My latest fishing lure. It’s a wobbler or sometimes called a crawler. It’s very cool in that it makes a bloop, bloop sound when it wobbles across the water, hence the name ‘wobbler’.

It was a bit challenging as I only had pictures of some and videos of them being used. I guessed the structure. It has to be balanced just right to work as it should. Made of pine and aluminum Everything is hand made, blades, body, eyes, eyelets, everything except the hooks

There is a video of it here should you want to see how it was built from a piece of pine from a tree I cut down forty nine years ago when I was seventeen.

Nice looking lure. Watching the video right now and was wondering what kind of paint setup you are using. I don’t have any paint tools other than brushes and rollers at the moment and yours looked rather interesting. Is it a sprayed on powder coat that is then heat treated? Sorry for my ignorance on this matter, just wanting to learn.

Never mind. Just did some searching and looks to be a gravity feed airbrush setup. Looks interesting to do though. Really liking your video.

you know one of these days I’m going to follow you and try making a lure. I’ve watched you videos and you make it look fairly doable. How ever the skill at air brushing will be my down fall. I just don’t have that artistic eye. But maybe next year I’ll give it a go.

On youtube look for a guy called ‘bejan lures’ He does a great job and clearly shows each step in the painting process.
