Title: Do it molds Ice fishing molds coming fall 2021.
Post by: Agronomist_at_IA on Jun 07, 2021, 08:43 PM
Talking with do it molds, it sounds like fall of 2021 we will be seeing some possible molds for ice fishing.

One could be some small spoons molds to make jigger spoons for perch.

The may also be making a small mold to make mooseís style jigs.

Both would be nice, but Iíd love a mooseís mold style I lose plenty of small jigs with light ice fishing line.

I make a lot of my own plastics and lures. It will be nice if they actually come out with some panfish sized jigs/spoons. The round head collarless jig is about the only thing thatís small enough currently for ice fishing panfish.

Yep, me too.  Found a 1/8 oz spoon last year that I made crushed ice pimple look a likes and they worked well on perch and kokanee.

Will these do it molds only be for lead pouring or for soft plastics as well?  I started pouring my own ice plastics this season and had quite a bit of success with them.

They already have a bunch of panfish/ice plastic molds.....they just lack in small panfish lead jig molds

If anybody is pouring 6-7 inch swimbaits in a perch pattern please post me. The guy at Worlds Worst Fishing does not sell his baits. Thanks.

Here is a pic of all the panfish plastics/molds that I shoot. They work very well.

When the bite is tuff and they wonít even eat live baitÖ.a finesse tail with live bait seals the deal,

I feel silly asking that as I realized that I own a few of their ice molds.  I appreciate the pic. Any favorites?  I really like the bubba scud although there is one that looks like the maki plastic

The bubba scud is ok. The tentacle arms donít have much action though compared to some of my other molds.

Iíve fished mostly blue Gill, crappie, and perch with the plastics and always have a number of bass that hit them.

All work, and depending on the day and fish mood they seem to either want the smaller ones or the larger ones.

The ice pick, ice tickler, and waxie wiggler, and ball tail have all been good.

On neutral to tuff bites the tiny curly tail and small ice bug really pay off.

Looks Kool.

Last few years the ice fishing/panfish plastic molds have really blown up. Great selection of different stuff out there.

Found an exact baby brush hog mold for bass fishing at BasstackleÖ.think it will be a nice shooting mold.

Speaking of molds i just bought a spinnerbait mold.im a lucky strike jimmy Houston spinnerbait fanboy and sick of paying 6$ a piece.can make almost the exact replica for less than 2$.found another lead connection and paying about 20$ for 120 lbs.its harder wheel weight lead but works fine for jigs,sinkers.splitshot need pliers to close tho.i ladle pour 6 and 8oz sinkers.my lee bottom pour is too slow for big weights as hard lead with antimony/tin cools faster than pure lead.

Yep. Made a few and buzz baits. I use a lot of plastics for trailers and sometimes just that without skirts. The skirts are what sucks, but I found buying the skirt kits to be the way to go.

I got a plumber buddy that hooks me up with lead from old pipes. I got about 35# in 1# Lee bars I made.
