    It is addicting, I wish I had more time to fish but really when the fishing is good, I go I am lucky enough to live a 1/2 mile from the ramp so going for a few hours is easy if I really try. I am a full time tackle maker and father of 3 so it does take a lot of my time. My wife and I are i sick of todays workforce. Your never safe in your job working for someone else. We love what we are doing so were giving it a good run to see if we can do it

    Do you know if anyone makes a mold for 1.5 and 2'' tubes? the smallest tube mold I saw was for 3.5'' bass tubes.

    Never have seen or heard od one. most people just dip a small rod in to plastic to make there tubes then use a tail cutter like the ones lurecraft sells. They tend to cut the tail to fat for small tubes. You can make your own cutter with razor blades

    That is what i want too head bang, a 1.5 inch tube mold. Might have to do like crappieday said. Crappieday, do you just pull the rod out is that how you make it hollow, do you need to vaseline it to keep it from sticking to the rod? Is that like you made the tadpoles?

    I just use a little pam on a rod, then wipe it off with my finger. if you have to much on there your tube will just slide right off after your first dip. I takes about 3 dips to make a good tube but it is a slow process. thats why I dont mess with it. I do it for my tad poles for now but I am having a mold made so I can do them faster and in laminate colors

    is there a way to do tri colors by dipping a rod, like top one color and bottom another, I am sure you could do core colors by dipping over the first coat but not sure how you could do halves this way

    you can do what they call horizontal dipping, if you bend your tube or rod that you use for dipping you can dip only half the bait, If I get some time tomorrow I will do a few pics to show ya

    crappieday, that sounds good, I would appreciate that. I was thinking I could do a t shape rod with the handle part being very very small so that actually when you pull it out you would never really notice the whole. You could dip one way and then dip the other into another color. you think that might work?

    here is another good page

    crappieday, I also thought that maybe I could do an RTV silicone mold and run a pin wire through my bait to suspend it in the mold box and pounr into it and put it close to the edge that way I could use a utility knife to cut an injection sprue hole and I could tweezer out my baits and they would be perfectly round. I was wondering what would be the best pourable RTV silicone to use for a mold like this, any suggestions?

    the problem with injecting rtv molds is you end up with a bait you have to trim. rtv gives and the pressure from the injector will cause the mold to expand. when it does the plastic will take the path of least resistance
