Date: 7/7/2021


When Do-it Corporation produced the finesse mold, it gave us a great addition to our arsenal of presentations to our targeted fish. This jig has an entirely different fall than other jigs. As have seen, a rebirth of the hair jig has become a staple for Walleye fishing. I want to share with you how to convert a Finesse jig to a jig that you can apply bucktail or marabou to add yet another presentation.

Match The Hatch

Author: Drake Leek
Date: 7/1/2021


How many times have you been out fishing with a buddy at your favorite lake, river, or pond and absolutely whipped their butt because of a specific bait? Something about it the fish just cannot resist. For that day, in those conditions, it is the hot bait. If there's one solitary thing among anglers, it's the desire to have that bait. When it comes to what makes that bait special there are many things to take into consideration. One characteristic that pops into any angler's mind right away is….. COLOR! Do-It Molds and CS Coatings have this scenario in mind when it comes to their diverse lineup of Powder Paints.

Turn Up the Volume on Your Buzzbait!

Turn Up the Volume on Your Buzzbait!

I think every fisherman loves to see the fish explode through the water’s surface when fishing a topwater bait. One of my favorite topwater baits is a buzzbait.  Besides a topwater frog, a buzzbait is probably one of the most weedless topwater baits there is.  It’s great to fish over the top of grass, around wood cover, and in open water.  One of the key elements to taking your buzzbait to the next level is increasing the noise your buzzbait puts off.

Give Them What They Want

For decades the goal of most all fly tiers has been to match the hatch....create flies that look close enough to real that they fool those old hardened trout. Even bass fly anglers try hard to create and offer baits that simply look real, natural. I fish Lake Superior a lot during the summer months. The days of being out there in a boat are gone now but the breakwater in Two Harbors, Minnesota juts out into the lake about 1/4 mile if not a bit more and offers water anywhere from 35 to 80 feet deep, plenty for salmon and lake trout and herring. While all three of these species have a thing for lures that are gold with some bright orange on them and will willingly hit most anything tossed out there with that color combination, the herring presents a bit of a glitch.

Making Your Own Blade Baits

Make your own blade baits

Blade baits have been around a long time. I remember my dad giving me my first one when I was still riding my bike down to the river. I used that blade all summer, catching all kinds of fish before eventually losing it to a pike. I had repainted it several times that summer trying to match the shad and minnows swimming in the shallow creek mouths. Since then I’ve always had blade baits in my tackle box.

Customize your casting spoons or jigging spoons

Do-It Mold Products

In today’s world, it’s all about having your own theme or customizing everything. You can customize your Xbox 360, your desktop, even your iPhone. Why not customize your plain, dilapidated casting or jigging spoons. Just look at them, spoons may be the most unappealing lure anglers fish with…for real, though they hardly look realistic. Just think of how many more fish you could catch by customizing them. Why not put scale pattern decals, 3-D eyes, or a feather dressed tail on them? No doubt about it, the customized spoon will catch more fish.

I heard you can bake powder painted jigs in the oven when you are done. What temperature and how long?

Curing the lure will produce an extremely durable, chip resistant finish. Jigs may be "cured' by hanging them in an oven at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Allow a few minutes for your jigs to get up to temperature. Lures with weed guards should be cured at 250 degrees F for 25 minutes. Always open the eye of the hook with a sharp object before curing, or use an eyebuster.
