Just wondering if any of you guys think of lures that have not been made yet that might work to catch fish? And if you do would you make it public so you could be rich money wise or would you keep it a secret and be rich fishing wise? You know if we had thought of the senko first we would have been rich. I sometimes think of things that might or might not work but don't know how to go about making them so I can try them out at the lake.

I have several that I have made in the past and typically come up with a new one or a variation of an excisting lure a couple of times a year. Several years ago, I reworked a zara spook that at times can be deadly on boiling wipers. I also often remove the back treble on crankbaits and replace it with various things. ( worm harness, a spinner, a Spin and Glo attached to the rear of a small trolled crankbait can be awesome ) I cut different plastics and glue and peg them together to get what I want for the conditions at the time etc etc.. It is fun and very rewarding when it works out. I've never submitted anything though and wouldn't know the first thing about how to do it. ( The Zara Spook idea did hit the stores at one point but not sure if they are still out there. )

If you are really serious, you would need to file a patent application to protect your lure invention from copycats. But that can be expensive.

A patent doesnt keep lures from being ripped off anyways and costs thousands+ dollars to take a company to court to prove they ripped you off. Most lure companies say it isnt worth the hassle.

i was just looking into this also. no patent attorney here in Junction but I found one in Denver that will get you set up for about $4000
