I need to epoxy, and I live in a dorm. I was wondering if there is any epoxy or some sort of final coat I could put on my bait. I dont want to be sniffing thhe junk all day, so I need something that maybe you can use inside. Any ideas or is there nothing I can do?

Most of the epoxys will be fine to use... some of them have a slight smell but nothing that would have the RA's knocking on your door.

Ha ha!! I used to do that all the time. I alway just set my baits by the window and leave it slightly open. Now the thing that makes people mad was me spraypainting primer onto my lure bodies in the hallway. Stunk up the whole place.

If you use Devcon 2ton,you will be fine..very little smell and it sets up fast.If your only doing a couple baits at a time,you can rotate by hand..Nathan

I'd also choose Devcon 2 Ton epoxy. Comes in a double syringe at Walmart for about $2, enough for 5-6 bass baits. Buy the 2 Ton only, not the 5 min epoxy that cures much to fast to use as a clearcoat. Mix it thoroughly in a jar lid or the package blister and brush it on. If you don't have a lure turner, hang it up and switch it tail/nose every 2-3 mins for 30 mins. I bent a simple "C" hanger out of spare wire for hanging mine. The epoxy is usually touchable in 5 hrs and will be fishable in 24 hrs if you mixed it properly. Clean your brush with acetone or lacquer thinner.

Has college changed or what? The smell of epoxy was the last thing we were worried about comming from a dorm room.
