paint your own cranks

3 posts in this topic

after losing one of my favorite color crankbaits last year and not being able to find another one (red), i was watching my wife painting her nails and thought i might try it on a couple of lures. not only did she have red, orange, black, silver etc. but some metallic colors as well. definitely worked on the fish, although my painting skills leave a lot to be desire. ( i,m sure i could paint my own crawdad orange)

Nail polish is great! I've been using for the past decade. It dries fast and hard, putting on a couple coats doesn't take too long. Nail polish is great for spoons too. I have some black/pearlescent spoons that are killers for pike. Another little trick is going to the craft department at your local Wally world etc. you can find lots of stuff for lure making, you'd be surprised at how much less beads cost there as opposed to the tackle dept. You can peruse the aisles there and start making stuff up as you go along, it's quite inspirational.
God lyk!

Try using glow in the dark paint!
I paint them on the belly of my floating rapalas and give them a shot of light before I put them out night trolling behind my boat. Works pretty good, you can really see the glow of the paint!
Good Luck!

    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
