I love this reel
What are you looking for ?
I hope it gets put to good use
"Bushpig" with 12-1/2" skirts
That may or may not catch fish depending on the angler
Nothing too great, just some run of the mill average Joe type lure.
Do you guys think this will work?
Thanks guys, been a while since I have logged on, super busy!
"Bushpig" with 12 1/2" skirts
"Bushpig" with 12 1/2" skirts
It's a "Bushpig"

I wish I still had these 2
Keel weighted, 7.5 ounces
It is 15" O.A.L., Thanks Lou!
They look incredible
been doing quite a few with the "Fire Eyes", thanks Fat Cat
"Glumo" in color, thanks Jeff!
Nice wraps, they look good
eye bolts equal a disaster
Perhaps I should Bill, but I don't I fit the criteria any longer. It has become more than a hobby and there are rules here that need to be...
Yeah Scott! how have you been? You along with many have enjoyed the lures I have made for them and I enjoy that you enjoy, it is win win! I should...
Oh I see, well there is always Lure Crafters of the Seven Seas on FB I guess, there was a bunch of beautiful lures on this page for quite some...
Thanks Bill, that is called "Affraidium" on the left. The head is a standard "Bushpig". Why is this forum so dead? It used to be full of life,...
thanks a bunch for all the support in Seychelles Faizal!
Thanks a bunch buddy
Good luck Henny
well you guys are far too technical for me, I am old school
I like it and would love to try them for trout here in the winter, p/m me.
Looks like a great time with some cool mo fo's
silmar 41 at u.s. composites is a great entry level product that produces perfection
Typical fishing for DD
It's been a while
Way to go Massey
It takes a real asshat to call bs on someone that is legit, especially about a vessel running aground. You guys need to find something more...
That was a killer video!
Funny guys and their superstitions, old school story states that immigrants traveling by banana boats would get very sick and sometimes even die,...
Hey Kevin, I found another lure here I must have poured for Dr. Gauschwitz?, it has his name in it. I will save it for him until I hear from you.
Right on Steve
Way to go!
Looks like a damn good life to me

with purple inner
for a new member here
Bolsa chica did not have a jetty in the 60's, 70's, 80's, or 90's, LOL, but I have seen them caught at numerous inshore locations over the years
should fit the bill just fine.
The boat and crew are killer, that is why it gets crowded. Nice work in the zoo Spike.
Hey Fat Cat, Rod will be bringing this to you. Same mold as monica, just a little better lure, this is going to be the one Bill.
Thanks! and I may have been thinking about a whole bunch of things.LOL
This is an early season lure here, proven to work in the past.
about 14 to 15 inches O.A.L.
in an abortion type/ luminescent coloration
in my world
with some "Happy Guy" skirts.
One of the most productive colored lures I have sent to Cabo in recent years
Something outside of my normal box
sweet colors BP
Epic and proven, nice work BP!
Nice ones Steve
a couple for Ty down in Cabo
I have been pouring the "Monica" mold once in a while Bill, Rod Kubly asked if I could bust it out so I will make a new one for you too.
Jetted and Inverted Bill
this head is responsible for the #390 sword caught off of Cabo San Lucas last year.
come in 2 sizes
A few larger Duku's for Dave Wylie in Key West, FLA.
I know Chris and Jake, Joe will always remain a legend!
Looking really good Jim
This is a monumental lure and if it continues to sit idle and not get any comments it is a shame, you have put a lifetime of work into teaching...
Wow, those are some unique and fancy looking lures Rick!
Thanks Bill, these are a little larger than my normal stuff, he catches fish over #500 on a very regular basis so this is good.
For a great friend and captain, thanks for the photos AA!
I really like these inverts Steve.
Not on this forum Jim, LOL!!!! Maybe Larry needs to buy your book, LOL!!!!
Thanks guys, I hope Dale has some good luck with them.
He is getting really good Tim
I honestly wish I had some secrets, my group on FB tells all the secrets, with me, I am just an artist, they barely catch anything unless they are...
Spray clear acrylic over the paint, problem solved.
I can see the carnage now
any color you like, that is black and purple, LOL!!!
They look great Steve
Love that eye Frank, nice work as usual.
Only when I am in the mood. I am making some for Geoff Heldoorn and Bob Waters right now, I poured them, they just need shaping. Maybe we get on...
Glad to hear it Bill. One day a very big fish will find one attached to it's grill.
Congrats to Peter Mel!
should get the job done over in Kona.
with couple of pink drops of "AFFRAIDIUM" on the back
also takes 9 1/2" skirts
takes 9 1/2" skirts
That a boy Ty! Keep the dream alive!
Thanks Jack, working on the set of smaller ones to match today.
It's skirted in vinyl
new purple shell in this unit
over in Kona, good luck today Dale, even though you don't need it.
Very busy Bill, and I really don't see that changing soon. My other page on FB is going haywire for all the people involved. It's too bad this...
is this Blue "AFFRAIDIUM" "Baby Bushpig" by "Happy Ending Lures"
Yes it does..........
with 9 1/2" skirts
Thanks Bill, it is a really great piece to look at when it is in the right lighting.
This has been a very successful color over the last 8 years in Baja.
that will be going to Fla., these are jetted and inverted, and have a new material that has been named liquid "AFFRAIDIUM" coated over mirror.
not much out there better than that Frank, these are bad ass
with fire eyes
pretty cool color changes at different lighting angles.
