Broken Crankbait Lip Repair!

Recommended Posts

While shore fishing the other day, i came across this poor lure with no lip or hooks or anything on it but a really clean body. So i brought it home and look at it on how im going to repair it and saw that one of my rapala's had a very soft plasticky lip and thought i can use something similar! I had some clear styrene plastic from car model building and used that as a lip. I didnt get any before photos as i didnt think about it. Started off dremeling the excess off the old lip that was still there to give me a nice base to work with. After that, i simply drew a lip on the styrene and cut it and glue it on with cement. here is how it look with no shaping or sanding.

While waiting for the lip to dry, i went ahead and added some feathers to the rear treble.

once the cement dried, i used the dremel to shape the lip more evenly and eventually sand it off. heres the full shot.

it actually swims really really nice. just have to shave it slightly as it swims to the left when reeled in fast. which isnt a problem with me as i use this as a jerk bait.

i have tried searching everywhere and can anyone identify this lure?

Looks like a cheap Renegade minnowbait to me. Wal-Mart usually has them in a dump bin for a couple bucks but I've seen a bunch of fish get caught on those cheap baits.
