Default Home made marlin lures

Just wanting to revisit the topic of Making marlin / tuna lures.

I have started to make my own, but i would like to fine tune the process with molds and best resin.

How people make there inserts? I'm using paua shell.

I'm sure these are secrets but some tips would help.

Couple of pics of the lures I've made
gone with the name SC lures for a bit of fun.

I like the first better. For what little that is worth.

Is the tail stock narrower than most? But I guess that couldn't be or standard skirts wouldn't fit -- so does that make the shoulder a little bigger than most? It just seems like a greater delta between the shoulder width and the tail piece width. Does that increase the shimmy and shake?

really just playing around with hydrodynamics of these lures i read about water flow coming back over the head to create areas of vacuum at the back of the head that hold bubbles and also movement so i tried it with this lure produced a lot of small blue fin tuna 10 - 15kg models this year , its got standard yo zuri skirts.
the shape cam about when turning down a popsicle resin mood and accidentally gouged a chunk out

I make most of mine with a piece of sheet lead below the leader hole and fix the shell, reflective tape etc to the sides of the lead. But everyone has their own style. I've seen good looking lures made with small plastic boxes or tubes filled with resin, drilled to fit the leader tube and wrapped with reflective tape.

Here are a few of mine:


I've had good results with lure heads that were just solid black or white. Getting the lure made right (centered leader tube, weight etc) is the most vital step if you are just starting. Good to hear about those blue fin tuna catches, they seem to take lures real well down your way. Bet you can't wait to land your first "barrel" on one of your own lures.

Dustin makes a nice lure!

Sorry for my 8 year absence, the economy had beat me down quite good...but I'm back.

No Dustin, you cannot have it back The yellow head is on its way to Cabo for a Mexican and Central America trip with my son. Found these unpacking last week.

Cheers,
Larry