Thanks Joe Thrasher for the perfect photo.
"Baby Bushpig" for your dining and dancing pleasure
A lil' something special
The suit you chose is what I am looking for, they are the best by far, hard time finding my size, thanks for the links!
I'll get my popcorn now, jeez, they are both great fish, one was caught by a set of guidelines. Who really gives a fuck?
It sure is
Take a look at lure crafters of the seven seas on FB, the format is strong and so are the themes. Most people enjoy it but there are always a few...
Thanks a bunch Mark!
Thanks Bill, Kelly , and Frank! just some basic lures but the results have been off the charts the last few months.
Here are a few out of a large batch headed east, not too special but different.
for the photos, I can not wait to see the rest!
for killing blackfin tuna off of Fla.
from Duane while he was doing a delivery last week.
Gotta agree with Brant, they look real fishy.
Oh I love this one by the way.
Another killer Jeff!
I was under the impression that lures are for teasing.LOL
Digging the black and blue one Jeremy.
He is very lucky........
You are "ON FIRE" right now Jeff, keep it up!
I really like the middle one.
Insane stuff buddy!
Your work is incredible Jeff
I have one skirt left that I found, I can get one together for you but you may have to pick it up in Cabo.
Me too, it has been 5 years since I have had a vacation, what a change from the 5 years before that when I was always on vacation. Work is good...
Thanks Bill, glad you approve! Wait until you see what comes out in January, it will be nuckin' futs!
Off to Florida with "James Brown and the Tapered Tubes"
I believe you have one of these FatCat
Thanks Bill, things are finally starting to smooth out in my world. Did you see Tim and Erin?
I want the next one David, for my collection. Fanfuckingtastic my friend!
They look incredible David! You know I made a handful of custom dichro panels for some inserts and then sold them to a jewelery maker. I will be...
for Brent Watson. I think she will deliver............
Oscar Cosio is dying to get this in his hands for the Bisbee, and he will, good luck brother!
Darrin Auger says this is money so I sent it to him.........
for the Cosio family
I thought so, at least in this color combo.
Thanks you guys, Hopefully he can keep the streak alive and bring home the bacon this year.
It was the Disco Ball but that name has been taken by Aloha, Eric is really cool so I figure he had it first, it is his.
Thanks for the photos Ty, don't pre-ejaculate, save a fatty for the Big Game.
custom mirrored insert from H.E.L.
Nice work as usual Jeff!
Nice one Frank
He is playing it by ear Bill
This was just a part of a quarter loin. This was the best tasting YFT I have ever eaten.
Nice work out there
Great work Joe
They look great
Another silly little lure for the ZG Invitational.
Congrats and keep me posted on your progress!
I am glad you like them Mike, C Bandit this year????
Open wide! Thanks Dust Devil
See you this evening buddy, I got some stuff from Melton for you from Jason to give out as well.
Dude you are damn good
The lures look fantastic Jeff, glad to see you are still at it full speed. Take care buddy, Mike.
fact dorado are from the same family
here are some of the lures that will be given away Sunday at the captains meeting.
Very nice Bill
Looks like you guys had a great time bring the boat up. Thank you, maybe Duane and I can get lucky in the Catalina Classic on it. Great report by...
Yeah but I'm not.
Hopefully Duane's eyes will be freaky superior in the marlin tourneys, that may help us. Nice report and fish, way to go.
Thanks Jesse and Vinnnnnnnnn
They are 10"
For my friend Teiki
for the MABT
Thanks guys, Teiki is going to love this thing. I just hope he can keep it away from the wahoo for a while.
Very cool, maybe the end of the season has something special in store for you.
They seem to add a lot of flash Bill, but they do not last forever. Ali, the proud owner of this site will be the recipient of this lure this...
This large "Deathtrap" is for a friend in Tahiti, I hope it works out well for him.
Thanks Buddy, after things slow down from the tourney trail and Bisbee's stuff, I will get some of these new ones together for you.
Yours has a solid yellow stripe as I recall. How has the season been for you Bill?
Sure Bill, I will try and scrounge up another set of skirts like that. This color was super popular this season.
I like this.
I want that hat! Great report Joel.
Thanks buddy, see you next week
for my buddy in Fla.
What a bunch of homos. LOL
Killer fishing year for you guys!
Nice work Duane!
Love that stage name! Nice fish.
Nice fish man!
By the time this is over they will all be gone.LOL
to add to the stack
Yeah Joe! Always getting the best shots.
Dude Kyle looks just like you Joe. And for the idiot cameltoe guy take a closer look it is the stitching creating that effect.
Looking really good Drake!!!!!
Nice! You have been killing em'!
Thank you for the report
At least you got out with TE and Hooops! Great stuff Spike!
Great job Joel
Those things are killer
Way to go Joe!
Thing is sick Joey, nice work!
Looking real good as usual Steve.
Very nice set-up. I have the 908mh, looks like it fits the bill well, Thanks.
I still have a big pile. They work great, this will too. I will see if I can arrange some sort of a trip for us to go testing.
That is super impressive Frank! By the way, the Fat Shad tears the face off of the calico, it is a perfect bait.
Great report Brant. What rod is paired up with the reel? Looks perfect!
