Painted these jerkbait style minmows up in my mullet pattern. I like this pattern and will be keeping it as an staple part of lures that I'll be selling every nowand then.

Most lures will be sold between 8-12 bucks also dependant on wethe or not people need terminal tackle rigged to them. Atleast the bare minimum they will come with split rings as people like to put there own hooks/trebles on...

I also painted these up for myself some bream crankbaits...

Might get into bream lures a bit more as easy to get ahold of and people bream fish!

Got Rezbaits to put these lures up for sale on his Facebook page and they sold within an hour! Super Stoked to sell my first lot of lures!

With all the practice and trial and error I am getting more confident Everyday with my Lure painting skills and makes me keen on selling a few more. I was hesitant it getting them up for sale but glad i did. All the money goes towards more fishing gear so thats a plus!

Keep an eye out on the For Sale thread you might find some coming up for sale :)

Well done mate. Awesome!

Those jerk baits look solid. What length they come in at?

Cheers mate come in around 110mm and weigh 10 grams rigged... 

Depth around 1-1.5m and come rigged with bbk hooks and quality split rings

Perfect as a twitching jerkbait or a slow roll lure as it has a tight wobble to it... 

Certainty will be a snook,flathead, salmon mully killer... 

Sold them for 13 bucks a piece with free postage australia wide.

I think i have 4 of those blanks left which is unfortunate as they dont make them anymore 😂 but will find similar.

Once deliveries go back to normal ill load up on more blanks. Im still waiting for my last 500 dollar order to get to me :(

My 1st thought were for Flatties. Super keen to see future interations. Keep up the good work mate - your patterns and finishes are looking the goods 👌

Doing a great job with those lures. Look fantastic. If you can do some videos with those lures catching some nice fish, they will sell like hotcakes. Might be an idea to hook up with that young fella doing regular videos on land, kayak & boat fishing "AlexsFishin" ..

Cheers mate. 

Im glad the 1st lot of lures i sold are to fishos that actually fish and catch fish. So hopefully they come back with some good photos videos etc.... 

I'M hoping to get out alot more myself now that my overtime got taken from me at work. Plus winter trout fishing is alomost upon us so I'll be looking to paint up alot more trout lures... 

My biggest issue is finding blanks that not only work bu are going to be readily available for me to get..

Plus i don't want to step on other lure painters feet. Hence why i haven't painted any cod/callop lures...

It's also a case of do you bulk paint say 5 different types of lures in say 3-4 different patterns And sell bulk or do you go with paint what i feel like and try sell it? If it sells great. If not i guess it can be mine to use. Haven't decided yet. 

I'll  keep just painting lures and creating my own styles and if i sell a few great! If not no big deal... i know that when i do get a chance to  go out to fish I'll only be using my lures and Rezbait plastics. All my other brand name lures have been packed up and put to the side...

If you managed to get onto any bent minnow blanks, Southie, I'd be very interested. Anywhere from 70mm to 180mm I'd have a use for them.

Well these are at the 2nd last stage of the lure painting process. 

Just added my signature on the bottom of the lures and added the 2nd and final clear coat to them. 

The last stage is fitting terminal tackle and test swimming before sale...

It's not as simple as paint lures and your ready to fish. It takes plenty of prep work and tedious bits amd pieces to produce lures like this...

It has taken 2 weeks of prepping. Drying. Clear coating etc just to complete 10 lures... 

That's what makes it much sweeter and rewarding when you sell one and someone catches a fish on them...

Keep an eye out as I'll put these up for sale on here 1st before i post elsewhere...

Yeh mate sure is.... i won't buy anything until spring... unless i can get a good deal on them. But when spring time comes I'll be buying up a 100 or so yfw blanks. Maybe even some small poppers aswell... 

But certainly put the larger sizes on the list ;)

My latest project

Softy asked for some callop lures so after some research and finding some to suit the depths and conditions for the variety of ways people will fish them. 

So after 2 weeks they finally arrived. 

So decided to prep and start placing the sealent undercoat and base coat tonight to let it dry overnight to add the next colours to it... 

Softy gave me a photo of one of his favourite lure  patterns so i am going to replicate it but put my own twist on it... 

The lures are 100m from start of bib to tail end. (Only 5mm larger than the popular Daiwa rpm crank and weigh 15grams roughly with terminal added. 

Come with rattles too. Dives to 10ft-12ft

If interested let me know as i have sooo many colours and patterns available for this lure..

Here is some progress shots..
