    Which Paint for Whopper Ploppers?

    Not a problem! It's a fun way to recolor lures, especially soft plastics. I even take it on vacations just in case I need to do a color change on my swimbaits.

    Which Paint for Whopper Ploppers?

    I use the Copic Airbrush System for painting lures. It isn't the cheapest method, but it is effective, fast, and requires no cleaning. I just use the cheapest airbrush compressor from Harbor Freight to run the system. Btw, I know this was an old thread, but I noticed you didn't have an answer here, so I thought I'd throw in my two cents

    U Rigs

    I've made my own for quite some time, both three arm and five arm. I use the heaviest stainless solid leader I could get, stainless or brass swivels in I believe size 5, and cross-lok snaps. Use an old 1/2 oz egg sinker mold to form a lead head around the junction of all the arms. Put a split ring on the arms before I attach the swivels so that I can pull it pack down for storage purposes.

    baitcasting reel for skippin?

    +1 on an educated thumb. The reel does not matter AS MUCH as your thumb, which is free to use! Use the gear you have and practice educating your thumb and teaching yourself the correct angles. It takes practice, but once you get it down, it becomes much easier.

    Android Apps - Which ones do you use?

    I use the TVA app almost every day. Also, I really like the Boat Ramps app from Take Me Fishing
