Anyone else ever tried carving there own bait?
What do you mean by carving bait?
I tried my hqand at carving some decoys, in an attempt to emmulate my grandfather, but failed. Never tried carving a crank bait though. A lot of fakes are made that way of antique lures and people loose big money to the fakes. So if you collect old wood lures BEWARE of the fakes.
i have carved a few crankbaits and topwater just to do it. i never fish with them .
Why not? If I had the skill and patience to carve something that might catch fish I would try it out. It would have to be great to catch fish on something you made. Like tieing your own flies and catching fish with them. That is a great feeling.
I have carved 2 crank baits out of cedar. one is like a rapala minnow and the other one is like a lazy ike. I hand painted them and have caught fish on both of them. I enjoy taking something i crafted and catching a fish with it.
