I make them from both football and arkie (boxing glove) jigs in the following sizes, $20 minimum and I cover shipping:

$4 ea
1/4 oz
3/8 oz
1/2 oz

$5 ea
3/4 oz (5/0 only)
1 oz (5/0 only)

Add:
$0.25 ea for gold blades instead of stainless (see supplier price difference
$0.50 ea for 6/0 Mustad 32796 hooks (3/4oz & 1oz only)
$2.00 ea for bucktail/flash with or without silicone

All hardware (ring, blade & clip) are stainless. All bucktail and silicone skirts are hand tied and cemented. I pour my own heads using either mustad 32798 (all football sizes, 4/0 or 5/0 3/4oz and 1oz streamlined heads and 3/8oz arky heads) or mustad 32796 (sizes 3/8 up) 60 degree flat eye jig hooks. Powder paint finish.


$2.50 ea I also have 1/2oz and 3/8oz blue/black arky jigs with blue/black skirts & black fiberguards (not bladed jigs/baits)

Some examples of items I have left over from a recent club event & some of the options I've been tying lately:

Blue/Black w/ clear scale belly on a blue jighead:

Pearl white/chartreuse with a clear scale belly on a pearl w/silver & black flake jighead:

Image

Craw - Pumpkin w/ red flake & banded brown w/ green flake back with orange accent belly on a watermelon w/red flake head

Image

Golden Shiner - Gold scale back, clear w/ green flake sides & body with orange belly accent on an mottled orange/green head with green flake

Image

Blue/Black 3/4oz bladed jig 5/0 32796 hook:

Image

White bucktail/ chartreuse silicone on a 1/2oz arky head 5/0 32796 hook:

Image

Green bucktail/ gold scale with the 1oz hybrid head on a 6/0 32796 hook:

Very nice! Do you make bucktail chatterbaits? I would be very interested in those, if you did.

I certainly can - I have plenty of bucktail in a variety of colors - what were you looking for in terms of sizes?

For patterns obviously a white/silver accent baitfish will be easy - same with a green/brown craw pattern.

White, white with red stripe, black or black with blue stripe, chartreuse, white and chartreuse, green pumpkin, maybe a pink one with silver accent? Silver and gold accent stripes would be great, as you see fit. Looking to use these with swimbait trailers in saltwater.
Do you have 1/2oz arkie heads with 5/0 hooks?
I'll likely get all 1/2oz and a couple 1oz baits.

I really like this one below. Great looking bait!

I'll have to let you know about quantities because I'm going to ask my buddies if they want any.
Thanks

If I don't have any readily made I can certainly make up 1/2oz arkies with 5/0 hooks - they will be Mustad 32796 heavy wire hooks, those are the ones that work best in the 1/2oz mold.

So I'm reading this correct you're looking for 1 of each of 6 patterns? The only color you mentioned that I'm not 100% certain I have in bucktail is chartreuse - but I will double check. To be clear, you're looking for all natural materials save for some flashabu correct? No silicone mixed in but feathers are ok?

I only ask about the silicone use in the case of accent colors - the red on the white, blue on the black etc.

Let me get back to you on exact quantities, because I need to find out from my buddies what they want.

Well, I didn't realize bucktail AND silicone mixed was even an option. If you can make the below with silicone accents awesome, if not flashabu is just as good. I definitely don't want any feathers though.

These are the chatterbaits I'm personally looking to buy:

1x 1/2oz white Arkie, 5/0 hook, white bucktail, chartreuse accent
1x 1/2oz white Arkie, 5/0 hook, white bucktail, silver scale accent
2x 1/4oz white speckled Arkie, 4/0 hook, white bucktail, gold scale accent towards the top with some red at the bottom
1x 1/2oz black Arkie, 5/0 hook, black bucktail, blue accent (red is fine if you don't have blue)
1x 1oz black Arkie, 5/0 hook, black bucktail only
2x 1oz white Arkie, 5/0 hook, white bucktail only
1x 1oz green pumpkin Arkie, 5/0 hook, green pumpkin bucktail only

And only if you have these bucktail colors already:
1x 1/2oz Arkie 5/0 hook, chartreuse bucktail, silver accent
1x 1oz Arkie 5/0 hook, chartreuse bucktail only
1x 1oz Arkie 5/0 hook, pink bucktail only

If you have 6/0 hooks for the 1oz rigs, I would go with that over the 5/0.
I'd also like them all wrapped with red string if possible.

I cannot do arky style heads bigger than 1/2 oz, so the 1oz will have to be a football head.

PM sent on the details.


I can make the 3/4 and 1oz in a head style somewhere between a banana jig and an arky now.

Chartreuse with a clear silicone w/ green & black flake accenting - silicone inlay in the bucktail shown - can also be done with a second application of silicone to achieve the chandelier effect.

The biggest I have a 1oz football mold and a 1oz mold that is something between an arky and a banana head. Either can be done in a 6/0 Mustad 32796 hook. Here is a hybrid bucktail bait that used the non-football mold so you can see the head shape - it's quite streamlined but the lead is carried quite a ways down the shank of the hook. The lead ends where you see the red thread wrappings.
