well--- i gave it a shot-- and want ur opinion--will these catch fish or am i waisting my time-- or are there some changes i should make--how fast do i pullum-- and how far behing the boat--i just could not spend a bunch of money on trollin lures --so i thought i would try and make um-- if i can do it++ anybody can do it--tell me if u think they will work---give me some sugestions fer design cuz im runnin out of ideas:work: ps i was reading fer kings --steel leaders and for mahi mono leaders --what test on both do i need and what colors work best for kings and what colors work best fer mahi--oh and by the way if u want these fish i catch just pickum up at the beach house with the american flag flying on the beach --closest to the north jettie between the 21st and the 25th of this month crystal beach bolivar--pm me if u want them --cuz if u dont-- i take pics and throw um back --i like cheeseburgers--lol

u can find the tape at Michaels, here in Houston. Hobby lobby, probably has some as well. The lures look great, but would go w/vinyl skirts instead. They will last longer, & conceal the hooks better. Fine job on the heads Haparks!

YOur lures look fine

Sounds like you will be fishing for kings, and to be honest, they aren't that picky. Sometimes you could pull a clump of sargassum (weeds) on a bare hook and catch those slimy monsters.

The first king fish I ever caught was on duct tape and hooks so you are far ahead of the curve.
