Default Alewife





I am building this for a friend. This is my second attempt at an alewife bait. I did one out of basswood, but it was too thin and would not behave itself in the water. This bait is fatter, and is made of PVC so I hope it will be easier to deal with.

I will post up pics when it is done, if it works out. Otherwise it goes into the trash. :P

Looks damm good! Might need to paint the eye balls. Take it down to Big Mac and test it out right away. Let us know the result. If the result is good, start making money on the replicas.

Yeah, I was thinking I might add some hooks and a line tie as well.

Well, they are taking about 20 hours to make. If I wanted to make $8 an hour, which I figure is on the low side, that is $160 a bait, not counting materials, so how does $960 for six sound?

Lemme know.

Eyes in.
