Ctom - why do you have to be a trouble maker?  ;D

Kyle is too busy working to go fishing at this time of the year!!! Plus - he has to help me pour my baits for next season! 8) He's much better at plastic than I am!!!

We are planning on posting photos of your creations depending upon the volume of the entries that we receive.  Entries are starting to roll in as we speak.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's handiwork.

Last chance to get entered into the Fall Bait Build Off.  I see several of you procrastinators flooded my office with entries yesterday. Nice work, and some really great baits this year.  Looking forward to judgement day on All Hallows' Eve.