Thanks for posting this Brant, seems like a cool idea for someone that is super creative. I know a few guys that could do pretty well in this contest.
Nice fish, and photo of my pal Tim.
Don't forget your chicken sandwich.
this will get them to chew
Yeah Bill, I will get one of these together for you. It is jetted and inverted, it is hard to see that in the photo.
Been on one trip and is in perfect condition-$175 picked up or plus shipping. They retail for over $300 + tax. P/M me for phone number.
I will see what I can do when I get home.
Mike will have new shit pronto, that is how he rolls.
for Dave Wylie. The top one is a typical bullet and the bottom head is known as "Hulz Duku", it was responsible for the slaying of 7 YFT from...
I have a bad ass penn but it is a straight butt. That can be changed too. I would let it go for a song also.
What? So sad, that really sucks. Condolences to the family.
Mixing it up are we?
Hell to the yes!
That is really a tough one, hang in there Charlie.
was Mark your roomie? LOL
Thanks O, I may be in touch.
You got it buddy. Tell Zach I said congrats and hello, he is a winner all the way around, you did good!
Do you know anyone headed down before the east cape bisbee and dodo shootout?
Translates to: The color of the color type of person. . . I Sa is the type of colors!
I don't know what the fuck that is supposed to mean but it...
Thanks Allan, just a different dress though, nothing really special, anyone can do this.
Needless to say if life permitted I would be all over this.
I use this same lure in my pattern for catching anything from bonito to marlin and everything between. A must in So. Cal!
Going to the vessel "Mr. Terrible" in Cabo San Lucas. This is the same head shape that Erik Petersen caught his #390 swordfish on, except this one...
a set of bullets headed to the east coast and baja
Pretty sure it is pink paua, very nice look none the less. Nice job.
I have 40 pieces still ready and 100+ that need polishing and skirting, how are things Bob?
fishing will be fine.
Best report ever
Thanks you guys
Thanks a bunch Bill, how is fishing going this season?
There is no way to go wrong there, I have to agree with Kelsey.
That was the trip I should have been on.
A few of many that will be in the captains goodie bags come tourney time!
Good luck in the Key West tourney Dave
I think Bob is the coolest dude around, I am not a shopping cart type of guy either so I get it. His stuff is great too. Glad you chose him to do...
Look great Graham
Looking good Frank, but what is new? They all have been looking that way!
The donkey sauce was running pretty thick. Great time as always! and you know this. Maybe we should all go fishing w/ officer Dave and bring Bob...
Congrats to Joe and Teddy! I think Gabe Heflin was there as well. Great job guys, what did she eat?
Great series for the Heat, congrats to them and Labron getting his first title of what I am sure will be several.
Looking pretty fancy senor'
are you on it today Joe?
Looks great Frank.
Nice report Joe!
Nice report Spike
Nice lines on that body!
Was he on board singing again Dave?
Thanks again Bud!
Damn that thing is killer!
Shit they look better than mine and I have been at it forever. LOL
excellent as always
Guess I missed it.LOL Way to go man!
Way to go Ryan!!!!!
They all look great IMO
I saw this elsewhere and it is fantastic. Nice work Graham.
Nice work, BD is lucky to have you.
I saw their cousin Stu Pidasso on a wave runner today.LOL
Always fun out there with you Joe. SCI is calling you know....
If there was ever anyone that could get a bite like this it is him too. He is one with the fish,LOL
Think again, that is Billy Miyagawa, the capt. of the vessel that is very well known."Gambler" and his dad owns Zucker lures. he is one of the...
It looks really cool Billy!
Better than most you see, I like them.
Oscar, Duane is coming with some stuff for you guys tomorrow. Sorry for the delay, take care brother!
Very nice as usual Allan! I tried to send you a message on FB but never was able to find you. Are we no longer friends? Seems odd but hey,...
When are we going again Joe? Nice one man.
Right on guys!
I counted 129
Way to go man!
Good seeing you out there bro!
Frank is the best
Tastes great that way!
There are no fish here but those lures will bring them. Fantastic set Allan! The marlin will hammer those 7" and the aku rockets will slay the...
This is what they say, I wish I would have been there.
Great work! Seen you on FB, see you around.
Happy birthday Allan
Sounds fun, I may be willing to participate.
you must be a honey badger.LOL
This is exciting!
5 minutes in the water, one marlin. Jetted "Baby Bushpig"
I use 3/16" but I am sure you could get a better opinion from one of the Hawaiian boys.
Leonero is in the East Cape, it is nice. Party=Cabo
Somewhere in the 35' range
The most fun you can have in the jungle! Great times once again Joe! Thank you for putting up with my stupid one liners and catch phrases all day.LOL
That thing is sick!
good job buddy
No, that was on the brilliant blue tapered tube. Thanks, I am pouring a whole batch of these next weekend.
For zero to low light conditions, this lure is now also in Kona with legendary tournament lure maker Scott Crampton. He figures this to be a game...
My condolences to the whole family
Hang in there my friend!
Thanks Steve M, Capt. G, Nervous, Allan, Joeship and all the rest of you. I did get a pm from Erik telling me he has more pictures but the tiki...
I really loved spending time talking and glassing in the bucket with him, he was always upbeat, even when he took me on a wild goose chase against...
