Live Giveaway Drawing! 1


What's up everyone, Welcome to the Live Drawing Giveaway! Thank you to everyone who entered the drawing.  27 lucky winners will be receiving a full box of lures. Several of you did enter more than once, which is excellent, and I appreciate the enthusiasm. As a reminder, this Giveaway only allows for one winner per prize, so if your name is selected more than once, you will only be receiving one box.

The Giveaway!

Giveaway Drawing

Let's get to it. My chosen recycled drawing bucket for this Giveaway was previously protein powder. I made sure to add everyone's name and email address into the drawing bucket. It took me about an hour, but it was all worth it. Each name selected will be pulled into a separate box. Again, Winners will be receiving a full package of lures. There are 27 boxes with a variety of lures I have purchased at the Houston Tackle Show. Once winners have pulled, I will be sending a follow-up email. Winners should reply to the email with their address to receive their prize.
I will start sending boxes on Saturday.

No Hard Feelings

For those who only subscribed to enter the drawing, you can unsubscribe directly on the email I send out. If you'd like to continue to receive emails, you can expect emails about new blog posts, the latest videos, lure designs. Overall, your feedback is my guide in creating the most relevant content for 3d printing, lure design, and anything associated.

New Lures

Largest Lure

Finally, here are a few examples of lure prototypes I have been busy working on lately. First up, the giant wake bate. This a two parts design with an open cavity for beads. I am still deciding if the split design will work but think of this design as a big boy for the big boys. I generally throw wake baits in the spring, early summer, or fishing redfish in the flats.

Second, I have a couple of twitch baits, The first is the flat slim, and the other is pretty much its naked brother. I also have swimbaits. Since I decided only to use the lures I have made this year, I needed a quick and dirty paddle tail. Next is a swimbait with a ball tail. As you can tell, it's an awkward name but a great design. I have been producing a lot of lures with ball ends. You can expect these to be pouring in soon.

Thirdly, as fun, as it would be to collab with my local grocery store HEB on their new lure “Ziploc bags,” I am planning to throw these standard angling ai molds. These are angling ai with a 6-inch bait in color dark grey-blue pearlescence. I also have a smaller version in the white shimmer. I typically use these in the winter. Next, I have shrimps, and a bait that I created that did not shoot very well. It's an insane creation with flashing and will be rigged on a ned head. Visually it is like a ned but with a ned fluke-style tail with, again, balls. The hope is when I go after speckled trout and redfish; the fish think it's a dying fish. There's no telling what the bass will think it is, but hopefully, they will find it tasty. At long last, I designed a swimbait that is called the fat pudge. This bait is short and fat but with a hook slot. You can expect new videos about all these lures coming soon. I will be going over the design process and how to 3d print the molds.

Molds

New Molds

Of all the molds I have created, I have successfully designed the largest one to date. I am still tuning the process, but I have to put it in about 50,000 clamps for the three cavity ned rig I printed on my 3d printer to shoot the injection mold. Generally, I use the molds by bolting the two parts together like most standard aluminum molds and then clamp to reduce any leaks. Lastly, I am doing more of a single cavity single shot mold. I typically use the style when creating the pudge swimmer. Shifting my style from multiple cavity molds to single reduces the time and process. Right now, this mold makes the clamping easy and only takes about an hour to print. It also makes shooting even more efficient.

That's all for now. Thank you again to everyone who participated in this Live Giveaway Drawing. Again, all winners should be receiving an email. For more content, be sure to check out my other blogs.
