It's been some time since I've poured any custom worms. Today I dug out my old stuff and made up a few different batches of worms.

Went with a few of my favorites

Jelly red with transparent orange bottom and transparent brown with large black flake on the top

Really cool looking worms!

Looks like they'll produce for you and are fun to make,

Those Oxbloods are deadly at Melones! Cool looking worms and i'm sure you saved quite a bit of money by pouring them yourself.

I'm not sure who they were originally designed by.. I just know I learned the recipe from MgM or Magic worms when I was a kid. We used to stop by those two shops outside of Redding and load up on them, even making our own.
Back in the day we used to be able to get a few of these colors at the local Walmart...

Those are some cool looking worms. Beefcakescout pours his own lures I believe. I have seen post from him in the past. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time but never take the time.


So many fish.....such little time

Thanks, I have three production pots and about 300 cavities. About 50 different colors and powders. It's something I'll do once a year so I can fill my father's and my worm boxes full.

Poured these this morning.

This mold came from the bottom of a fluke bait. I over fill if on purpose.

I make a lot of customs with clay and mold those also. Lots of trial and error.....lots of rejects. Once in a while you get one and you know its gonna get bit and it makes it all worth it.

Nice hand pours for sure BCS...
I like the paddle tail swim baits One of my good buddies is just starting to get into this. He's doing nothing but the swim baits for striper. Much cheaper in the long run...

Here's another batch this one I call my Oroville worm..

I hand pour for saltwater and fresh. I have been doing a lot of swimbaits lately but do some 6" and 4" worms, reepers, crawdads, sinkos, squid, octopus, ect. I have just started with injection baits but like the ease of hand pouring, especially when doing laminates. I really like those worms. I went through a rash of multicolor pours but have found myself going back to solid colors and more natural/neutral colors. Mainly to speed up my pours as my family is quick to acquire them from me, lol. The fish do not seem to mind.

A few more, it is more of an addiction than a hobby. I have quite a collection of molds now. Some were failures, others work quite well. Most my molds are made from water putty and POP, a few RTV and a couple from bondo.

I used to, but a new baby and life got in the way. I just make them for personal use now and can barely keep up with that. I do enjoy sneaking away and making what I can though. This year I have gotten away from the laminates somewhat and do more solid colors, mainly due to time. They look plainer but the fish do not seem to mind. Lurecraft sells a very similar mold if you are intrested. It is the 627. 6.25 inches long and based on a fishtrap. Let me know if I can help.

Did you make the octopus mold or is it available commercially? Love it!

I made it. Sculpty clay master and househole silicon with some water mixed in so it would cure. If I made another I think I would make the arms curly for more movement, like ribbon tail worms on an octopus head.
