  1. Can anyone ID this thing, or offer any suggestions on how I could restore it to fish it myself? The metal lip appears a bit offset, maybe it warped?
  2. Hello builders, Was wondering if anyone had some advice to salvage a plug when some of the mixed epoxy fails to set (I assume I used too much hardener in my mix)? I have a needlefish and a couple of small crankbaits from this batch of epoxy that have a nice even coat but with some residue of hardener spread across the entire surface after almost 5 days drying. Is there some kind of light solvent I could use to "clean" off the excess hardener that is still wet without disturbing what I assume is a nice even epoxy coat just below it? Or is it best to mix up another small batch of epoxy and recoat (being very careful of ratio)? Thanks for any insight. Still pretty new to all this and this needlefish is my favorite paint job so far so would like to rescue it.
  3. Looking to get into some airbrushing for finishing kits and other fun stuff. Not really looking to get into selling so hoping to save some cash. Would mostly use for plug kits and blank plastic FW crankbaits. I'll list some stuff I'd be interested in below, but show me what you have, as I currently do not have anything. This would be a casual basement endeavor with no professional ventilation for me, so going with water based/epoxy finish approach. For budget reference, if purchasing new I'd probably go with the Iwata Eclipse HP-CS (~$150) and the Master Airbrush 1/5 HP compressor (~$90). Not super rushed to buy. Items of interest: -airbrush; in good working condition with decent variable width adjustment -hose(s) -compressor (quiet as possible is a must) -drying station (rotating) -water based paints -cleaners -stencils -eyes

  16. Hey guys, I’m picking up a Siegler SG this evening for surf fishing. Most of the time I’ll be casting between the 2nd and 3rd bar on the texas coast with 4-8 ounces of lead and bait. What are some good rods for slinging bait out that far with this reel? Hoping to have 100 yard throws in good conditions with sone practice Most likely will run 250 yards of 50lb braid and fill the rest with 30 - 50lb mono. Targeted species will be bull reds, black drum, and various sharks. (40-200 lb fish) Any advice and suggestions are welcome!

  20. So i was having a conversation with an excellent plug builder and good friend of mine the other day about color selection in general but specifically in terms of topwater plugs. Does it matter? People traditionally use light colored spooks and pencils for stripers and blues from the surf; this makes little sense to me. personally it is my belief that color does not matter but that the action imparted on the plug is far more important. Recently I filmed a few of his plugs underwater with scuba equipment for his website; spooks and pencils as well as some topwater metal lips and a few divers and darters. I found this experience not only beneficial in seeing the action of the plugs from a fish's perspective but also in realizing the lack of color when viewing a plug from below. While it is true that the rod/cone combination within the striped bass eye is different than our own the plugs all appeared black when viewed from below. When looking at nature the top predators of the ocean also share my opinion on underwater color schemes. Think of the apex of the food chain, the great white shark. Dark blue on top white on the bottom, this helps hide the shark from their prey, prey fish looking form the surface down will have a hard time spotting the shark against the dark blue abyss while prey fish looking up will have a hard time making out the sharks silhouette against the light backdrop of the waters surface. Prey fish also use this same scheme in reverse to hide themselves within the water column, think mackerel, halfbeaks, etc. Because of this i believe it is not beneficial to invest in outstandingly accurate paint jobs in plugs, especially in the topwater genre. My favorite topwater color is simply woodgrain, also for darters too and i have not seen a drop in my catch rate since making this transition from mackerel scale patters and herring spots. In my experience it is the action of the plugs rather than the paint scheme that will catch fish, then again "It doesn't matter til it does." is always true. Presentation, angle of retrieve and the action of the plugs are the most important contributors in helping to increase your catch count. In my experience one exception to this rule is overcast conditions. Bass looking up will be able to make out the colors of the lure as it will not have as much of a silhouette against a darker backdrop. In these conditions I have the best luck with parrot colored pencils and spooks, not lifelike bunker/mack patters. These are only the opinions of 2 surfcasters, not rules by any means and i look forward to hearing your input on the topic.
  21. I'm using a lefty 1 high slot lip, and the front of the lure is about .75" in diameter and its 4" long in total, do you think the lip is too big for the plug? And also what weight do you guys think I should use? I was thinking around 3 grams. What are your thoughts on it?
  22. Recently discovered the MS Slammer and really liked the idea of it so I tried to replicate it to the best of my abilities. It turned out better then I thought it would and it swims amazing. I'll upload a video next time I get a chance. Still have to epoxy it but other then that it's finished. Its made out of eastern red cedar and with the rubber tail I have, it comes out to 7" long.
