Hello Texas Anglers

It has passed long toime singe my last visit in th Forum. I hope all of you are having excellent fishing days and are doing well... This time I want to share my last How To Do video where I did the Protoype of my last homemade lures.


My new Attila Fat Minnow “S” …. “S” because it is sinking action… is a lure made from Balsa wood and I thought to designed it with the purpose for spinning fishing in salt or freshwater, and casting from shore or from a boat. In particular, I want to use it to catch some Flounders and Corvinas (Weakfish)from the sea shore.


This first prototype is a sinking one, but also, I am doing Suspending and Floating versions… it will depend on fishing conditions and kind of fish that I’m looking for.

On the other hand, this video is the part one of two videos. In Part 1,this one, I do a quick summary of main steps that I followed to do this Balsa lure … Here is the list of materials and tools I used:

Materials:
- 4mm x 20mm x 120mm Balsa wood
- 1mm diameter x 210mm Stainless Steel wire
- 2.5mm x 30mm Diameter Lead wire
- Epoxy Resine
- Super Glue
- Wood Cement
- ¼” Balls bearing (stainless)
- 5mm Strong Magnet
- 60mm Strip Aluminium (made from soda cans)
- 2mm Transparent Polycarbonate for lips

Tools:
- Cutter
- Steel ruler, Vernier Caliper
- Sand paper # 180, 200, 400
- Limes
- Hacksaw, Fine saw
- Drill
- Vise
- Pliers

After this first introduction video, a second one will come as Part 2 where I’m going to show the finishing summary: Aerograph painting, holograms, eyes, gills, etc….

In parallel I am preparing and editing a four chapters series with all the details in each step.

I hope you like this video, thank you for watching and please give me your comments. Whoever wants please give a LIKE after watching the video.

Have a safe fishing…


Here is the Youtube link to see how to do the prototype:

I enjoyed watching the process. You should have the moderators put this in the Lure Making Section.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Donald

Thanks for your comment... I really do not know how to move the post to Lure Making.

On the other hand, I would like to know whether anyone in the forum has made this kind of Balsa lures before in order to learn about their work. In case someone in the Forum knows it,please let me know... Thanks
