Nice looking baits Chip. I see you painted the lips, was that planned? If so, how do you keep the paint on (devcon?).

As I write this reply, These baits are on the turner with their second coat of envirotex. These are reproductions of a 1970's lure called the Charlie-O. A friend of mine who bought out the entire (100's) inventory wanted me to duplicate a rare pattern called the physco. I signed them so they appeared as reproductions and not counterfits.
The lips were painted on the original bait as the lip was molded into it.

You did a fantastic job on those lures! Looks exactly like the Charlie-Os. I bought six of the Charlie O lures from your friend and I love em. They are awesome. I plan on buying more!
