Most of the lures I do are old and in need of repair. I actually never paint new ones.
I finished this one a couple weeks ago. I found a really beat up crankbait by a pond in the Central Park. I replenished its hooks, gave it a paint job it desperately needed, and put on a new coat of gloss.
The next one is a Rebel Crickhopper I found by my favorite golf course pond (I think one of my friends left it there). I gave it a new coat of paint and gloss, and the results, I think, were pretty good.
This last one is pretty cool. I don't remember where I got the lure, but it's a walk-the-dog style topwater. I modeled the paint job after a Westslope Cutthroat Trout. It took a while, but the results was worth it.
That's all for now. I realized I should have taken some before-pictures for comparison purpose.
Temperatures are on the rise fast now, and all I have to do is wait for the water levels to go down before I'm back on the water.
