A buddy and I were out a week or so ago and had some great action chasing the muskies. He caught two and I lost another. Both of his fish came on a 6" crankbait in Fire Perch. His first fish in the timber was around 41" and the second was in the 42" range. We didn't take the time to accurately measure them, just wanted to get them back in the water ASAP. There's nothin' like catching fish on homemade lures!!!
Anyone else have some pictures to share?
This was Josh's first fish. She was hiding back in a bay in the standing timber.
His second fish came across the lake from the first in a protected bay. She was laying right on the weed line. A real fatty!
Awesome fish both of them Jeremy! Theres nothing like the feeling of fish being caught on your home build lures! My brother Dave caught this hog yesterday in a tournament at Pyma. The fish was 52" 38 lbs and grabbed a clown pattern Hammer lure that I build.

Nice pics guys!!! Good job!!!
Here are some dace and smelt patterns I built here lately for walleye all out of cedar...the following picture are the results from Friday. I never get tired of the rush from catching fish on your own baits!!!
Nice job Bowhunter! Thanks for sharing the pics! I'm new at making baits and get a kick out of seeing this stuff. Love that perch pattern.
RJ Bass- those baits are awesome!!! It just doesn't get any better than catching fish on your own lures.
The two best times to fish are when it's raining, and when it isn't.
