Have yet tried them on striped bass. They do catch smallies really well :)

Bumping this thread as it's that time of year again.

I've added considerably to the mold collection for lead pouring, as well as obtained a decent supply of lead-free pewter for those of you living in states which have banned lead lures.

PM to discuss anything you're looking for. Also custom building bass rods too - 3 dozen + builds completed to date.

Different take on the chartreuse shad requested by a buyer:

More from the recent order - many custom configuration examples all with tied on skirts to survive pike attacks. Banded skirts are an option too, but have less profile and less action and are prone to being cut-off by pike or other toothy fish. Each hook has a piece of weed-guard tied and cemented into a very effective double barb bait keeper:

Your speaking my language with those weedless arkie jigs with rattles. Those look sick, I may have to buy some, I have some areas where they would get hammered by drum.

Gearing up to make large batches leading up to a swap meet in early spring, small batch orders are still ok in the meantime.

WOW - I went price comparing trying to figure what I should be charging at the swap and I'm totally out of touch with retail prices it would seem. I'm selling these things for $4~$5 and name brand ones are running $8, $9 or even $20???? All because they started using the premium quality hooks I've been using right along and, what, painting the blades?

I'm trying to come up with 5 of the most popular styles for the upcoming swap meet - blue/black is a given, perch is another favorite people order with me, but everything else seems to be a scattered mix with variations on baitfish imitations coming in at a collective 3rd place...

Even if you've never bought them please hit me up with your favorite chatterbait color patterns (links/pictures are especially helpful.)

Thanks to all

More patterns for the swap meet. Dunno why straight chartreuse/white/black never really crossed my mind. I'm always wrapped up in trying to come up with match the hatch styles that I forget about the simple things. Working on big batches like this I don't attach the blades until I'm done tying everything, but these will be vibrating jigs using either straight stainless blades or painted ones (black, gold, green).

Lots of left over chatterbaits 1/4oz, 3/8oz and 1/2oz of all patterns. 1/2oz use an extra heavy wire nickle plated mustad hook (32796), 1/4 and 3/8 use a std wire mustad nickle plated hook (32798). 6 for $20 and I'll cover the shipping to you. I can't sell these with the blades pictured, so the baits delivered will have the rounded blades. Custom patterns available on request.
