6 posts in this topic

Does anybody knows where I can buy some glow (in the dark) paint ?

I'd like to modify some lures.

Thanks

I believe it was Scott who told me that you could get it at Fleet Farm, with all the other jig paints.

You used to be able to find it at Fleet Farm or hobby & craft shops.

For flat surface lures, I like the glow tape better, stronger glow, cut to size or shape.

Ed, that is a good idea too.

I was going to try it on some Rapalas I have, to see if they make a difference dusk/night trolling.

I'll experiment both ways, and see.

Thanks guys !!!!!!

If Fleet , Gander , BP , Cabela's etc. don't have what your looking for check out one of the tackle components catalogs like Janns Netcraft , Barlows etc.
If you want to paint Raps then that rules out powder paints. Vinyl or laquer paints will be what your looking for.Vinyl will probably be what you end up with if you decide to paint your raps.
Vinyl paint is more a dip paint like for jigheads but if you thin it a bit with acetone will brush on pretty decent. Air brushing vinyl paints works very good but if your not set up for it = more money than the tape.
To get a decent glow you'll need to lay a base of white then paint your glow over that.
LOTS of fumes involved with Vinyl paints so do it outside in your garage or you'll stink up the house and draw the wrath of your sig other ! LOL
Sound like a pain ? IT IS !
Witchcraft makes a good glow and different colored prism tape. For Rap doctoring , I think I would go that route if I were you. At least you won't wreck any Raps with that stuff.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
