Spent a few hours each of the last few days messing with some tackle building materials. Had a bunch of crankbait blanks I have had for a couple of years I needed to paint. Had not fired up airbrush in over a year so I kept it simple. Used a pearl white lightly then masked each eyes with a light coat of black pearl. Simple but I love this pattern.

Built up a dozen or so flipping jigs in a color I started tying last year. Catches fish everywhere. Had not powder painted anything in months as well so it was nice to get back in the flow.

Last but not least I hand injected up a mess of craws for Texas rigs and jig trailers. Its a new mold that seems to really catch fish. Also poured a few swimbaits mostly to use as bladed jig trailers. Made the 5" for the 3/4, 1oz, 1 1/4 and 1 1/2oz bladed jigs. One is abasic shad pattern and the other is my version of sun perch that matches the old Phenix bait color. Also did a few in the new 5" belly weighted swimbait mold.

Gonna test them all out tomorrow with a couple of buddies.

Also gotta give a big thanks to Bryan for offering up a corner of his shop. Also for the great chili his wife made. Fun day hanging out at his place. Good people and a great friend. He is on here but does not post much.

Nice :cheers Looks like rage craw. Do they stand up like Xcite? Cranks look good too. I like baits like I like clothes, plain, not real gaudy.

They float up but do not compare to Lloyd ' s baits at all. His stuff is top quality. Makes mine look like [censored].

It's a 706 Craw mold.

Where do you get the eyes for the swimbaits. On some of mine the eyes have come off so looking to replace them.

Angler's Pro has them now. Will be in a couple of other places soon. The above is more of my personal stash. Made some for a buddy I am fishing with tommorrow. We swap baits as he makes some unique and good baits.

Sorry to bug you Mark, but went to Anglers web page and couldn't find these. Are you able to possibly provide a link to where they are located and can be purchased on their site?

Anglers web site probably wont show them. They usually have these custom made baits sitting up by the register so you pretty much have to go up there or call to see if they still have any. I always see baits in boxes at the register that someone has made.
