Some 7cm small game lures.
Yet they are 75% done. Have to add the lips, split rings and hooks.

All the four guys are ready to swim after installing the hooks. They have been painted and coated and are strong to take on some small fishes.
This time tried the metal lips and are better than the plastic ones.

Two biggies are drying out in the sun and should be ready to swim shortly.

A very passonate and neat job. Suggest yo decrease the lip angle a bit. Best of luck for future barras.

And yes, hertiest congratulations for your first Barra. I am sure, it must have given you the thrill of your lifetime. Did you land it on a regular or home made lure.

Regards,

Ali.

@ Raj with you now going for mass production of lures :wink: do you buy or make the split rings at home ??
as one split ring costs 10rs and you must be needing a lot of those to arm you lures

I make my own lures , split rings and leaders etc etc 8)

WoW that’s great that you make your own Split ring.

As correctly pointed out by you each Split rings costs (INR10 - 12) depending on Thai or Jap made. Yes it is an expensive affair.

I would love to learn how you prepare your split rings.

A stainless steel wire is strong to bend and is hell of a work.

Even doing that won't help as the wire is not tempered and it will straighten or lose shape under pressure
All you have to do is take along the sample of your original split ring and look for one of the spring shops located in mumbai { Lohar chawl area } when you find the shop ask the owner for the same size high tension spring it comes around 20-25 rupees only for one piece of the foot long spring
Come home, take a diagonal-cutter-plier {perferably from taparia make } and sit in the corner of work place facing the corner and cut the spring from one end exactly at the completion of the second turn and the separated piece of ring will fly out but will be bouncing on the corner of the wall back to you :-) compare it with the OG split ring, in the beginning you will waste a few rings till you get it right ,
I make about 40-50 split rings out of a foot long spring
hope that helps :P

I have restrained myself from commenting earlier, however, that is not a popper. You could call it a surface lure. (A lure could be anything that would lure a fish to strike, eg; a spoon, a shad, a piece of wood or even a piece of metal pipe - used for tuna)

I dont think the grouper or barramindi actually care about the colour of the lure, the paint could be all off the lure & they would still strike. It is the action of the lure that gets the fish to strike, either as food or as a defence when it feels that their space is threatened.

A simple suggestion would be to first work on the shape & movement of the lure, rather than colours. Poppers are called so because of the distinctive 'Pop' sound that is created everytime you reel it in.

Good luck with your fishing.

Thanks for your suggestion Keyur.
I am working on the lures action to mimic a bait fish. Have success with some.
As far as colour is concerned agree that fish are not attracted towards colour. However different colors do work in different water condition.

Check out video of the yellow and white swimmers.

Amazing action and dives shallow.

Tested them in a small pond.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EnWSRcV2EA >> This is the white swimmer.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZp5gAehbnU >> This is the yellow lure displayed above in the post.

Please excuse me for the poor video quality. I was alone testing these lures and recorded through my mobile.

Really nice work, color combinations are also very attractive. A bit practice will make them a better finish.

Waiting for the sea to get calm and then can test them out in wild.

I have a question - for Barra ; fishing off a pier or strip of land jutting out into the sea, what depth should the lures be at

when I was much younger I used to fish of a the Lion Gate pier (navy area) and used to regularly land Barras . Used to use a hand line with a big hook into some fresh Boi fish or mackerel - my friend who was a navy officer, would fish with his own lures made out of wood and painted silver and he would also land some good barra. however, the issue is what height should the artificial lure be - a foot under the surface , two feet ? to strike Barra

Ans: Repeat the same magic which you used when you were younger.
