There are many small things you can modify at home on your lures. A lot of these things are huge confidence boosters for me.
Most of these modifications just take to much time to try and do on the water, but there are a few ways to make them quick and efficient on the water.
Quick Bloody Gills
One of these small mods I like to do is add a red gill on my soft plastic swimbaits. I use soft plastic paint from LureCraft.
This paint comes in big containers that are frankly a pain in the ass to keep on my boat. So what I like to do is get an old nail polish bottle, rinse it out with acetone, then fill it up with the soft plastic paint. The containers have an application brush for quick easy on the water mods.
