Rust on Lures

5 posts in this topic

I have rust on some of my jigs and hooks on my crankbaits. What is the best stuff to remove rust from stuff like that?

Rust goes into a surface first, then bubbles out. If the rust is in the jig eyes, then even if you remove the rust, the pits are still there and could cut your line.

I have soem rusty hooks & such, and if it's non-critical locations I use a dremel with a wire brush, then a light shot of trumpet oil or hair-clipper oil.

Replace the hooks on the crank baits. I chucked a few lures this spring. It just made more room for the new stuff.

Save the little packets that you get when you buy electronics ect.ect. They are there to stop the oxygen/moisture from wrecking stuff.

There is a company that makes a product just for it tho. Go to a search engine and type in Inhibitor. They have a web site. I plan on ordering some soon but keep forgeting. Thanks for the reminder! Its cheap insurance if you ask me when you think of what it would cost to replace every thing. Plus it only costs a few bucks.

Gather'em up take picture, then post on HSOList. Those guys will pay good money for fishing stuff. Also great time to update selection. "One man's junk is another mans gold" I do it all the time. It' gida fun to see what they will pay.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!

    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
