and how good it will come out. Keep it up and make sure we get to see the future work. Thnx for posting.

Nice job!  Something like this would be conducive to video. I'll bet nearly everyone here would take a look at the process if someone made one. If you ever do another on consider that. I'd certainly watch.

Decided to try my hand on some wooden baits since ive made more jigs and spinnerbaits than i have time to fish currently. Here are a few of my first attempts. The carving part has been the easiest part for me. Definitely have some work to do figuring out lure placement. Also my first attempts with an airbrush so im nowhere near where i want to be on that front either.

A three part video

1. I finish a started two weeks ago segmented swimbait, 2. Repair a broken bill, 3. reposition a line tie to see if action improves on another bait, oh and I guess 4. I clean the shop.
