Pogie thanks for sharing:) I guess they just look nice, the reason I passed on the Savage squid is I saw a demonstration of them in action at first it looks good but I have been diving the other Cape and as I watch squid under water they swim nothing like the Savage Squid. Just my two cents

 

I only used the yozuri once while fishing with Mike Bosley on the Dragonfly.  My girls were livelining macks off the back of the boat so I was casting off the bow with the yozuri.  

 

Even with the sweet rod setups he had, I couldn't get much distance out of that thing, and it swam more like a plug than a squid should I think.

It was late June and a little early for Monomoy, but the girls didn't have any trouble hooking up with the live macks. :)

I think I’m almost ready. Pour a few more jig heads to match the squid and tie up some with bucktail sand hackle.

Wow would love to get my hands on some of those for the rips this june. Can't beat a good old hogy 10' pink on a weighted wide gap. My favorite lure for visual fisheries like we have in the bay and monomoy rips.

Not really hard. Microwave some plastisol to 350 or so. Add colorant and glitter made for plastisol of choice. A lot of fluorescent colors need to be added before cooking. Now you have hand pour molds and injection molds. If you want laminate baits (2 or more colors) they have dual or triple injector kits. If injecting laminates I recommend top injection molds. That’s the basics, it’s fun but I warn you very addicting.

I gave it a try a few years back, The one mistake was I was not using a respirator, do you use one??

I do not use one when using plastisol, I am in a well ventilated area, Not saying you should or shouldn’t. Just my personal choice. Now lead I use an organic vapor full face respirator.

Thanks for sharing :)the issue I had was the plastisol caught on fire, I did put it out but I had a sore throat for a month.
