Plugs for saltwater can easily run $20+ dollars. When you want various colors, sizes, and duplicates of each lure, buying them can be crazy expensive. Making your own is another option. Really fun, and you can make things tailored to your needs. Making them can be costly too but both options have pros and cons.
>>661135 It takes all of 30 seconds to make and you can dissemble it and use the motor for whatever purpose you were using it for previously. I used a rock tumbler motor. I made an entire chess set with it out of tree limbs, broom handles, and dowel rods. I made a few lures with it. Then tumbled some brass and stones.
>>661482 You normally get a stick on pattern or use a screen and airbrush through it to get that pattern.
>>661135 not that guy but one time I had no lures on a work trip to northern canada so I cut down a sapling electrical taped on wire ferrules, carved out a little spool, and made a lure from an oval cut from a mountain dew can, a hook of wire and a rock taped to it. Borrowed about 50 feet of line from someone and started to fish. Got the biggest walleye that evening and I think annoyed the drillers I was fishing with. Caught more than a few large pike as well.