Thank you guys for all of the positive commentary. Now I think they will spend more nights on the boat than at the Tiki Bar.LOL
He also has the state record albacore at #88 caught in the Catalina channel.
sounds great Steve!
Sadly enough for me, Ron actually was one of the older gentlemen that taught me how to run a harpoon operation. We spent the summer of 1997...
Unfortunately at this point the only story I have from Erik is that he was on a booze cruise with some buddies under a full moon, turned on the...
Only to the people that fish Baja and California. I find it quite surprising myself, due to the minimal response here to something monumental. But...
Congrats Allan, that is big.
No! He can't go down like that. Hang in there Michael.
Very close to this one, same shape slightly different color on the skirt.(Silver instead of yellow)
They were out of Cabo, I still am waiting for...
Yeah! My team on Mr.Terrible took down this sword of #390 at night trolling a "Brilliant Blue" Tapered Tube that I made him last month. The guys...
You got that right, On a "Happy Ending Lure"!!!!
Erik Peterson and crew roped this thing the night before last and called me in the morning to...
Amazing how that works
Here are a few cool ones, Thank You!
They look killer
Uh Oh, sombody needs to go fishing.
Since we refused to anchor we made a few friends on the drift.LOL and of course Spike is my friends Joe.
I was going to ask you Barrett if that was the Capt. hook in the first pictures. I fished that boat with Russell Barber as his mate, great times...
As great as this lure may seem there are many other lures that have proven themselves. especially in cabo. I suggest getting one from steve and...
I will check it out for you. I have a friend that still talks to him as far as I know.
Damn dude, that is a beast
Spike is tickling it's cornholio,LOL
Well after the recent reports of quality YT at the pile Spike got a brainstorm, call me and take an aluminum skiff down and get in the action....
They are pretty "Simple" lures if you ask me. Look what the other guys are doing these days, it is pretty impressive compared to this. Thanks for...
Nobody is lying to make friends, That thing looks lethal, and I like that!
Bottom, tops in my book
I really like this new stuff you are getting into Frank, this will be epic right here.
Killer man, way killer!
Looking as good as ever Allan! Keep this shit rolling!!!! Proud of you man, very proud.
That thing is cool
277/480 volt, you know the one.
Yeah I spoke with my friend and he was very happy. Thanks again Bill you rule. And run south a little further for a view of the picket fences. Ty...
tendonitis in the elbow forced me to do these left handed. The result is equal. I though ambidextrous meant you went both ways.LOL
will be en route to la paz this morning with H.E.L. in tow. Thanks again Joey, not only for running this stuff but for being a really good friend...
That one is nuckin' futs!
Super killer if you ask me, some of the finest ever posted on this board.
Sued for what Frank? it looks good and came from your own hands, what else matters? All this legal mumbo jumbo is BS, copyright your design if you...
Those look great Steve thanks for sharing.
Sweet one Dave
Very nice work as usual Frank!
And that is how it is meant to be done. I for one can not tell you how happy I am that the 2 of you pulled this off in such a stellar fashion....
That is a killer right there.
Very nice as usual, you make all look like mediocre artists Allan. Fine ass work you are putting out these days, you deserve all the success in...
yes they look fishy for sure
Sorry for the thread jack Nervous. I have a cupped mold or 3 around here and I love them in the spread.
Very cool Bill! What about the bigger ones in the batch of new stuff? Oh yeah, there is some other stuff for my friend in La Paz in there I think....
Love the color combo and the name of it. Great work. I know what you mean about pretty lures, some catch some don't. Mine get bit pretty regularly...
I knew you would say that Bill. You have seen me spend some time there and how happy I am, especially in Los Barriles. I do not want to die here.
Way to go Allan!
Like Chevy's!:rofl:I feel at least that old.
That is an incredible looking lure
Yeah Bill, you may see a little more of me than you want to also.LOL
I get messages every day telling me to come down and let the rat race go. I...
Very cool Dave. Everything but my molds and tools are going to be sold so I can move my operation to Cabo San Lucas and start over next year, I...
They are fantastic Allan, I am quite sure the fish will agree. Nice work once again to both of you for re-introducing something that should have...
lookng good pullin dirt
Great times were had on that boat. I will miss it.
Very cool frank, I hope it works with a minimum of effort expended.
Very cool Dave, I saw it on FB too I think.
Guess I missed it, oh well, it looked fun
They look great sam
Sick shot, here is another from the same area.
Very cool regardless. Put a piece of mirror under it and you will have magic.
Nice ones there
This is as true as it gets^
Fuck Fred that is gnarly, glad you are going to be o.k. though.
Is that some kind of barracuda? Killer looking fish, it even matches the color of the lure, I have a feeling Mr. Sato knew this would happen.
What is he after Moby Dick or something? That my friend is for sea monsters.
Damn good job Mark! I like the size of the tubes too.
Terry always looks like he rolled in a mud puddle. I gave him some fresh shirts so he could look clean but he didn't even use them.LOL
Cool, glad to see you are still at it! LOL
LOL, sounds pretty fun
Way to go John! Getting your season started is the best feeling, I hope you get a fatty that takes you to the knot!
Wow that is a fatty! Nice job Brian on that fish and Allan for providing the attractant.
Thanks you guys, just trying to keep up with you all, and that is not easy.
Gotta agree with Skipper, it looks fantastic Dave.
