Make your own Lures
The price of lures are going up and up and I just hate snagging up and loseing one so I decided to make some of my own. First I needed some lure bodies and I found these on E-bay, I got 10 clear plastic lure bodies with free shipping for $7.50.
You can paint them any color you need but I will show you this one I did orange because the Smallmouth here seem to go for this color.
I painted the under body white.
Then did the main body a light orange.
I panted the top a deeper orange.
Added some detail and shadowing to the fins and gills.
Add a couple coats varnish for protection.
Then finished by adding the eyes and bleeding hooks.
I made these for about a third of what it would cost at the store.
You will find that it doesn’t have to be factory pretty to hook fish, they don’t care… FISH-ON! Cookster

This year I found that walleyes were not where they should’ve been due to colder-than-normal weather. Still managed to catch some nice walleye, though!
