JX Raptor 100%
Bishop Creek Logdge! Want to catch and have a good time head up there. Many options to fish . I prefer the the creek and intake 2.

If you wanted to fish a Big Hammer weedless you can slit the belly and use a 8/0 Trokar or owner beast hook.
Big baits BIG fish!! way to go guys!

Thank you BP! I will pour me up some. Your bumble bee color is black, yellow, clear belly with silver? You do the tail with clear as well or black?

Bishop creek or Rush creek in the June loop.
Looking good Cesar! This hobby is addictive and rewarding. Best of luck on your future projects.
Slow & low Matt. For some reason I just couldn't heat the plastisol slow enough in the microwave. Too hot to quick gives it bubbles. So I got my...
Thanks for the compliment on my pours. The more I do it the better they get. I finally found a way for me to get that nice clear with out bubbles!...
Out of the 3 brands I have played with (Lure Craft, MF, & Bears) I found the #548 from Lure Craft to be my go to. It is a 60/40 split of their...

The only local place I know of is Silpak, in N Hollywood. But the last 2 projects I ordered online from Allumilite. The High Strength 2 is what...
Really nice smooth transitions. Inspired! Get well soon BP!
one trick that helped me is, I sculpt on a pyrex oven safe dish. So when I have it where I like it I just pop it in the oven.
Its funny cause I have had good luck trolling that lake. FIRE TIGER kills it with a 2 oz Keel weight. Try it.
Hell ya! That's pretty sweet right there!
Looking really good BP!
Yes! Just tried their RTV. Worked very good and seemed to get a smoother mold.
Thanks for the encouragement BP! It's funny how this goes in waves. I'm totally pumped about making baits again. Guess its that time of year.
Looks good! Get that bad boy as smooth as you can before molding. Post some pic's of your process.
Have not made anything in a while. Been getting inspired everytime I see someone post. So I did a simple creature & 5" swim bait. Also tried some...
I have seen guys do it on a seado! Barge it, dont be scared!
The Hero2 is more than enough for fishing needs. I have heard that the Hero3 is awesome and is much better quality but they sacrificed battery...
That would be dope in a Rainbow Trout pattern.
Ussually the RTV silicone molds are what they call "open pour". You just pour from a messuring cup. Go on youtube and search "open pour swim...
I personally didn't like the 500. it was to stiff and didn't pour as good as the softer products. I have found a 50/50 blend of the 500 and the...
I have fished on the Die Hard. Had a very good trip! I am in town now and will be boarding the Start Me Up early action trip tomorrow. I have...
Support your local tackle shop. But ebay can be a place to look.
Bob Sands Knott works best for me.
Life time warranty. I think Shamano is in Irvine. Take it there.
Nice Catch! is this the normal action for Febuary? I will be in town next week and want to fish.
That is going to slay em! Very nice attention to detail.
I have found Sculpty Clay to work the best for me.
Frank is the man! He helped me get started in this hobby. Can't wait to see these poured.
Looks SICK BP! Keep up the good work!
I Really enjoy the SX. Really packs a punch for a small reel. Also SX= American made!
WOW! Looks fierce! Way to go BP!
Was it used to catch those calicoes? Give you $60 for it.
Clean looking boat. How many hours on that FORCE?
Finished up a new swimbait, from the clay to the plastic. It's 6" with a slim profile. No feild testing yet but the action in the pool is sick!...
Looking for areas in or around Marina Del Rey to fish from shore, rocks, or docs. Work has been slow and im very close to this area. Any info will...
There he is! Looks clean Bro, miss your post and projects. TAke care Frank.

Thats cool man! Those kids will remember that forever!

