I have been working on a couple softbaits. One is a cross between a Mission Fish and an Optimum, the other is sorta like a skinny Osprey. The tails are different though.
I still need to do the final seal/sand, but you can pretty much see what they will look like. I will of course make a mold of these masters, and pour softbaits from that mold. I wanna get a few made before April, I got a trip to Texas planned...
Also built a rat/Slammer type bait after I figured out how to use the drill press as a lathe. It involves a modified boring bit and the casette from a mountain bike.
That bait will have a white Zoom Trick Worm as a tail. No more buying Slammers for me lol.
Anywho, they are all about six inches, which I find a productive size locally.
I also think I have figured out how to do my photo-finishes, so the PVC baits will be being built soon. Those I will sell. I really am happy with how that stupid thing has turned out, but sometimes being so anal about it does hold me back a bit I think.
Here are the pix...
