a few Crappie and Bass
« on: 08/28/18 23:07 UTC »
Hello guys it's been a while since I've posted but figured I would share a few I've been putting together. Nothing to fancy here but trying to get better the more and more I make.
I done these in Watermelon Red,Motor Oil both changeable and Regular X2 Motor Oil and Chameleon.

Looking Good Shaunm81. What size flake is in the lizard? Looks pretty cool.

Nice stuff there. I'm surprised more people don't do that Fat Fork.....such an easy bait to work with. And such a dandy producer.

Thanks everyone this sure is a super great hobby.  I  really like that Chameleon color juiced up to a nice purple with the red flake. Should  I  be using .40 glitter in those bigger baits  or is this just  add any size glitter you would like kind of thing? I  just thought  maybe I should be putting .40 size flake  in those larger 3.5" swim shad and  .15 in stuff like the lizard? I  still got lots to learn for sure but I'm hoping to get there.  Yeah Ctom I  really like that Fat Fork it shoots  really nice baits.  Lines the glitter in the lizard is .40 black and.15 red maybe I  should  downgrade that to .15 black and  .008 red? Maybe would be more fitting of a mold that small?  I  like  for the black to be bigger than  the red with the watermelon red  I also need to shoot a little lower temperature  on the lizard I'm thinking to  rid the flashing. Anyway thanks again guys appreciate it.

I think the larger glitter in that lizard adds great realism to it. What size flake is it? Maybe a little cooler temperature, and a slower injection to cure the flashing. A little minor flashing like you pictured doesn't bother me.

Its the.40 Black Hex.  Yeah I get flashing on the Rad Tad mold arms area also going to keep tinkering with it