This is why you are the boss, all that brain!!!!
Really? That sucks he was really cool
Looking very sharp!
:rofl::rofl::rofl: very funny David Butler!!!!!
Thanks Bill, A friend of mine came by today and got some team lures, he tried to leave with this one too, funny guy!LOL I told him next batch he...
Shit Frank, you can come down and get all you need free of charge, it will take me 2 years to use all the ones you gave me already.LOL
Confidence in what you fish is what matters the most Big P, ask the fish they know.LOL
That looks good Frank, not that my opinion matters on this subject as I am no plastics wizard, but I am pretty sure I can catch on that.
Very creative my friend.
Looks great Brant
Five pack of strangers
A little off the beaten path, but it looks catchy to me.
Another month and you will surpass me with ease. You are doing great David, it shows in your work.
You are so smart Dean.
I feel sorry for the guy, seems as if he may have just been made an example of. Next time we fish Joe I vote to take a left. Fuck Laguna Beach and...
They are fantastic!
Right on! love the happiness
They are getting better and better David!
I would venture to say that more than 90% of the lures posted here are "Homemade".
Yeah Frank, I guess we better talk about some rigging for this.
Recon 804 looks nice
Brant is cool!
All I can say is wow
Sweet Bud! Das Cuda is in da house
Coming along just fine, hard to believe where you are since I saw you last. Great work buddy, keep it up!
The stuff looks incredible Jeff! But what is new.LOL
That is a set right there that can not be topped.
Do not order from Max Tangler
Between you and Jason nothing slides by. LOL Thanks
You told me to choose one and that is it. That is THE one actually, you will see.LOL I will make a quick change out and send a succubus. I have...
Very nice set!
That is very unique and cool, should kill it like the rest of the things you guys have done. Nice work.
Here are the majority of your lures Bill, missing is one Laker Girl and one more YFT pattern, just waiting for the skirts. Tell me what you...
Bubba Blades, sharp enough to cut Barrett's fro.LOL
I went with my suggestion based on what he already said was comparable. It's stand up Bill, any other ideas? I saw this rod a the Fred Hall show...
Rest in peace
Super seeker 6455xh sounds about right
Get em' done Frank, fish are hungry.
Perfect lure if you ask me
BD proves once again why it is #1 in the tangled web we weave!!!!!!
Ali, you are one stand up guy! You have even more of my respect than you already did and that was a lot!
Jamie was an employee, please do not throw this on him, it has nothing to do with him.
That was the place, he is closed down. 562-505-4809, call doug, seems people are looking for him.
Those are really nice!
When the boys get back from Panama I will have them bring you a few.
I'm not even playing, those things are deadly! That koa is incredible and the Blue will catch in every sea, what more could you ask for, well done.
Dude those lures are fucking Epic, you are rolling now.
Totally, thanks for such a big post, it should help not only explain a little history but answers a few questions for those that needed them...
I assume that would depend on the density of the material you pour. Some pros will come answer your questions eventually.
Hell yes they will! Nice job man.
Are you here for the feeding? It isn't until tomorrow. You should come. it's going to be a bloodbath.
:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:, I know that scene oh so well.
I am thinking about making one that is all clear green in honor of your favorite beverage.LOL
You too Allan. I was joking around about how fast it got buried under the rest of my nonsense.LOL
This thing will be in Kona BP and the next time you see it my guess is there will be some blue bitch attached to it.LOL
The guy that is getting...
Send me an E-Mail Bill, I have been crazy busy trying to get my other stuff happening. Are you coming up any time in the near future?
Wow, you must be a pro.LOL
I guess no body likes this one.LOL
Yes sir, it is
You know Allan, the good thing about mirror is how easily you can replicate it. I could make this head over and over and it always looks the same.
I love it when Mahi's eat 15" lures, they are usually the bulls I search far and wide for.
It's hard to make lures of that "Caliber" baby.
They must get slammmed! Nice work mister.
Yeah Craig! Fun afternoon yesterday!
This is going to get slammed in Kona this summer
A new sardine pattern that looks pretty attractive
This color is something I like to run in low light conditions
My version of what is known as the "Gay Bob" color pattern
Yours is one size smaller frank, this is a 15" lure. Thanks for the props!
I should have named it the Humpty, because it is like his dance. First it limps to the side like it's leg is broken, shakin' and twitchin', and...
These have been spoken for but there are Many more where they came from.
Here are a few more 15" Bushpigs
I made this for legendary tournament lure builder Scott Crampton, I am getting lucky and receiving a Crampton tube in return. Lucky me. Enjoy.
This is a head I shaped for a contest, one of a kind but I have a master to pour and intend to get this out there soon. I want to thank Steve...
Octahedron is way to big of a word for my pea sized brain.LOL Thanks Capt.G.
Fucking sweet Jeff!
4 1/2" skirts
A couple of simple but what have been,(at least for me) productive lures.
You will find whatever you are looking for here no doubt.
I feel you there Bill, these are special in so many ways.
Epic right there, would love to own them
Nice job Allan and Ken on the skirt job!
You are killing me Bud! LOL I sent 3 of them to Jamaica last year and I guess they got so stoned they never found their way home. Never heard from...
They look great!
Thanks Allan, you too. I am going to catch me another halibut for food. I got one pretty nice fish last weekend with old salt. Maybe he can keep...
