    Default My winter project

    So other than taking my modest Pompano 120 and turning it into a fish's worst nightmare (somewhat similar to taking a Honda Civic and turning it into Knight Rider) I got into jig molding and lure making this winter.

    Thanks to the internet and the amazing company "Do-It", I gathered my memories and experiences of what our striped fishy friends like and made 80 or so of these:

    I spent about $200 on all the gear to make them so I figure if they'd cost me $4 each at the tackle shop I'm already saving money in year one. Next year I'll make 80 or so more and it'll cost me $80.

    Whatcha think? They gon' bite it?

    Great job with the Do-It mold.

    I attended a presentation by Walleye Pete this winter and he said skirted jigs were the way to go.

    I see lots of pullage in your future.

    I know now! But addictions that you can justify with money saved are easier to justify with the wife.

    You can also remind her of how many pairs of shoes she has.
