Jimmy, that is great looking bait. Would you share the recipe for paint scheme? I'm going to Mexico in Feb. and would love to paint some cranks to look like yours, cause the main forage is tilapia.

Thanks

David

Jimmie,

As far as the fins go....I don't put them on my baits yet but from everything I have gathered some folks use a template and some do it by brush. I'm sure you have already figured out that they would have to be very lightly misted on possibly w/ transparent paints to give the right effect.

With the epoxy ( I presume you are talking about clear coat) on the Strike King shad it would help if we knew what kind of paints you were using for one thing but just for reference Dicknites provides a good thin extremely hard coating that does'nt add as much weight as some clears.

This is MHO i'm sure there are others that can add to this

Good Luck and by the way Nice Paint job