Yeah Allan! I hope all is well out in the middle of the ocean, it should be, you are surrounded by fish!LOL Thank you for the comments and looking...
They are done as far as I know.
He was challenging big blue mama to a duel.LOL
No, it is a bill roper. There is a rope loop going down that pvc that you lasso and pull the bill...
I try to put some understanding on it but have found it is easier to just give them what they want. Green is my top color from here to Cabo san...
Dude are you going mad on me? Now I see where you have been, be careful Pancho this addiction is heavy!
Very well then.
Right on Frank, I look forward to hearing from you. Give me a ring on the weekend, I will be kicking like Bruce Lee.LOL
Thanks Bill, I like to see the other guys who post here not get bombarded by my nonsense, it makes it nice for the others. i am just following by...
Yeah he said fishing was slow, and life is boring. here is an example:
Thanks Mark! I have incredible results with that "Rasta Sardine", it is my favorite color to use in the eastern Pacific ocean.
I was bored so I poured.LOL
Nice report regardless Dave, I was with Mark Saturday when you pulled up. I agree on the T-sharks too.
They will crush it
Epic, I will be there tomorrow, hope it is still happening.
That's a hell of a batch Jeff, nice work.
Nice set buddy!
Looks great man.
Looks top notch Steve!
Great looking lure Jeff.
Jim Rizzuto has a great book
Great post gentlemen. We could never have a civilized conversation about this in Cali.LOL! You are a lot smarter than you are getting credit for....
That is a really good idea, should go very well with the quality of lures you create. Best of luck!
That is a score Rick.
Nice one, it is hard to get red that dark.
Looks great Steve
Very cool, bet it gets em'
Very nice gesture by all of you guys. you should post this over at the other place.
Cool Name, I like it at least.
Nice report Bill, Dave knows the spots man.
Just saw this, too bad. I filleted one yesterday afternoon.
I pour resin and wear a respirator. If you do not you are asking for some damage.
Surfboard foam insert surrounded by resin.
Super sweet Jeff, you should go to Lure Crafters of the Seven Seas on FB, we all live there now and that is where I will get you some exposure....
It is a fish of good fortune and should be taken in passage by rod and reel. There is NOTHING like getting one that is high and dry to eat, and...
You guys are just making them harder to catch with all this thinking.
Old Salt sent me a photo from the dock yesterday. Way to go Matt, that is a Trophy.
This proves once again that purple fever increases insanity.
Bud really does his homework here, it takes a life time to learn what he has in a few short years. I do know him personally and he is of genius...
Capt. G obviously turned me on to the fisting thing. We should make it a team effort!LOL
El Pinche! Long time brother! Glad to see you still lurking.
I really don't have anything to offer by way of deep droping.
I fish water...
If I don't get to go fly-fisting soon with that rod G made me I will loop. 3 trips to the Trinity got canceled and I missed some great steelhead...
Got the same problem Bud, the lenses are too far apart on some.
Very cool of you to share what you have learned Bud, you are a better man than me...
You would be hard pressed to find a cooler guy to go fishing with. Dean is the bomb.
I learned a lot from Ron, he fished a season on the Pez with me. Nice man.
Based on 2 waves Curren based on the session Coffin
Hey Jim, I understand where you are coming from. Have a great season.
You're so smart bud. Glad to see someone has been paying attention.
On a quality vs. price point of view it is hard to beat. Great for what your are doing and can have other uses. I own one and love it.
Thanks for taking the time to write that up Bud
It's a joke Howdy!LOL
Send Ben at accurate a p/m here on BD. I am sure he will discuss the way to get them during the day here.
Sounds like a lot of fun Paul. Maybe you should call Keith Poe.LOL
See you Weds. LOL.
nice report and conditions Jim
Just wanted to let some of the folks here at BD know, stop in and check out how many great...
Nice work guys
Nice haul Jamie
Those are really nice, Gary is a great guy. Have you tried that floating head he makes yet?
Yeah, Evan is now considered a pretty tough cookie in my book. Get well soon little buddy!
Hey Frank, how is the achilles?
I will be the first to say I have been making my lures with alternative metals for over 3 years now, they still catch full speed even though they...
You should contact the DAC Dave, they need people to speak all the time.
I am damn glad someone understands their rights and wants them stood by. That is what this country is supposed to be about.
You must be from Laguna.LOL JK
Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and I am one. LOL
That's funny. I did a whole set like that for the same reason. Those look real good too.
LMAO! that is so funny, thanks Gary I don't think I have ever seen this.
I already know that and so do all the others here, have a nice day.
Fuck yeah Garrett!
Out of control. one day the dumb fucks will get shot, I hope soon. I am totally done with authority after last month almost getting ran down in a...
Mexico wishes 5000 pesos was 2k. try $400-$450 depending on who you talk to.LOL
Great report and trip.
Great little piece of history Jim, Thanks.
That licks ass Mark
I agree, they have great products and customer service. They will resolve this issue no doubt.
He is talking about how much effort it takes to turn the handle not the freespool. Avets do the same thing.
As much as you know I love you Bud I hate you right now!LOL
Jitterbugs are great
Damn fine shapes right there.
Looks like a great day on the water with a good bud to me, way to go B!
Love this type of stuff Mark, Great work!
