just after some advice on how to stop my lures from rusting. it seems that all of my owner/VMC trebles and split rings are starting to rust up, while my cheapo lure's hooks (with a silvery finish) are not.

i wash them in fresh water and leave them to dry, but thats about it. can i spray them with cooking oil or similar, or do i just buy new trebles and rings?

does anyone else have this problem, and how do you fix it?

thanks in advance guys and gals :D 8)

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.

haha redphoenix :p

i have used baby powder before... it kept my lures rust free... though now i usually just rinse with freshwater then dry with towel and leave in sun for 2 or 3 mins.... then i put them into my plano waterproof tackle trays... maybe this is why they are still rust free??? as no moisture can get in maybe?

For years I used baby powder on my tackle, but everything deteriorated anyway :lol:

Might just be an age thing though :roll:

I dont like to fiddle with my tackle to much I find that if you handle it to much it tends to become a hard habit to break out of. Potentially growing into a huge problem that needs a helping hand, or 2 from a professional.

:shock:

:oops:

Some have a bigger tackle box than others :(

I recently ordered a bunch of owner trebles from campbells pro tackle ($5 a packet cheaper than the shops) to replace the rusting hooks on my beloved Yamaria Princess. First time I've ever done it and found out just how handy long nose pliers are.

Something I've found to work for me, is keeping a couple of those little silica satchels that are used in packaging to keep out moisture. You know the ones that say "do not eat" on them. They seem to work quite well. I just chuck them in my lure box .

I've taken to dropping lures into a jar of fresh water (Dodge jar?) when changing 'em on the water. Then dry 'em off before dropping back into my waterproof tackle boxes, which every now & then cop a spray with garlic infused olive oil - helps stop my fingers from smelling too fishy if nothing else.

I use spray olive oil, with garlic. Best of both worlds, stops the rust and is considered by some to be a fish attractant!

cheers all Andybear :lol: :lol:

Just a few days after using my Sx40's at the coast they were rusting :(

I dangled the hooks in vinegar to get the rust off, dried them and then used olive oil spray on em.

They look like new now and the oil makes the lure finish a little more shinier too :D

Cheers
