So on a whim I ordered a very large Bullet head jig mold while I was ordering some other molds.
I have all the other sizes of bullet heads from 1oz to 32 oz.
I hadn't used the mold yet and was talking to Tony Davis from Kodiak Custom the other day while at the sportsmans show in Anchorage.
He wanted to know what the biggest jig I make is and when I told him it was a 48oz bullet head he asked me to make him one.
So here is what I came up with. Super glow white for the base coat a Chartruese back with black stripes. All is done with powder paint.
It certainly was interesting to paint as it woulodn't fit a standard fluid bed cup so I had to make another one that was much taller.
The powder paint airbrushes also came in handy on this project.
The hook is a Mustad 12/0 3407 straight shank and the eye is a #3 long stainless steel eye.
Why a jig so large? I figured why not I have used 3# weights and bait in Cook Inlet a few times so why not a 3# jig?
Not sure I will make a ton of these or fish them that often but certainly will be an option.
