Stick Baits

Post by Hairbone »

Image

Stick baits are very easy to paint. Was not happy with the size selection available on the online lure catalogs and ended up buying directly from China via a website called AliExpress.com It is kind of hard to decipher the sizes and quantities so you have to convert centimeter to inches to give yourself a size idea when ordering lure blanks. The sizes I have correspond to rappala F5 Husky Jerk 6 and a husky jerk 8 These should be great for Champlain spring board fishing. The guy I bought my bought from on Ontario has a 40 pound brown caught on a F5 brown trout pattern so I am painting them up next :D But, Word on the strret is the Hanburgler will be the hot pattern this year :lol: Move over "Sausage Gravy Biscuit" :mrgreen:

You can paint your own stick baits if you have an airbrush for about 60 cents each. Sure beat 6-8 bucks
