Recent pouring session
Here are some pics of some jigs and spinners I poured not so long ago....some of the pics aren't the greatest - cell camera w/ fixed focus.

The molds I used for these are all from Do-it - some were new purchases, and some used that I had picked up here on Jig Craft. 


1/8th oz Swim jig - going to try these for crappie

1/16 and 1/8th oz Shad Darts

3/8 oz Erie assortment - spinner bait, jigs and in-line spinners - all of these molds were used. The spinner bait mold was designed for straight wire, and I used a pre-bent form, so it took some wiggling and tweaking to get the hook and form lined up.

In this pic are ball head in 1/64 and 1/80th oz. This was a new mold, and I was very happy w/ how these turned out - I was using hard lead (wheel weights). In this pic, the 2nd jig from the knot is 1/64 oz, the others are all 1/80.

Some 1/32 oz tube jigs. These jigs and some others will be part of a gift pack I am putting together for the gas station owner who gave me the wheel weights that I used for this pouring session.

I modified the mold you used to pour the first jigs to pour a Mustad 91768 30d swim bait hook & hitch hiker to screw into the bait because this was the best jig to drag across the rocky bottoms I fish without getting snagged

Hookup

Any chance of you posting some pics of your mods to the mold? Looks like a neat idea.

I tried fishing two of mine yesterday - a rock bottom got them both, and a ball head jig to boot.

Thanks

What I did was put a hook down on the mold & used a sharpie to outline it, then removed any excess metal within the outline

Since I do not fish the heavier 3/8oz jig, I filled 1/2 of the mold with JB Weld for a 3/16 oz jig, then sculptured it to a rounded edge.
