How to Make Fishing Lures with Household Items

Loading ....


Eldon tries his hand at making a couple of fishing lures with items found around the house. These lures haven’t been used yet, so time will tell if they actually catch fish. Some of the household items used in making these fishing lures include nail polish, paper clips, shell casings (.22 long rifle), and deer antlers.

  1. It’s all fun and games Untill you forget to use the .22 first hahaha

  2. Don’t sound like household items!

  3. i made one out of a bullet by grinding the end off it then put a fake egg on it then i got a 30lbs brown trout with it and i was so STUNED

    1. it is at a yt chanle called FOOTROTFLATS and the profile pi is a motorbike

  4. Like you have bullet casing lying around your house

  5. Have you tried paracord for the tails at all? I use it on my home made lures great results

  6. They look pretty good!

    1. Thanks!

  7. made the first one and caught a big mouth bass and some pirch

    1. +probassfishing03 glad to hear it! Thanks for the feedback!

    2. largemouth bass

  8. I’ve been looking for a use for all those deer antlers and shell casings I have lying around

    1. Darth enderman hahahahaha

  9. Thank you for the video! Like!

  10. Yep… I’m sure EVERYONE just has a rifle casing lying around the house

    1. I have thousands of many different calibers

    2. Mrapple Muffin I do

    3. I have thousands

    4. +Great Cove Adventures agree

    5. +Mrapple Muffin In the area of the country I live in, there are very few households that don’t have a .22 rifle with plenty of extra casings every time they take it out to do a little plinking.

  11. Bruh do u even fish

  12. A great modification to your top water popper lures is to cut a tiny hole in middle of a clear water bottle cap. Those thin ones on the cheap bottled water…. then put it on the lure where you tie the line. The wire loop made to tie your line onto would be sticking thru the hole in the cap. Essentially the cap would gulp way more water than the original design making to attract the fish with less effort so the lure stays in the water longer between cast

  13. Wood or plastic cigar tips work good too for little poppers.

  14. Is there anything you can’t do? Thanks for vid!

  15. Good looking lure! It works as well! I only caught one trout but it still worked

  16. Great looking lures! For survival purposes or just for the fun of it, looks very effective. Hook On! 

    1. @Great Cove Adventure Films  did you catch anything

  17. or you could just drop it in a bucket of water

  18. yup

  19. lol good one

  20. Looks like swivel with a bit of wool poor

  21. lol cool

  22. Do you feel lucky, punk?

  23. lol wow its clint eastwood the cowboy haha yeeeeeeeha!

  24. Not the greatest. But mostly I’ve tried them with panfish and with them it’s hard to beat good ole redworms or baby night crawlers. If the bite is good, you will catch them on these lures, and adding a small spinner to either model works wonders. You can get a pack of those for a few pennies at most tackle stores.

  25. Have you tried them yet if so how did they work?

  26. i am going to tri to make one

  27. do i look like a damn vegan lol onion head!

  28. I asked myself the same thing. Maybe saw a plastic or metal pen and use that?

  29. It worked for me

  30. What else could you recommend as the body?

  31. Thanks 🙂

  32. You think I’m only going to catch one fish on this lure? 😉

  33. wow making a lure out of a damn shell casing that means 2 deaths from 1 bullet that’s good going my demon friend,ever thought where your going when you pass from this evil shit hole? its down to you bro sort this killing things shit out and stay on the path to righteousness always,deliver your self from evil only you can do this ok!

  34. Thanks for the tips. I didn’t know about round nose pliers – I’ll need to get me some of those.

  35. Hi two things- the wire just under the shell (the pice that sticks out) has to be bent further so it doesnt catch the line(or cut off), especially if you hook into a bigger panfish or bass. Also- buy small pliers for crafting- they are called “round nose pliers”- cheap, and very very useful for working with most types of wire. They have to be completely round tho, flat surface of standard pliers damages the wire. Deer antler lure- you might want to add weight, because casting will be very hard.

  36. Because everyone has bullets laying around same with deer antlers…

  37. This a tardy response to your comment, but you are correct: I should have used spinner. I’ve found that without a spinner a lure like this is not nearly as effective as when you add a spinner. Something about that flashing draws them in. For those that don’t know, you can get a pack of spinner blades for a few dollars at most tackle stores.

  38. U should have put a spinner on it

  39. Not yet. I only targeted panfish two or three times this summer, and the only one I tried was the red one. Just a few casts and I didn’t get anything. I haven’t tried the shell casing lure yet. Where did the summer go?

  40. just wondering did u catch anyfish with them lures at all?
    and good video

  41. LOL… I guess it depends what area you call home. Here in backwoods Fulton County, PA, I’d say these are household items. 🙂

  42. umm yeah a gunshell and a deer antler all people have this in their house making it household right?

  43. I hold three pieces of yarn against the shank of the hook so they extend from just below the eye down past the hooks. Then I wrap thread around the pieces of yarn and the shank of the hook. I wrap the thread many times – enough so the shank is completely covered. During the wrapping process, dab it with fingernail polish so the thread stays put. Then cut the yarn to the desired length, and fray the ends so it becomes a skirt instead of three individual strings.

  44. just wondering how did you make the skirt for it? thanks

  45. Thank you… I’m now working on making one with an old spoon – I’ll be posting a video of that soon.

  46. thosse lures look like you baught them from a store great job they look good

  49. Hey great video and great materials I’ve tried this before but with different material. I really enjoyed making lures and this is the video to watch. Good luck and godbless
