These things happen when you actually fish these lures and not mount them in a framed box on your living room wall. :D

I will be working with DN Lure coat this year though; looking forward to it.

some type of baits I dont care what type of clear will rash. Rattle trap style baits will hook rash easy and t-hooking helps but its not a cure all, Ive tried.

One of the biggest problems with DT2 is Hook rash..however if your sold on it.. you could always fix your rash with more DT2.. But their will come a point when you cant put anymore clearcoat on the bait. I would suggest DN or any moisture cure clearcoat.... just make sure you really heat set your baits or you will experience wrinkles in the paint.

You can go 1 step further after you T your trebles--

bend the 2 hook tines (the 2 on top of the T)AWAY from the lure

so they have a very hard time making contact with the topcoat.

Hook rash means I'm using the bait, if I'm using it that means it catches fish, if it catches fish that means I have confidence in the bait and I use it more so it gets more hook rash.

Hook rash is good for me but toss a T at the hooks it works too

Muskiefool is right....I have posted this before, but for what it's worth, we "T" all our hooks, and use at least three coats of either devcon, etex or new lutstre 55 and trolling 5 to 7 MPH with big baits with big sharp hooks....guess what??? You are going to get hook rash that is a fact.....
