i got a can of this boat finishing type polyurethane and could i use that to finish my lures? i had used epoxy twice before but im now out of epoxy and i wanted to know if that polyurethane would make a nice clear coat.

It may be fairly durable but most polyurethanes also have a reputation for yellowing as they age. If your bait color is compatible, like yellow or chartreuse, it might not be critical, but otherwise....

Also, poly is very brittle unless it's impregnated into a cloth. I would stick with the epoxy.
