This is kind of off-topic for this forum, but you guys mentioned in another thread on fixing clear coat holes a trick about repair boat gel-coat.
Having a couple that need fixing, I'm curious what that was.

Take some Devcon and place it in the holes on the bait with a toothpick. Place some regular scotch tape over it and let it cure. You just want enough Devcon in the hole to fill it. The tape flattens out the devcon so that you do not have a raise or bump in the lure. If you put too much devcon then you will see an edge where it was flattened out. It doesn't hurt anything, but you will be able to see it some. The tape will not stick to the devcon. You will be able to peel it right off.

sorry I wasn't clearer - I meant what was the trick on the boat repair, not the lure repair.

Use the same technique.
if you need some color you can either paint the hole first or mix some in the epoxy.
If your boat is white (or sort of) you can use appliance touch up paint. blend some almond and white together to match the color of your hull.
