Thanks Dean! That gives me a lot to go off of. I will try some of these things soon and post results. One such being; not pealing the masking off in an upward direction. That very well may have been my mistake. Right now, my painting has been stalled due to >50 degree temps in the garage. A space heater is just not cost efficient for me as this weather is short lived in NC. I will experiment and post results asap.
Thanks again everyone!

I experienced the same problem with the press n seal as did luke1wcu. When I peeled the press n seal off it took some of the paint with it. It didn't take paint from the area that the piece of press n seal was covering ... just a section.
As far as I could tell the paint was dry. I heat seat between each color w/ a hair dryer.
Will have to try it again.

I'm gonna clear coat the bait with a spray can, and then try the press and seal. Has anyone ever tried using foil for masking? It just might be simple enough to work.

ive never used either one of these before but from the description of the "stretch mask" it sounds like it is exactly what ur looking for kris. when im in need of masking film i believe this is the one ill try. hope this helps.

Alot of airbrush guys also use a product from the sign industry commonly referred to as R-tape or Transfer tape.....its whats used to apply vinyl decals, and is the thin film you peel off and throw away. It comes in somewhat of an opaque tan color that you can see thru, but not very well.....it also comes in clear and various width rolls and might work well for lures since the roll widths start at an inch and quarter by 100 yards and cost something like $3.
