Clearcoats.

Devcon 2 Ton 30-minute epoxy would be best to start with. You can thin it and give yourself more time by mixing a little rubbing alcohol in with it. There are other clearcoats out there but start with this until you get some experience.

There are several good clearcoats.  Slow cure epoxies like Devcon Two Ton (and others), moisture cured urethanes (MCU) like KBS, and uv cured polyurethanes.  Of all of these, the MCUs are easiest to use - just dip and hang the lure to cure hard.  KBS Diamond coat MCU is the most popular brand and is sold at the KBS site and by many online auto parts sites.  5 miutenepoxy cures too fast to level out properly, will turn brown fairly quickly, and is water resistant versus waterproof.

how about a polyurethane? 

It gets the job done but it is slightly hazy and takes several coats to build up. But if you are just starting out, not sure if you really want to invest. Its a very doable option. Plus its easy to apply and ready for use within a couple of days. 
kbs diamond clear or uv resin are typically what i prefer going with.

how good is the Gorilla Glue 5 minute epoxy? I started making my own top water WTD lures 

Great and this is my go to for affixing weed guards and 3d eyes.  Not so good for clear coat though
