Newest Batch of Bucktails


Recommended Posts

Just finished painting some bucktails that I poured last week. All ready for some hair to liven them up a bit!

I make mine in 3/4, 1 , 1 1/2 and 2 ounces.... I don't need more than that in the back bays....These ones here were base coated white then airbrushed and clearcoated. I use the 3d eyes and mustad needle point hooks. Did a batch of 100. I shouldn't need more than that....lol20140303_150057.jpg

Powdercoating holds up very well but airbrushing just shows up with more detail and is a longer process and makes for a nicer looking bucktail


They look pretty nice. :up:  I entertained making my own bass rods a few years ago but changed my mind, too many hobbies

I make my own crankbaits for bassfishing...Crushed them on the salem canal on them too... You can order blank Luckycrafts for about a $1-$1.50 a piece and add your own hooks and hardware and airbrush your custom colors. They sell custom lucky crafts on ebay for $15 a pop!

Actually I will make a batch up this week just for north jersey....

We will definitely get up there. Maybe we can get Matt to join us. I don't think I scared him too bad the last few times we went. He got a little nervous when I replaced a leaky bilge plug and took on a little water. I think we took one over the bow once and it got a little deep in the stern, too. 

As for colors, white or white glow. I catch so many fluke on the teaser hook I'm beginning to wonder if it matters what color the bucktail is.
