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.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
