Fish Caught on Our Lures 2023

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have to imagine we love catching, and seeing other people catch, on the lures we make. There's nothing wrong with innovative style, fancy paint job, or a deep glossy top coat. But I always end up asking myself: will that plug catch? In order to answer that question and to provide opportunity to show off our handiwork, please post pics of this year's fish attached to a lure that you, or somebody you know, built.


I live between incredible hold-over rivers, so I catch all year long. Catching on a hard-bodied lure is tough in January and February, but true to form, as March approached I started throwing and connecting with small wooden lures. Here's the 1st picture I took of a '23 fish caught on one of my own hard lures. Last year you guys lit up the '22 thread with pics of fish big and small, on lures of many varieties, from all over the east coast. I cannot wait to see what is caught on our custom lures this year. Thanks in advance for participating.


(lure in 2nd pic is same model, not same lure)

That's a unique lip on that darter. Looks like it works well ! Never saw that 


I've tried many adjustments in body, bevel, weighting, etc., and keep returning to the design of 1 of my 4 original protos from years ago.

I picked up a few very similar looking mini darters at the CT surfcaster show. Your doing? Just had the chance to throw them today and liked what I saw! Nice work! If they catch I may PM you for more :)
