3 Oz Dahtah Lure Kits Hey I'm from Mass what can I say I pahk my cah in my yahd :)

Another Salty's kit exclusive! 3 Oz size, stainless steel thru-wired this is an exact copy of an original Danny Pichney darter!
These will swim with a wide darting action from side to side. These were fish slayers a quarter century ago and we've re-created them!
Many lure makers have copied this exact style body as it was so effective.
All kits are sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal sanding-see the special notes below!

All components are included except for split rings and hooks, which we recommend VMC 4/0 treble hooks for the belly
and tail of this lure. We use only USA made components in our kits!

This lure is an advanced kit. It requires gluing/epoxying the nose wire in, minor sanding, and painting/finishing.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled with precision and duplication second to none!

Can be painted with Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more durability.
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. More information on our free lure forum linked above.
We carry a full line of epoxy topcoats, hooks, paint, etc here: Lure Hardware

Lures sold individually.

Special notes on finishing this lure. Do not use any more than 220 grit sandpaper on the nose of this lure.
If you sand the nose too much you will ruin the action of this lure and it won't swim right.
I recommend that you very lightly "debur" the edges of the face of the lure using light finger pressure in a direction from the outside to the inside
so that you don't cause any splintering, and very lightly touch up the front of the lure with 220 or 400 sandpaper so that you don't remove any stock.
Don't use a real thick coat of epoxy on these, keep them lightweight, and always use a loop knot on the front, never tie direct.
Please read the pictorial and front swivel/nose loop setting on this lure.

Through wire should be installed with belly swivels etc before lure is sealed/painted. 

Recent Feedback...

"The darters swim sweet!"

"Swims pretty sweet."

"Wow you nailed it with that darter. Best one I've ever fished and earned a spot in my bag. The action is sick!"

"WOW! I am impressed with the swimming action, but even more impressed when used like a jerkbait,
the slow rise makes it nearly neutrally buoyant and I am seeing depths of 6-8 feet – that works great for the edges of the weedbeds for those crazy muskies!!"