It may seem a little silly but this fish means more than any other fish I caught all year. Trophy Bass are a tough proposition.
Fished them that way most of my life.
Great report Ben
Right back atcha! Happy holidays to you and your Frank!
Sick one Garrett!
Not good news, or is it? I guess that remains to be seen.
Best in show
If you are there right now I think you are having a good time.
Excellent job! Done a few myself.
#4-#10 spinning rod
Merry Christmas to you and your family Kelly!
Re-skirt and use them, they are worth a hell of a lot more that way. They will catch WAY more fish than fishermen. JMO
I will be there in the a.m.! thanks
Damn fine set if I do say so myself. Love the insert too!
years ago I caught them in Dana Pt. harbor under the lights behind the boat, I have always been amazed at the way they look.
Sweet hats Steve!
Great report and day with the son, Happy B-Day also!
On it in the next 2 days, thanks for the great report B!
Pretty cool man.
Great reel, it would fit perfect on my new recon.
Good on you Spike! Wish I could have made that one w/ you but duty was calling. Next time...........
It is a suggestion to use those line classes. How you set your drag, well that is up to you.
Good luck Brandon!
Great fishing at the cougar pond this season B, I look forward to seeing you there as the season progresses.
It would be pretty hard to top that one, unless you are Steve Coggin or something.
Hey Cheney, you got me all fired up now I have to go test lures there tomorrow.
She swims there but remains angler elusive.LOL
There is a fish in the top 25 from LMV.
Nice report! LMV is fun.
Nice fish Brian!
Fucking incredible work Steve! Very impressive.
Funny you say that Joe as I was thinking the same thing.LOL Great fishing for some meat there that is for sure.
On another note, what year is the...
What Robert said!
It's about time.JK LOL. Looks real good, let's do this!
Yeah I know what you mean, I have one in the works that is very weedless. I don't think you could toss it straight in the jungle but it would...
#65 and not to be confused with S.C.I., that rig is all War Head slayer swim jigs. This one is meant for DVL useage.
Your rig is what prompted me to put that BP Fat Shad in the middle of the tripod. This is gonna be fun.
I was in the shop w/ a buddy of mine and we decided to try and throw something together we thought would work at DVL. Behold the first San...
way to go Joe!
Very windy early morning in south orange county
Nicest PO boxes of all time, did you make those too G? Pretty nice rod too.
I must have one!
Damn! Ceez es el suertudo!
Bill and Roxy must have been fun clients. Great fishing Jamie.
Are you sure it is not an over sized spot finned croaker.
Fuckin' incredible stuff, Ceez is lucky!
EPIC! that is the shit G!
Fuck me runnin' I found a spot for next weekend, I will be there tomorrow testing the others. Let's get it done.
Looks like a great family outing brother!
Frank you really are on to something here, I think, actually know, that death will occur with these beauties.
Nice one, love the colors. Your opinion seems very accurate to me.
The is a lot of side to side swing in the belly of this bait, that is what I like about it. You would not believe how it trolls either.
Excellent info Ben, thank you for taking the time to post this for the youngsters.
Very nice work, I am glad the 2 of you got together to make it happen. It was meant to be.
Nice report Julio!
Nice fish B!
Great report! Fishing was fantastic yesterday and it looks like you got the best of it! Congrats
Fishing was fantastic today! Went wfo right at the boat dock all through lunch. I ended with 47.
I will be catching WSB in my front yard so I could not really care less what any of you think. They have a quota and it will be filled in the next...
That is just super Steve!
Not much you can say but the goods keep coming, I am proud to be part of the testing crew Frank.
It was really fun, introduce yourself next time Max, I had no idea you were the one taking pictures.
We all were very impressed tonight by this bait at Maximum Angler. Excellent job my friend!
Unreal rod Brent! Nice job!
WOW! Nice work G that looks great. Missed your call it looks like too.
Damn, you are killing me.
That batch is insane! You are driving me insane! Let's go fishing!
Some very nice baits all down the line there, they have worked well for me and others I have given them to. Frank, you are really on to something...
Seen a couple even smaller. My buddy has a 2-8 trout rod that is only 5'
Did it a few times but twins is much better. We broke down off of tosca a few years back and had to get towed in by a 60' hat named "Cover Girl",...
I know exactly what to do with that! Nice job Frank!
Wise choice on going to the movie next Friday, should be fun.
I know exactly where that is Fred.LOL Nice work there. I have to go by and take a picture of one I did about 12 years ago now.
Am I still allowed in the shop?LOL
That really sucks! I grew up going to that store for drag washers and blanks.Sad day in the LBC when it is gone.
Nice report Art, glad you got em'!
On what boat?LOL
Best of luck Oscar! Things have a way of working out and I am sure they will for you.
800M with a tn30 or tn40. #65 to #30 or #40 works fine.
hot damn! yooz on fire boy!
Damn Spike, you are a sheepherder.
You were the first person mentioned upon the landing of that beast.:rofl:
I really like the way you handled the fish before releasing it. People should take notes on the lipping of this fish it is a great example.
You must have had to look at the pictures to remember all that action.LOL
That was, the greatest unassisted backlash of all time! Thanks again...
Show us a photo!
Sounds like a good time to me. Nice tacos!
1/2 oz. egg, a hook, and #50 flouro. We used them for hoochies at the east cape, they work just fine.
