Sexy new lures!!!

14 posts in this topic

Check out these new lures I got from Don (b1f1sh1) at Heckler Custom Tackle. They are some sexy units for sure! I had some very particular specs that I was looking for in these lures and he (as usual) took awesome care of me! Although these lures might look sorta similar to off the rack lures, they're not even close. Don really did an awesome job on them and they're head and tails above anything you could walk into a store and buy.

FYI- Don's a sponsor here on the HSOforum, but I gotta tell ya, I'd say this about him whether he was a sponsor or not. He's taken wonderful care of me as a customer and I'm really, really impressed with his customer service- second to none!

I always did like the paint job on those. Will you be at the show in April?

These baits were pretty small, but I've got a sumo-topwater in my garage that makes it pretty clear that Don can build 'em big too. I was looking for small and subtle on these guys, but the one hanging at home is about as subtle as a kick to the gonads!

I like the green back on that topper - great way to keep track of it in wind or low light.

Don worked with me and set me up with some great lures at Xmas time, you really can't go wrong.

I like those little Mouldy's Topper Stopper spin-offs, I might need to make a call......very nicely done.

Thanks Chris. make sure you take that ''Ride'' down south man. those big bass will kill it just like any muskie/pike will. and your spinnerbait too. after you see that spinnerbait in the water let me know if you figure out (or see it) why i made that neck so big.... pssst... think crawdad. wink

Thanks Muskiefool! smile

Don - how much do those baits weigh?

the first one was 2.5 ozs. the second was a little less than 1.5 ozs.

i put up some on my site similar to the second one and i called it the ''Needle''. feel free to check them out on the ''lures for sale'' page. that double blade in front is designed to clap against the next one. to get technical... the force of the water propelling the rear blade slams it into the blade that is out of the water for an instant and slowed by re-entering the water and so on and so on.... it really creates a nice sound to home in on, especially in rough water. or busy areas. and at night.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
