First attempts at some spinnerbaits
« on: 02/25/17 19:37 UTC »
I've been playing with plastics for several years now, but decided to start pouring lead as well.  I just got my melting pot on Monday so I'm pretty new to it, but these are some of my first spinnerbaits.

Here is a small bluegill colored spinnerbait.

I think this one will be good on gloomy days.

I thought I'd try a triple blade model too.  It's supposed to be a perch imitation, though I need to work on my powder painting.  Going to keep practicing with makeup brushes before I take the plunge into buying an air brush.

Here is another perchy model.

I also took a stab at a bladed swim jig using the Utra Minnow mold.  I saw where someone did this on the  forum and figured it was worth a shot.

I think you'll kill them this spring with those offerings. You're off to a great beginning. Nice work.

Thanks!  I have a specific lake in mind that's full of little bluegill and perch as well as some sizable bass.  I'm hoping I got the colors right to trick them into thinking the baits are their favorite forage.

I'm pretty sure that most of those will fool them.

  Some more nice work. I really like that bottom blue color your using on the lead. Looks like a robin egg blue. Are you powder painting that ? If so what color is that ? I like how it tones it down from a white but is not to glossy. You got a good combo there.
I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

Yes it's the robins egg blue.  Sometimes I blend a little powder blue in too.  I'm still learning the art of flicking the brush.  I've spent a bunch already so I kind of want to wait on an air brush.

Now that you mention it that chatterbait does look a bit like that color.  I was just playing with tabs and thought it looked gilly 😊

Thanks!  That means a lot seeing as you're kind of the spinnerbait master around here from what I've seen  :)

Here are some new color combos I'm really digging.
