So I started adding black stripes to many a trolling lure a while back, figuring more contrast from underneath with result in the killing of the lure, it think it helps
I like darker under sides too, as it is opposite to all bait fish that are dark on top and light underneath, so I reckon they should be more visible to fish and therefore die...read that in a Fred Archer book.
Since then I've started adding red near the gills and a yellow tail. Ive seen a lot of bait recently that has a yellow tail and Peter pakula mentioned a similar thing in keel weights he adds to his skirts.
So now I have the collection of nail polish in assorted colors to touch up my lures, more than my wife..not so manly I know but the fish like em Wink if i Could only find a chartreuse almost yellow glow color in a polish I'd be set Smiley
The pic is a rapala on the left and 3 halcos with additional paint work
Any other lure painters, touch-er-up-er-ers?

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

I thought teeth marks speak for themselves Smiley
That silver halco "mullet" has caught 10-15 wahoo in the last week...keep having to repaint the yellow tail on it as it gets chewed off Smiley it caught a 14.5 kg yf tuna too, my 7 year old reeled that and many of the wahoo in himself Smiley I just steer the boat and gaff for him Smiley
The sailfish is he biggest fish yet, 45lb. Not on a halco, but I just wanted to bag on my boy Smiley he Loves is shimano TLD 2 speed Smiley he gains victory over the beasts of the deep low gear Smiley

Love the pics of your son with the catch of the day. I am sure that gets you beaming when he hauls them in!
