Painting jerkbaits for big trout

Recommended Posts

Just another quick update/tip on the learning to paint baits journey.  After going through 2 sets of BSI 30 minute epoxy, I finally got it down pretty good with mixing 3 second pours from the  heated bottles and thinning with denatured alcohol as needed. Still had a few blemishes in the finish. I purchased some KBS top coat a while back but was hesitant in using it for fear of not quite as good of a finish that I was getting from the epoxy and the care that has to be taken in resealing the KBS due to contact with moisture in the air will start to set the cure.

Found an old fashion wide mouth Mason jar and some silicone insert sealing rings to store the KBS in. I also got a can paint saver air displacement stuff to spray under the lid of the Mason jar after use to keep it from starting to set. The KBS was $58 per quart so I would like it  to last as long as possible.  

I now just hang the baits on a paper clip and put a drip wire in the bottom eye, dip, hang, and done!  The finish is fantastic!

          Well at least some of us can say we knew him before he hit it big time :) . We knew him when he was just a top notch guide in Alaska . Now he runs a custom bait manufacturing company. Someday folks will covet these lures like the wigglewort. They will be traded and put in display boxes and handed down for generations. Dang,

                You don't have enough money for the limited edition one. I have seen and even touched one then wiped off the fingerprints. The things are even better in person, truthfully they are,

One would think after "seven" pages, a picture of a big brown trout caught on these specially modified lures would surface.

Then, of course, one would have to go fishing first.

I guess you missed a post where the first fish caught on one was a 20 inch brown.  

But then again one would have to read all 7 pages first....
