I ordered a few different trap blanks to paint and was looking for feedback on patterns, I probably haven't thrown one more than a dozen times in the last few years, but need to start. I know Rayburn red and other red craw patterns are popular. What other patterns are good to throw? Probably be throwing on roberts mostly maybe Rayburn a little.

It's hard to beat chrome with a blue back, but I like a pattern that includes white on the sides.

My favorite is French pearl bluegill. From SKs red eye series. It's a good dark colored bait for this muddy water we've had this year.

Doing a actual chrome mirror finish with a airbrush is dang near impossible I have yet to figure out a way to do it. I have found some new mirror chrome paint that is made for airbrushing and need to get it in and test it out. I have a few other ways to do it but they are not durable enough to be viable options. I'm not comfortable selling someone a bait that the finish chips off after a few fish. Hopefully the new chrome paint I have in route will be the ticket. Other options would be to do a holographic foil and paint over, but personally on a trap I would prefer a chrome base to do most of the chrome patterns. Should have my traps and chrome airbrush paint this week and will be doing a couple to test out.


Then I'll have to figure out where I can go to throw them since ray bob is closed.

Make a tomato craw with a really bright belly. One one use a dark red with a bright belly. On the other use a bright red and use a bright belly.
