Rust Removal on fishing equipment


Lunker

Question

Anyone have any good ideas for removing rust from fishing lures and other stuff. I don't mean the hooks, but when the rust stains the paint on jigs and other lures it really sucks. Any solutions besides scrubbing? It's hard to scrub a little jig so I was hoping there are some liquid solutions they could be soaked in. Thanks

I personally find WD40 to be junk, but it is the best stuff in the world at removing rust. And when your stuff is clean, put an "Inhibitor" VCI chip in your box.


I know, real guys have a love affair with WD40, but as far as lubricants go, it definitely has superiors.

Although that is a good idea, I'd like to keep my lures from all smelling like wd-40.

Many people swear by WD40 as a fish attractant. Think I'm kidding? Wait for the responses............

They don't put WD40 next to the fish attractants in the sporting goods stores to keep the lids lubed up. It's there because it's requested so much. I personally dont use it but many do.

I use WD-40 on my spawn sacks while salmon fishing. Others I know use it on thier lures. That and anus(sp?) grin.gif oil has a scent that fish like for some reason. The lure slides down thier throats too!

Can it be luck,
Just so we don't confuse too many people, I think what you were refering to was "Anise Oil" the stuff that smells like black jelly beans. If it really was anus oil, I stand corrected.

Sorry Lunker for straying off course. smile.gif I can relate to your problem, I can't count how many baits that have been ruined or stained by rust. I wonder if something like Oxy-Clean would work? Scrubbing sucks! Trying to scrub and hold those small baits and jigs can leave you with cramped up hands. It would be nice to have a solution that you can dip them in and requires minimal work. Oil and lubes will work, but who wants that all over everything? I have a habit of takeing all my new lures out of thier packages and placeing them in my tackle boxes, leaveing them exposed to rust. They probably design lures to rust...So we buy more!! smile.gif

Sooooo..Lunker won't listen, but, WD40! Just try it buddy. One lure. I'll even buy it from you if I'm wrong.

Anything slightly acidic will work as a rust remover. The more acidic the better but you'll have to watch out not to "burn" the rest of the lure. Limit contact time and you should be alright. Usually no worries about lingering scent with this also. I could recommend a few products but I would guess the most widely available and most recognized name would be CLR. You can pick it up at most stores.

I don't know how well this works but I've heard of people using coca cola to remove rust. You just let it sit in it for a while.

I asked the same question a couple months ago. Someone suggested CLR. I bought some and dropped in 50 or so painted jigs with rusted hooks in a cup full and left them over night. The next day I rinsed them off and "presto" good as new.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
