CCAguns definitely lit a fire under me,had recently had purchased fine Lee production melting pot(makes extremely SHORT work of fashioning jigheads) and had decent window of opportunity and wanted to make some Manic Mullet jigheads(incredible anchor system)and had decent supply of thick-wire Mustad hooks,so I made bunch of round-head jigheads and really liked what the Do-It Manic Mullet molds are capable of producing(not currently selling any,personal use,mostly).Got to it this am,working outside with PLENTY ventilation and shortly gonna rune electric line to fine azz shed Wifey and I painstakingly built about 5 years ago(has nice bench that spans ENTIRE back wall,perfect for rod-building,etc).I took advantage of decent but humid weather and got after it,making probably 30 jigheads,mostly round but wanted to fashion bunch of Manic Mullet jigheads,next step gonna be custom open-pour swimbaits dat I have already received nothing short of RAVE reviews of from folks using em.How cool would it be to use custom jigheads dat ya made yaself,attach INCREDIBLY effective custom,unique swimbait,and toss dem babies with custom rod dat ya fashioned yep,yaself!!Hard to beat,kinda like I keep referring to,home-brewed beer,home-grown tomatoes,Swimbaits dat are ABOVE AVERAGE and yep,home-made!!!Can't get NO BETTA!!

Thanks,CCAguns,ya gonna see em up close and personal this Friday.I do a lotta custom gear,as ya know,and the Manic Mullet jighead turns out to be closest I can come to incredible Lunker City Pro Series jigheads.They have basically identical anchor systems and feature a 60 degree jighook,unlike just about ALL de other jigheads,and I like the angular shape,so close again to Lunker City's jigheads.Let's give dem babies a serious 'field test' this Friday.Gonna hopefully sight-cast some Lady P reds this Th and may have older son with me and Abita KC buddy!!Can't wait!!

Just got off phone with Abita KC buddy who is joining me tomorrow on what we hope to be decent Lady P sight-fishing trip for grassbed reds. After our monthly Food Bank food box deliveries today took ride to end of 3 Rivers Rd and scoped out ole T-Funky and she was not terribly disturbed and if few days might be worth look-see🎣🐠Let ya know how Lady P treats he and I tomorrow and looking forward to chasing bass in your private lake🐠👍

PS Be great place to “field test”some custom swimbaits. Bass and reds and specks ALL seem to nail similar lures and Jann’s Netcraft spinnerbaits made for freshwater. Gonna get supply of heavy gauge spinnerbait wire and Do It spinnerbait mold👍😎
