3 Oz Bottle Swimmer Lure Kits

3 Oz size, stainless steel thru-wired this is a great casting swimmer! These will swim with a real sweet tail waggle on top on a slow retrieve and dive down a few feet on a faster retrieve.
These were made as finished a few years ago and were fish slayers!
All kits are sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal sanding-see the special notes below!

Kit is weighted with one belly weight only-can easily be re-drilled for heavier weight in the chin and behind the existing belly weight.
This will allow it to swim much deeper.
This swimmer is a copy of an original 1950's Stan Gibbs Swimmer lure with our own weighting scheme.
It has a large chin for maximum durability.
All components are included except for split rings and hooks which we recommend a VMC 4/0 treble hook for the belly
and 6/0 Siwash or a buck tail stub on the tail of  this lure.
We use only USA made components in our kits!

This swimmer is a good intermediate kit. It requires gluing the weight in, minor sanding, and painting/finishing.
You may have to re-drill the through hole once the weight is glued in, it's very very close. Recommend an 1/8" drill bit in a battery drill and be very careful.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled with precision and duplication second to none!

Can be painted with Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more durability.
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. Checkout our Super Coat, it makes a great wood sealer and Top Coat!

Special notes on finishing this lure. Do not use any more than 220 grit sandpaper on the nose of this lure.
If you sand the nose too much you will ruin the action of this lure and it won't swim right.
I recommend that you very lightly "debur" the edges of the face of the lure using light finger pressure in a direction from the outside to the through hole
so that you don't cause any splintering, and very lightly touch up the front of the lure with 220 or 400 sandpaper so that you don't remove any stock.
Don't use a real thick coat of epoxy on these, keep them lightweight, and always use a loop knot on the front, never tie direct.
