  Squid Jig Mold
Posted by: Bucho - 05-11-2020, 05:07 PM - Forum: Lead Pouring - Replies (7)

Howdy!

I came across this cheap knock-off from a pouring supply store that makes cheap knock offs from molds that some guys found desireable for Norway n stuff. The action is fantastic, a very unique lure! The mold however is nothing to work efficiently with. The perfect fit of do-it inserts for jigging and shad spoon indicates that it was copied from something that was tailored for the Do-It insert universe, allthough probably discontinued. It looks like the squid mojo from collin`s customs but is not the same. Would love to know more about that mold and if it is available.

  Hook List Question
Posted by: QPassage - 04-21-2020, 07:53 PM - Forum: JigCraft.com - No Replies

Hi All

It's been a while.  I have stopped a few times in the last couple years.  But been busy as ever.  Major neck surgery last Fall went well and no more p0ain or pain meds,  still tying "a lot", mold collecting has hit the 140 mark, and my reg job is 4 months backlogged.  Life is crazy.
I wanted to pop in and say hello, while I was here on the forum. I been looking for an old post.  Never found it, maybe one of you know,  it was a hook/mold compatible list posted back a couple years ago, as iI recall a few pagees long?   
Welp, back to tying.  Surviving this pandemic has been real and interesting.  I hope all are well.
Bo

I've been down in the dungeon painting a few times in the last week or so. Not much going on at work with the pandemic shut-down so have a little extra time on my hands. Been doing a LOT of fishing and some painting in the evenings. These are dipped in a base color and then dipped or tapped for the additional colors. Painted some ball heads tonight, not baked yet though. Hopefully tie some up next week.

I am intrigued with this stuff, and as it seems it can`t be too hard. Does anybody have experience? Would love to combine it with powderpaint.

  Some random ties
Posted by: HatchetKnot - 03-29-2020, 11:15 PM - Forum: Jig Pics / Recipes - Replies (4)

I've been working from home since March 16th so I've been able to get a little time in front of my vise. I have been learning new techniques like palmering and I really prefer that look over others. I realize it's not always right for whatever pattern being tied but have been messing around with it. This afternoon my 3yo daughter helped me come up with these and I'm pretty happy with them. She called the black and yellow one "Bumblebee" and the olive one "Greenbean" because we had just eaten dinner and she realized it was the same colors as the green beans she had just had. It's been fun but I need to place an order for some new materials and colors so I can dial it in some more. Any tips or critiques are always welcome!

  Corona Time - Panfish
Posted by: AtticaFish - 03-29-2020, 10:58 PM - Forum: Jig Fishing - Replies (8)

Well, since I am part owner of a small retail and print shop that mainly works with schools..... I've had a lot of time on my hands with the current Covid shutdown of schools and pretty much all retail biz. Only working a couple days a week to keep up with the slow days and been fishing on off days. Hard to keep my days straight.

Fished Tuesday and had a tough day. One nice big pumpkinseed about 3 casts in and no bites for a couple hours. Ended up fishing 3 different upgrounds. Last res I tried I ended up catching a bunch of 6.5" and 7" bluegill to at least make half a meals worth to bring home.

Got back out Thursday morning bright and early. Air temp was cool in the morning and cloudy. As soon as the sun popped out I found a good school of crappie! Caught them mainly on a tungsten jig with a hackle feather tied on and tipped with maggots. Pretty much all the fish were out as far as I could cast but only 2' down under a float. When I found the school, it was every cast. 29 fish for the day.

Went this morning to clean the shop basement in case the Sandusky came up any farther and tried to flood us. Got out to the reservoir at about 1:00 in 40mph winds and walked to the upwind side. Tried out deeper and no bites. Finally tried up near shore and found an excellent mix of panfish with a bonus 12" perch. 3 perch in total and a mix of bluegill and crappie to fill out my total (23) for the day. Guess I'm getting good at my 2nd job.

Even caught a few racing stripe crappie!

I think Candy approves of my new 2nd job. She is the cleanup crew for all the scrap pieces of fish.
