    Default Hakibut lures

    We'll try that again as in HALIBUT lures. Lol

    Used a few chunks of stainless grab rail to cobble these together, rear end is hollow so you can stuff bait or sent soaked sponges in there.

    The one on the right is a 16 oz MudRaker for reference.

    The ones I made are right at about 20 oz with a 3x 7/0 treble hook.

    Just thought you Ak guys might like to see what we're doing down here in the lower 48 for the halibut.

    Default cool

    cool a flash Butte caller jig. After my last fishing trip I'm sold on bait bombs then useing a hi vis jig to catch there attention seems to work well I watched a vidio on halibut feeding it was awsome half the time the fish were hitting the lead weight not the bait sitting on the bottom I have decided myself that they like the action just my opinion :]

    Default Nice Jigs!!!

    How much you want for one? I paid $14 bucks for my Mudraker yesterday.

    Will be using artificial jigs for the first time on halibut today/tomorrow. I hear good things about them.

    AH

    I'm not selling them right now, just tryin to cobble up a better mouse trap that the fish will like here.

    The body is 1" marine stainless grab rail tube and I tried drilling the first two and it runied the bits so I used a disk grinder to cut the slots on the rest.

    The lead is melted and poured into the tube around a bent brass rod for the eye, the rest of the stuff is just peice parts most fishermen have around the shop. Pretty simple really.
