Some say, “You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar,” to which we’ve always replied, “Why the heck are you wasting your time catchin’ flies when there are fish to be had?” Some people just don’t get it.

The secret to reeling in the real big ones is to have the most alluring lure in the water. Those mass-produced, shelf-stocked lures aren’t catching any fish’s attention, or any fish at all for that matter. If he wants the bite, he’s got to delight.

The Lure Making Kit gives him the gear and guidance to mix and mold tantalizing, one-of-a-kind lures that’ll entice even the most prudent of fish.

Tools for the Tackle:

  • In partnership with Lure Craft, Man Crates has commissioned three exclusive injection molds to make delicious fish food shapes: crawdaddy, mudbug, and worm. Tasty!
  • The pint of plastisol and individual ounces of coloring, glitter, and scent is everything he’ll need to mix and mold stunning works of aquatic art.
  • The Man Crates exclusive Lure Making Guide has step-by-step instructions for designing and deploying the perfect lures. It also has information on how to re-mold the imperfect lures...just in case.

    Great Gift for Seasoned Bass Fishermen

    My Dad has been bass fishing since he was small. When I was growing up, I remember him taking my nail polishes and modifying his current lures. He would spend hours adding paint or sparkle to his baits to make them more appealing to the fish.

    What do you get for the man who already has all the bass fishing gear, brought you up playing “Bass Fishing Barbie”, and who still asks me “What color is this lure?” because he’s color blind? This was a GREAT gift- the bottles of paint are even labeled so I am out of a job. He was ecstatic when he called me on the phone.

    A great gift

    I received this kit for Christmas 2018, and am very happy with it. It's not a substitute for store bought lures, as it is a little labor intensive; but it's fun and satisfying to make them.

    I would recommend the following:
    1. Man Crates should add black to the coloring options
    2. On the larger crawdad, you must fill the hopper almost all the way, not just 3/4
    3. You MUST be sure to lube both sides of the molds; spray works better than liquid.
    4. I see no option on this site to order refills, although they are available elsewhere

    Father's Day Gift

    I selected this item because my Dad loves fishing. I guess this was partly my fault for not reading everything but, I was extremely disappointed when it didn't come in the wooden crate. It came in a regular ole box! :-(

    Lure Making Kit - Poor quality and late delivery

    I wrote the following after a request to review their customer service after I informed them of a late delivery. I cared less about the late delivery than the product I finally received so I focused my comments about the product rather than the customer service. Mancrates never wrote me back.

    My comments are regarding the quality of your product. I could have ordered all of the separate elements of the lure making kit at a much lower price and then assembled those elements into my own gift package. I paid for your kit because I was purchasing the presentation. I wasn't expecting a wood crate as your site clearly stated that it does not come in one, however the cardboard box and the internal components of the packaging were deplorable. The cardboard that was supposed to have held the contents securely was much too thin. All of the bottles were rolling around in the bottom of the box. The fish smell spilled out and made the entire box gross. I was able to poorly fix the internal structure so that it held those items in place. In addition, the arrangement of the molds, measuring cup and plungers was just shoved on the side with no thought to the presentation. Finally, the outer shipping box was the ACTUAL box for the kit. There were cut marks covered in packing tape (post office maybe?) and I had to slowly and carefully peel the shipping label off to try and make a presentable looking kit box. It was NOT the presentation that I grossly overpaid for. If the package had arrived on the original promised delivery date, I may have had time to request another package. However, with the holiday approaching, I had to go with what I got. I will wait for your response before I post this review publicly. I don't like posting negative reviews because I know that we are all trying to do our best to provide for ourselves but this felt more like there was no desire to deliver a quality product.

    Man Crates Response: Hey there,

    Thanks for your feedback, we're sorry to hear you were disappointed in your order! The issues with presentation are not something we're normally hearing, and I'm so sorry that it sounds like the packaging on your order was less than perfect. We'd be happy to replace any/all items that need to be resent so that they're not covered in the bait scent.

    That being said, we're happy to work with you to make this right or to offer you arrange a cost free and hassle free return pick-up at the location of your choice if you just want a full refund. Give us a call at 866-902-7260 and we'll do our best to make you happy, thanks!
