Some Batjigs
« on: 08/19/17 07:06 UTC »
After a 4 moth break I poured some 90 degree 1/16 and 1/32 90 batjigs for a friend.

You do nice work. I always enjoy looking at the stuff you make. You probably posted this already but did you have to mod the Batjig mold to get a 90 degree hook to fit the mold ?

Very nice. The white with the blue eyes is especially appealing.

Nice mod. They kinda look like small walleye head jigs with that sickle hook in them.  Not sure if it was something I was doing wrong but I missed a lot of hits with the wacky hook in this jig.

Yes I did.  I did it the same way I modded my wacky hook.  Do to the picture per post limit I'll link you to another forum I posted the mod.

Yeah I hate the wacky hook plus it's expensive.  I also modded my wacky hook mold to a 90 degree.

I modded a 1/32-1/16 collarless ball head mold to take the #6 wacky hook and love it for fishing thru suspended crappies but I'm not much of a fan of the bathead jig using it. I don't care for that short collar in the bathead either.
