I am looking for some guidance, and where better to check than TU?!! What is the best clear coat to use on jigs and spinnerbaits to keep paint chipping at a minimum when bouncing off the rocks?

I like Dick Nite Fishermun's Lurecoat, a moisture cured polyurethane, for coating jig and spinnerbait heads. It was designed to coat metal spoons. Dip them in and hang to dry, dry to touch in an hour, then the moisture cure process begins and makes the coating tougher over about a week. Very thin coating, very clear and non-yellowing. Click on the Dick Nite banner ad here on the site for a discount price, or even a small quantity to try out for the price of shipping. You should search for Dick Nite threads to see its storage and handling requirements. I've also used Devcon 2 Ton Epoxy to coat jig heads and it works well but is much thicker. Get it in a double syringe at Walmart for $2, thoroughly mix it and paint it on with a small brush. Both of them are fairly impact resistant but can be chipped if thrown directly against a rock.

Thank you, I'll give Dick Nite a try. I have some DevCon 2 but wanted other ideas as well.

I have tried Seal Coat and didn't have very good luck with it. I was using 3 coats and even so it marks up very easily. I wouldn't recommend it to others.
