That's pretty cool. Looks like you're pretty good at it. How much time do you put in on a batch of lures?

Looks like i need to step up my game. How long did it take you before you could turn out and jig your own inserts ?!?!?

Duckmanclyde, I've been making calls since early 2009. I started with turkey calls and moved to stuffing duck call barrels for about a year before I started cutting my own tone boards.

Take the dive into the inserts if you haven't yet. It is a great feeling when you finally get those ducky sounds out of your own insert. Holler if I can help.

I enjoy anything duck-hunting related. I spend most of the off-season upgrading blinds, planting plots, keeping tabs on the farms, and I especially enjoy making/painting decoys. (hotbuys to shovs, making goose silos, etc)

I don't really count the time I spend on them. The spooks are easy, D Baits not bad. Building a recipe for a lure can take time. You have to designing it. Make one, find it needs something else and make another with different features. Its about doing something to keep my mind busy. I'm a tinkerer and have to make stuff.

This was Saturday experimenting with Jerk Baits with Interior rattles, in the wood. The rattle, but they are just a bit quite for me.

Then tried to get the BB's to bang the hook hanger as it worked pretty God on the large tarpon lure before. I think it just makes the hook hanger weaker and makes a little difference in sound that I like. Not sure if it's worth keeping on a small lure.

The soda can side rattles work better and sound louder.

Weres a good place to start? I thought about starting on a public jig, then getting a special one CNC'd out to my own specifications. or start on a flat jig.

I use a public jig and modify it after cutting. It is a great way to get consistent cork notch and toneboard slope. This is the easiest way to get your own inserts.
I have had some I thought about sending in to have a new jig made from but decided against it. I started out making calls just for myself and friends. After a couple years I got into selling a bunch of them. It became another job so I backed off. Now I just turn calls when I feel like it. I still sale them just don't advertise.

You will learn more with a flat jig. The only thing it does is give you a good cork notch. You have to file the slope yourself. It is a lot more involved but once done the sound is all you.