Cork puppy or cord wrap a section.
www.lurecraft.com Also i see you live in Whittier. I think Sav on Tackle sell supplies for this.
Dick Shear is good, but expensive! Boats Plus i have used in the past for my River ski boats. good crew over there and little more reasonable on...
Thanks for all the positive feed back. I have to thank BIG Pancho and Capt. G. Reading their post gave me great information. This was a 4" mold...
Well for several months i have had a interest in pouring my own swim baits. After reading through many post on this fourm and watching several...
whats the cost and where is the head count at?
For me, Nuclear chicken jerk shad is very productive at the wall. Match it up with a Owner Sled Head and it will be completely weedless.
I beg to differ. I think it makes you more of a fisherman, to trick a fish into eating something fake. I'd rather trick them than feed them!
Picked up "DA Bug" to match up with some WAR Swim jigs. Man what a great combo! Also Picked some of the new jerk shad from MC. Pearl and MC really...
Great Video! Cute shirt to!!
my favorite go to is a O.C rods Kaiuli 80 JL 15-40# matched with a Avet SX. But if the house was on fire i would grab my two Trulines that Grandpa...
In my opinion color makes no difference. It's the top shot of floural that counts.
PM replied. Good luck and tight lines!
Wide open bite on the yellow fin! Saturday A.M. first jig strike was at 10:30 a.m. we fished that school for 2 1/2 hours. boated 155 fish!! Strike...
Just fished the shit out of my SX with spectra on it! 30# leader tied with a BOB SANDS knott. no problems at all'
Very interseted! just not going to around until Monday. If you still have it i might just take it off your hands. Where in S.F.S are you?
Very good boat and crew! Captain Mikey Fishes hard. A group i go with do a 2.5 with them every year. We leave this Friday, Hope they stick around....
Where a majority of the fish caught on live bait? Any one tossing iron?
When i went down last year it was a 16 hour boat ride.
Nice catch! About two Fridays ago my buddy 247 caught a short white C bass at the wall.
X 2!! "Getter Done!"
Holy Moley!! That thing is huge!! Nice report.
Ask the 39 other people that were robbed. Ran out of fuel and engine sucked air. Not very good for deisel engines. Had to get 200 gallons from the...
Or run his boat out of gas and take your money! Then offer you $50 off a futre trip, o wait it's really $25 off of 2 trips. The crew is great!
That outfit should be fine. I found that giving your bait a little action gets more attention then just letting it sit there. Espeacily if you...
So what do all of you have to say about the hundreads of bass being killed daily by the sport boats? really curious, because it's always the guy...
Have not been but heard LAke Hemet is anice local area.
Nice catch! I got to get my ass out there.

Great boat, young captian that likes to find fish, good deck hands. Went on a 2.5 day last August. Steamed all the way down to San Martin. The...
The SX is a fine reel. One opininon i have is get the SX MC Thing cast like a dream.
X2 ,great stick. I have a SX on mine, Which is pretty much the same as a MXJ.
Nice! What did that weigh?
Very cool! I fished that red slide Friday night, It was a hot area.
Go hard or go home! J/k, all of the above is good advice. Drift the out side wall it's not bad. Throw some swim baits or jerk shads pull calicos...
I agree. we had some hot little flurries Right between 5:30 and 7:45 p.m. When the sun set it slowed down but still fish being caught.
WOW! quality bass guys. Thanks for the report.
Hit the wall with 247 yesterday evening. Not a bad night, 26 fish on the boat. All caught and released. The Berkley shrimp and shads were hitting...

Thanks guys! I will try a few things and see how it goes. Big fan of the Uni-Butter aswell.
Going camping this weekend at Doheny State Beach. Any one out there know of any good spots to surf fish? Also any tips and rig advise would be...
Thanks for all the options guys!I have been leaning twords Calstar.
I wanted to get some advice on a good all around rod to match up with a Avet SX. I generally fish Catalina, Sanclemente Islands and local waters....
I never used it, but i saw first hand, Uni butter kill it. A guy next to me was killing the Callicos with that stuff. One that worked well for me...
FISH WORKS - SO DO WORK SON
FISH WORKS- BECAUSE SHE DON'T
FISH WORKS- THE NEXT BEST THING TO BEING NAKED
This is the best version of Skulls! Who is it by??
Hey waundering Blues, looks like a great trip!
I'm leaving for that island Friday. What were they biting on?? Irons?? Squid?
The only thing better than fishing is catching them.
