  1. I can get close by test floating a jerkbait in 60 degree water in my shop. My water gets colder than that, but I use is as a starting point. On the water, I can adjust the float/sink by using either monofilament, which floats, or fluorocarbon, which sinks. Close counts. As long as the bait moves very slowly, either up or down, at rest it will work. Having the patience to test in the shop is the key, because I start with a known quantity that I can adjust on the water.

  2. I am working on it, but I just cannot get the math to work. It would only be a guestimate in any case, as the falling shape of the lure (area) is a part of the equation, and the cross sectional shape. It is all about the coefficient of drag. I will work on it a while longer, but will probably have to let it go, like I did last time. Dave

  3. If I am making a bait that I’m likely to lose a lot of, then fingernail polish is fine. If it’s a bait that I’m not likely to lose and will use overtime, then I powder paint.

  4. Personally I'm not a fan of nail polish. I certainly don't like the smell. I also prefer the look and texture of the cured powder paint over the nail polish. Nail polish can be done cheaper though. I vote for powder paint but I have lots of it and the fluid beds, curing oven etc. already.

  5. If you are just looking to take the shine off of the shiny lead jigheads to fish them and make them look more natural you can paint them with a permanent marker such as a black or brown sharpie . The paint job will rub off over time from rocks but if you bring the pen along you can touch up the bare spots . Not as good looking as paint but works surprising well in a pinch .
