The Ripper....
« on: 05/06/17 13:12 UTC »
This is one heck of a bait at 3.5"

It shoots very easy and the mold doesn't balk when its cold. I lain the mold in the deep freezer for ten minutes and shot it ice cold the first time and it fills great even when cold. The full length and all around venting makes the tail colors a snap. I figured a pair of eyes would dress one of these up for the camera so I heated the flat head of a sheetrock nail and made a couple very fat indents for them and did a short cover dip. The eyes are not needed.



This style of bait has been a hottie for a couple years now and its nice to see it in the Do-It line-up. Now all I need is a smaller bait for crappies.

That two color is nice. I shot a bunch in pro blue and a few other colors to feed the Smallies in Canada on an upcoming trip. Leaving next week.

Thanks, WW. I poured up some Avacado that's just watermelon browned up some. So it's somewhat close. I thought if I could have three good colors, I would at least have a few options. Hope we catch the weather favorable.

This bait has some awesome action too, although I didn't catch anything this weekend but sure had a blast casting these and other winter pours. Great lure sure do love it.

I've had several ask for the pro blue recipe. Smoke on steroids! Here you go fella's.

1 cup Medium Plastic
One drop Lure works blue hi lite
One drop UV Blast do it
2 drops Baitjunkys 3X Black colorant
1/8 tsp. Navy blue hex .035
1/8 tsp .040 black hex

The bait that was left in the mold in my picture has a pro blue almost a spitting image of AP's....but leaving it in the mold doesn't allow the light to pass thru it. A serious walleye or crappie angler up in these parts without pro blue baits in the box just isn't a very serious walleye or crappie angler. lol
