I still think you'll have a custom mold in your hands long before you'll get one from Do-It.
I'm tempted to have an Aluminum one made just to prove my point.
But then again I don't have much need for the Marmooska.
Even a custom cut CNC Aluminum mold should be in your hands for this ice fishing season.
One fron Do-It is easily a year away if not two or more.

I would have no idea how to have a custom mold made.

Just buy a blank mold and find a machinist that can machine what you want. There are a couple guys online that do custom work as well.

What about a tube jig like the 3217, style TA. It's a 1/32 and 1/16. size #6 AND #4 hooks. Maybe a smaller hook would work in it.

It's not rocket science.
Like others have said just contact a custom mold maker and give him your ideas.
Once you agree on the design and price he will do the cad work then cut your mold.
I recommend trying Shawn Collins customs and/or Bob Lalonde at CNC molds n stuff. I have molds from both of those guys but there are others out there as well.
No idea what it will cost you as every mold is different but you will get a custom mold for the jig you want usually in a reasonable time frame depending on how busy they are.

I might have to look into it.

I've got a feeling with the panfish plastics and the popularity of ice fishing for panfish that Do it molds will be bringing out a mold.
