    Hello gang been sometime since I posted anything. But got on some new carving the other day. Here are the first of the three new carving that just came to life this evening. I really got a good feeling these will get some attention. I have been trying to taking a little extra time on the details on the baits and am pretty happy the way these turned out. Let me know what you think. The other two baits will soon follow. I got some work ahead of me to make a couple new lead hook inserts for the two smaller baits. I will try to shoot a little video to show you the swimming action of the larger lure. It's size is 7 and 3/4 inches. Its am oddball size for a reason so it can be different than any bait out there also I am applying lessons learned from the last couple of trips having a few fish short bite my larger baits. Here are a few pictures of the new baits. Stay tuned in for the completion of the other two baits. Till next time gang.

    Capo thanks bro for the nice comment on the baits. And I did find the little bait you gave me. I will try to give it a silicone bait this week and shoot up some finished pours. Pretty soon we will need to go try these out on some checkers.

    AWESOME Job Bruddah Frank! I think you should repost the thread and video you did a while back, of these swimmers doing the breast stroke in the pool! That was a great video that shows the lifelike movements of your swim baits!

    I think the next time you hear from me, it will be from the "808" Aloha Brah, thanks for trying to help me relocate to Oregon but, Hawaii has already made the offer to my wife and she has accepted!

    Brah thats good news. Go with the flow brah and if it is home where the lord places you than it is a plus. You mentioned something about not learning and did not have enough time away from home maybe to hash out a few things. But let me tell you brah the time you were away from home you have learned plenty. These trails that the lord puts us though can only make us stronger. He does these things to us for his own reasons. Maybe its to keep us in check. You stay strong in your faith and always keep that positive attitude and the lord will continue blessing you and your ohana. Now I am going to have to save up to come seeya in Hawaii and do some fishing. I am yet to catch a fish on your wonderful gems and need a picture for the album and some time away from Da mainland will do me and Debbie some good. You take care brah and God Bless. Tell sistah Gail that you guys are always in my prayers.

    Thank you John the baits are getting better looking with time. Now a few of these poured up in some saltwater colors and it is going to be game on!! I can't wait to chuck a few of these out on the saltwater critters. We will see how long they last after being chewed up with fish with teeth. I am also trying out some harder plastic to make them more durable. Thanks again John for the nice compliment on my baits. Wait to you see the next one. It also is loaded with details and will be completed hopefully by the end of the week.

    Nice work !

    Whats the trick to pour plastic so evenly. Haven't done much plastic stuff except for doing some simple scampi pours from recycled plastic. I ended up burning most of it up...even with the microwave they got overcooked.

    My extra room is open as of today, fish are starting to bite now that the water is warming back up. I will figure it out. By the way I will have to post a photo of your baits on the new warheads, they look sick!

    Lambert the key is to keep messing around with the plastic until you get a right constancy. I use jig plastic for all of my baits. Your going to find out that the more heat you apply the darker the colors will come out. The key for doing light colors will be to pour these first. If you reheat the light colors they will change. I have been messing around with heat stabilizers, thinners, hardeners, I quess its like everything else practice, practice, practice,

    yes, it aint that easy to pour plastic. takes some
    skill, mechanical aptitude and a lot of practice.
