    Custom jigs

    I made some jigs into under spinners I was wondering if there was a rule of thumb if you use rubber skirts hair or plastic or does anything go.
  2. Has anyone used those Rural King brand batteries there on sale at a good price just wondering if anybody has used one.
  3. I went Rural King today looked at those batteries today. 1 year warranty I'll pass. They are Exide batteries.

    Jig pouring

    That's why I never tried to sell them to make money, the amount of labor to make a batch jigs does not equate to what people are willing to pay.

    Jig pouring

    Lucky for me I'm a plumber I still have 5 pound ingots and scrap lead back when you pour lead into cast iron flanges what we didn't use the foreman didn't want the boss to see the lead laying around I'll take it. So as far were to get lead I don't know. I have never tried to make money pouring jigs or plastic worms but the thing is that the world is open to what you can think of. It's a pretty cool feeling when you catch a fish on something you made.

    A lot of good information here. So here's my take the minnow baits I have got pretty decent at what I found is twitching the rod tip giving the bait action and the speed of the retrieve and then combine that into a rhythm it will help pay attention to strikes that's your key.

    Spitfire Prop

    I have the Tracker 16 v guide with walk thru windshield adds a lot of weight but sure is nice when the air is cool. Also had a custom Bimi top put on I'm sure that doesn't help top speed but it's nice to have shade in the summer.

    Spitfire Prop

    If you have a semi v hull your probably close being max out on speed. My v hull what mercury says is 35 mph at 5400 rpm sometimes with wind and current I'm lucky if I can get 5200 rpm out of the motor. The one thing about prop is the way the boat handles. The speed on my boat was 26-27 now 30 on smooth water 32. The guy who use to own Lenoir City Marine which was tracker marine he always told me there's more in the motor I don't if I have enough hours on it yet. It does what i want to do.

    Spitfire Prop

    Yeah I been using one on my 60 Merc. The prop does everything as advertised it comes out of the hole good gets on plane much quicker than before. I picked up about 4-5 miles per hour only because I have a v hull with a windshield and I think that holds it back. The best part is the prop stuck to the water the back end don't wash out no more and the exhaust is a little longer than stock and gives the engine a little growl. I have had the prop on my boat for several years and I am very happy with it.

    Metal blade vibe lures

    Has anyone used those metal blade vibe lures. I tied line directly to the body that didn't work. I put a split ring on one but the weather came in I couldn't get back out to try it. I'm just checking to see if there is a trick to making them swim right.

    Createx Paint

    Createx airbrush paint I don't know if any body paints any lures out there but you don't have only use an airbrush technique with this paint you can brush it on too. It goes on real well clean up takes a couple of seconds. I been using it to highlight some plain spots on some my crankbaits.
  18. I have got a small piece of aluminum and took a metal cutting bit and cut a slot in the metal enough to get lead around a hook. It works pretty good now on the downside this is not a pretty looking job but I got a weighted hook at a good price. I got one tied on my rod we see how this works tomorrow.
