      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Flocking Heads, glue gone. What to do?

Recommended Posts

wallter

Them big foots really used up a lot of glue. What will work for a substitute (black not shiny)? Or where can I buy more?

I've been TOLD you can use flat black spraypaint. Apply flocking before it dries and it sticks, I assume. A little more taping off would be necessary. Maybe paint from a can then also?

Can't say as I've tried it yet.

That's what I've used. Brush it on real thick and apply the flocking. I did a dozen heads a couple weeks ago and it worked great....

You can buy the glue and the flocking at any major craft store, for alot cheaper than the kits.

Really? I checked both Michael's and JoAnn's in Maple Grove and found none. I even asked for help!

Any idea's on how to contain the mess? I did it over a box but man it was all over everything. The room I was in was covered. Maybe a large DEEP Tub (what?) might work???

I use a large deep plastic tub that collects all of the over "puffing" It is really amazing at how little it uses and how much I can reuse. I use flat black rustoleum oil paint. It works great and actually holds the flocking on better than some companies factory jobs. I ordered mine off the internet and paid about half of what my buddy did at Craft Direct. I have enough to do 100 heads and tails and I paid $24.99, he has about 1/10 as much and paid $20.00. So it pays to shop around when looking for flocking.

I also used flat black rustoleum paint as adhesive. Worked great and absolutely no shine. I tried a ghg kit and wasn't happy. The adhesive that came with the kit was very shiny when it hardened. Any imperfection in the flocking job was really magnified. I used a plastic shoe box size container inside of a large plastic storage tub. Shake the flocking onto the head over the small container inside of the larger tub. Makes it easier to reuse the flocking material and keeps the mess relatively contained. I did mine in the basement last winter. I wouldn't do it indoors again. The fumes and flocking dust was intense. Try the garage on a non windy day.

I bought flocking online and used flat rustoleum paint, like the previous poster. Did 2 dozen and they look great. I dumped the material in a small plastic tub. Made a little mess in my workshop, but less that sanding does. I wouldn't use spray paint...too much time taping and it dries too fast (my opinion). Good luck!

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
