I used marine epoxy because I wanted to make sure the plug would not seperate/split. The sides that are bonded together are rough in order to give the epoxy something to bite/grip. The epoxy has a thicker consistency which made filling the areas where the rattle and thru wire are easier to fill and stay put. I think the etex would require a filler in order to get it to stay put and not run/drip out. Hopefully the weather will warm up and I will be able to finish painting with the airbrush, which must be done in the cold garage.

For the most part I fish the Cape Cod Canal which dosen't allow swimming although I would be tempted anywhere else to take the swim. Hopefully it dosen't happen but if it dose I'll post which way the current was going and wish who ever finds it good luck and perhaps a finders fee upon it's return.

Here are the eyes. I start with plastic cat eyes, mine have painted backs,

the first step is to remove the paint. I use acetone and try to keep from getting it on the front. (READ WARNINGS ON CAN)

The next step is to apply the secondary color (gold) dabbed on in small amounts. And then protect the front (I stick mine in plumbers putty) from paint overspray and then spray the backside with chrome spray can paint.

The eye on the left has a haze the occurred when acetone comes in contact with the front, the one on the right has been fixed using heat to remove the haze (keep the heat source moving while the eye slowly heats up and starts to clear) the eye will become crystal clear agian.

It's awesome. Great job. It looks so tasty I would bite it. Rather than losing it I'd be more worried about a monster Blue mangling it up. Sandy Hook Blues are famous for mangling expensive plugs - they'll bite just about anything..

Thanks to the warm weather I was able to get the main color sprayed today. It only took 4 attemps before I was happy and the airbrush did not spit. I have decided to paint the upper portion slightly different this time after looking at hundreds of images of herring,so I sealed this coat. I will scuff it before the upper color, I hope to spray it soon weather permitting. Then install the eyes and top coat with envirotex lite while its on the spinner using heat to eliminate any air bubbles before it sets up(for those of you that can paint in a climate controlled area this should complete the build).
