I want to add eyes to some flukes. I have the stick on ones but what do I need to do to make them very durable? Just sticking them on looks like they wouldn’t stay on very long.

I’m not sure any are very durable but typically you would dip the head in clear plastic to seal the eyes in.

a lot of people use some kind of super glue. I would have to look up the specific brand they use on the plastics. Look up the soft plastic bait groups on facebook. they have great info in there!

The flukes aren’t that durable, I even question the eyes on the other soft plastic jerk bait. But if you do, the plastic glue that is the king for swimbait fishermen is Mend-It.
