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!
