  1. I had to stop using AC1315. Something in it messes with my head. I tried using it outside with a fan I even bought a respirator and used goggles and it still burns my eyes and gives me a headache so it's in the garbage with that and back to auto clear and D2T.

  2. I used nason auto clear from orielys it's inexpensive. Mark I have sprayed laquer for years without a respirator with zero problems and the concert sealer is worse one me than the laquer. I had to buy a respirator to use the concrete sealer and it still burns my eyes I guess I'm going to have to get a full face respirator. I'm not saying you don't need a respirator to spray laquer and I may die tomorrow but it has never bothered me but the concert sealer bothers me. I guess everyone is different.

  3. I wonder if the solvent in the AC1315 plays nice with lacquer paint. Even though it's not as bad as some other finishes, it still has some nasty solvent in it. I always dip and hang outside, if possible, because of the fumes.

    Do a test on something before you ruin a lure.

    i just diped my first bait and wow. I painted this bait a few monts ago and diped yesterday and it still looked great last night so maybe I won't have any problems with the laquer paint reacting.

  4. Hahaha

    Just be sure to use multiple thin coats, and heat set/dry each coat well, or your paint will wrinkle.

    I've had it happen a couple of times. I redipped, and fished those lures with no problems, so it still protects. It's just not as pretty anymore.

    I use lacquer paints so I don't have to heat set my paint. I have a heat gun so I will try to give a little heat to the sealer as it cures.

  5. McLuvin you da man. I understand about the bleeding you speak of. I wondered why some worms would bleed(like cotton candy charteuse tail,if one of the worms in the pack was the opposite of the others they will bleed chartreuse on the whole worm) and others won't. I'm sure these worms have dye in them. These worms are probably 15 years old and I've changed the bag twice and the whole inside of the bag is orange. I will test this afternoon to make sure and try your suggestions. Thanks


  6. This is a gill raker crawdad colored worm I need to replicate. They quit making this color 10 or 15 years ago. I don't have very many colors to chose from so I'm sure I will have to order some colors to make that orangeish gold colored bottom. Any ideas for a recipe to make that color.

  7. I got the email saying it shipped Monday morning before I saw this post. It's not a big deal if it's something I can't live with I will exchange it or remove the slot myself. Thanks for the heads up I have heard nothing but good things about there customer service.
