  1. That sounds great. Never heard of etching primer, where do you get that? Thanks for the help sir
  2. Thanks Cadman, what I was thinking was getting some primer maybe then some metal paint to put a base boat on a spoon. Then paint with my acrylics, and then finish it off with Devcon...what'cha think?
  3. I think this is the right category. Do any of you know the best way to paint metal spoons? And will DC2 stick to metal and will it last? Thanks

    Shad with light back
  5. I use dt2 and hang mine. I just pay attention and if I see a drip happening I flip it. It sets up enough not to drip pretty quick

    Hello, I sent you a message on your website. Love your baits but you're out of the colors I need. Do you know when you'll have the colors you re out of?

    do you sell these bad boys
  9. Well I'm not sure about Musky plug knockers but I can tell you what works unbelievable well for smaller baits. I get a big salt water lead weight, I think they're bell type weights and have the swivel type hookup molded in. You attach a snap or swivel to the weight and when you're hung up just attach the weight to your line via the snap and slide it down your line. This costs you about $1.50 and so far for me, its been 100% effective. There have been times where it takes me a few minutes but you just keep jerking your rod tip and eventually the weight works your bait lose. It works crazy good for as simple as it is. I use I think, 2 oz to 4 oz weights. I'm not sure if this would work on a big musky bait but it's good to have one in your boat.
  10. Great information Dave, thanks a lot. I am definitely going to try it...reeeeal slow
  11. :DI do fish taxidermy also so I classify my man cave as...well...busy

    Split Rings

    Yeah, I didn't know there were such split rings, I'd never seen them like that before. I just thought they were a good price

    Split Rings

    Different places sell them, Jann's Netcraft is another idea. Just don't make the mistake I did, I tried to save some money and found some (dang it I can't remember where now) that were pretty cheap. I thought split rings are split rings, well they're not. These are a gold color but they bend really easy. When I'm using the split ring pliers they bend very easy and I've thrown more away than used. I don't trust a big fish wouldn't pull the hooks off
  14. Sonoman, I thought of that also but I can't remember if I was using the lacquer thinner on those baits or not but that's very possible Hawgfan, thanks for you help. I didn't think of the diving deeper angle....hummm, not sure now lol. Don't really want it to go deeper. Thanks guys for your help, anyone else have any ideas about the pinkish baits feel free to pass them on.
  15. OK, I use Devcon Two to finish my baits and I thin it with alcohol (I used to use lacquer thinner to thin it). Can anyone tell me why some of my baits turn a pinkish color over time. There was a post on here a while back stressing the proper mixing and someone said to add the alcohol after it's mixed so now I do this and mix really well. But could this be from not mixing it or something? Next, I have a big shallow crankbait, a Bagleys Monster Shad if you're familiar with that. It has a pretty wide wobble and I'm thinking of altering it so that it doesn't. Does anyone know if I can shave the lip down, make it a little thinner, if it will change the action? Or are baits perfectly balanced and if I do it it will mess the action up
  16. I do this with my brushes also. I don't know what kind they are, they're the ones you get at the hobby store that are metal with the stiff black brush??? Cheap lol, but I reuse the heck out of those. After each use I clean them in Lacquer thinner and then reclean them with mineral spirits. I've had them start getting stiff and those I throw away. But I reuse several things cause I'm cheap. Here's my whole process; I mix the epoxy and paint a couple lures. Take a paper towel and wipe the access off of brush and clean it off in the Lacquer thinner . Then I take a paper towel and wipe the access out of the two cups that I used to mix it, pour lacquer thinner in the cups and wash them good with the brush, cleaning brush at the same time. Then wipe the cups out. Then start the whole process over for the next two or three baits. At the end of the day I pour the lacquer thinner back in the can to reuse later. Its a long process to epoxy a couple baits but saves me some money. On a side note, the little plastic sticks that are used to paint small spots...I wash those out after use, dry them carefully and blow on them to fluff them back out and get many uses out of them, just have to be gentle. Does anyone else do all of this or am I the only insane one
