Deceiver

Stuff related to my baits.
 
 

    I make baits.   Actually I make lots of things but right now it’s baits. They are carved from scratch out of wood, painted by hand, and all aprts are hand made; the eyes, the wire loops. Everything but the hooks.

    Below is a gallery of my baits and a link to YouTube videos of each one. It’s not for profit. It’s only for fun.  Enjoy...







A sinking lipless crankbait: The line tie is on top of the head. It’s pulled up from there. Click the picture to see the video










My attempt at a crayfish. It has an articulating tail that curls when retrieved. It looks better than it works though....








This popper has decent action. My first one. It’s used as a top water lure and gets it’s name from the popping action as it travels over the surface of the water.









Deep diving crankbait. This one works really nicely. It seems to dive 8 ft or so and has nice action. A keeper









An experiement that failed. It’s pretty but doesn’t work good in the water. I tried a mid-body diving lip.. it wobbles too much.








First ‘real’ fly It would be a grey ghost if I had all the feathers I needed but it’s not. The skunk fly below was a walmart materials experiment. This fly was made by using real fly making parts. Not great, but not too bad. I’ll try again at some point.

Skunk flySee it and weep. My first fly tying experience with materials mostly from the craft isle at Walmart... Ah well, it might get better right? Looks a little like Beaker on the Muppets?!

No video of this one. It was an experiment...




Goa’uld Swimbait From the TV show Stargate SG-1, a loose resemblence to a goa’uld larva. A parasitic alien.

Roach Rattle JerkBait. It’s made of pine, has a longitudinal rattle in it and in my opinion looks very, very cool

Green Crankbait I wanted a very green crankbait. I made it....

Deep Diving Chad: The first bait I made that looks like a fish... sort of. The long bill will cause it to dive deeper.

Yellow Perch Crankbait After my first failed attempt at a perch, I remade it with this very acceptable result. So... I call this the first bait I made.
