      Prayers for a longtime Member   11/05/2017

      The Church mass shooting that happened today, was Peggy Wardens Church. She was one of the people killed today and her grandson was shot in the arm and is in surgery. Lets keep her in our thoughts and prayers. I made a topic in the "Cabin" I will keep everyone updated as I get information.

Custom Painted Fishing Baits

14 posts in this topic

I decided to try my hand at airbrushing some crankbaits so I ordered several clear bodies in a couple of different sizes and styles. Got them this week and started going at it. Still waiting on the hooks to arrive for the larger baits and then will be ready to head out to the lake one day to give them a try.

Thanks guys. I only bought 16 bait blanks and have painted them all so had to order some more. I think I found a new addiction. :o:D

Great job! I'm hooked on bass fishing but our little boy keeps me from getting out as much as I would like to.

Here is 1 more that I did. This was an old balsa wood lure that I have had for many, many years and caught lots of fish on. Several years ago the eye for the belly hook had broke off and some of the paint had started coming off so I just stashed it away and didn't use it anymore. I decided to try to revive this one since it was always one of my favorites so I replaced the belly hook hanger, removed all of the paint all the way down to bare wood, gave it a good sanding and coated with clear epoxy. The paint scheme is almost identical to the original except I added a little dusting of a pearlized silvery/green over the entire lure at the end and put on some 3D eyes instead of painting them on like the original.

A generous cost of clear epoxy over the paint at the end to finish it just like the others. The top 2 pics are of the finished project and the next 2 are of the original lure.
