You should use that one part fast drying stuff compatible with all other coatings that levels like a dream and cures to a rock hard, crystal clear waterproof and hookproof coating in 12 hours. The kind you can leave in the can on your bench indefinitely without it going bad, curing, or turning brown. You know, the one that costs $25 per quart.

I've been spit-polishing all of mine. It is a rather involved technique that most people will want to try to shortcut, but hey, there are no shortcuts when it comes to the best baits!!!
