What is you method on making homemade crankbaits?
For the folks that are veterans...
What are your steps
Once you have the pattern cut and sanded, do you seal your bait before you test and paint or do you add hardware and then test before sealing and painting.
Also do you paint and put your finished clear coat on before or after you add the lip

Let me suggest you do a search on this site for information
you are wanting to know. Also check out the hardbait
tutorial's. There is tons of good info here, do your search
for topics like, balsa baits, painting, lips and clearcoating.

I dry fit everything first; lip, weight, screw eyes and hooks to make sure its balanced and sits right in the water. After that, I will seal the bait.