I have about 3 of those. Would love more if they are easily available.
Somebody is gonna get lucky.
Insane! call me tonight so we can figure out the plan. It started to bite pretty good again at the island. I love the one on top.
Fantastic work G! Frank, I try to breathe resin fumes daily to reduce pain.LOL
Part of the reason for the length being shorter is you hold your tip down most of the time on the retrieve.
I believe it will work. You should send Tsutomu a PM, he is a master at it.
Just got the lightest one they make and it has way more balls than it is rated for. Thumbs up all the way!
I picked up another Phenix for Barrett and other smaller bodies of water too. I am going to donate the drop shot rod you loved so much to you so...
Looks like I am going to be busy throwing the goods. Where does your brain get all these ideas?
Nice work gentlemen!
Looks nice Joe, way to go getting Rob to keep his shirt on.LOL
Of course I fell asleep on the couch w/out calling you Frank. Talk to you today, I am around all afternoon.
I was expecting to see a bunch of half naked women.
I would be more than happy to send you a few to try Jim.
Talk to you a little later this evening, we have a few things to talk about.
Franks new fat shad is such a perfect bait I figured I would match them up with the greatest leadheads of all time. Here are some that will be...
You are all gay fags.LOL
Andrew was ripping 6 years ago. We used to watch his heats when we were still surfing in the NSSA as old men. Kid kills it!
Damn! Great work by the 2 of you, nice job guys.
I love the Laker girl. It is really popular in central America. No problem on the bleeder, got that skirt right here. Laker girl with an all...
Her name is Opah and I have her picture on my workshop wall.LOL
Love the mods to the slug! Boy you've been busy!
So INCREDIBLE Steve! Epic as usual though.
No way! You payed for the last set.LOL
I will try to get these together for you in; Guacamaya, BLK/PURP, and Petrolero.
If there is any other...
I will make one up special just for you Bill! I have a feeling this one is going to do some damage in the tourneys THIS year.LOL
That thing is incredible!
X2 the vinyl looks great.
That is some nice pussy! I will be fishing that bait this season a bit too.
Oh it is on! That is so sick! I hope you made the sweet spot a little thicker than the last one I shaped.LOL
We need to get out and test right...
That really sucks Bill. I am barely above poverty at this point but keeping a positive outlook and I just keep grinding away at it. Some...
That's cool man!
How sad:( did you finally sell the boat?
Wish it had panned out for you spike. As you know my grandfather ran 2nd captain on the Admiral for many years and I had the chance to fish up...
Way to go Jamie!
Yeah you are right.
An IGFA record is the only "World" record period, other than that the title should be; World record SIZE halibut. But I guess I am as ignorant as...
Some intelligence on this page but a lot of ignorance as well.
Plain and simple rules are rules for an IGFA WR. I have 6 denials and still play...
It is all about making the right insert and hook on this one Frank, I will give any insight I can. Back to the drawing board...............
Thank you sir for the fine compliments.
The color of the inside skirt is orange, yellow, and white.
Yeah, I just started prepping mirror to make a set of them. Alan will get a very special one, similar to yours!
I have the crucial and the 807ml, I never fish the crucial any more.
I love feedback, way to go Frank!
I checked and yes I have conformation, he is soiled.
Very, very, nice work!
Way to get the party started G
Way to look outside the box as usual.
When he sees the glow in the dark eyes in the brilliant blue one he will soil himself.
That is a good question. Matt is going down with his wife from what I understand but I doubt he will be doing any fishing. I really have not...
Showed off your baits today Frank, the boys are impressed and interested!
Good for you David, you are the man.
Thanks Ron! Someone is really fortunate to be getting these for Mexico, that is all there is to say about that.
Great write up Erik!
"Bushpig", "Tapered Tube", and an inverted "Disco Ball" for your dining and dancing pleasure.
#200 on #100 seems like the intelligent choice. Though both are very tough propositions.
Das Cuda is in my rack still waiting for finishing. I think I may just do it this morning! Thanks Bud!, Call me when you will be on land for a few...
Ron, your work is outstanding.
Excellent in my opinion. You will find that opinions vary on lure weight too.
This one had been sitting for 2 years so I hit it with some love and boom!
Glitter glue over full mirrored panels.
Condolences to his family
I could not agree more
Nice report, Thanks!
After several discussions yesterday I came up with the same conclusion.
I really like the inverted, jetted, tube. I have a few more that will be finished soon, stay tuned for that brother Allan!
What a deal! What will you do without them though?LOL
Nice photos, love the A&G special!
I will be participating this year
Another project that had been sitting that I decided needed to be finished, enjoy!
I think I am going, are you?
Here is a little gift for my buddy Frank because he is the greatest, enjoy pal!
It is called "El Magico"
Not likely Steve
Me either, I like the ice blue bushpig very much though.
I will bow for the master. These are a perfect example of why you are the man Steve.
Look what else magically appeared........
I hid that thing in my drawer for you the first time you mentioned it. LOL
We will get together really soon!
Do that Jason, I hope all is well and I look forward to seeing you soon.
See you there.
Come on brother Allan! You are right there with the greatest of all time like Coggins, Tsutomu, Polu Kai, Joe Yee, Etc....., I am just a mediocre...
no way, really? that sucks, hope everyone is o.k.
