Great looking paint jobs Tom! Saw your other work on another post too. Besides [YouNeedAuthorization] do you sell them through other means? I live in your area and would love to pick up some lures with your artwork (not sure when though, still recovering from the Musky Expo eek )

Sure, be happy to do some up fer ya sometime......not only on Epay...do that only once in while...I do this it in winter for few months.

Music is loud, snow be flyen, munchies all around me, hounds at me feet...my mind wanders...end results are scarry.

smile

Did not paint anything but stuff for me this year / winter and still have six custom requests to do for couple friends of the lake before fall...no sweat.

Some time we should meet an tell me what ya want an we can get it done.

Simple is best...fun stuff.

I've dabbled with touching up some lure's with highlight colors.

Tom what do you use for this stuff, airbrush setup of sorts? I'd be curious to know the details, I think it would be fun to paint some unique customs up, good winter hobby!

Yup, old air brush...nothing fancy.

Eyes can be found online easy...paint is a mix...but mostly auto paint that thins wth water.

Glitter is a mix in, again nothing fancy.

All easy to find stuff.....fun to hunt it up or find what YOU would like to use...everyone has different techniques and styles...like when fishen or loken for women...time is a good teacher.

smile

Clear coat is nothing fancy either...any big home store has it.

Lil tricks make things go easy once you get the touch going but you will see what needs doing an not to do if you just in and just do it.

Nothing hard about it...if you keep it fun.

Nice work!

Nice try Sir. Kellet, but none of them are mine....most sold to guys in UK.

Pike guys love jerk-baits an tuggers over there.

Rest to east Ontario kats....they like cosmic munchies for rivers an big water.

Of all them posted I only kept one for me...the cool looken nuke perch DD......rest all gone.

One of a kind stuff.

It you were to copy a pattern good luck, but no one cares...you would be just like anyone else dose that [PoorWordUsage]...boring...so what would be the point of that. smile

I have some sweet Vermilion patterns.....doubt you would ever see them...well maybe if you bought me a new cabin.

smile

Go sell some screws.!!!

Tom, I think Shawn was joking. I doubt anyone would try to copy your colors, or even have the time for that matter. Thanks for the pics though, pretty cool.

Tommy,

You do a helluva job. I've done well on the ones I got from you...some "interesting" colors to say the least. I think you should paint up a couple and call them "The Long Flat Friends Of Jesus In A Chartreuse Minnowbait"! laughgrin

Sheesh, I need to hit the sack...must be getting ready for another fishing season!

Paul.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
