Not a problem. If you have any questions I can do my best to help. I have been using lips so far. I keep the weight on the light side so it floats at rest so I can deadstick it if I want. It does look much cleaner without.
looks good fishon! unfortunately i lost the cable to download pics from my digital camera, but i,ll get another soon.i also use lexan lips, i think it tracks better without rolling out on a faster retrieve.
That's very slick. Pretty much how I'm doing it, Although I'm not to the apply paint and epoxy stage. Still working on weight and hook placement to get the balance right. This will inspire me to keep at it. I can feel a Cow here somewhere.....
Your plugs are awesome!!!!! And the tutorial was REALLY awesome! Thanks so much for sharing. I love to see what other are doing and how. I've been thinking about jointed plugs all winter. Trying to figure ways to thru drill them, tails, etc. Now you showing me a handcarved method...my heads going to explode! Thanks again...I'm going to have to start playing with these.
One question...how is the stainless rod held in place. Do you just epoxy it in?
BTW...I just recently got a sweet Muddler plug. If he wants...I'd be happy to post a couple pics of it.
Cool plugman! Hopefully you can get the weight placement down!
Thanks Lower! I learned how to from others, so I like to share any info I can to give back. The pin is held in by epoxy as well. I dip the ends, then slide it in. After it's set I skim coat the outside with epoxy to secure it further.
I'm working on a few new things as well. As they get further along I'll post them up.
Thanks again for the compliments!
