I have been interested in pouring my own plastic baits for a while now. I get a lot of ideas ans making my own is the easiest way to see what these crazy ideas that pop up in my head can do. I have been fishing a lot of crayfish imitations lately and I Figure I can make a positive and cast it in RTV to make a negative and hand pour it. I want it to be a meaty bait and simple enough to be able to remove from the mold without much trouble. I also want to add a slot for the hook for better penetration and nubs to help the claws/legs flutter differently. I figure if the legs and nubs don't work out I can remove them easy enough.
Thanks for reading, let me know in comments what you think.
