Carving lures


Recommended Posts

has anyone else out there tryed carving their own lures? I know alot of people modify or alter spinners and rapalas but I've been able to find very little on the web about making/carving your own plugs and jerkbaits. Does anyone know of any good websites or resources for info on this seldom practiced craft?

I started to carve lures a week ago, it's rally fun when you are a bored high school kid who has nothing to do but fish and sleep. I mostly carve poppers, everything else is too hard.

I started carving stick baits a year ago along with airbrushing. Very addicting hobby. Do a web search on tacklemaking. You'll find a wealth of imformation on how to's, tip and tricks.
Good luck and have fun. smile.gif

If you are going to get into luremaking one tool that is a vital nesessity is a dremel or dremel-like tool. They are great for sanding carving and drilling. You might want to look into getting one.

My neighbor makes his own muskie lures, some jokes (little poodles the size of a softball) & some that have seen plenty of teeth. His favorite is a dying sunfish. It's flat and has a longitudinal vent so that when he jerks it it dives a little down sideways and flutters back up - he said he's on his 6th one.
