As some of you guys have noticed i haven't been active a lot on sealine the past year , so i thought i show you some work that i did last year. These are the last lures i made before i started studying engineering last year so it goes without saying that i don't have a lot of time between student life and studying , but i'm missing this hobby and have a lot of plans that i still want to materialize in the future with a bit of engineerng knowledge.

i made these lures for a mainly spearfishing trip to Pomene in mozam . They have a great tight action and handle fast retrieving speeds well.Thanks to Benny for some supplies that really took this batch of lures to the next level. I chucked my arms off but couldn't get a single strike in the estuary. It was pretty barren fishing from the shore.

I shot a 10.6 kg jobfish though so that was cool;)

sorry for the crappy quality pics and hopefully i can post something new soon!

finished lures:

the jobfish:

i used polyester resin and surfboard foam witch caused some problems but i fixed them haha. Some of them are foiled with alu foil tape.
