Georgian Bay Baits

Discussion in 'Tackle Making' started by rjbass, Oct 18, 2008.

  1. Hello fellas,

    Took a September trip to Georgian Bay and of course had to make some new baits to make the trip. Dark colors work well in those waters so I took my "Hey Cisco" style bait and did several dark colors. The Rainbow Foil I did on request for a customer, it came out pretty good...Thought you might like to see...These are 8" 2 1/2oz floater/divers, can be trolled, cranked, twitched or used as a dive and rise jerk bait and all techniques work well with this style bait.

  3. Just amazing work there Rod. The leopard and the rainbow would have to be my personal favorites, outstanding.

  8. Very good job. Isn't it fun making your own baits? It's even more fun catching fish on your own lures. Thats how I got started in the lure biz.
     
  9. Super looking baits Rod, I've gotta go with the rest of the guys and say that the rainbow is my favorite also. I love how you blend your colors, I wish I had half your talent with an airbrush.
     
  10. Rod those are excellent. I don't think I've seen anyone do a foiled rainbow yet, but that thing really pops. I like that Leopard a lot too.

    Rod,
    These are absolutely beautiful. Almost too nice to use, almost. I would probably cry every time I lost one. :)
