My name is Mark, I live in Raleigh NC and have been fishing since I can remember. I had a friend introduce me to the site once I became interested in painting crankbaits and the rest is history. I can see this being an addictive hobby...haha, but it cannot be any worse than cars, which I work on day and night!
Ok, enough of the life story. I painted this popper earlier today (my first lure ever painted) just messing around and then tried my skills on an old glass rap i had. I am very please with the outcome of the glass rap especially being one of the first ones I have ever really painted. The popper...ehhh, thats a different story:lol: I just grabbed some old car paint off some old projects and had a ball. let me know what you think, good and bad criticism is more than welcome. Thanks
(btw...yes, i did mess up the eye on the popper )

For your first ever paint jobs, you really knocked it out of the park. Don't forget to post those in the HardBait Gallery ~ those are poppin'
