I'm guessing he was talking about using it like a menhaden oil drip.

I have MirroLures with rust stains on em, I'm sorry to say. Wonder if the menhaden oil would work like a rust preventative and attractant all in one?

Anyone game to try this?

I hate rusty lures

But Im to sceptical to spray wd40 on my lures, I dont even like the scent of it. Ive gotton to the point where I just change my hooks out when needed and "try" to rinse them off before putting them away in the box, that seems to help. But honestly its hard to keep a lure for that long anyhow. Not a suprise when a squirrel fish wraps me in a tree hahaha

Your lures do look clean though. So in that perspective ur doing right.

Here's a good question, any of yall re-use a circle hook if you switch it out? Do you put it back in with the rest?

Bass Fishing = WD40 for me. I've never tried it on saltwater lures though.

Default Swapping out hooks

Anyone have a convenient method for replacing hooks on lures? Seems like there must be an easier way to replace a hook on a mirrolure, for example. By easier, I mean a method where I don't end up hooking myself, bending that mini key ring too much, or throwing the lure away in frustration.

Definetly check out shimano's or any name brand split ring plier. The tips on cheap versions will wear down.

Also, I bought a regular and red hook repair kit off amazon. One of these

If there is any rust on any of the screws/mounts i can switch them out for new ones.
