One of a Kind Lure for a Milestone Birthday


I treated a longtime friend to a one of a kind Custom Lure the UB Matic for his Milestone Birthday on our Canada trip in July.  He is the first to receive one of these and it was my pleasure to create this piece for him.  Can’t thank you enough Pat for all the fun over the years.

A “Rack of Laminates”

Just completed a “Rack of Laminates”. These 7″ lures nest in a rack that fits within my custom tackle box. The photo angle is limited due to the secretive nature of the outer two lures which will be revealed in Wisconsin in July.

New from the Lure Foundry, the UBMATIC! 7 inch shallow running crankbaits in Walnut /Curly Maple and Holly/Redheart. These baits are designed to swim in the 18″ to 24″ range just above the deeper weed bed.  The swimming action is suitable for both casting and trolling.  Look for a top secret lure featuring a Nitinol hinge, (Thank you Francis Peterson), to be unveiled this summer in Wisconsin.

A new Flat Body Shallow Runner

A couple of new flat body style Crankbaits in the works at the Lure Foundry. The top lure is nearly ready for the swim test, while the bottom lure, showing its interior brass hook harness, is still in the assembly stage.

Latest Lure from the Foundry

Had been thinking about this one for some time now in an effort to expand my line of lures.  These are prototype twitch baits approximately 7″ in length(wood body).  They feature custom laminated wood, continuous .072″ solid brass thru wire hardware, hand turned raised relief eye-sockets, and glass eyes.  The sting comes from VMC’s Black Nickle 4/0 round bend hooks.

These nine new lure bodies will eventually evolve into the New “Slug-O-Matic” diving crankbait available soon through the website.  Details to follow!

The Weekender Unveiled

The new “Gentleman’s Custom Weekender” is now available!  Gave this box two weeks of hard use in Wisconsin over the last two weeks to include wildly swinging temperatures, wind, rain and sleet.  Held up beautifully!  Go to the Tackle Box tab on the site and scroll down for further details.

Big Lure Big Bass

This large Bass hammered a Spalted Maple version of our yet to be named diving crankbait.  Fishing a submerged point along an eight foot contour lined heavily with cabbage yielded this beauty.  Hopefully, before the week is out, the bass will give the Pike and Muskies a chance to do battle with this lure!

  1. The largest Bass I have ever caught in Wisconsin! Hit my Spalted Maple Musky Plug while fishing for Pike and Muskies.


Bass Like Musky Lures Too

It appears that Bass like Lure Foundry Musky lures as well.  The fishing has been excellent, however the catching has been slow.  Good news is the new lures perform well as designed.  There’s always tomorrow!
