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.

    • Little early as I'll be up every weekend for the next few weeks but are you pumping antifreeze or blowing out your lines?  Ran antifreeze last year but it leaves a bit of a smell.  Just blew out my lines today as a test run and it seems pretty easy.  Any worry about water staying in the water heater?  If I'm level and just open my low point should it drain sufficiently by itself? 

    • Saw a few in the yard last week also, now that I have started bird feeding again. 

    • I was down in NW Iowa this past week.  All kinds of mourning doves there.

      Soybean and corn harvest is starting;  so spilled grain in the field may hold them there awhile. 

    • Since there has been a great deal of discussion about Black Lives Matter and a variety shootings across the country I thought it might be timely to point out that this s Nat. Hispanic Heritage Month (from Sept.15-Oct.15) first proclaimed , I think,   by LBJ. The aim is to highlight some of the contributions made to this country by Hispanic's and also the independence of several Latino  countries.

      So far,   from what I've seen, there have been no wild demonstrations and no property damage; have not seen any reports of police having to intervene in any festivals.

      I have long felt that we do not credit the Hispanics in our midst with the attention due them. Like all other races I've met and dealt with, there have been many good solid hard working citizens and a few real throw backs. Around here we celebrate the good ones.

      Something to give at least a moments thought to fellas.

    • 13th season at MN Duck Camp for this old girl. Her daughter carries the workload now.

    • We are going to get one of the females out of this litter  
    • Where's the pic's? Male or female. Mine is British, 62 lb male and full of energy. 
    • Yes still like that setup for adding smoke. I decided to try some trays instead of hanging. Last weekends Polish would untwist which I did not care for and a few broke the skins while trying to hang.   Side note the Polish patty's from the left over that could not be pushed thru were great on the grill. Might have to leave some in bulk form on purpose next time.
    • I noticed that Northern carries the Worksharp and extra belts. Cost was $79.99
