Lure sealer

Recommended Posts

With fall bass fishing coming to a close I'm strating to think about turning my own wooden plugs for next spring. There are 15$ to 30$ each and I need something to do fishing related.  I need to find a good sealer to soak my truned plugs in before I paint them any suggestions?

Lotsa stuff available, Alex. I'm using Behr sealant. It's relatively inexpensive and accepts acrylics and oils. Depending on the shape of the wood, I use two coats with sandings in between.

Been making my own plugs for a few years now. Have tried virtually "everything". What works best for me is Envirotex Lite. Get it at Michael's Craft Store when they have a 40% off coupon.

Seal lure with it, sand lighty(fine sand paper or Scotchbrite), paint , seal again. I use 1 coat for some baits but if it's for MR Esox I use a couple of coats--I do not pour as the directions tell you , I brush it on with a cheap disposable brush. If you get bubbles, simply blow/exhale on it, as the CO2 in your breath will bring the bubbles to the surface & burst them. Be certain to mix very well and let dry -be patient!!

Need anything else PM me & I will try to help.

 

Be warned! This part of the hobby is VERY ADDICTIVE. Especially after you get a really good fish on your own lure.
