Great looking lures, and to top it off they catch your target species, what more could you want. clapclap thumbsupsmilie

Lot of fun out of the kayak too.

I take it that you are in a small sit-in yak, get towed around a bit, but great in the inland waterways with poor and awkward launching spots.

I have a little Perception Minnow, it's got me onto a lot of fish too.

yeah thats the photo of it in my last reply, it's good because you get towed to the fish most of the time. especially if it's got a few pounds under its belt.

Awesome catch, do you mainly cast and retrieve, troll, or a bit of both?

Man, your lures must be enticing, you gotta be pretty proud of that. thumbsupsmilie

Nice yak too.

Mainly just troll with small rods. i've only just got back into lure fishing about 2 months ago and have ordered some urethane casting resin so i can punch out a hundred or so lures for friends who have been up me for ages to make them some lures. I've FINALLY found somewhere to get the mold and casting gear. Might have to think about making a third prototype so i have 3 lure shapes

Most of the bibbed lures for natives are targeting fish in deep holes, but after using spinner baits successfully in really shallow water, I can't see why more manufacturers don't utilise shallow running bibs on their larger size lures. Of course the fish will be holding deep in the middle of the day to avoid outback heat, but in the early mornings and late afternoons they should work great.

Either way, I wish you the best in setting up the plastic moulds, hope everything runs smoothly and the lure makers on this forum are masters of the craft and will be more than glad to give you useful pointers.

Thanks, I reckon it'd be fun to make lures for a living.
