Yes, we can paint our lures to meet your specific and custom requests! But, please keep reading because it’s a little more complicated than simply “hey can you paint some [insert your favorite color here]?”
All of the lures we make have been designed, prototyped, tested, (redesigned when needed), tweaked, tested some more, and proven. So, for that reason, we don’t really like to mess too much with success. For example, yes, we can make a Mully slightly heavier or slightly lighter weight, but we can’t ensure it will fish if we make those kinds of changes. Same goes for all our other plugs as well, though some lure bodies are more forgiving than others. Cutting one of our lures shorter, sanding the bottom flat, or otherwise altering a lure design can also have negative impacts.
Painting and color combinations, however, are a totally different story! As far as we’re concerned, we’re happy to paint our lure bodies in just about any color scheme you can come up with. Our one and only major caveat is that we need to get a very clear idea from our clients of EXACTLY how you want the lure to look.
If you look through all the pictures of our lures and you don’t quite see what you’re looking for, you already have a good idea of what we can paint. Whether you want the head to be one color and the body to be another, or if you want the back/sides/belly all different colors… all of that is easily in our capabilities. Again, as long as we know exactly what you’re looking for.
We’re sorry to say that artistic designs, patterns, and other intricate work isn’t something we’ve mastered (yet). While we’re happy to try new things and combine colors and layering to come up with unique color schemes, we can’t promise much more than that. Lures with the American flag, your favorite band’s album cover, or an ultra-realistic fin and scale pattern are still a little out of our expertise.
Take a look at all the lure colors we have on our webite, facebook, and instagram, and let us know how we can best serve you. If you’d like to combine or mix-and-match some of the colors you see on our website, that should be pretty straightforward and easy for us. For example, if you wanted a Needlefish with a bright pink back and a bone white belly… all you’ve got to do is say so.
If you’re looking for some new and unique color, like a variation of the colors we already paint, the more details you can provide the better! Got a picture of another lure, a car, or a baitfish you’d like me to match? Super, send the pictures over!
Prices will start at whatever lure body you’re looking to have painted, as all of our normal prices are set based on cost of materials and labor. Prices might go up or down slightly dependent on the requested order; small vs large quantity, difficulty, variety, etc.
Feel free to reach out via email, facebook messenger, or instagram DM to get the ball rolling. We’ll quickly provide some time and cost estimates as soon as we have an idea of your requests.
