something I learned the hard way

If your a newbie like me and you use masking tape to cover the bill of the bait before painting, you might want to take the tape off before you apply your clear top coat. On two baits I didn't do this and the clear coat covered part of the tape where the bill meets the body. I had the dickens getting the tape off where the clear coat had covered it.

Isn't it amazing how top coat will stick to and protect masking tape on a bill, but chips and fails when it's on a lure body. :lol:

I'm pretty sure we've all done that at least once. I know I have. :wink:

I guess I do it wrong because I always leave the tape on. I carefully trace the tape with an exacto knife before I remove it.

i had a helluva time trying to get the tape off, i ended up extremely frustrated and smashed the bait to pieces with a sledge hammer :eek::o
