It's Whittler's Fault

Recommended Posts

I couldn't help myself after looking at and fishing his ultralight baits, so I've started making some myself. :D

Here's my first ultralight crankbait. Roughly 1/8oz, and 1 3/4" overall. There's a quarter in the pic with the bait for size reference.

It's not as small as Whittler's ultralights, but I'm getting there. ;)

Here's another small bait, although it's not as small as the ultralight above. 2" body length, 3/8oz.

The rest of these are much larger than either of the two baits above. The next two baits are both 2 7/8" without the bills or tail hook hangers, and both weigh 3/4oz.

Awesome as always. The fourth one down's paint is really nice. Looks like you busted some tricks out of your sleeve on that. Does it take long to make these or you just bustin em out quick now?

Thanks guys. B)

lip ripson, it takes me several days to finish a single lure due to dry times. However, I practically always topcoat baits in batches, so the baits in one batch may have been built at different times but finished at the same time. For example, the foiled bait above was started quite a while back but I just now got around to finishing it. I waited until I had enough baits so I could epoxy them all at once in order to reduce the number of times I have to mix epoxy.

Whittler, I couldn't have gotten to where I am now if it hadn't been for your help.

Those are some FANTASTIC little cranks, Ben! Love your finish work.

I can attest to how well Whittler's little cranks work on bass of all kinds, and I'm sure yours are gonna kill as well!

BTW....diggin' your photos!
