Hope everyone fares ok through Christobal and had plenty idle time on my hands and CCAguns gave me plenty lead plus lent me nice Do-It Mold for 3/8 and 1/2 oz lead jigheads and I have at least 5 other Do-It Molds that have been relatively idle,particularly since the soft plastics I have been tossing(Lunker City Shakers)mate perfectly with perhaps the absolute finest jigheads I have EVER seen/used-Pro Series jigheads with ridiculously sharp and strong hooks and I get the painted ones in mostly 3/8 oz size.Been itching to get after making some jigheads(lose plenty at Long Rocks)and this Tropical Storm gave me plenty idle time and bought fine Lee production pot(is incredibly efficient)and been texting with gent down in Houma dat I befriended via this site.He was telling me that his hobbies sound lot like mine and he has made plenty custom rods(I have professional rod wrapper),makes tons of INCREDIBLY effective soft plastics,and makes plenty of lead jigheads and was stating that he has not purchased a lure,jighead,rod for over 7 years.De way I spend money,could save me a King's Ransom!!!Got about 60 lead jigheads made and texted pic to this fellow and he praised the quality(always nice getting a compliment,especially from someone who has been doing this probably longer than me)!!!Can't wait for Christobal to move N and hope and pray that EVERYONE spared his wrath.Next step is to run electric line to fine shed Wifey and I built about 4-6 years ago and entire back wall is fine bench,tailor-made for rod-building,lure-making,etc!!Hope CCAguns and I can make a Hopedale trip possibly this Friday and want to get AJfishes a supply of soft plastics for him to toss!!
