HELP?! Beginner here!

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I'm totally new at lure making and need some pointers.  Wanting to make hard baits for bass, & blue gill.  I DON'T HAVE MUCH MONEY TO SPEND, so please nothing to fancy or expensive!  I need a decent clear coat that doesn't cost an arm & a leg; any suggestions?  All tips help!

Lot's of clearcoat possibilities. From inexpensive to expensive. One really inexpensive way that works pretty good is to go to a big box store and get some  2 part epoxy.... ($5-$7), you know, the one in the syringes.  Mix it up and brush it on. Be sure to get the one labeled 'clear'.  or it might dry yellow. You'd have enough to do a few lures with that. There are lots of other choices too but they would probably be more expensive.

Rustoleum X2 Gloss Clear Acrylic, two quick coats, will work, and it's only $5+- a can.

I would go with this idea if you want to keep it cheap and simple to try out lure building.

Epoxy opinions are cheap but you also need a lure turner that increase the cost

What size clevise do I need for #3 or #4 Colorado spinner blades?

I use the wire size to judge which clevis to use.
