    im new to this website and im a college student in south florida. i really want to get into making my own lures and have tried doing all the research i can on how to build the heads, skirts etc..
    i havent found a DEFINITIVE answer yet and im still seeking help from somebody who actually knows what they are doing and can steer me down the right path.
    i have emailed jim rizzuto about trying to get a copy of his lure making 101/102 book but his email said he is not available this week :imdumb:
    if anybody can help me and give me any kind of advice i would appreciate it greatly!
    thank you very much! kyle

    There are many talented lure makers on this site that will gladly share tips on lure building. My advice to you is start by reading the archived threads in this section and get the lure making book. This will get you started.

    Exactly AND make sure you are prepared to spend lots of cash doing this especially in the early stage when you are in your trial and error portion of lure making.

    Ok lets start here.. What are you planning on doing? Inshore lures offshore lures, ect.. Give us an idea where your mind and heart are at and that will help us give you a run down on cost, materials, how to go about starting with those things.

    Big fish or little fish?

    Like the guys said above....you can look back at past posts and see who has done what and the advice, suggestions and insight given by others on this forum. They will steer you in the direction you want to go with colors, designs, shapes, etc. Keep in mind ALOT of time goes into making these things and everyone has their own techniques and styles so no one is going to bombard you with all the knowledge you need. Start with clear resin and brass tubes....then post pics and you will get responses on which direction to go. There is alot to think of like space, safety, budget, R & D. You'll figure it out....

    Here's what u will need RTV, resin and hardener, sand paper different grits if u can get a lathe all the better, lead for inserts, eye stickers, 1/8-3/4 brass tube inserts, skirts, reflection tape. That is a good start list price it out and see where you are at a guess would be over 500 without the lathe.

    Buy small and refill fast just buy an adequate amount of everything listed and try and perfect it, you can find lure making tips on Youtube and google the shit out of every question you have. I had guys like Miguel (el capo) teach me the other more important things along the way, and trust me i picked it up pretty fast, and changed things around a bit moving away from traditional lure making to something of my own. Dont be afraid to fuck up alot of my fuck ups gave me better ideas for future lures.
