Nice baits. How are you securing your eyes on the baits? I always have to redip the head in clear plastisol to keep them from falling out.

I've been using super glue. I only had issues with them coming off when skipping them. I'm hoping on this one I drilled the eye sockets deep enough that won't happen

You can also purchase buttons with the peg on the back. Drill a hole for the peg in your mold, unless it is just the thin plastic molds, and install the buttons. This will give you the eye sockets when they come out of the mold.

I drill the eye sockets into the master before molding with a forstners bit I think it's called. Gives you a flat hole

I guess I don't understand how that works. If you drill a concave in the mold wouldn't you have a protruding eye of plastic when you take it out of the mold?

He is calling the lure that he used to cast the mold with his "master".

Forstner bit would make those eyes clean and flat.
